The Publisher Sets in Detail

Publisher Sets will help you automate the processes of: Printing, Exporting as PDF – all drawings in one file, Exporting as PDF – each drawing in a separate file, Exporting as DWG and other cool things like; Batch Rendering (multiple renders in a queue) and Exporting BIMx files.

All of this with pre-set content, naming conventions, and predefined configurations… all with a couple of clicks.

 

The Hall&Hart Template comes with a Publisher Set for:

 

  • 01 – BROCHURE PLANS
  • 02 – DRAWINGS TO PDF DA
  • 03 – DRAWINGS TO PDF CD
  • 04 – DRAWINGS TO DWG
  • 05 – BIMx PRESENTATION
  • 06 – BIMx CONSTRUCTION

Let’s take a closer look:

01 – BROCHURE PLANS

 

This will export a Single PDF file with the content as pages. Make sure you verify the Name of the File and the Path every time you Publish this set.

Two separate Subsets have been sourced from the Layout Book this time, they include the base layouts of the DA/CDC Plans as well as the Construction specific layouts from the Construction Plans Subset. These have again been included as a shortcut so that any layouts added into the Subset will automatically be copied into this Publisher Set.

 

04 – DRAWINGS TO DWG

 

This Set will export DWG files as a Real Folder Structure. This means that each layout will export as a single DWG File.

05 – BIMx PRESENTATION

 

This Set will upload a BIMx File to your free Model Transfer Site which, as a Select User, entitles you to 5mb of free space.

You will need to go through the following steps to accomplish the Upload:

  1. You will need to sigh in with your Graphisoft ID. If you do not have one you can create one here.
  2. Once Signed in correctly, you have to choice to upload to the Public Domain or the Company’s Private Folder. If selecting the Private Folder you can also designate a specific sub folder.
  3. The Project Name can be changed here.
  4. This checkbox allows you to save a local copy to a location of your choice if you wish.
  5. By default the Info Set has been selected as Categories and Properties. This means that any piece of information you have included in the Categories and properties portion of your model elements will be mapped to those same elements in BIMx, resulting in the elements storing more information for viewers of the BIMx model to access.
    • Other Sets can be selected and custom schedules can be also be created for use.
