Ceiling Grid
« on: January 30, 2017, 10:00:59 pm »
How do I do a ceiling grid in AutoCAD for a section of rooms and a hallway that are at an angle?

If the rooms are at an angle and you are matching that angle, you can draw a line along the wall and then move it to the midpoint of the room (using an OSNAP) where you can then offset it to create the grid.  If you are using hatch to create the ceiling grid, select the wall and open Properties to find out the angle of the wall.  You can then set the hatch to be at that angle within the hatch properties. If you are setting the ceiling grid at an angle as a design feature that doesn't match the angle of the walls, you can determine the angle you want to use, maybe stick to 30 or 45 degree angles and do the same process of either drawing a line in the center of the room and using offset or setting the hatch pattern at an angle.  Hopefully that helps!
