By CD do you mean Construction Document? Look at the thread at the top of the Layout section.
Yes, I was meaning Construction Document. I see your point, this thread might be heading a bit towards the topic you mention. But I think you Sonder and pbacot has shown some nice workflows.
Let us say the model helps speed by generating all at once--but when you get to details, my fear is that I might have too much more to deal with than in CAD, time being a factor. The patterns must read in grayscale. You don't have traditional graphic symbols to help if a texture is not explicit. Darker images can cause conflict with text, leaders, and line work. You must draw and texture a 3d object instead of (say, for rebar) a dashed line or a dot.
Is this something that would work? My view of a theoretical workflow would be do sections with TIG's sectioncut. Then use my(upcoming) plugin to do the hatching/details. For ex the insulation you can name desired number of rows in width. And scale it in the other direction.
When done swith over to LO for additional detailing.
Woulden't that be a decent workflow eliminating the need for CAD(of choice)?
The lines renders great when printing from LO. And can be exported or hidden as well..
PS: I'm not trying to promote my plugin, just want some ideas for whats needed in conjuction with LO to satisfy timnors and others request.
