Working with Architectural Drawings

ICE features elevation properties and layers that you can use to create and polish architectural drawings in ICEcad. These properties automate the process of creating clean, organized architectural drawings. You can use ICEcad layers to control what you display in your Shop Drawing, isolating important components and hiding irrelevant information. Adjust elevation properties within ICEcad or ICE to automatically update spacing, fonts sizes, and dimensions for selected elevations.
