1Greetings .1-1 FENCES 19 eKIT OVERVIEW
Introduction
Thank you for your interest in the Fences eKit by ARCHIdigm.  Before you decide to purchase this product we would like to inform you about what you get and how it works so you don't end up buying something you don't want.

This kit is not a software product and it does not do anything on its own..  It is a library of Object Styles and MvBlocks designed exclusively for Autodesk's AutoCAD Architecture 2017 and up CAD program.

AutoCAD Architecture has no native Object Styles for Fences so we utilized Railing Styles, Curtain Wall Styles, Wall Styles and anything else we could manipulate into producing fence-like solutions.  Also included with this kit: numerous parts to create your own fence styles, lots of gates (based on Door Styles) and guardrails.

New for Fences 19 eKit:  fixed two broken gate styles, added one new brick column, added one new fence style with brick base and metal railing and added two new louvered equipment screen styles.

The Content Layout

This product has been designed to work entirely within AutoCAD Architecture's Content Browser.  Each product comes as a Catalog within which you will find Tool Palettes and Tool Catalogs organizing the various components found within the product.

The list of fence types is broken into three primary categories: Metal, Wood and Masonry.  Within each of these categories are standard configurations that you can use directly or as templates for your own variations.  For Post and Rail fences, for example, there are five variations but you can easily copy and alter any of these to change dimensions, number of rails or post profiles.  For Masonry Column fences, for example, there are two variations on large estate-like configurations but you can easily create your own column designs and replace the ones we included.  Information on how to achieve such changes is included in the Fences 19 User Guide.

The Levels of Detail

Illustrated to the right are some composite images of how we used ACA's default High, Medium and Low Detail Display Representations to not only allow for a range of presentation but a range of performance on your equipment.

Low Detail
The Low Detail Display Representation will affect the Plan and Model Display Representations.  Railing Styles, by default, display a single line in Plan View under the Low Display Representation ( though you can add more detail ) and we stuck with this approach but changed the linetype to the "DashDot" or DashDotX2" types.  In Model (3D) View you will find that all Linework is simple and clean with all Properties managed "ByBlock" which means you can set Color, for example, by the Layer or other means.  The Hidden and Shaded modes of the Model View are illustrated to the right.

Medium Detail
The Medium Detail Display Representation will affect the Plan and Model Display Representations.  For this Display Representation, we continue to use the same Linetype as for the Low Detail Display Representation but added the display of Columns.  In Model View you will find Material Linework such as Brick and Concrete Hatch Patterns set to Colors that match the default Materials we assigned to the various Styles ( you can, of course,  change these settings).  For the Shaded mode, you will find Colors but no Materials ( which have been set for High Detail ).

High Detail
The High Detail Display Representation will also affect the Plan and Model Display Representations.  In Plan View you will find that we show a bit more detail than in the Medium Detail Display Representation and no Linetypes.  For Model View you will find the same Linework as under the Medium Detail Display Representation but under the Shaded mode of this View, you will find Materials display ( if set to display on the Options dialog ).  We designed this Display Representation for Rendering purposes. Chain link fencing, for example, changes from lines to a chain link material.

CAD and IT Managers:
Some offices have highly customized template files with unique Display Representations, Sets and Configurations that may not work automatically with out kit.  We designed this kit for optimum performance using the default template files that come with ACA but all that means is that we utilized the High, Medium and Low Display Configurations.  Because some of these Display Representation are not Standard Display Representations they will be introduced automatically as will all of the Material Definition Style Display Representation Overrides that we had to use in order to produce Fence-like linework.

The Object Style files are devoid of undesirable Layers, Colors and Plot Styles.  With the exception of Material Definition Styles, that control Linetypes and Colors for these Object Styles, all Properties have been set to "By Block".
