Thank you for your interest in the Streets 21 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
This product was designed to provide quick options for in-context elements
(streetscapes) such as streets, curbs, signage, lighting, basic landscaping,
parking, background buildings and more.
all of the streets styles are based on highly customized Wall Styles, they
are limited to flat terrains.
New for Streets 21 eKit: To extend on the
Sports Tools added to the Furniture 21 eKit, we added a Sports Category with
sport fields. Swimming Pools Tool Palette has been added.
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.
Below is a list of Object Styles that come with the Streets 21 eKit. Wall Styles have been designed to create a variety of
street layouts with and without adjacent sidewalks and curbs.
Sidewalks and Curbs have also been created using Wall Styles so you can work
on sidewalk conditions independently of the street; i.e., for driveways and
Intersections have been created
with Slabs. Standard driveways have been created with Door Styles.
Regulatory signs have been created with Mass Elements attached to one common
Structural Member (which can easily be changed) and do not require Image
Maps. Some Objects, like parking meters and street lights have been
created from Curtain Wall Styles to allow for rapid placement of multiples.
The Levels of Detail
Streets 21 eKit comes
directly from the work we do in our office and embodies our approach to
implementing AutoCAD Architecture from concept studies to construction
the right is a street intersection example showing how we used ACA's default
Medium and High Detail Display Representations to create a range of display
The Low Detail Display Representation will affect the Plan and Model
Display Representations. In Plan View linework has been simplified to
as little as possible while conveying the basic information of streets and
intersections. In Model View this Detail Display Representation will
show Objects in Colors you specify by direct assignment or by Layer; i.e.,
the Objects are set to "ByBlock".
The Medium Detail Display Representation will affect the Plan and Model
Display Representations. In Plan View you will see most of the
linework found under High Detail but without surface hatching. In
Model View Colors are determined by the Material assignment and do not use
The High Detail Display Representation will also affect the Plan and
Model Display Representations. In Plan View all linework is displayed
and surface hatching for street paint, such as striping, will display.
In Model View Objects will display Materials by their image map assignment
ready for Rendering.

and IT Managers:
Some offices have highly customized template files with unique Display
Representations, Sets and Configurations that may not work with our 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, Low and Presentation Display Configurations. Since the
Presentation Display Representation is not a Standard Display Representation
it will be introduced automatically as will some of the Material Definition
Style Display Representation Overrides that we had to use in order to
produce Cabinet-like linework.
Object Style files are devoid of undesirable Layers, Colors and Plot Styles.
Due to how the Tool Palette uses hard-coded paths this kit has been
designed for a local installation "C:\Program Files\ARCHIdigm\Streets
2019 Kit". If this location will not work in your environment,
you can use the Content Browser "Move" tool to relocate all content and set
new path statements for Tool icons ( discussed in our User Guide).
