Can someone point me to where I can get a Plan Set of typical pages that I can use to create a plan set?

I have 2016 and there's nothing in the template folder. Looking for a short cut before I create a set.

 

Thanks.

Plan sets are super easy to create following the same page order that you would use for any Construction Drawing set.

You have a number of resources for this though...You can look it up in the Help menu and find extensive help clearly documented...or you can open any of Sample Drawings that came included with your software and see how those plan sets are created...and if you right click on the listed plan set name you can even save it as a Template to a location of your own choosing - just to list a few options for you...

It is pretty easy; you really just set up your first plan set based on how you like it.  As everyone puts their sets together differently it is tough to have a sample to send as it may not be best for you.  Create a set of drawings in Pan set and when you are done you can save it as a template.  Then when you create a new one you can use that or any other template you created and then it automatically will fill in all/most of the sheets for you.  I have templates set up for prelim drawings, construction drawings, custom and builder spec.  I also create them for different builders based on how they like it and their title blocks.

I might not get your question, but maybe.      To setup a title block options go up two layer above the project your in and find "Title Blocks". There are premade title blocks and you can have them say what you want.  You can use  MODEL  Project option to put information for the Plan.   (If you don't see any title block pages here be sure to at bottom select "Files Of Type" " All Files"     you can modify the pages by using the @plan_set_page_number and other choices to have it pull info from other areas, like "@project name"

I believe you can get all these  @ choices by adding notes and selecting the "Stamps" at bottom right

 

Then of course when you set up a planset you select a boarder and it takes you to this "title block file and you can select which boarder you would like.

Is nice
