Elevation is the main part of an Architectural drawing. This ebook will guide you to draw the elevation with AutoCad. An elevation drawing is an orthographic projection (drawing) that shows one side of a building. Details for each elevation (view) are projected down from each floor plan and over from the wall section. The purpose of an elevation drawing is to show the finished appearance of a given side of the building and furnish vertical height dimensions. Procedure: Open and save a new file called Wall_Section.dwg. Use the acad.dwt template. Set the drawing units to Architectural. Create the following layers: First Floor Plan; Second Floor Plan; Wall Section; and F Elevation; B Elevation; L Elevation; R Elevation. Each of the elevation layers will be for the front, back, left, and right elevation drawings. You can use different colors to organize them if you want. Open your first floor plan and copy the floor plan. Paste it into the Wall Section file on the First Floor Plan layer. Make sure that the first floor plan and wall section are visible, and the second floor is hidden by turning off its light bulb in the layer drop down menu. Note: You may activate the 2nd floor layer to transfer any windows or doors that are different than the first floor. Add vertical dimensions aligned on the side of the elevation plan starting from the ground line to the floor lines, eave line, and up to the ridge line. Add separate dimension showing how high the top of the foundation is above the ground line. It should be at least 8” to protect from moisture and insect damage.
