The purpose of this article is to provide you with a clear step-by-step process on how to add a new gondola or obstruction to a floor plan while working in DotActiv software.
Adding A New Gondola
After opening DotActiv, navigate to the ‘Space Planning’ tab and either open a blank floor plan sheet by clicking on ‘New’ in the ‘Floor Planning’ section. You can open an existing floor plan by clicking on ‘Open’.
Next, in the ‘New’ section, click on ‘CAD Object’. From the drop-down menu, select ‘Gondola Block (By NOD)’.
Click on the area where you would like to draw the block and pull it to its desired length. Left-click to stop drawing the gondola and right-click to release.
Then, right-click on the gondola. From the context menu, click on ‘Create Mirror Copy’ to replicate the gondola that you created.
Adding An Obstruction
With a DotActiv floor plan open, ensure you are in the ‘Tools’ tab. Click on ‘Obstruction’ in the ‘New’ section.
Click on your floor plan and pull the obstruction to the size you require. If you want to adjust the size, double-click on the obstruction and change the dimensions in the ‘Obstruction Properties’ window that pops up.
Adding An Island Fridge
With a DotActiv floor plan open, ensure you are in the ‘Tools’ tab. Click on ‘Island Fridge’ in the ‘New’ section.
Click on your floor plan and pull it to its desired size. If you want to adjust the size, double-click on it to bring up the ‘Island Fridge Properties’ window. Once there, navigate to the ‘Gondola Attributes’ section to make any necessary changes.
Adding a new gondola, obstruction or island fridge in DotActiv is simple and easy.
