I am trying to design a home theater using AutoCad. Does anyone have a drawing of a side view of a person sitting in a chair that I could scale and drop into an AutoCad drawing?


I am trying to make sure that the back row of seats are the proper height for the screen size.

Instead of using AutoCAD for the riser height, use the sticky on the top of the forum. I also have a link to it and a go-bye in my build thread (see my signature for a link). I used AutoCAD to design my theater, but the riser height software is easier for this.

Thanks for the reply. I looked at the program and it looks really nice. I already have the side view partially done in AutoCad. Just thought it would make my view clearer to have a nice side view of a person sitting in a chair.


If anyone knows of a sight that has a view like this, please let me know.

Hey Dan. I can't guarantee the accuracy of this elevation shot. I made the attached file years ago for a small project I was looking into doing at one time. Give it a try and it should give you an approximate range anyway.

I used AutoCad as well, but I just drew a stick figure. I was able to use use a shorter riser than the calculator suggested. I have no sightline problems.

Autocad has a free format conversion tool somewhere on their website ( www.autodesk.com ) that will convert back to 2000.

Sorry, I didn't even think about the version.
I think i made that file back off the 2005 edition. I'm on release 2010 now. The new attachment below is saved on the 2000 platform. Give that a try...
