  1. Hey All, When auto building deck framing, Does anyone know a way to build the deck beam "flush" and if using the drop beam method to adjust the drop beam location (this would be the cantilever distance on the joist) It seems that chief defaults to 16" ... Mr Solver,
  2. OK, the live view was clunky before so I skipped the many generations of this tool and just started using it with x12. The rotate/resize about current point did not work for me yet. I play around and figure it out. thanks
  3. The marquee select works great. This is probly not exact as it should be. where is the default setting for size of image at layout? is this in the plan side or layout side?
  4. This changes the size of the the layout box. But the image size stays the same. So this is almost the same as cropping the photo or rendering.
  5. using live camera views in layout, how do I change the size of these in the layout sheet. I would like my renderings to measure 12" wide but I cannot change the size. Probly just an oversight on my part.
  6. We use the subdivision method for our plot plans. I draw the lot and the topography as it is before grading. Set the house as symbol from the other plan file. I also use generic symbols from my library to set the "neighbors" houses. This is a good way to communicate sidelines.
  7. This would seem to be a fairly logical adjustment to the window sill panel. Elevation of sill.... .75" above bottom of window. Maybe it is more complicated because the window frame or no frame is in this location. I did read through the questions and responses from the drywall return window thread that solver suggested. I didn't have any luck with the exterior attachments. I couldnt adjust the location of the exterior attachment. Location was set by exterior casing.
  8. wow, looks like you guys rode that issue quite a ways. Not a within the window defaults fix. Thanks for the quick response.
  9. is it possible to create windows with drywall returns and a wood sill. When I create a window I choose these options. 1. no interior casing 2. use interior sill , cap #1, inset 3" extend 0, no apron, no wrap 3. uncheck, "has frame" the sill disappears into the drywall return at the base of the window. pictures below, untitled 1 is an image from my chief of a window I was working on, picture of window with sill is a quick google images search of drywall return with wood sill. My customer wants something like that without the dog-ears and the extension.
  10. Would the fix be to download an updated build version? Missed the x12 note. Thanks
  11. Woodcraft is running the X11 Build 21.3.1 1x64 aug 14 2019
  12. I am using the Oculus Rift S with X11 When I run a rendering in the VR mode, I have teleport lines sometimes. Sometimes they disappear. The hand controls or wands work whether the teleport lines are visible or not. Has anyone had experience with this issue? The wands and VR setup works in other programs no problem. Also I have no complaints with the VR experience within Chief except for this small issue. I expect the customers or first time users) will be confused.
  13. any one have a big green egg for download?
  14. The top cord bearing floor truss can be a good tool for lowering the level of access to the home. You can bring grade up to 11.25 inches Below Floor Rough. with a step out of the door of 6" a step off the deck or porch of six inches, you are at grade. But you still have the benefit of trusses for your spans and mechanical.
