    Cad detail from view

    You can also make a filled box with a hole and use it as a mask. I left the fill color black, but it should be white and no borders.

    Cad detail from view

    That's what the mask is for -- closed polyline with fill.

    Cad detail from view

    Probably a really simple way to do this ... X10 may not have the Clip to Sides camera option, but you can just mask what you don't want before creating the CAD Detail From View.
  4. I changed my interior wall defaults to new layer -- Walls, Interior. This changes a few things about how the program works. Mostly done so I could easily select only interior walls, or only exterior walls.

    Once the roof is correct, turn off Auto Rebuild Roofs and make your changes.

    Modifying Automatic Roof to Gable

    So the roof will build over it.

    Modifying Automatic Roof to Gable

    That roof should easily auto build. Set your roof defaults, change walls to gable etc. If you used the Bay Window tool, you will need to delete it and draw in your own bay. Make your deck small like the one shown and set it to have a roof and ceiling.

    Voids in Exterior Wall Surfaces

    Happens all the time. Sometimes an easy fix, sometimes not. It helps to have your plan file to work with -- saves lots of back and fourth. Close Chief and attach for the best help.

    Modifying Automatic Roof to Gable

    Is Auto Rebuild Roofs on, or have you checked Build Roof Planes in the Build Roof dialog?

    Have you overridden the default pitch in any walls? Do you have a Roof Baseline Polyline?

    Glazing (Glass) area of window

    Then why not use that calculation? This might also work.

    Glazing (Glass) area of window

    Is glazing area the same as glass area? Are your windows defined to make this measurement accurate?

    Soffit Material parrallel to rafters

    I've suggested ceiling planes in the past. They come in at the correct slope and can be joined at a 45 in the corner.

    Will Chief run native on M1 Mac?

    The forum does not index short words like M1, but often searching on the Chief website will find things.

    Will Chief run native on M1 Mac?

    Please check your messages. I imagine a forum search for M1 will find a discussion or two.

    Soffit Material parrallel to rafters

    No, and it would make a good suggestion. The problem with workarounds is the miter when you have a gable roof.
  21. Select the hole and delete it.
