    Ray tracing error

    Hi Darren, Try turning off photon mapping, it only works on objects in the room you are raytracing. Well at least it used to do that.

    SpaceMouse Pro

    Thank you for your reply Ryan I am now considering going for the Enterprize edition. Looks like it could have a lot of preset shortcuts and views in multiple programs

    Q about Terrain Mod. "Flat Reg. (cut/fill)"

    Less is more when dealing with terrain elevation data. Also if you place 2 elevation lines 12" apart this will stop the terrain at that elevation. So if you place a pair in front of your building pad area and 2 at the rear.

    General Notes, text, columns and Numbered Bullets

    Hi Pat, Try using the regular text tool. Use the tab key to create the columns, then make sure to turn on "show grid"

    Asia style roof - rising ridge

    Hi Rob, This peaked my curiosity, I appreciate eastern timber architecture and joinery! I looked online to find more examples and it looked like the ridge beam was the sloping piece. I made a mock up of it.
  12. If you uncheck ( recessed to sheathing) in the window dialog options.

    X12 ray tracing change?

    As far as the lighting above the cabinets and ceilings, is there a roof over the model? foundation made? You may need to bump up the lumens on some lights, I thought I read that the lights are more accurate in x12 Probably others have more suggestions.

    Maximum Number Of Wall Definition Layers?

    I would propose that you should have 2 walls in that assembly. Interior energy wall and your foundation wall. Model it like you build it!

    Page Numbering w/ Leading Zeros

    Hi Kevin, You must have your label macro on your page template. If you use the edit page information (I right click in the project browser) instead you can select a new range for the # wild card to be used. So page 10 will be entered as 10 and then 11 is 1# Then you can change it again if you get to a new range. The only drawback is this is done manually on each page, but if you do it once it's good for the future! Also you could make a different page template to get it done.
