  1. I'll check video driver and yes I've rebooted several times - but thanks for the reminder!
  2. My computer installed a windows update last night and now I cannot open any objects or specifications for any items without the software freezing. Any suggestions? Has anyone else experienced this?
  3. Thanks for the help!!! I've got the dormers now! So halfway there - but how do I make the ceiling flat, rather than sloping, to the back wall and have the wall opposite the dormers vertical with windows in it like the attached picture of the existing back wall?

  4. Here are some images and the plan. I feel like I'm missing something really simple. I can get the dormers in, correct size and placement, with the opening in the walls next to them. However, I have walls that are uncovered, and the back wall is angled and should be flat to the exterior wall as in the pictures in my first post. Thanks! Both Walls.pdf Dormers.pdf Tridente.plan
  5. I am attempting to recreate the attached room for a client so that we can do some interior work. The room is over a garage and has two dormers in the front, which have the same ceiling height as the rest of the room. The back wall is a shed roof. I can follow the directions and get the dormers in this room, but the ceiling slopes and in the spaces to the far sides of the dormers are not open as in the picture. I can get a shed dormer on this room but then I can't figure out how to get the dormers in place. I have tried doing the dormers first and then doing the shed roof, and vice versa and cannot figure this out. Seems as though the roofs are kicking my butt on my last two projects, but I know that's how you learn. Help would really be appreciated.
  6. I am working with a client who would like to see this fireplace modeled as shown in the drawing on the interiors I'm doing and I have not been struggling trying to figure out how to create the angles on a fireplace - I'm using CA X12 Interiors. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
  7. I am working with CA x12 Interiors and do quite a bit of work with furniture that just isn't available in the CA catalog. When I model the furniture in SketchUp and import into CA, the files are often quite large. So my question is, is there a way to convert the sketchup files to a calibz file or is there a way to may the SKP file smaller so that it doesn't bog down my plan so much?
  8. I'll give that a try! Right now when I try to paste the second floor over the first, they overlay each other, so my guess is I should have started out building it by floor instead of separately.
  9. Originally I was hired to do the kitchen and baths on each floor, so to keep file size down, just did them separately. Now the scope has changed and actually this morning did a 3 story so I can do that. I'm just trying to figure out how to add the plans with the kitchen and the baths to each other. I have to be honest, I've never tried to do anything like this before.
  10. I am currently working on the interiors for a 3 story house and have done each floor as a separate plan. The architect has asked whether it would it would be possible to "walk" the client through the entire house starting at ground level since we are now doing this remotely. I need to at least add the third story to the second story in order to do the cathedral ceilings in several of the rooms. Is it possible to take the plan for the 3rd floor and add it to the second floor? And then insert the ground floor under the first floor? And can I do all this just using interiors? I've been working on it for several days off and on and I'm obviously not doing something correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  11. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! This was exactly what I needed - and I really appreciate you taking the time to make the video.
  12. I'm an interior designer, so I'm not building the roof - which is probably some of the problem I'm having. I am renovating a room on the third floor of a condo and am trying to replicate the room in CA so that I design the interior. I've attached pictures of the actual room. All I can get is a vaulted ceiling, and as you can see from the pictures, there is a 40" flat space in the center of the room, and the ceiling slopes down to 26" knee walls on either side. We are gutting the room and starting over, and that's what I need to design. Does this help?
