  1. Thanks for all your help - I had it set up right, but the staircase wasn't touching the wall. It's Monday!!
  2. I had a client request a change to railings and newels on a plan last Friday and opened up the plan this morning to make the changes. It is a flight of stairs from the lower level to a landing and then up to the main floor. 1st section is open on both sides, second section is against the wall and they want railings only on the open side, which I had done - see first pdf below. When I opened the plan today, I made the changes and a railing showed up on the second section and I cannot eliminate it - see second pdf below. I did download the X13 over the weekend. Are there settings somewhere that I am missing? I looked through the online help and several videos and cannot figure out how to fix this. Help!
  3. Ok, might be a stupid questions but what is ALDO????
  4. Justin - check these out - the best I have found so far!
  5. Is there a way to partially frost a shower door in CA? I am trying to recreate the attached shower door/glass and tried to look this up using every keyword I could think of. Appreciate any ideas/suggestions!
  6. I'll check video driver and yes I've rebooted several times - but thanks for the reminder!
  7. 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?
  8. 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?

  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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?
