  1. I've been going back and forth with a client I sent a link to my 3D model so he could view it w/ VIEWER. Is there a way to make this link live so I don't have to keep exporting?
  2. Thanks for all the awesome post & videos. Lots of great lessons here I hope help others and should be easier to search. Several ways in CA. Thanks for the heads up on walls Dave. I slapped it together fast for bidding. It appears X9 Gable/Roof Line is the simplest answer thanks Michael you are the man! That last pic Solver is what I want. I think it looks good as is. Client is wanting to move front door under gable now, I don't see anywhere to move the dinning table. Any suggestions? This is not my design it's clients, I just have to solve all his issues Pe
  3. My client wants a gable end on this porch roof & I can't find a tutorial or know what to search? I tried roof planes not cooperating at base, &, dormer tools not working. I want the ridges to intersect and extend out to the post w/valleys. How do I do this? Attached in X8...I'm too scared to go X9 can't afford a hiccup right now. Client (Final) Truss 3 (no furn).plan
  4. Don't know about others but often I use CA and goggle search before creating a thread. Goggle usually works better and faster for me. I'm seeing alot that when searched don't come up as intended & the title is the easiest way to find stuff. Perhaps a good idea to do a test on your thread title before posting so people can easily find your intent & content in a search. Speaking of intent: Disclaimers at the top help stop threads from getting way off topic....Clearly state what the intent is since some topics can have many sub-topics and the thread can easily get way off wha
  5. I think I just figured a work around so W10 can't mess with me anymore....Move them to Dropbox W10 just got an arse whoopin by DB
  6. Anyone else auto arrange with dual monitors hooked up? I've tried everything such as shutting off view auto arrange, align to grid, making sure video card is up to date so it does not refresh. Prior to the last update and/or CA not sure my monitors would not wake up, now this. So I get one thing resolved in time just to have another. I don't like W10 unstable since W7 IMO, but it has some advantages I guess like free security, syncs, etc... Irritating since I like all my CA, etc, arranged the way I want it.
  7. I could be wrong, but the way I interpret it is the opposite you are. For most single story homes with no living space above the ceiling "Ceiling for FL1" is used and sub-floor has no affect. In two or more stories, the sub floor elevations can be changed with respect to one another using the "sub-floor for floor 2" build tool. In this case ceiling build is inoperative. That would make sense to me anyway based on titles of sections too since there is no "sub-ceiling for floor 2" but I'm not sure.
  8. Glad you're back. I remember you from when I first started X7 as being VERY helpful and knowledgeable. I actually thought you had to be part of staff. Sorry they treat you this way nor understand how much value you have brought to new sales. You and a select few others out here s/b free SSA. If they put correct value to the best contributors out here they see this $500 is nothing compared. It reminds me of lower utility bill home designs and appraisers/banks struggling to find comps and realize value all around the nation. That is the biggest reason why solar and these homes are not mass produ
  9. You've been on a legal advice rampage correcting and advising what should be on plans for court purposes since post # 97, along with unrelated topics I never asked for in my OP. Most smart people know that's why we have attorney's in this world you are not one. You went on to attack my and all entities quoting "Sorry, but for claims involving design negligence, corporate entities offer no liability protection." in response to my attorney setting up an insured entity, basically it appears you are advising is wrong offering, " entities have no liability protection"..... How ridiculous!
  10. Please refrain from further legal discussions I have asked the mods to look at Richards contributions. I don't think ppl come to CA looking for legal advice. I certainly did not ask for it in my OP. We need to keep this site topics on CA related discussions otherwise ppl can not learn it. Thanks!
  11. I can't imagine why these two can't be combined. All your page index is doing is denoting a page # and title that can all go along w/ "date, revised by, description" in one live table. If you delete a sheet all is gone. The only variables are "revised by, date, description I am assuming you use to give a brief on what changed, along with any rework to existing parts, assemblies...No biggie, just saying. Think I'll try and combine until someone complains I see I can go schedule-to-text to modify how to get it back to live?
  12. Good Point! Why not combine the Layout Page Table & Revision Table?
  13. Typically, I can point to a plat drawing by civil engineers in sub-divisions and do not have define it. This ones in rural most of the time they just wing a pad. I guess I better call the city. They don't return calls or support residential design around here, so frustrating!
  14. Excellent - Thanks Joey didn't even see that through all the chaos. Looks awesome!! What I had in mind you already sculpture very well thanks again. Agree both locals probably best. Why not put more 3D ref views on each sheet just to help put things into perspective? IE: Framing, MEP if we had it, etc...Just curious we do that on manufacturing(mfg) drawings. Another: Why not combine the Layout Page Table & Revision Table? Reduce clutter all info in one table? In mfg we do that in a "title block". Going to be more than a week for this noob I can see
