  1. Attached is a simplified “materials & objects” plan (X15) I use for each of my projects. I bring this forward into each new project and then update it to reflect the materials or other items (like cabinets, islands or vanities) I want to render out for layouts or just to render the individual object. The cameras are saved to make it relatively easy to update and obtain the view I’m after. Hope this helps.
  2. Have you downloaded the “Vehicles No.1 Recreation” catalog?
  3. Does this get close? It's a CAD Detail in the our sample plan (Silverton)
  4. If you are after a ledger where the wall rests on the concrete stem wall, you can do that with a Pony Wall. were the upper wall is 6" wide (12" high) and the lower wall is 8" wide and the remainder of the height. This way your floor truss can rest on the concrete. You will likely need to manually place the plate or a CAD box for the plate. This example below is using a stick frame wall.
  5. You can take a wall elevation, and then remove the option "clip to room"; then drag the clip lines to encompass all the rooms. See attached example of two rooms
  6. For exterior renderings, I have found better results using the CPU raytrace v. PBR.
  7. You could use the "edit CAD block" tool and resize it.
  8. Annaleisa, does this setting work?
  9. Costco often has good buys on Lenovo laptops. We often buy from there. I noticed there’s a 4060 version for $1,699
  10. Drawing exterior walls clockwise can keep the outside layer on the outside. If you draw them counterclockwise, once a room is formed, the walls will auto adjust to the outside. So, it may not really matter which way you draw them.
  11. What if you set your schedule’s minimum number of rows to One, does that solve it ?
  12. Here's a better view with a shapped top on the divider. The divider was created using the solid tools.
  13. To create the divider drawer box, create it using solids; or, place a drawer box from the Library ("cabinet specialty storage" / Rev-A-Shelf library), use the solid tool / partition tool, convert that grouping to a millwork symbol – and you should have what you need.
  14. There is no advantage to the method I used above IF you are using an existing Library item. If you are creating your own, say with solids, then you would want to use that approach as I did below on the drawer divider box.
  15. You can replace the drawer with a drawer symbol as @DBCooper suggests. You can find some in the Rev-A-Shelf library, resize it; export it as a symbol – choose the category ‘millwork’. This will add the item back into your catalog. From there you can swap it out as the drawer box. Here’s a closet video on that process
