    Door with 2 shutter

    Salahuddin, Use two 6" thick walls with a room divider between. Then place a door in each wall, opening the way you want. Might be easiest to make one wall; add a room divider about two inches away; then add the second wall an inch away and then slide them together. Worked for me

    X11: Light shade default transparency

    Can you change "shade" translucency?

    X11: Light shade default transparency

    Hi CA Try opening the fixture, materials (globe), properties and adjust "translucency" setting. Can not find the "Ulna" fixture however, so didn't try that particular one. If that doesn't work, try changing material of globe to "glass white" which can be adjusted.

    Stip of light at ceiling !!

    I suspect you do NOT have a roof on the building. That is usually the cause of what you are seeing. Add a roof and it should go away.

    Accessible Home

    Hi Bob, Not sure if I can be of any help but have done a number of home mods to aid accessibility. My wife is a paraplegic (has been for 42 years - darn horses) and we have adapted three personal residences. We (my wife and I) both understand what the problems are for a para but not sure the extent of your disability. Currently designing a new retirement home for us. In addition, I have done several commercial buildings which met ADA standards. My knowledge of SIPs is limited having done only two churches that used them on the roof and that was under the direction of a very knowledgeable Amish craftsman. But, as Eric said, SIPs are merely a type of wall. Unfortunately, my software is Chief Architect X11 and I see you are using HomeDesigner Pro 2020 which is not totally compatible with Chief Architect X11. I can read your plans and can send back a revision in Chief but you will not have all tools needed to modify it fully. You CAN DO some editing but not all. I can look over what you have done so far which will perhaps point us in the right direction for continuing. At the moment, I am not clear what you need. Let me know if I can help. Doug

    Cheif compatible 3D software

    RE: Twinmotion. Be aware that the file is 8.8 gb BIG. Using rural internet (10mbs) took 3.5 hours to download. And half way through, I lost internet and had to start over!

    Chairs under Table

    Welcome to the forum. Select the chair or chairs you want to see, go to edit bar and "view draw order tool" and move them up in order. See help for more info. By the way, helpful if you add your signature to postings. See mine below. Go to your name in upper right corner of this page, select "account settings" then "signature" to add info. Good luck. Doug

    How to simply make a textured hedge?

    Make a spline in the plan view representing approximately the coverage of your hedge. Then convert it to a "polyline distribution path" (look in help) then add whatever foliage you want.using the dialogs under that command. Doug
