  1. Thank you all very much!! You people are amazing with your knowledge and willingness to share! Learned something new again as I had never used the clipped option before and thanks for the plan/cabinets Mark!
  2. Thanks for that! I had hoped it could be done with the cabinet so that the base would line up but I guess there would be work arounds for that. However, with my question I had hoped to kill two birds with one stone because of similar situations that I ran into before. Any suggestions?
  3. I would like to make the cabinets according the red outline. With this plan I am trying to match an existing kitchen that was built.
  4. Hello, Hopefully I am not asking a very obvious question but several times now, I needed to have the back of a cabinet angled but was not able to shape the cabinet according to the wall it is installed against. I have attached a picture of what I am trying to do in this project. I searched "custom cabinets" on the forum and in the videos but that seems to provide information on how to customize a cabinet in regards to the doors. Does anyone have some advice or can point me in the direction where I can find info on this? Thanks in advance!
  5. I was afraid to hear that Thanks for the responses though!!
  6. Hello everyone, My Polyline Solid is by default set to a 1" thickness. Is it possible to changes this setting to a different thickness so that I don't have to change them every time?
  7. In real life the precast panels have a chamfered edge and I'm not sure how to get that accomplished.
  8. Can you please explain this or send me in a direction where I could find more info on this? I have to model a precast shop and would like to have the joints from the panels show and possibly even have different color panels. Not sure what would be the easiest way to get this done.
  9. Yes it is an addition but part of the overhang has to remain so I was looking for a way to illustrate that in the demolition plan. Thanks for the replies Mark and Joe!
  10. I searched "Glass Vector View" but have to admit didn't look close enough . When I searched vector clear I came across the tread "Can a Material Be Nothing?" where you wrote about making a new symbol without a panel which sent me in the right direction. I ended up making a symbol so it looks like it is glass. Thanks for the help!!
  11. Hello, Not sure if this possible but I am trying to show how far a roof has to be removed for a renovation job. I thought to use a vector camera view and add some notes overtop in the layout. I am trying to place a piece of glass at the point where they have to stop removing the existing roof. I have the same material as the windows of the house which are see through but the separate piece of glass remains color filled. Is it possible to make it see through? I just want to have the outside lines showing. Thanks for any help!
  12. Thanks for that! I was doing something similar to that but whenever I moved the camera, the lines have to be manually moved also which is why I started to look into this to save some time. Personally I would like the program to improve on items like that, which can make it easier and faster to produce construction drawings rather then all the 3D Photo stuff which I find is plenty good the way it is for showing the customer what the project will look like.
  13. Thank you very much!! I should have been more patient and checked out the layout page also (or just close a cross section view camera) but when I was trying it, I changed the layer to a red color to check it and only the color of the 3D overview cameras changed on my working plan but not the cross section lines so I assumed it wasn't working. However when I send it to the layout, as Michael suggested, the cross section lines also had a different color. I assume it is not possible to have the callout on a separate layer as the cross section line? If that was the case it would really suit the situation because I want the cross section lines less visible on the floorplan layout to make it cleaner looking but the callouts on the side can stay black and very visible.
  14. Hello Chiefers, Is it possible to change the line color for a Backclipped Cross Section view? I have a callout on both sides of the plan with a short/long dashed line connecting them which is black but I would like it to be more of a lighter grey so that it is lighter on the prints. Can't seem to find anything in the settings and changing the layer color doesn't do it. Thanks for any help!
  15. Double click on the room so it opens the "Room Specifications" window and at the bottom in this window there is "Floor Structure", click on the edit button of the Floor Structures and change the material there. That seemed to work for me although I did have to pull up your walls a bit to hide the gap in between because it was still showing the regular concrete from the walls.
  16. It worked, until I changed the railing to invisible then it went back to the regular concrete. However, I went in the actual floor structure settings in the Room Specifications and changed the Floor Structure material and then it worked. Thanks for your help!!
  17. I have them invisible on my plan. Its not a big deal as I usually don't change the concrete anyways but when it came up I thought it be nice to know. I tried some different settings in the wall definition and wall structure but it won't change it for me.
  18. I didn't ask but would still be interesting to know what the answer would be to also change the side of the slab?
  19. Sorry, not 100% sure what happened but it looks like I re-posted something that Solver and David helped me solve the other day. Thanks for your replies and renewed help anyways!

    The framers like to have the size of a door or window shown on the floor plan and the supplier likes a door or window schedule. I thought I could please both and make a label that shows schedule number and door size however when I make the schedule, the schedule number displays on the plan and I can't get the label settings to show up. Picture 12 is what I want (with the schedule number), Picture 11 is what shows up when I make a schedule and Picture 13 is the label setting of the item. What I am doing wrong?
  21. But I can't There must be a setting I'm missing or something simple like that. I have attached a plan, if someone wants to open the door to the solution. Thanks for the replies Eric and David!
  22. Only displays the schedule number, no sizes. Not sure if that makes sense but to me it seems like that as soon as a schedule is made it "overrides" the actual label.
