  1. How do the experts deal with this? Second floor exterior wall with a sloped roof plane against the wall. Wall passes by the roof plane and becomes an interior wall. How do you change from an exterior wall with siding to an interior with drywall, following the slope of the roof?

    Monolithic Foundation Wall at Porch

    Steve, Thank you for the information. It worked fine. Thought I had tried that setting before but must have not. I am still debating whether I will do a foundation wall or point footers under the columns. So, currently I have both the porch room and the extended slab in place. I will eventually eliminate one of them. Thanks again and have a super weekend!
  3. I have a plan with a monolithic slab foundation. It has a large porch with the floor dropped 4" from the main floor. The porch uses a monolithic footer, supposedly stepped down (4") from the main foundation. How do I get the step-down to model properly. Currently the porch foundation maintains the main floor elevation as seen in the attached picture. Also, in plan view the porch foundation wall does not have the same visual characteristics as the house foundation wall, as can be seen in the attached picture. I also attached the plan (X11). Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated. This is a preexisting A-frame with the two wings to be added.

    Switched Outlet Symbol

    I need to specify a duplex outlet with the bottom receptacle hot and the top receptacle switched. What is the proper 2d symbol to designate this on a plan? Thanks!

    I need a door symbol - see picture

    This is the door. Note that it has a transom with an arched top as well as an arched bottom to match the door arch. If you have a reasonably matching symbol are you willing to share or sell? Thanks! LaVor

    Survey Legal Description

    Thank you ChopSaw. I had not found that plat map. I did find others at the assessor web site. I too would like to know the nomenclature of the legal description. I've never seen it before. I sent it to a surveyor I work with on occasion. If he can decipher it I will let you know.

    Survey Legal Description

    Time and money. The client needs just a simple and not accurate property drawing, showing existing buildings for a meeting with the zoning board. If the zoning board will change the zoning from commercial to agriculture then the client will proceed to the next step which would include a survey. A survey would also take several weeks to complete and the meeting is next week.

    Survey Legal Description

    Is there someone available that help me interpret a legal description of a property. I need to draw the property and have a legal description that I do not understand. The description comes from the tax assessor's office. Legal Description: W348.56 SW SW LESS N601.53 THEREOF & LESS W50 N272.12 S APR 718.47 W348.56 SW SW & LESS BEG SWC SW TH N APR 446.35 E30 S APR 195.63 CRV RT APR 247.83 SE APR 95.43 S APR 148.50 W348.56 POB SEC 1 19 10 3.524ACS Below is the picture provided by the assessor web site:

    Ruby Macros

    Is there a way to use it as a, and I am not sure of the terms to use, reference label? Such that it is in a text box with an arrow pointing to the layout box. This so I do not have to turn on the Layout Box Labels layer.

    Ruby Macros

    I am not very familiar with Ruby... trying to learn as I have time. What precedes "result = referenced_full_filename.rpartition("_Builders/")[2].rpartition("/")[0] " and what follows it to get it to work in CA? Thanks!

    Ruby Macros

    @Alaskan_Son contacted me and wrote a macro that pulls the path string I need. Did a great job at a very reasonable price. Thank you @Alaskan_Son! Joe, I set up your suggestion and found that it works well too. I do have a question for you, or anyone that might know the answer... how do you get the Ruby Attributes of a Layout Box that can be used? Actual path (filename not included): C:\Users\zbook17g3\OneDrive\_Business\DesignsByLaVor\_WorkX11\_Builders\CH - Compass\Clients\Working\Hancock - Hardin Your suggestion from above: CH - Compass/Clients/Working/Hancock - Hardin/Hardin I would like to have: CH - Compass/Clients/Working/Hancock - Hardin Thanks!

    Ruby Macros

    Anyone out there offer Ruby services for $? I need a fairly simple macro created. I need a label for my layout files that will display the path of the layout file (%file%), truncating the first nn characters. i.e. d:\Users\username\DesignWork\CAX11\Builders\Builder_1\Standard_Plans\Plan_1 with nn=43 would display as: Builder_1\Standard_Plans\Plan_1 -or- Can this be done in X11 without writing a macro? Thanks much!

    Export Layout to DWG

    Is there a way to, in a single command, export each layout sheet to individual dwg files. I have 29 sheets in my layout to export and would like to do so with a single execution rather than 29 executions? Thank you!
