  1. Thank you one and all. Cambria® must have my office bugged ;-)
  2. Who's responsible for trying to keep the Manufacturer Catalogs up to date? Does CA periodically prompt the manufacture for updates, or is on the manufacturer to supply updates as they see fit? Beyond the initial cost to manufactures to be included in CA, is there a cost for updates that might dissuade them from doing so? The classic example for us is Cambria®... they have added and changed their offerings over the years (as I'm sure most manufacturers do) and there hasn't been a catalog update to reflect this. I'm not expecting a live update, but something on an annual basis to keep the catalog useful would be nice. We spend a lot of time browsing catalogs trying to find something close to represent a specific material... life would be so much easier if the manufacturer catalog was up to date. Is there anything we (as users) can do to help drive this?
  3. I did copy in place/convert to molding, but I do like the countertop idea. Thank you again, one and all.
  4. Excellent... thank you gents. Next is to apply a molding to the perimeter (for header bricks)... can this be done to the polysolid, or do I have to duplicate the original polyline and convert it to a molding line?
  5. I can draw the outline of the shape I want (half pear for want of a better description) with Draw Arc and Lines, but I can't get the shape with a polysolid. How can I convert these lines to a polysolid, or how do I alternatively achieve an irregular shaped patio that I can apply pavers to?
  6. I used to do a library search for "undermount" to find sinks, but recently the penny dropped... if I search "under-mount" there's a whole lot more to choose from.
  7. Thank you for the guidance. As a note for others that may follow; when editing the block, be sure to change the layer and group properties as needed. Even though the initial block was electrical, the new block becomes default (which is not electrical), so the layer and symbol color is not correct.
  8. How do I edit or update the CAT5/TV wiring symbol to CAT6/TV as the standards change?
  9. Dermot, thanks for the swift reply. Both "Show line weights" and "print preview" did the trick (showing how it actually prints). I then edited the Line Style to get something acceptable to print. It seems a little clumsy (archaic even) not having it print as it displays. If you print to 1/4 scale, why would the Line Style not be 1/4 of its designed size. My Line Style has a repeat length of 3/8", and is 1/8" at its highest... one would expect 176 repeats on a 66" line, but I get ~3½ repeats.
  10. When I print or PDF a layout page, the Line Style is not scaled has it shows on the Plan or Layout (see attached). How do I rectify this? TiA,
  11. That was it... I set all the printer margins to "0" and it prints fine... what was there came from Populate from Printer. I still have to have it as Fit to Page 90% to get all the title block to print. Thanks for the input. Your time is appreciated.
  12. Files attached... these are my first dabblings with CA. P1707003.Jerry_Whitlock.plan 2150 N Ocean.layout
  13. My layout sheets are set to Arch D... I have all views updated. For a quick review printout I'm sending the layout to a Letter size printer, with scale to fit at 85% (otherwise the title block is cut off). The problem I'm having is, there are voids (blank sections) within some of the layout boxes, and some of the cropped areas show through. Attached you will see a screenshot of the CA layout, and a picture of the printout. Note the print errors; Plan view - void in middle, bottom crop walls show through, RH crop dimension show through. Cabinet Schedule - RH crop text show through. Title Block - Logo not showing. Any guidance would be appreciated. TiA,
  14. Mark, If I had the door opening just short of the wall step, the rendering is correct, but part of the 4½" wall shows at the opening (a jog in the base). If the door is tight to the wall step, there is no 4½" wall showing (base is straight), but the drywall is missing on the end of the 9" wall beyond the 4½" wall. It looks like your mock up is two 4½" walls together, whereas mine is a single thick wall. This is likely where my error is, as the is wall will be 2x4½" or block. I try reworking it and see later (no time now), then report back. Thanks again for the input.
  15. See [Edit] above (you posted as I edited).
  16. That didn't help :-( [Edit] I fixed it by drawing a 4½" wall across the end of the 9" wall.
  17. I have a wall that steps in thickness from 9" to 4½", with a door opening at the step. How do I clad the end of the step in the wall? (see attached) TiA,
  18. I did have the kneewall set to 34½". Should I have tried 34¼"? The job is done with Custom Countertops now... took a bit to workout to add breaks so the shapes could be manipulated properly.
  19. How do you get the countertop to extend beyond the back of the cabinet to cover the kneewall and overhang at the seating area? I have the backsplash at 0, I unchecked "Uniform" for overhang, and set the back overhang to 16"... yet the back overhang does not show. How do I achieve countertop overhang? TiA,
