    Bulkhead Cover 1

    Thanks solver. I got that to work using your tip, not on the symbol I was trying to use "Bulkhead Cover 1", but on the other bulkhead symbol in the exterior attachments library. I was unaware of that tool and how it worked. Great lesson. Thanks again. Lou F.

    Bulkhead Cover 1

    Greetings, The symbol in the library "Bulkhead Cover 1 " is a hollow symbol which works great for 3D viewing but it has a solid back wall which blocks the opening of the basement door. Does anyone know of a way to make the back wall transparent? I have tried many ways using different symbols but come up empty each time. The transparent wall would make my walk through complete. Thanks in advance, any suggestions would be appreciated. Lou F.

    Hidden wall?

    The wall is built on the original roof (layover) not on the second floor.

    Hidden wall?

    Thanks rlackore. If there are more than one solution then I need another solution because I can't get that one to work correctly. 1. Delete that wall - done. 2. Shoot an Orthographic Full Overview. You'll see the Interior-4 wall; select it and Open Object. What I see is a Siding -6 wall to select. When I select and extend that wall to fill in the sidewall hole and then change to Roof Cuts Wall at Bottom, the wall then is visible in plan view. Shows up in plan view. So I'm doing something wrong but have tried numerous times with no success. Attached views.

    Hidden wall?

    Greetings, This wall will be built on the original roof and should stop at the new addition's roof above. The wall should not show on the second floor (as shown). Without this wall in place there is a hole in the sidewall, with this wall in place there is a wall in the middle of the room where there should be no wall. I have tried moving the wall up to attic and making the wall hidden without success. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Lou F. horton_remodel2.zip

    Bay Window Advice

    Thanks SNestor and solver, using your advice I was able to complete the task. I found the awning and redrew the windows using the bay window tool, it took a while to figure out but I got it. Adjusting the ceiling height was the solution for the weird interior look. I now know to send the plan file instead of the backup file. Thanks again, Lou F.

    Bay Window Advice

    Greetings, The bay window in my plan has problems that I cannot solve: I've been searching through the catalogs for a copper roof for a bay window, I could not find one so I used a conventional asphalt roof which is an not ideal look. Does anyone know of a copper roof anywhere in the catalogs for this purpose? If not how do I fix this roof so it looks correct? The interior ceiling also looks weird, I've tried many times to make it look seamless but am unsuccessful. I have check my structure numbers and they seem right? The exterior view shows framing that appears through the wall, cannot fix this. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks, Lou F. bay_window.zip

    dormer walls missing shingles

    Thanks Kbird1. I'll work on it and get back to you.
  14. Greetings, The rear dormer in my 1 1/2 story as built design has both interior side walls that are missing their exterior shingles. I've tried everything I can think of to fix the problem but come up empty for a solution. Any help would be appreciated, thanks. Lou horton_asbuilt.plan

    Solver, I attached the plan file but unsure if it was included in my last reply.
