    Winders not working

    On the floor #1 I have a straight stairway with a winder entry and winder exit onto the 2nd floor. I create the stairs the exact same way the tutorial does it, click on winders and it remains rounded corners. What am I doing wrong. Stewart_February_2018_latest_version_3-13-18_auto_save.plan.zip

    ICF wall not showing completely

    I can modify the plan w/CAD. Was just looking for a quick fix. Turn this on or off etc. I'm not a computer guy. Thanks anyway.
  3. Curious as to why the foam insulation of my ICF wall won't show up. I have a 6" & 8" wall that showed up just fine. All walls are foundation walls, the 8" is a retaining wall. All dimensions on wall types are the same as to where they are to measure from. "Wall layers" is checked. See pic. Looking for a super simple solution. I can upload complete file if it's not an easy solution. Thanks.

    I'm at 56.8 mb. I can only upload 25mb. And that's compressed in a zip file.

    Electrical ceiling outlet

    Is there some way to put a standard electrical outlet on a ceiling for a garage door opener?

    Floor sink

    Not seeing a floor sink anywhere in the library unless I'm looking in the wrong spot. Can anyone help with this?

    Floor sink

    How do you get the sink to not show the floor (concrete) in the sink???

    Ya, That will work. Just need to show for an indirect drain for water softener. Thanks.

    Interesting! I will have to look into that. I greatly appreciated your opinion. Thanks!

    If this is such an issue with CA, it may be helpful to others that seem to be having the same frustration.

    Winders not working

    I'm curious as to why winders are not appropriate? Is it just a "carrying furniture up the stairs" thing or some architectural thing I have overlooked? Thanks I would like to see a video of you creating the stairs with the winders just as the pic you posted here.

    HA! I thought it was just me. Guess I'm not the only one.

    Winders not working

    I'm sorry, but this still isn't working. I draw 3 stair risers, a set of stairs, 3 more risers, option/alt and rotate. Stairs become too long, click on "winders" and I get a messed up hand rail, 2 stair risers on top and bottom with some funky stair rail that goes off into space. WTH!!

    what a pain in the butt. CA really needs to make the stair tool work better. Thanks.

    Foundation bearing wall

    I need to have 3- 6' tall x 4' long retaining wall for the soil side of my ICF walls every ~20'. I have tapped into the existing basement wall and when I do an elevation or camera view I get what looks like a foundation for the first floor?? I built this wall on the "0" floor, basement level. For some reason It's not showing up? It shows that it's tapped into the basement wall?? Uploaded plan. Stewart_2018_1-21-18.plan.zip

    barrel roof into sloped roof

    I'm trying to put a barrel roof entry into a sloped roof. See pic. I want the barrel to start from the garage fascia and go to the front door. I have it partially done, but was wondering how to close the 2/12 roof down onto or "join" the 2/12 pitch roof to the barrel roof. If I start to break lines and modify roof planes my self manually, sometimes I get a fascia board on the inside of the barrel ceiling. I tried the "join roof plans" tool and I get some funky roof concoction. I attached plan also. X9 Stewart_2018_1-19-18_copy.plan.zip

    barrel roof into sloped roof

    I don't know of any other way of making a barrel roof except for joining 2 roof plans and setting ridge to 0 degrees. If I try to do a flat roof to a barrel it gives me a single sided 1/2 barrel.
  24. When I do a camera view, why doesn't the area I have highlighted in yellow show? What is it in the layer display options do I not have checked?
