  1. Metre's (M) and millimeters (mm) are the standard format for metric drafting, centimeters are for dress making!
  2. Weld plates with cast-in RF bars cranked to suit, steel post welded to base plates, see attached item 3 and 4 Steel Post Fixing.pdf
  3. I agree absolutely, in my work flow any CAD detail that can be re-used in another plan is blocked, labeled and stored in the library
  4. You can change/rotate the direction of a flooring overlay in each room if it is in the "Floor Finish" DBX. You can not change/rotate the direction of a flooring in each room if the flooring is part of the subfloor in the "Floor Structure" DBX. I submitted a report to Tech Support back in November and they say it is a program problem, not sure when they may! fix it. Workaround, spray the rotated floor texture over the subfloor surface, it adds a "0" thickness layer of the rotated texture in the floor structure.
  5. And plain english seems to be a problem also
  6. Been using a MSI 17" gaming laptop since 2014, never had any issues with it what so ever, also updated to Windows 10 when it came out
  7. Always worked for me, never had a problem
  8. I put this on the forum about a month ago, no one had the correct answer to fix it. I have already submitted this problem it to tech support. They acknowledge that it is a problem. They suggested doing a work around with a poly solid in the gap. There was no indication as to when it might be fixed
  9. Your defaults are set to a "crown" moulding, should be a "base" moulding

  11. Thanks for the video Eric I know the use of the Floor Structure DBX and the Floor Finish DBX. As I see it the Floor Finish is for floor overlays, overlay flooring panels, carpet, tiles, vinyl etc. Floor Structure is for concrete slabs, permanent particle board flooring or strip flooring fixed directly to the floor joists and for the floor joists/framing (all permanent floor structure items). If you put the floor planking/T&g strip flooring as you demonstrated in the Floor Finish then there is no floor surface on the floor structure. The top plate height is measured from the top of the floor structure surface to the top of the top plate. The skirting/base moulding sits on the floor structure top surface, both as in the real world. In CA if there is “no” floor surface in the Floor Structure, the top plate is measured from the top of the floor joists and the skirting/base moulding sits on the floor joists, not correct or as in the real world. It would seem that in the Floor Structure DBX you cannot rotate each rooms texture, it rotates the entire buildings floor surface, you can only do it in the Floor Finish DBX. Just a note about the gap in the corner roof soffit, I cut back the main roof planes each side (marked green) and inserted two small corner roof planes (marked red) and it worked and filled in the gap Ok, tried it again on another plan and it wouldn’t work, must need a fix, I will send it into tech support. Thanks for the help
  12. Thanks Eric and Glenn for your replies I assume the fixes are: 1.The roof baseline polyline fixed the soffit slope problem due to the step-back in the balcony exterior wall. 2. Changing the framing material definition back to a frame material fixed the two wall problems. Still can't resolve the floor planking texture, as I said I tried to copy and rotate the texture with no change, I just tried again, no change. 3. Still can't fix the gap in the back soffit 4. Glen you said - "You also have an unused Picture File Box over the living area - is that doing something?", not sure what you are referring to. I normally have the re-build "on" but turned it off to see what happened. Thanks Michael
  13. Palmer Plan: As-Built with Problems I have drawn an as-built plan for a house which is to be altered/re-modeled I have spent some hours trying fix some issues within the plan but have had no success Problems: 1. On floor 2 the floor planking in the hall should run length ways in the hall. I have tried coping the texture and rotating the planking texture 90º but it won’t rotate in the plan. See mark-up on the plan. 2. The roof has flat soffits all around the roof eaves. All roof planes have the same settings but in one area the soffit slopes up following the rafter. Also on three corners of the roof soffits they do not meet, there is a triangular hole. See mark-up on the plan. 3. On floor 1 there is a middle dividing wall the length of the house. The wall construction is exposed framing on one side and lining on the other side. For an unknown reason or it seems that when it re-builds when looked at in 3D a coloured cover or lining appears over the exposed side of the wall. If it is removed with the remove material surface tool the wall is as it should be but it keeps reappearing. See mark-up on the plan. 4. On floor 2 there is the same issue as above with the end balcony wall. It has exposed framing with Clearlite siding on the exterior, no lining on the interior side. A lining appears over the exposed side of the wall. See mark-up on the plan. Plan file attached Any help would be appreciated thanks Palmer Existing Test.plan
  14. The way I did it was to go thru all the line items in one std floor plan layer set. Check "modify all layer sets" at the top of the LDO DBX "before" changing anything. Change each line colour, line weight, and line style as required and then "OK" it. Also just re-selecting each colour, line weight, and line style but not changing them will change them in the other layer sets.
  15. Use two roof planes the same pitch and structure butting up to each other. Select and change the ceiling finish in each roof plane as required
  16. Ok yes missed/forgot that one, I am just trying to get "most" of the layer sets back to some consistent order
  17. Agree as you have noted I have the walls light in the roof plan and any other specific cases where need be
  18. ("Question re plan views? Can you use two different dimension scales for the same floor plan, ie floor plan view with a 1:100 dimensions and a floor plan view with 1:50 dimensions, same floor plan two different dimension scales, normally used when zooming into/enlarging an area of the plan.") Explanation:- I have a std floor plan view of a dwelling which is to have half of the house altered. The plan showing the whole existing house has been dimensioned and labeled with 200mm high text and is sent to layout at a scale of 1:100, 200mm text size is what I use for the 1:100 scale. For the part of the house to be altered I want to show only that part but enlarged it for clarity. The enlarged altered area is then dimensioned and labeled with 100mm high text and is sent to layout at a scale of 1:50, 100mm text size is what I use for the 1:50 scale. So you have one floor plan with two different dimension and text sizes
  19. To explain. When I say modify all layer sets I want to achieve consistency in all layer sets as follows:- 1. In the Layer Display Options DBX each line item under "Name" should have the same "Name" in ea layer set. 2. In the Layer Display Options DBX each line item under "Color" should have the same "Selected Color" for the same named item in ea layer set. 3. In the Layer Display Options DBX each line item under "Line Weight" should have the same "Selected Line Weight" for the same named item in ea layer set. 4. In the Layer Display Options DBX each line item under "Line Style" should have the same "Selected Line Style" for the same named item in ea layer set. 5. In the Layer Display Options DBX under "Text Style" ea layer set is set-up for the desired text style and font size for the plan scale. I use the same text font for all layer sets but with different font size for different scales. Over the years adding and changing things in the LDO DBX some items with the same name in different layer sets have different assigned colors, line weights and line styles. When I switch from say the floor plan to the plumbing plan to the drainage plan to the storm water plan to the site plan I want the name, color, line weight and line style to be the same. Hope that explains it, cheers
  20. My work flow set-up is back from when Anno sets were first introduced, I have every thing switching from one Anno/plan/layer set quickly and is set-up exactly as I need it. I have thought of re-doing my std template using the plan sets control, not sure if you can set it up as good as the Anno/layer set option. Question re plan views? Can you use two different dimension scales for the same floor plan, ie floor plan view with a 1:100 dimensions and a floor plan view with 1:50 dimensions, same floor plan two different dimension scales, normally used when zooming into/enlarging an area of the plan. I will try Roberts and Micks idea first, it may work. Thanks all for the help
  21. Thanks I'll give that a go, but a lot of time to change every thing
