  1. In my experience, while certain individual areas can be manipulated, I find I get a much more consistent model generation if my structure defaults for any given project are accurate before I get started. Just my opinion I guess
  2. CA uses floor and ceiling elevations to establish the way the model is developed- This also dictates where things like stairs and roofs are created. IMO, if you take the time to set up your model parameters correctly, the model, and all of its components, will usually be generated accurately
  3. Quite possibly the worst attempt in history at an ISO scribble on a screenshot but here is my 2 cents. To piggyback on the truss concept, if you could use scissor or parallel chord trusses similar to what Michale and V are mentioning above, you could look at a multi-ply girder on either end and box girders running in-between. Truss company should be able to manufacture a profile for the girders that will allow for a deep enough box to hang off of it as long as you are willing to provide sufficient depth. They may be able to design them with enough drag load to handle the lateral requirements.
  4. HD has its own site and forum- may want to try and post there. Other than that, what you are asking is very vague- Any way you go, I would suggest starting with some training videos to help understand the software-
  5. Thanks Lance- much appreciated! I also opened in Sketch up web and played with it as Eric suggested.
  6. Sorry - contains 4 pool symbols.
  7. I jumped on 3d warehouse and found a symbol for Mod-pools for a project we are working on. The issue is that the SKP symbol contains 34 different objects - of course I really only need the one. Any suggestions on how to extract an individual symbol from the group? Mod+Pools.skp
  8. Not sure how it works in HD - I believe they have their own forum- but in CA there is an option to blend texture with materials which should take care of it.
  9. Simplest way I see wis to get rid of the 2 additional low roof planes and modify the upper one with break lines.
  10. Basically similar to what eric said I believe
  11. I drew the original shape in plan view but as it would be constructed from the top at a width of 1 1/2" or whatever the depth of the truss chords are- Then I took an elevation view of that 3d solid a brought in a CAD detail of the truss shape you were after and used it to modify from that perspective.
  12. Could use a bit more information to really try and help
  13. Thanks Eric- I don't think was in tight enough to grab the hole - all good.
  14. Tab to try and move from selecting the solid to the hole? Just tried it and it reacts similar to the next command- does not recognize the hole.
