    Help with a second floor (X12)

    Thanks for that video Eric. Maybe it has something do with interiors? I can use the align wall feature without issue but unfortunately no snapping to those refence wall lines for me. My snapping works as normal for everything else though.

    Eric, I tried the point to point tool but still could not select or snap to the refence layer. Maybe a setting I'm missing?

    good idea Val. Only problem is I'm using interiors and I don't have access to gutters that I can see. That building looks very similar to what I am trying to achieve structurally though so I may have more questions for you as I move along. Thanks for the input.

    Thanks for the help! Makes sense about the roof. I guess I didn't try the point to point tool, I'll give that one a shot.

    Help with a second floor (X12)

    So, I am an interiors user and understand that I may not have the functionally needed for this, but I am trying to help someone out and learn at the same time. My issues are: -I added a second floor to this plan but they don't seem to interact well with the flat parapet roof I have drawn and I don't know how to fix it, big gap shown between. -I also don't know how to accurately move one floor relative to another, I turn on the reference floor but cannot select that layer to measure from, is that possible? I'm not an architect or builder, I normally draft interior cabinetry so my knowledge of how something like this would be built in real life is limited, so please pardon me if I'm going about this all wrong. I have attached the X12 interiors plan for anyone that might have a minute to take a look and give me some advice. Thanks a lot and I hope you are all doing well.

  6. Michael, Thanks for that contribution, I did not think of that at all but will definitely try that out. Always good to have a faster solution at hand. Mike...Thanks! Mark, I Think you might have to change your name to mike to be in this post...HAHA!
  7. Thanks! Luckily I found a decent image of some walnut grain. Yeah, I don't model things in chief. Only because I never really dedicated any time to learning how to get good and fast at it. I'm pretty comfortable with sketchup and it just seems much more intuitive for that kind of stuff so I just do it there. But really I should learn that skill at some point.
  8. Placed in the job and added some hardware. Better not be any changes to this cabinet! haha!
  9. so basically I ended up kind of making it the second way but I built the panel in sketchup and then painted it with walnut in chief.. It didn't take too long but only worth it on a small job like this which is basically two cabinets side by side. I was hoping there might be an easier way that I couldn't think of. Thanks for your thoughts Mark
  10. Is there a reasonable way to make all the doors and drawers on a cabinet look like they were cut from one sheet of veneered plywood? example attached. Thanks

    Help with flat roof with offset 2nd Floor.

    Thanks for the help with this, I definitely learned something today. Here is my progress so far. I was thinking a molding would work well to cover the top of the exposed walls, seems like there is no actual option to deal with that.

    also, thanks for the term "parapet", that got me to a video that should be really helpful.

    Help with flat roof with offset 2nd Floor.

    Thanks, I did end up with that same look you've got there once but thought I must be missing something. I'll try messing with the walls once I get that look again. I noticed trying to remove the overhang was really making things messed up. For now I modified the exposed ceiling black like you said.

    Help with flat roof with offset 2nd Floor.

    Ah! That seems to achieve the effect for sure. Is this type of roof difficult to build using the actual roof tools? I'm just curious if it would be an easy few clicks in premier vs not really possible in interiors? Or just the same difficulty in both versions? I know interiors is missing a whole tab of roof structure options so. Just curious for the future. Thanks for the quick reply Eric!
