    rotate terrain but leave building plan as is?

    Very good, thank you. It's always something simple but this one was kicking my butt. I don't know why I had that light source there in the first place.

    rotate terrain but leave building plan as is?

    When I select everything to rotate, rotating is not an option. there is no rotation handle and in the transform replicate the rotate is not an option. I can select one element and rotate but if I select all, it is not an option. Here is the plan with just the terrain and perimeter and a plot sat image. just terain.plan
  3. I know this has been talked about before but I can not find it and I can't figure out how to do it again. I have a house drawing and I have the terrain drawn and I would like to orient the house differently on the terrain. I want to keep my house drawing square with my plan so it would need to be the terrain itself that has to rotate. I can rotate the terrain perimeter but that doesn't rotate the elevation lines etc. When I select the perimeter and all the elevation lines, i am not able to rotate the whole thing.

    Loft floor sticking through roof

    I didn't try that solution as the raised roof seemed to give me what I want and I have not really built framing for this plan yet. Just trying to ge the plan worked out first. Thanks for the comments.

    Loft floor sticking through roof

    Thanks for the tip Michael, that is a good idea.

    Loft floor sticking through roof

    Thanks, I was going to fix the windows later, (just sliding them closer together), but for some reason I wanted to keep the roof where it was while raising the ceiling/floor level from where it was on an earlier rendition. But now I can't see a reason for that so you are right, I will just raise the roof.

    Loft floor sticking through roof

    Yes! This is what I was missing. the windows I knew I was going to have to fix, they were wrong from the beginning but you are right, I was taking a plan with a lower ceiling and raising the ceiling on the main floor without considering that the roof should be raised as well or somehow rebuilt to accommodate the new floor level. I probably would have figured it out eventually but sometimes it helps to get another set of eyes on it. Thanks for this and thanks everyone else for the thoughts.

    Loft floor sticking through roof

    It is not an attic. Here is the whole plan. Making it into an attic room will work but then I have to deal with an unfinished sheathing on my ceilings etc. Obviously there is something I am not telling the program to do, that is what I am trying to figure out. Thank you. Untitled_1.zip
  9. I wonder why my second floor loft flooring is sticking through the roof and can be seen on the outside of the building?

    layers and floor levels

    Thanks, I didn't realize reference sets could be used this way. I will look into it some more.

    layers and floor levels

    I don't want to just "see" it for my own reference. I want certain things to be visible on different floors and then I can send them to plan view that way. I don't want every wall on the main level to be in red on my second level plan that I send to layout. I just want certain things, (like the outside stairs and landing on my garage or the landscaping), to be there.

    layers and floor levels

    It still seems like there should be a way to get things like landscaping to show up as I go to a different floor level, (other than using the floor reference display). Also things like deck footings show up in the plan view on the basement or foundation level but I would like them to show up on the main level plan view as well. I have a few garage projects where I have an outside stairs and landing up to a living space over the garage and I would like to get the stairs and landing to show up in the plan view on both levels. If I copy and past hold position, it will build a second stairs on the second level going up into space. Seems like there should be a way to get things to show up as I switch floors, a layer setting or something. Not having any luck searching.

    Stem wall and footing under slab

    Yes that is what I get too but I just wanted it to show on the foundation plan view. If I build the foundation I get it on the plan view but I get the stem wall with it on the cross sections.. After thinking about it, I think the thing to do is just build the foundations automatically and then when it is all done, go to cross sections and modify them, I also almost always have some step footings too so there are other things to change that won't rebuild properly. Anyway, I think I am good here, thanks for the help.

    Stem wall and footing under slab

    That works except I really don't want the same foundation stem wall that is on the other walls. I just want a thickened footing under the slab. I can go to a cross section and drag it up but then the auto foundation will fix it later if I rebuild or have it on auto rebuild. It would be nice if I could just change the foundation on that one wall to a thickened footing under the slab. I can do that by just changing the upper wall to a foundation wall but then it doesn't show on the foundation plan. So maybe leaving it as a non bearing wall so that the foundation rebuild will not mess with it and just drawing the thickened slab footing under it in as Solver said, is the only option...

    Stem wall and footing under slab

    Now if I draw another interior wall and I want it to be a bearing wall shouldn't it show a footing under the slab on the foundation level? I can get it to show a footing by changing it to a foundation wall but it still doesn't show it on the foundation level. I need a thickened area under the slab under that wall.5-20-19 fresh.plan
