  1. Is there a way to modify the railing on a deck...spacing, height, shape, etc. When I click on the room I don't see "railing" listed. ROGER CHANGES 02.plan
  2. It would be such a pain to create an orthographic view and a polyline molding under each roof.
  3. Oh, I did post it but in an edit. I guess I didn't see the save button. Sorry. So it is a bug? Thanks
  4. I don't see why my left side return does not show. I read the section in the manual and all it did was describe what switches are in the dbx. pg 828. The wall is symmetrical under two planes so you would think both planes would show a return. Thanks for assisting!
  5. I've just discovered that the specs don't even need to match in order to get ridge caps. Maybe the best method should be get them close as you can in the plan and the specs dbx then...use "Join Roof Planes". I wold prefer not using join roof planes because I've noticed joining can move BOTH plan edges. I usually get one perfect in the plan and then try to move the other to the perfect one. You end up with ridge caps but your plan view is modified wrt all other planes. That is why I want to do it manually through the dbx.
  6. I wish I could see why one cannot be allowed to lock two values. It works fine for modifying a cuboid volume specifications . cuboid settings: volume 500 x 10 y 10 z 5 I can lock two out of four. If I set y to 50 and lock x at 10 and volume at 500, then my z value changes to 1. Effectively locking what I want to keep first. Is a 3D plane so much different?
  7. I would like to finally put this issue to rest. I don't wish to rely on luck to get the correct values in the fields. In my opinion, since I can have the above settings on the left, there is no law of physics that says I cannot have the same on the right. The problem is I cannot lock more than one field such that I can FORCE the software to change the field I want. I am aware that if I fiddle with it repeatedly for an hour, I will always get lucky and eventually the right values show up. I am missing a methodology to do this. see video. I apologize if it painful to watch. LOL roof attempt 019.plan Recording #9.mp4
  8. Thanks Solver et al. In summary... if you check "Roof Over Room" that creates gable wall without "Balloon Through Celling Above" being checked. RESULT: gable wall and roof over room and if you do not check "Roof Over Room", you can get gable wall by checking "Balloon Through Celling Above. RESULT: gable wall with no roof over room. I see. Thx
  9. Thanks all! Ridge Runner- I did have "auto rebuild attic roofs" on in the defaults. Chief16Designer- Checking "Ballon through ceiling above" worked! Solver-The only thing I see is the window is lower in the Z direction. see attached.
  10. I have a wall and a nice gable roof. I hear CA abhors a vacuum and readily fills the space with wall up to the roof. For some reason (user error), this wall is happy to remain at the ceiling height. Is there a most common cause of this 'wall laziness'? Thank you for any responses. Rocky
  11. Thanks, Michael. I guess my question is how is THAT possible given that the baseline height is dictated by the room height which is constant 10' and the baselines are exactly where they should be? Rocky
  12. A 10' ceiling height. baselines precisely on edge of wall. pitches same. BUT facia heights vary...How could this be possible? Thanks for helping! R roof attempt 014.plan
  13. I meant ceiling. I learned it didn't show because something was set to 0. Now it shows.
