  1. So it helped in some areas but it has cause several other problems on the inside and outside. It seems like it just shouldn't be this complicated.
  2. That didn't work. Not sure what do do next. Just making things worse Here is the plan file if anyone would like to take a crack at it. I don't do two stories to often.House 1.zip
  3. I thought that this should be automatic once above the roof line to be the exterior finish? Should I do this as a pony wall so I can split it or is there another way? Thank you for any help you can give me.
  4. Not sure if your still working on this but they do have a library for what yo are looking for
  5. I used the material region to put it on the wall and tried to rotate it 90d but that didn't work. Not sure if that is what you meant. What do you mean make a copy of the material?
  6. How do I change the direction of plank flooring if I'm putting it on a wall? Right now it is vertical and I want it to be horizontal. Any help would be appreciated
  7. That is actually a good idea for this type application. I never thought of a truss for that. Thank You!
  8. I don't know if this will help you but I have this knee brace in my library that I unblock in the plan and I can move them around and manipulate them for this type thing you are doing I move them around in elevation views and resize them as needed Knee Brace2.calibz
  9. I worked on this for over an hour and can figure out why this is happening. I don't remember ever having this problem before. The garage wall does not sit on the curb the way it is supposed to. Plan is attached but I'm not 100% sure I sent it correctly. Please let me know if it doesn't work. As always I appreciate any help anyone can give me Garage.zip
  10. I would like to design a stage and put these Acoustic Foam Panels on the back wall. Haven't been able to find it in the library. Can anyone help me with this? This is a one time thing for me to do at my church and I didn't want to spend to many hours creating it if I don't have too.
  11. Thanks guy's I like the idea of using the stucco for the finish.
  12. I'm building a balcony off my cabin in Big Bear, CA and not familiar with deck coatings that can handle the snow. Tried to search the library in Chief but had no luck. I got a recommendation to possibly use a material called "Tufflex". https://www.tufflexpolymers.com/ Two questions: Is there something in the library that I can use in the plan? Does anyone have any other recommendations for other materials or is Tufflex and good product to use?
  13. Yes, I agree but sometimes when I search for an answer to something it usually with help me to understand something that I have been missing or open my eyes to something else. In this case is was just a big waste of everybody's time! Thank you all for your putting up with me! Al though I do enjoy the chalange!
  14. I don't believe that line weight number goes to anything. Its just there doing nothing. This layer is just to separate the main layer from everything else quickly for the framing plan and other uses. At least for now that is the way I see it.
  15. I get all that as far as changing the line weights. That's pretty simple. The part I don't get is the function of the line weight in this picture for the "Wall, Main Layer Only"? When I change it, it does not seem to effect anything. Should this just be something I ignore or am I completely missing the boat (out to lunch!, senile.....)?
  16. Are you referring to the "Wall Type Definition Box"? If you are, there is nothing in there with the 35 weight that I see under walls main layer.
  17. So, I know that when I select walls main layer that it shows only the main layer. What I don't know is what is the difference between the line weight from the normal wall to the main layers only? When I change the weight number to the main layer only it doesn't seem to effect anything.
  18. Thank You! As usual, you saved me again!
  19. I rotated my plan 180 degree but now when I put text in it's always upside down. Is there a way to fix it so I don't have to change it every time I put text in? Any help would be appreciated. Thank You
  20. Yes I get that but when you set it up like Joey, mm doesn't really matter anymore. Out with the old and in with the new! Thank for for your input, I appreciate it!
  21. I can tell you right now that I like it already! It really simplifies your line sizing! I don't need 200 different line sizes to pick from
  22. Thank you Joey! I'm gonna take if for a spin and see how I like it with your settings?
