    crazy roof

    guys, to further complicate this home, it has a false ceiling. the living is vaulted all the way from the kitchen to the fireplace below two different height gables. my problem i ran into from day one is the highest gable coming down into the living space. i ballooned thru ceiling above but nothing. it has to be on top of the ceiling planes i manually created to close off the gable at attic level. i am not grasping these attic walls on this home......arghh. plan attached an dupdated. dormer also has to be functional and open to living space.

    lines to hides

    Can anyone tell me what these are on the framing plans? I turned all the walls off and then went through every layer turning them off and they still exist. They seemed locked and you cannot click them. I have only see this in X12. This is the first time in X11.

    moulding polyline

    Ohhhhh, I get it it. The whole time I was thinking the height was for the height of the molding so I was inputting 3". It's actually the height above floor. I am used to seeing height in absolute, terrain and finished floor options. Thanks guys.

    moulding polyline

    Guys, I am not too good with manual mouldings. I need to add a piece of moulding where it's circled but it keeps putting it on the floor. Why can't we give it a height above floor. I draw the line in plan view and make it a 3d moulding polyline. Apparently I am doing something wrong. The mouldings you see in the pic are automatic with the cabinets.

    aggravating dims

    yes, auto elevation dims works great. i just really like the centerline dims that NKBA throws in. thanks

    aggravating dims

    more, very aggravating and time consuming to pull the grips away.

    aggravating dims

    ok, so where do we turn off moulding dims in NKBA? I have unchecked all the options except for cabinets and fixtures and still get these pesky things.

    SIGN

    hey guys and gals, a couple years ago i made a simple sign and cannot remember nor find the article on high i did it step by step. it was a business sign. it did not contain any 3d lettering. what i do remember was making a rectangle polyline sold and somehow was able to overlay the name on the sign from a bitmap or something. it came out great and added it to my business project i was working. any tips on how this is done?
