    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.

    crazy roof

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    two questions......

    hey guys, happy new year! 1) i will be downloading X12 from X11 tonight to catch the sale price. I currently have several projects going in X11. Are there any precautions to take? I have asked this before but want to double check again to avoid any loss of work. 2) i put alot of time on a project that i finished this summer (about 40 hours). The owner came back in november and wanted to change alot and add a bonus room. I want to check the exact hours from the time log from 11/23/20-12/30/20. when i do the start/finish date in the log it spits out 888 hours lol. how do we use this feature properly?

    two questions......

    10-4......all i needed to know. may just keep X11 installed for these projects until im done. apparently the software isn't what takes up space, it's the plan files and archives.

    issues with open below

    this house was completed and paid for this past summer. i saved a copy of the plan file to see if someone can figure out what's going on. stairs were added as you enter the home to go to a bonus room they want to add now. i cannot get the open below to work now that i created a floor 2 so it would recognize space in the attic. any suggestions on what i did wrong? thanks guys. i hate tearing back into finished homes. basically the front window in the gable should be letting natural light thru and the entire l shaped stairs should have no ceiling for head clearances. everything else is changed. bonus room above kitchen is developed on floor 2. alot has changed on this file, the roof is reconfigured among other things with the walls. so there are things out of whack like electrical and such.

    X12

    I am about to upgrade to X12 from X11. I still have ongoing projects started in X11. Someone on the forum recently sent me a plan file to look at from X12. It wouldn't let me open it stating it was from a newer version. When i upgrade will i still be able to work X11 projects? I don't intend on keeping two versions loaded on my PC and save hard drive space.

    Business Sign

    Any good tips or vids on how to make a nice sign with uplights for an office? i used polyline solids but don't like it and can't get the lettering to work and show on the sign. thanks
