  1. Can anyone tell me why my roof trusses are not showing when I draw them in on this plan? I've watched every video and cannot work them out. The closest I came was getting trusses with vertical studs/gable end style. Uploaded them to online docs due to size: https://docs.zoho.com/folder/3onryc107a88f1fbb41cfa7e7edf28c57f7d1 Also, I am trying to show 22mm battens on top of the truss, and attached to the ceiling for the wall plasterboard to attached to (Australian style). Does anyone know how to set this up? see attached Using x12.
  2. Is there a quick way to do this roofline? I tried putting another level above but its not working. I've done this years ago but can't get it now
  3. Attached are the section and plan views. The dormer above the Living works fine. The one in the bedroom is having glitches. The upper floor is a 1500 high half-height room.
  4. This is the plan and sectional showing the railing upstairs
  5. Anyone know why my railings are cutting through the ceiling?
  6. Can anyone tell me why my dormer window is all strange inside?
  7. What do you have your post settings at? Mine go through the roofline no matter what I change.
  8. I've never figured this out. When I put a skillion/sloping roof over a deck, the posts never reach to the top. I've tried everything. I usually do them to the top rail only, then add a full height post made from a soffit, but it takes time. There must be a way it does it automatically. Anyone know?
  9. I've got a lot of detail in my plans and 3D. Ive got 8gb DDR4 ram. The stats show its using around 6gb of that. Im thinking I need to go 12gb or even 16gb. Before I shell out for it, I just want to check opinions if 12gb will speed it up?
  10. Figured something out. You can double-click on the schedule, then unselect the rooms you dont want included. It deleted them and adds up the total of the ones you kept.
  11. Thanks. I never used Object Eyedropper. It would have saved me hours.
  12. Finally got it. I made the mistake of editing Page 1 as the template, when I should have edited Page 0. Seems obvious now.
  13. Does anyone know why you can't select multiple rooms and change the Room Type for them? It would be good to select all the carpeted bedrooms and change the room type and fill type at once.
  14. Does anyone know if there is a way to sub-total Room Types in the Room Schedule? For costings it would be ideal to have the wet areas, concrete, raised floor ect automatically broken down.
  15. Im trying to delete that Page 0 as it was a completely different sheet design, but it won't let me modify it or delete. If I try and start a new layout, it still inserts it. Does anyone know how to get rid of it?
  16. Im exporting my 3D models to Digital Locker but they are not opening. eg: https://accounts.chiefarchitect.com/3DV/view?share=102145342441523 Anyone know why this would be happening?
  17. I haven't done this before. Im trying to set up multiple sheets - floorplan 1, floorplan 2, elevations, 3D etc. I imported the first one with the logo and details on it and used it as a template to create the others. But now when I export a floorplan, it is transferred to all pages. Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong here? Also, when I export an elevation or sectional view and then update the model, it won't update on the elevations plan and I have to export it again. Should it be updating automatically? NB: Im not an architect. I just do up the basic overviews with a nice presentation and send them to the drafter at the end.
  18. THanks for that. I downloaded the NVidea controller and reset the card. Its much smoother and everything works now. I would have thought the computer/program would have run the upgraded card by default.
  19. I just bought x11 and its having some major issues with constantly freezing. I have to close it and re-open it all the time. Importing items takes forever. Every time I add a modified item to the Library it freezes. When I export a model it doesn't open online: https://3d-viewer.chiefarchitect.com/go?share=027618414325482 Other than that, it is very smooth and the graphics look ok. My laptop is fairly fast. Is anyone else having these issues?
