  1. As Eric is alluding to in his messages there are many ways to accomplish this but one of the easiest is not overcomplicating it and using a single material wall (say color-White) and placing windows with arches and matching roof shape...
  2. Hay un grupo de usuarios que hablen español en el Facebook.
  3. Estoy un poco mas sur en el Panama pero hago la mayoría de mi trabajo en EEUU por distancia.
  4. Gotcha. Any chance you tried viewing the pdf in another pdf viewer? I don’t know if that would make a difference but id does with other pattern issues for some people…
  5. I would offer to help on this as I am the one that assisted the original designer of this house to get the roof correct but that would be violation of design copyright infringement…. Perhaps you have permissions from that designer to copy their plan?
  6. Have you tried changing your drawing sheet line weight scale to 1:150mm? I find that gives a little more control.
  7. I regularly collaborate with several experienced and less experienced users all over the country including many in Northern California. I would be interested in discussing your needs with you to see if I am a good fit for you. I sent you a PM with my contact information if you would like to reach out.
  8. Just noticed your wall definition is very messed up as well. The air gap should be in the interior layer and everything on exterior of framing should be in your exterior layers. Just the framing layer in main layer.
  9. Are you looking for renderings if it? If not setting the framing layer to detail as insulation and set your cavities as insulation r value appropriate to the rigid foam amount. In the materials list it will send square footage of insulation.
  10. 1.) You haven't built a foundation level yet so no way to show the framing for the level 1 deck 2.) You have auto framing turned off for that deck. 3.) How do you propose to drive a car across the deck to access your garage?
  11. Just use vector view and send as plot lines which is highly recommended for con docs. As long as your texture doesn’t have a pattern associated then you won’t see anything except the outlines.
  12. FWIW I have found matterport to be a lot more accurate than canvas.
  13. Even though it will not help you with the model creation itself it will be able to be imported as a symbol where you can size it based off of a known dimension and have a full 3d symbol. You can use the slider to cut from the top and get a floor plan you can trace over. You can also use the matterport online model to take measurements to help with your window/door sizes/placements, heights, etc.
  14. Curved cabinets in conjunction with room molding poly lines. But it does take quite a bit of fussing.
  15. The blank line type is also an option.
  16. I do it auto and then manually adjust the header size as its just to change the depth and the framing around it.
  17. You will get a significant larger pool of candidates if you consider remote designers (that is very common these days as probably 80-90% of designers work remotely these days).
  18. Any reason not to use the actual solar panel symbols in the bonus catalog instead?
  19. You got a different drafter that did the conversion for your .plan file. Their template does not have that wall type in their template. My experience is their templates are horrible and from X12 at best so IMHO best practice is to Edit all area and copy and paste the model into your own template.
  20. Open roof dbx > select shadow trim panel > select help button at bottom of dbx and read the description.
  21. Place the windows on floor 1 and change the elevations then place them. Set wall to balloon frame and you are good to go. No need to go to 2nd floor.
  22. Try putting this in the offering services and/or chat forums.
  23. This is highly debatable and most of the true pro concrete guys will tell you not to score an interior slab if monopoured with the footings as it is unnecessary and can even weaken the overall foundation slab.
