    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    Thanks Michael. You are correct on all points. I didn't know the limitations of the tool until I saw Steve's video. Having an AutoCAD background, I was hoping for perfect alignment; however, your recommendation of using a CAD mask will do the trick. Thanks again!

    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    Wow. Thanks Steve. I definitely have a better understanding of how the tool works. Putting some transparency on the framing layer really helped to see how CA was creating the intersections. Again, the video is very much appreciated. Kevin

    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    Steve - When I select the smallest wall, I get 6 edit handles (image attached). Are all 6 of these handles specific to this smallest wall or do they pertain to the adjacent walls too? Sorry, but this is confusing to me and I can't see clearly what to do in this case. My first thought is to create a miter, but moving the handles does not produce this... Help!

    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    Steve - thanks for the input. I do know about wall layer intersections, but not really sure what I'm doing in this case. I've watched Chief's videos on the subject using X6, but they don't really go into a lot of explanation. You wouldn't happen to have a video on your YouTube page, would you? I believe I have watched all your videos and don't recall seeing one. Is the goal here to miter the wall layers or connect them in another manner? Resize about Inner Surface is my default setup as I do so many as-builts measured from the interior. Thanks again for you help. Kevin

    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    Thanks Michael - will try that.

    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    Thanks Alan. I've tried that a few times and my wall dimensions change. When I attempt to correct their size, the joint breaks again.

    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    I got three new issues with this plan. How do I resolve the two circled intersections? I've tried the wall intersection layer tool, but having no luck. Also, there's a return air vent where marked and the framer used two 2 x 4 studs back to back. Is there a way to get the walls to sit next to each other? I'm having all kinds of weird things going on when I pull the outer wall over. I will remove the drywall from this unfinished area, but wanted to know the process to keep CA from joining these walls. Thanks again, Kevin CHF_David 1st Floor_AS-BUILT_02-25-20_V2.plan

    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    Thanks Eric. I just stumbled on that technique of over drawing and then adjusting... Kevin

    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    Joe - thanks. What I haven't drawn yet is a pantry behind this wall, so the 13.5" thickness does not apply to the space behind - only the 3.25" projection is this wide. I suspect this projection was scabbed onto the interior 4 framing and was hoping to replicate it the same way. I guess I'll know more when I start laying out the kitchen. I suppose in this case, Alan's method would work and I could always use your suggestion of a doorway. Thanks again.

    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    Thanks Alan. I'll give that a try. Kevin

    Connecting Walls w/ Varying Thicknesses

    When I try to return the wall in the 3.25" direction, it disconnects from the adjacent walls.
  12. I've got an as-built I'm starting this morning. There are several walls with varying thicknesses that I need to connect correctly. I am not so much worried about how they are actually framed, but want a clean connection for my floor plan view. I am wondering the proper way to handle the attached situation. I have drawn red CAD lines to denote the shape I'm trying to achieve. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kevin CHF_David 1st Floor_AS-BUILT_02-25-20.plan

    Grain Direction on Cabinet Door

    I did make several versions of the texture with coordinate offsets. It really is too much trouble and any similar door/drawer types are locked to use the same texture unless I add them individually in the Front/Sides/Back DBX. This is one area I wish Chief would improve on. It would be nice to have a fixed starting point (such as world 0,0) for the textures to project from. This would make all mapping unique as long as the symbols don't occupy the same space. Thanks again Eric.

    Applied Molding on 45 degree tray ceilng

    One more thing - at 12:18 in your video you say to make sure to control-select the symbol. Why is this?

    Applied Molding on 45 degree tray ceilng

    Thanks Michael. I did finally get it yesterday although it took me several hours of playing around. I sent the sketch to the client and she hated the applied molding (thought it was too formal). Anyway, at least I learned a lot from the exercise. Thanks again for the video. Kevin
