    CAD DETAIL FROM VIEW DIMENSION ISSUE

    No luck. I am stumped. Still dropping random text. 5 trys resetting dim defaults, always different drops. Calling it quits for the night.
  4. This is an interesting read https://www.smithcurrie.com/publications/common-sense-contract-law/avoiding-unintended-liability-for-design/ If the project is a reno, addition or resto this is a fairly good plan disclaimer we developed >

    CAD DETAIL FROM VIEW DIMENSION ISSUE

    Agree. When I click > its a dimension line. No idea why its dropping random dim texts to centerline when I "cad detail from view"

    Issue Joining Two Gable Roofs

    Agree with above You may not have enough overhang on roof plane. Also make sure your active layer set control is displaying all roof elements. You can use the active set "all on" to see.

    Mid century rounded roofs??

    Here is an easy way. From floor plan view locate and highlite your roof plane and use display one floor up (at bott task bar) to move roof plane up to attic. Use circle tool and align a circle (you choose circle size) at bott corner of roof where you want the rounded clip. Highlite roof plane, choose break line tool (again bott task bar) be sure to click stay in this mode thumbtack, and create a series of break lines at this rounded corner. 6 or so should work. Clear out of break mode. again highlite roof plane, zoom to roof corner, pull breake lines around circle. They should snap to circle radius. Take a full render camera view. If it looks choppy on the radius you created add more break lines.

    CAD DETAIL FROM VIEW DIMENSION ISSUE

    Oh I use the 3D features, working thru design with clients but 2D for construction plans. Using cad detail from view worked fine with my previous versions. May be a glitch. Guess I will just have to keep moving the random affected Jay.pdfdim texts manually.

    Printing Layout with Physically Based Renders

    Yeah. Run into that a lot. In the past I've used standard palette colors because they rendered better than manufacturer catalogue choice.

    CAD DETAIL FROM VIEW DIMENSION ISSUE

    Method 1 - Thats pretty much my format. When the design is complete I cad the floor plans and elevations using "detail from view". Then I work thru my customized active layer displays to produce framing plans, section thrus etc... then cad these using "detail from view", then send each cad detail from project browser/cad details to its respective page of my layout template. Then I just work the layout pages one by one, importing my blocked cad notes and detail blocks from user library exploding/editing/using what I need,dumping what I don"t. Thank you for plan kudo"s. Keeping it simple. Contains only whats required by code.

    Printing Layout with Physically Based Renders

    Glad to hear you issue is resolved. Adding terran area over glitchy items worked for me in the past. Found that in working with elevation data less is more. Also never noticed much difference between standard renders VS physical based renders. Maybe just me.
