  1. I am not sure why I can't get my foundation heights and interior ledge to show properly. I have 'hang floor platform above on wall' checked in the foundation wall defaults and I've also checked it in each of the individual wall specs as well as 'include ledger'. I am wanting an 11ft high stem wall. Also, in the room spec structure tab I cannot get the section to appear properly. I'm not sure why it is not working for me this time. Any thoughts?
  2. What baffles me is two of the other railings on the porch are the correct height. I looked at a few section views of the porch and do not see another floor.
  3. Is there a setting to adjust the height of a floating railing? I have tried dragging the stair side railing across and then breaking it, but the minute I break it the section shown floats. I've also tried drawing it from the column to the stairs and it still floats. I am not seeing a way in the elevation to select and lower. floating railing.pdf
  4. Thanks! That was it, the Y was at 14".
  5. The columns in my plan appear incorrectly in 3D. They are showing at the proper height but directly behind the proper location. I've had this happen before but not on every plan. I had to move them to take capture my 3D images and then back to their correct place for the plans. What could be causing this?Columns off.pdfporch plan.pdf
  6. Never said thanks everyone! I ended up saving it as a jpeg and saving in the plan. That allowed everything to show but when printed it was readable but not crisp.
  7. I need to send a DWG file to a client to get to an interior designer in their home country. I guess the internet is unreliable there and will be forwarded from a couple people. 1. Will the designer be able to work in 3D? Would you recommend sending a current view of each floor or export all floors? 2. I typically only give my clients a PDF of the layout, not a file that can be edited. Typically the engineer is the only one I send a drawing file. I'm curious how others handle this. Do you send a license to construct one home like the online plan sites? Thoughts?
  8. I imported a pdf into layout in X12. It shows properly in my layout view. When I send to print it looks fine in the pre-view window but when it look at the finished pdf views only a corner of my imported drawing is showing. I've restarted my computer, deleted and imported the file again but still no luck. I also brought it to the front of the drawing group and the file next to it I brought forward. When I select the pdf view box I do not get a break tool like I will with a typical view box. The pdf view box does overlap the nearby roof plan view box. Any suggestions?
  9. I have my roof built but need to lower it due to a wall height change. I am wanting the trusses to set on the top plate. I understand I need to use the raise/lower from clg. ht and raise off plate in the build roof dialog box but I seem to be doing something wrong. Any tips? Also, when I try this and retain edited and manually drawn roof planes I end up with a double roof. I have some roof planes I'd rather not recreate. Is there another way to lower them without rebuilding the roof? I have 3 levels to move. (garage, 1st and 2nd floor)
  10. Thanks, that is a time saver! I realized I needed to adjust the stem wall ht. in all floor levels in the defaults. (not just foundation) Then I reset the floor and ceiling hts. for all floors and it worked! Thanks for the tips!
  11. Thanks for the responses. I do have the defaults set but that did not change anything. I have gone room by room and where I can change the stem wall it is working. The bedroom, bath & closet all have remained grayed out for the stem wall. I have looked at it in 3D and cut a few sections and can't find anything wrong with the ceiling. The ceiling height is the same throughout the basement. Oddly, the wall has moved up but the slab is staying down at the bottom of the footing in those rooms. ???
  12. Is there a way to rebuild the foundation without losing the design I have already done? I need to change the stem walls from 10 ft. to 9 ft. If I select the bedroom room spec the stem wall height is grayed out. The living space stem wall height could be changed in the room spec.
  13. How do I keep the window jamb from showing in plan on the 3 ft framed wall covering the 3 ft foundation wall? The window sets in the framed exterior wall 42" above the floor. I even tried creating the furred wall in the middle of the room (3 ft high) and then slid it back into place. It still automatically created the window jamb shown in the photos. I really just need it to appear correctly in plan. I did uncheck fit frame to wall and have my frame depth at 6". Also, I cannot get the exterior wall color to match the others. I've changed it in the material setting, tried the eyedropper and the material painter. ?? basement window.pdf basment window plan.pdf
  14. I am not finding the Remember Zoom/Rotation. Where is that at? I found Chief's article #KB-02917 talks about this but doesn't mention setting the rotation in each view.
