    Different Stair and Deck Railing framing methods?

    I searched first but I gave up too early, I'll look again and ok I will keep this mind for future questions. Thank you for your reply. Yea, I figured this much the problem would be the stairs. Thank you for your reply.
  2. Is there a way in which the railing for both the stairs and the deck/landing... can go to the foundation? can go on the side of the deck/landing and stairs? I've been having a lot of trouble getting the program to accurately convey Architecturally different methods of structural framing. I work for a structural engineering firm we prioritize the structure first and let the architecture fall in line when possible. I've attached the plan and the details that I am trying to produce. Any help would be appreciated. Current Project with existing railing on the side of the stairs and deck: Structural Plans for the Current Project: 1327 Poquoson Ave.plan Older Project done in Autocad LT, where the railing is on the side of the stairs and the posts goes from the foundation to the beam for the roof, rafters and ceiling joists.
  3. My firm has structural standards that are normally done in AutoCAD. I want to be able to achieve them in chief architect. This is our section annotation. I was able to create the top but I need help on the triangle on the tail. Also, is there a way to change the appearance or display the structural framing members as a polyline in plan view and have them as original in 3D? We currently use polylines for our joists, headers, girders, beams, rafters, etc. with a 1" to 3" Global Line Width and either phantom, continuous, or dashed/hidden line types in AutoCAD. I want to be able to produce our structural drawings like in chief architect instead of going back in forth because I like the auto framing features in chief. Let me know if additional files are needed for clarity. Or if this is the wrong forum for this topic.

    Roof Hole Cutting Off Gutters

    Ok, I'll try to do it next time. But I just deleted it and started over and figured a way to do it. I just did an auto floating dormer > exploded it > used line break on the main roof > modified the roof plane to meet the shed dormer and to go around the walls. Thanks again I will attach the file and the vector views next time!

    Roof Hole Cutting Off Gutters

    Hi, I am trying to continue the exterior wall up to the dormer. When I exploded the auto dormer and extended the roofline it cuts off the gutter and eave boxes. I don't know if there is a better method for this or an easy fix, that's why I'm here. Thanks in advance.
