    Angled Porch Columns

    Don't know how to make the soffit lean out. I have watched the videos on sloping soffits and placing them under a roof but I don't know how to manipulate that to make it actually a "lean to" porch column.

    Angled Porch Columns

    Anybody have a good tutorial to make angled porch columns as shown in this drawing on the far left? Thanks in advance.
  4. This is exactly what I was going for. Good to know that it is actually possible. Thanks for the tips and I will watch some videos and play around with auto build more.
  5. I definitely need to...I get so frustrated with it pretty quickly. If I have different roof pitches (12 for main gable, 6 for gable end to end, and 4 for roof over porch) will auto roof be able to do them all?
  6. Me again! This roof has been giving me fits.... mainly the roof over the wrap around porch. It was a very simple roof until the homeowners wanted to bump the house out in the middle sections front and back. It may still be a simple fix that my brain is just not comprehending.... anyone want to take a shot at screen recording and sharing how you would join these roof planes? Jefferson Ranch Project.plan

    Angled Kitchen Peninsula ?

    It's me again! My client would like to have an angled kitchen peninsula (as pictured). Trying to figure out the easiest way to make this happen. I have not found a way to manipulate a cabinet to do what I would like it to. Would this be a situation where I would need to create a custom symbol? Anyone have any experiencing with similar cabinet work? Thank you.

    Gable Roof Vent and Deck Railing Question

    These were all extremely helpful!! Thank you so much for taking the time to go through that. I appreciate it!
  10. At a loss here! Could someone take a 3D look and tell me if you have any suggestions for either of these two things.... #1 I am trying to place a round gable roof vent on the left front main gable as seen on the right side... It will not let me center it and it also will only show the outer edge of the vent. It's like the middle area of the vent is behind something. I do have a material region over this area if that is relevant information. #2 My other issue is the second story balcony on the front of the structure. Out of the blue, I must have done something that I did not notice to cause the right side railing of this balcony to become a wall of some sort. You can see an outline of a wall here when you turn off railings, but it will not let me select it no matter what. When I move the balcony railing from it's current location it goes back to normal. Only I don't want to move it because this is where it needs to be. Thank you for any help. Mountain View Apartments Project.plan

    Deck Railing Issue

    I opened the object, went to newels/balusters tab > balusters > library > fencing & millwork > ironwork > pole

    Deck Railing Issue

    Can someone tell me why my deck railing is doing this? And explain how I can make it stop doing this? I want to have iron rods for balusters so I changed it in the library and it wants to give me all these rows of iron rods. Thank you for the advice!

    Custom Siding Design Help??

    Hello! I have a client who is wanting this kind of siding design (see attachment). I am a fairly new user of CA and I am having trouble finding a siding material and even trying to create one to mimic this design. I have tried creating a polyline solid and converting to a symbol, and that worked for me when I was trying to make horizontal deck railings. But it will not let me do the same thing with the siding. Anybody have any tips? They just want 6" trim pieces spaced apart over a smooth hardie board siding. Very similar to board and batten but more space between the trim pieces. Any help is appreciated!
