    Symbols and Plants

    Looks like that isn't the issue. I tried grouping the plants with a 3D block to no avail. Seems like that theory is on the right track. Any other ideas?

    Excellent thinking. Good idea with the grouping. I will try it first thing tomorrow. Thanks!

    Symbols and Plants

    I'm creating a rendering for an entire set of brownstones on a street. I've created a the initial structure and I intend to convert it to a symbol in order to propagate it into a different plan file where I have already created the street, sidewalk, driveways, terrain, etc. I'm having trouble creating a symbol of the initial structure. It won't seem to include the plants when I create the symbol. I've gone thru the options and can't seem to find anything. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    Odd Shed Roof - can it be done?

    Yep. Those are about what I had come up with, with minor variation. I will be posting the results after talking with the contractor. If somehow this guy figures out how to do what he is attempting, I will be sure to make a visit to the site with my camera and post pictures of the results. Thanks a ton for the responses, everyone.

    Interesting... I'll see if he wants to tie it in like that. Thanks, Rich.

    Odd Shed Roof - can it be done?

    Thanks for the quick feedback guys. Glad to see that I'm not crazy... maybe his definition of a shed roof is different than what it really is. I'll have to work something else up and hope he digs it. Thanks!

    Odd Shed Roof - can it be done?

    Shane, the quick response is much appreciated. However, that approach is too costly for this build out. The contractor seems to think that it's possible with a 2 or 3 and 12 shed roof. I don't see how simply because a shed roof couldn't possibly wrap the corner and tie into the existing facia. I've included a picture of the start of a shed roof that he is wanting. However, I can only provide a start due to the fact that I don't know how to build the shed roof that he is requesting. I've highlighted the new roof in the attached image.

    Odd Shed Roof - can it be done?

    I have a client that is bidding a room addition. He insists that a shed roof can be used in this situation. I've racked my brain and worked around in CA plenty to know that this is impossible. Am I missing something here? Is it possible to add a 3 and 12 shed roof here that lines up with the facia on the existing gable roofs ? HERE is the plan file. Thanks!

    Half-Wall At Top Of Stairs.

    Good to know. I've been playing around with trials and lurking for so long - this was my first real post. Most of the time I don't even have to post a question because it's buried in these forums somewhere. Thanks again!

    Half-Wall At Top Of Stairs.

    I have built a staircase and am trying to create a half-wall at the top. I couldn't find any options that worked in the stair parameters so I created half-walls on top of the default stair railings. Unfortunately CA seems to think there should be a doorway or something of the like at the top of my staircase and I can't seem to get rid of the cut-outs in the sheet rock. I have attached images. Any help is much appreciated. Best regards, Jimmy
