  1. There are 2 types of fence: - one is a simple hog wire (4x4) metal wire fence between 6x6 posts. I need a 6' H & a 4' H version - the other is a cedar fence with horizontal boards of 2 different sizes spaced apart. In places this will need to sit on top of a conc wall and I read in the forum the best way to do that is to use a pony wall with fence / railing above and a terrain break I've attached images of both. I downloaded the Chief Bonus catalog for Materials Wire & Lattice and modified the Welded Wire to have a 4" x 4" version but when I try to change my railing panels to it by going into the specification dialog it doesn't recognize the wires as an panel option. And for the cedar fence I'm not really sure how to approach it. There is a Horizontal Stacked Panel - thin, in the Ext Fence Panels No 2 library but I don't know how to modify it. If I made a custom panel (out of 3D lines) with posts at each end I don't see that I'm able to group it together and save it as a library piece and then distribute? Anyway, HELP! I know there's got to be an easier way
  2. Is there a way to modify existing (supplied with Chief) fence panels or create a custom fence design? None of the pre-made ones are quite right and I have a lot of fencing in this project. Thank you!
  3. Ok, thanks... that's what I was afraid of. Re-reading my posts I'm sorry my typing / English has been so bad! I have a client meeting this evening and haven't gotten much sleep. While I've gone around and cleaned up a lot and continue to advance the model - hopefully more correctly, I have a MESS in the stairwell that just somehow happened and I have been spending way too much time trying to figure it out. Anyway, thanks a bunch for your help. it's been great! I keep re-watching your videos - they're a great tool!
  4. Hey I'm just seeing this! I've been busy cleaning up my model Thank you! I've got a lot cleaned up but there are still a few areas that are just misbehaving. Ok, I got this rail / partition to work but I have a few questions: - Why a partition? What is the difference? How does it behave differently? - When I go to change the end post sizes it only let's me change one end. I actually like no end posts just to end with a baluster except at the intersection where the 4x4 is fine.- How can I make plain rectangular balusters? Thanks very mush again!
  5. Ok, thank you very much! I really appreciate the help!
  6. Ok, let's try this again. I added Chief Architect Premier X14 to my signatures but, in case it doesn't show up I'm mentioning here as well Here is a zipped reduced plan file and a couple of imbedded images. Besides the window and walls that aren't presenting correctly there is also a hole in the exterior wall next to the Loft / 2nd floor platform under the lower sloped roof and the edge of the Loft floor is open. One last thing, on the 1st floor I have a screen wall between the kitchen and hallway. I'd like it to end at the end of each wall segment but I can't make that happen. Thank you for your help I hope this format is better / correct.
  7. I'm not sure what is going on with this wall and how to fix it. I've tried different ways of constructing it as a pony wall and as attic wall and I can't get it to work. 1/2 is over a loft railing and the other portion is over an area that is open to below / above. I'd appreciate your help. See attached screenshot with issue and here's a link to the model.!AiaeNgmzhnQU8ywAbKfztoULsZ2y?e=uO3337 I'm using CA x14 for this project. Thanks! 20220723_CA Help.pdf
