    Framing overview

    Thanks guys, My old age is catching up to me. When I turned off :Walls,Foundation" the problem was solved I was turning off "Foundation". Can't thank all of you enough. Now I can make some headway.

    Framing overview

    When I turn on all of the 3D framing overviews I still can't get the floor 0 to show the 1st floor framing If I use the floor overview I get the 1st floor joist framing but also the foundation walls. If I delete the foundation walls then the screen goes blank

    Framing overview

    I am using X8 software. I built the roof using roof planes. Then built the roof framing.Then viewed framing overview. Framing showed up in 3D Good results Put floor selection on 0. Built floor 1. Put floor selection on floor 1. Built floor 2. Went to floor framing to build floor joists. Good results Put floor selection on floor 0. Went to framing overview. 2nd floor framing was on screen. Bad result Put floor selection on floor 1 Went to framing overview. 2nd floor framing was on screen. Good results Double checked layer display to make sure correct framing boxes were properly checked I must be missing a step somewhere. Just don't know where. I have been a CA user for over 12 years and never had this problem before. I think my senior years are getting the best of me.

    Framing overview

    I can get the roof framing overview and the 2nd floor framing overview. I can not get the 1st floor framing overview. Instead I get the 2nd floor framing overview. I need all 3 framing overviews to send to layout What am I missing as this is the first time I have had this problem.

    Show metal siding vertical lines

    Thank you, I didn't think to use roofing material for siding would work.
  6. How do I get the vertical lines on metal siding to show in the 3D view? It currently shows as a solid color and prints as a solid color John

    Electrical 2d Symbol sizes

    Using X8 Why are the symbol sizes different when I place them on the drawing from the Library? Is there a way to make them the same scale size? Electrical.pdf
  8. Thanks all, I would not have been able to figure this out without all of your help.
  9. Hi Glen, Your method worked fine, except I can't find a way to close in the areas of the invisible walls What is the magic solution? I am using X8, if that means anything.
  10. Tried both methods, but can't get results I want. This is a one story house with a cathedral ceiling in the center section. I believe I have seen a video that shows how to pull down a wall that enclosed a stairwell in a room with a cathedral ceiling, but I don't know the correct wording to recover the video.
  11. How do I maintain a closet wall height of 9' in a room that has a cathedral ceiling? In the 3d view, the wall extends to the cathedral ceiling. I want the ceiling of the closet to serve as a shelf for decorative items. Avon Catalog | Target Red Card | Target Ad
  12. I would like to have the stacked stone texture to be shown on my elevation views and not the stacked stone pattern. The pattern view is one color and cad lines representing the stone. The stacked stone texture has a 3d appearance and is in multiple colors. This makes for a more attractive elevation view. Is there a way to accomplish what I want?

    Plot plan text size

    I did not explain my problem correctly. On my plot plan, when I open the polyline specification display, I select under Line Style the boxes that " Show Angle, Show Length, Show All Angles. It displays on the plot plan, but the print is so small I can't read it without zooming in to see the length and angle. This is the text size I want to increase.

    Plot plan text size

    Well, back again. Have my plot plan finished , but when I send it to layout I can't read the co-ordinates. How can I change the text size on the plot plan so it can be read on the layout?
