    Tile Plan- 2D/ Construction Doc

    Something this small, I would just draw lines to replicate the grout line, and be done with it. I never know what the client will end up using, so I don't show these lines. But since your doing interiors, I guess you need to. Drawing lines is far better than the frustration of trying to offset. My $.02. :-)

    Wow.. never knew that.. for years been locking things.. that was it. I knew it had to be simple, and I was overthinking it. Thanks Chris.

    Just curious if there is a way that I can set it where my text can be easily picked without having to lock items? I thought by changing the order that would do it. When you r ripping through the model annotating, having to stop to lock a items, like interior fixtures or cabinets, just to move text, is a buzz kill.

    Railings in doorways with arched tops

    Just had to do this.. making the railing off to the side and changing to a No Room Def worked perfectly.

    Bookcase secret doors

    Just saw this post, was looking up the bookshelf doors as well. Then I found under the Bonus catalog "Doors No.3 Specialty" there is a inswing and a outswing bookshelf door. Just modify to your liking (the 2D symbol isn't the greatest though). Other cool doors in this catalog; like a star ship door (in case you want to design a Death Star), or the security door folder has hatch doors so you can design cruise ships. Now that's a challenge for someone bored...

    Connecting different pitched roofs

    As you get more experienced Philip, you will find that you will hardly use the auto function. I haven't in years.
  9. Hi Scott... The ad states your needing a design-BUILD firm. Just making sure that's what your looking for. I'm not affiliated with a build firm down there, is why I am asking.
  10. Now that is thinking outside the box Glenn.. Next B&B, I'm trying this.

    Horizontal bands on siding

    Called belly bands here too.. Its pretty simple BnC. Pick the outer edge of you build, then select "Make Room Molding Polyline" The height is just what it means, the height you want this band.> OK > The whole area will highlight > Open the object> from there you can build your band with the style you like. Can build on top of others also, to get the stacked look. I use this method also for brick ledges..

    double column railing

    That's a good idea Joey.. That's what I ended up doing.. ended up looking great.. IMO Thanks guys for the direction.

    double column railing

    That did it.. unchecked full wall width of rails. Watching your Railing - Part 2, to see if it gave me the fix.

    double column railing

    Yes they do. I made a sample deck off to the side. The first problem going with a larger sq. column, is it hangs off the edge of the deck, if you use the dbx. So I made my newels 0" in size... placed the symbols of columns. I cut the wall, and where I don't want railing is an invisible wall. How do I get the rails to sit back? If I can figure this out, I should be ok.. just a tedious process.
