  1. Hi Basketballman We are a Design Build firm in, Massachusetts. We use CA extensively, Version 15. I am looking for a skilled CA person to help with permit and construction drafting. We develop the concepts so that’s not really part of it, and for the most part we don’t need heavy-duty graphics, video walkthrough, etc. since by the time the project gets to you it’s already sold. That said, if one of us is struggling with a particular model we’d like to have someone we can reach out to for help. I do use the forums which are great, but I don’t always have the time to figure stuff out for myself. Is this something you might be interested in? Please let me know. Thanks, George I can be reached by cell at 508-776-1460.
  2. Got it, thanks. I stopped at 'fir framing', missed the 'type' option below. appreciate it.
  3. Good idea. Here's the zipped file. I did re-build the framing prior to my question to no avail. thanks, Skip Angel - 3.0 -
  4. Hi All, For some reason my plans are showing I joists where I want lumber joists showing. Everywhere I look in preferences, etc., lumber is the listed. I can't figure why this is. Seems i've had this issue before but have been able to figure it out but can't remember how. Thanks for any suggestions. Skip X15
  5. Good Evening, I am moving an existing building on a lot. I have fully developed the existing terrain (it's slopes), and have also fully developed the existing structure. The project now involves literally picking up structure and relocating it on the lot. QUESTION - is it better to selected the structure and move it on the lot (like we do in real life), or am i better off shifting the terrain under the building. For this exercise I've done it both ways, and while both are easy tasks and seem to work without issue, I am getting slightly different results in how the slope lot 'hits' the building. The 'Subfloor above terrain' dimension isn't changing in the dialogue box. Any thoughts? thanks, Skip X14
  6. Hi All, Is it possibe to copy terrain from one plan to another? Along with elevation data, features, etc.? thanks Skip
  7. Hi, Is there a simple (ie, automatic) method of creating an open stair case that has a low curb in liue of open end treads? The ballusters would to to the top of the sloped curb rather than the stair treads themselves. In the image below I cut & shaped the wall but I imagine there's a better approach that would show it correctly, including the ballusters, railing and newel. thanks in advance, Skip Marcille -
  8. Final solution - Eric had it. Set ceiling height to default height. easy & fixed. thank you Eric, Ryan and Mick - appreciate the help. George
  9. Thanks for all the suggestions. I haven't tried them yet but I'm optimistic they'll work. Mick, Thanks for the heads up on software. We do have the SSA but we're still on 13 here because I have 4 licenses/users and not all our computers can handle the upgrade yet. We'll get there. Best, George
  10. Thanks, but no luck. I had tried editing the wall layers but that didn't work. I also tried extending my intended wall on the 2nd floor, but in plan, when selected it shows as one continous wall. I also tried manipulating it in different ways in elevation but it keeps re-generating as an auto wall. I can delete it but the program won't allow me to maually extend/alter the the adjacent or below wall to fill in the hole. There must be something I'm missing.
  11. Hi All, I've been tolerating this for a long time since it's a minor annoyance but I'd love to resolve it. On the gable end of this house, like all others I draw, there is a line that shows that aligns with the interior knee wall, which separates the living area from the attic/eve space. I don't know why this line appears. thoughts? The plan is uploaded as well, thanks & Merry Christmas! Skip 734900330_Marcille-Existing.plan
  12. Thanks David, I really appreciate it! I have no idea how that drywall got on the exterior wall; I didn't eye drop anything. Nevertheless, you figured it out and I am grateful. Hope you're well. Best, George
  13. Good Morning I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why these two exterior walls aren't showing correctly. I even removed that lower foundation section w/ the slab thinking maybe that was confusing the program ... no luck. I'm sure it's something incredible simple. File attached for anyone who miight be able to help. Thank you, Skip X13 Marcille - Existing.plan
