  1. Yes I caught that after I uploaded the file and corrected that and ran plan check with no success.
  2. Sorry Doug I was unclear, it's the Living Area. It's only displayed on the first floor. My only fix was to at a text macro to calculate it. Thanks for you time.
  3. yeah I did it on each floor I was having the issue with no luck. I read someone else had my same luck with it not working.
  4. I found the frustration of others through the search. Plan check did not solve the problem. I ended up using a text macro to solve it. Weird why it appears to be happening within the past few months. Thanks
  5. Any ideas why square footage is only being displayed on the first floor and not the basement and second? Chase Full Foundation.plan
  6. Thanks Ryan, I have no idea how that happened. Yeah that's how build here, we build w/ 2x6 walls and ladder frame the end joists to carry the weight. The siding overlaps the brick below.
  7. Any clue on why my brick to grade is not displaying on my exterior views? Blake Full Basement.plan
  8. Toggle textures that was it, never knew! Thanks
  9. Thanks guys, the check mark for floor supplied... was it. I figured out the pony wall thing too. One other thing I've noticed from on of the Chief updates is that the perspective full overview standard view has a lot less detail shown. i have to do a rendering to get a half decent pic. Mick, I see your overview looks good. Is that a render? I have attached my view. Is there a setting I changed?
  10. That didn't work for me. When I tried to input your numbers, it would make others change and that's the reason it feels like I'm chasing my tail. It won't let me keep all of the inputs without changing ones I just put in. Also, your numbers aren't what I am trying to do. The garage floor should be on top of the 2' garage stem wall. I have attached the detail.
  11. I'm chasing my tail on trying to get my model to build they way I want it. I have attached the plan with a CAD "wall detail" on how I would like it to build. One of the problems I have when I try to get the garage floor to be on top of the stem wall, it says it has a negative room value. I also for some reason the material for the lower pony wall is being put way below grade. I can not figure it out and any help would be much appreciated! Mike Weston Full Basement.plan
  12. Thank you both for bringing that to my attention. I amazes me how the hell you guys ever figure those out. It such a small tweak that matters in the end. I've never had a problem with basement walls like that before. P.S. Michael, I love the Macro you made for me. It works flawlessly with my total station!!!!!! Thanks, Mike
  13. I thought that was it but I changed all of those to the default and still no luck. I did a cross section and then a story pole dimension and its coming up with the first measurement as 6 1/2". That's not correct as its only 4" concrete but I guessing that is my problem because there's my 2 1/2" difference. Just can't figure it out.
  14. I'm pulling my hair out on why this is not dimensioning out correctly. I have in the defaults 10' poured foundation, 10" 1st floor assembly, 9'-1 1/8" 1st floor, 10" 2nd floor assembly and 8'-1 1/8" 2nd floor. Any clue why the basement is coming up 2 1/2" bigger?! Thanks, Mike 09022020.plan
  15. I recently bought a robotic total station to stake my homes. I clicked on the "Plan Footprint" to get my foundation footprint and exported that to both a dxf and a dwg file to import into my data collector but it says that it does not have any x,y or z information. Does anyone have experience with what I am trying to do or knows how? I can manually input the points or corners of the house into my data collector but that is redundant and could lead to errors. Thanks, Mike
