  1. The convention here (northeast US) is to align framing and foundation with the sheathing and siding overhanging.
  2. I've made a stream in the past with the sidewalk object. Just change the material.
  3. Sometimes you can skip the "Cad Detail from View" step by moving your cross section camera so that it cuts through the object you want tot snap to.
  4. Structure is not necessarily your biggest concern here.
  5. Sounds like someone needs an engineer and possibly a copy of ADAAG
  6. You may need to create custom materials if the ones you want aren't in the library. (ie the T-Stud or Rockwool) Steve has you covered on the strapping. Sometimes I just use "Opening (No Material)" for a rainscreen I simulate Zip-R with the OSB material and the Insulation Foam material.

  12. Use the macro %date.short%
  13. Thanks Steve ! (face palm) I wont mention all the time I spent avoiding obvious solutions.
  14. OK, I'm stumped here. I've created a lowered floor. I would swear in the past that the room divider automatically provided the finish between floor platforms, but I can't figure out how to make it generate. The checkbox for "Generate between flor platforms" is selected. Any ideas how the automate the finish between floor platforms? Floor Platform
  15. I upgraded immediately and never had an issue with X12 crashing.
