  1. Levis & Chopsaw...................Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Yes, those were the threads I was looking for. The one problem I find with this solution, unless I'm doing something wrong, is that you get the "almost" correct look for garage doors, but for a walk-in door the exterior casing extends to the bottom of the concrete floor finish. On the garage door I get a thin layer of the jamb across the boot of the garage door on top of the cement. I guess we just "live with it" and hope that someday CA will fix this. Have a great day.
  2. A while back I read a thread explaining how to make CA show the garage floor extend out under the garage door to the exterior side of the block wall. I can't locate that thread. Can someone "guide " me to it's location. Many thanks.
  3. Are all the roof pitches the same? If they aren't you will have to adjust the fascia and sub fascia sizes on one of the pitches so they all line up correctly.
  4. Glenn.....................Thanks for that reminder. The "little guy" upstairs between my ears just slapped me saying "I KNEW THAT!!". Can I blame it on being an old fart? Have a great day.
  5. To All........................I ended up going back to an earlier version of the project where the walls showed correctly and copied the two "problem" walls forward to my final version and they show as they should. I still am not sure what the problem is/was (something with the walls themselves), but due to my time restraints I had to move on. If at some point in the near future the problem shows up on this plan or another I'll post the plan. Problems like this can be so frustrating and time consuming at times. Thanks to all for your advice and taking your time to help me out. Have a great day.
  6. Robert........................Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. I had to see a client and just got back. To answer your question-----------yes, they are both checked.
  7. I was in the process of making some renderings for a client on a design remodel project when I noticed a couple of walls with the siding not going to the foundation. Earlier in the project they were fine. It's only on two exterior walls of many. I've compared the problem walls with ones that are correct and I can't find the problem or the "cure". The problem walls show the rim joist and sills. Just not the siding going to the foundation. On the other side of the house the problem wall is divided up with three different rooms and the end room's exterior wall going away from the corner is acting as it should (WALL2 attachment). This, I think, is telling me it's not somehow a "room problem". I'm sure this subject has been brought up before, but I can't find the thread with a search (as of yet). I'm not adding the plan at this time because it's very large, so I'm hoping it's something simple I'm overlooking. As always, all help is much appreciated.
  8. Eric.................Thank you. That "fixed" the problem. Did you remember this "fix" from memory or did you find it in a search? If from a search, what wording for the search did you use? I had no luck in my search. If this is an "old bug" then there is no need for reporting? Thanks again and have a great day.
  9. I'm attempting to install recessed lighting on the first floor ceiling of a balcony above. I've tried labeling the rooms and walls above differently in hopes to fix my "problem", but so far I haven't found a fix. I'm not sure at this point if it's something I'm doing wrong or if it is a CA bug. I simplified the plan and CA reacts the same. When I install a recessed light in the ceiling everything is as it should be, but if I move the light to where there is a wall above, covering more than half the recessed light below, CA installs the light in the cathedral ceiling above on the second floor. I don't ever remember having a problem like this before, but I might have been just lucky over the years. I'm supplying the simplified plan along with .jpgs showing what I'm referring too. Is this a bug or me? Of course, as always, any and all help will be much appreciated. ROBBINS SAMPLE.zip
  10. Michael..................Thank you. Have a great day.
  11. I have a pergola that I would like to mount wall sconces on the post. Is there a work around or procedure to do this since wall sconces only attach to walls?
  12. Eric........................Thanks. I just found that thread with a search. I was using "recess lighting in soffit" for my search and wasn't coming up with anything. After rewording my search question the thread you pointed out came up. Thanks again and have a great day.
  13. I'm trying to install recessed lighting in my level soffit overhangs, but the recessed lights slope with the angle of the roof. I've tried to locate somewhere to override the angle but can't find anything. Is there somewhere or a work around to make the light level? Thanks in advance for any help.
  14. Mick and Mark ..................... Sorry for not replying before this. I've been tied up with some other projects not related to CA projects. Thanks for the "heads up". I've had a slow start using PBR. It can be very frustrating and time consuming for me. I'll play around with your suggestions and let you know how they turn out. Have a great day.
  15. Is there a place to adjust the background color when using the Physically Based camera view? All I seem to get is a dull grey background. I've tried doing searches on the subject, but I've come up with nothing.
