  1. Thank You so much, I never thought to look at the number of lights turned on for Full Overview. Full Camera my default is 100
  2. This is in X15, I've been using CA since version '97. In the 3D Physically Based rendering, the one recessed over the single garage door and the far right , barely show up. All the others look as I would expect. I've tried several adjustments to the Light Data, I also tried installing a ceiling plane under the soffit. I just can't figure it out. I've attached the Zipped plan. I appreciate your help. RWS149K zip.zip
  3. 1500 samples is very good. 2500 is excellent. It depends on the speed of your video card.
  4. I have a one year old Liquid Cooled MSI gaming computer with NVIDIA 3080ti video card. It was overheating and shutting down running X14. I removed the Liquid Cooled and installed all fan based cooling. I haven't had a problem since then.
  5. I agree, I'm having a terrible time finding the simple things that I use everyday.
  6. I don't do panel schedules in CA. They are not required for permits. I make them when I wire the panels.
  7. I use Good Sync which is software only. It backs up my entire Documents folder plus several otter Folders like X15 Data and Libraries. It also backs up thousands of photos and hours of video., including QuickBooks and all my invoices It can backup from several internal or external drives on the computer. It backs this all up to My Cloud Expert Series EX2 Ultra containing two - 6TB solid state drives. The second 6TB drive mirrors the first one using Raid 1. With the My Cloud, I can open any of theses files on my iPhone using the My Cloud app. I can also open them on any internet connected computer. This may sound confusing but once it's setup, it's easy to backup. Files are backed up to two SSD drives in the My cloud. So if the computer fails, I have two copies
  8. Creating Electrical schedules requiring AFCI breakers can cause problems. The NEC, National Electric Code, gives the final decisions to the "Authority Having Jurisdiction"which is the local Electrical Inspector. Different States and local Municipalities have adapted different version of the most recent code. Some are up to date, some use the code from three years ago and some haven't updated for six years. Some of the posted schedules in the this thread would not pass the most current version of the NEC. An example locally is, one inspector requires kitchen refrigerators to be AFCI/GFCI protected without exception. Another local inspector uses common sense and says "No, It's going to trip and ruin all the food, then ice is going to melt and cause water damage"
  9. I haven't used it long enough to really test it.. From the few hours I've use it, I had no problems.
  10. Download Complete. X15 Open and running. Testing RTRT now
  11. I was a loyal Mac user since 2004. I alway owned Mac Pro towers snd the recent trash can. I have a new MacBook Pro. Last year I bought a PC Desktop for X14 and QuickBooks. The reason was, Physically Based Rendering (PBR). I have X14 on both the PC and Mac. I sign out and switch when I want to, but mostly use the PC. The PC is MSI Aegis RS with NVIDIA 3080Ti video card and 32GB RAM, Two 2TB NVMe SSD"s It's very fast for PBR.
