    Computer Speed Question

    I've been thinking of making use of the M.2 SSD that's available, for what I understand, it's right in the bus and the read/write is much faster. I also edit videos and that is a resource hog. The page Dermot shared has a lot of good information. Thank you for that.

    Computer Speed Question

    Typo Yes . . . 3.6 and not 9.6. One thing I did notice, if I have numerous cameras open, that seems to slow things down. No lights on (yet). No 3D plants. (yet) Thanks everybody. Plenty of advice and things to check here. When I chose this machine I chose not to get cheap here. This machine is very popular with the 3D gamers for its "Speed". That was about 3 years ago and you know how it goes. Six months later it was yesterday's top of the line computer. Hard Drive is: Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive I've been thinking of calling my Computer Nerd and clone my HD to a SDD if he would agree that would be a good thing.

    Computer Speed Question

    I've notice as my project and CA Plan File grows, my computer seems to slow down. I have a MSI MAG Z3990M Mortar i9-9900K CPU @9.60GHz with 32GB RAM. GPU is a GeForce NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti. I've order a 64GB RAM Upgrade kit hoping to speed things up a little. My CA.PLAN file is now at 25MB. Example, when editing a roof, when I click on a roof edge it takes a few seconds for it to select the edge. Then after the edit, a few seconds for it to complete the edit. It's aggravating waiting on it.

    Need help drawing a concrete slab the way I need it.

    I was hoping for some more insight on the line between the Garage and the House and to get it to automatically locate in the correct location. Actually, if I take the camera tool and snap a photo of that wall, the resulting image has the drop in the slab at the correct location. But, on my foundation plan it is not in the correct location. If only I could explode the foundation drawing then edit it using CAD lines that would work. Call me nuts, but I made a layer called "CAD, White Out" that has a color of White and a line thickness of 55. I actually White Out the unwanted lines then redraw them with "CAD, Foundation". Right now . . . . Whatever Works.

    Need help drawing a concrete slab the way I need it.

    Actually by Kbird1's post, I was able to create and save a "Saved Plan View" that took care of the hatching and shading and footing issue. My only issue now is getting the step from the house to garage to locate in the correct place. It's a work around but defeats the Auto-Rebuild function. I clicked on the foundation wall between the house and garage. Broke (#3 on keyboard) the wall right at the spot where the rear garage wall and the front garage wall met it. Then clicked on the remaining section and moved it to the left 5 1/2" so the line was in the correct location. But I really don't like doing it that way for every time I need to rebuild the foundation, I have to delete what I have and do all this over again. Tomorrow I just might forward this to the Code Wizards at CA and I'm sure they will have the answer.

    Good Question. Most of the time the perimeter wall around the Garage is 2x4, then the "Curb" would be 3 1/2". Sometimes the perimeter wall around the Garage is 2x6, especially when we have several floors above or I have plumbing coming down those walls, then the Curb would be 5 1/2".

    Thanks KBird, I watched a vid about that sort of thing. I will study up on that. Jerry K.

    Need help drawing a concrete slab the way I need it.

    Hey Guys! A lot of great progress. If I ever run into you at a CA event remind me I owe you an Adult Beverage. Thank you! There are still a few minor issues. When I Turn Off the "Walls, Layers" I lose the hatching on the Floor Plan. Is there a workaround for this? More importantly, the line that depicts the drop in the slab from the house floor is in the wrong location. See Screen Shots. How can we adjust it so the line shows where I have it drawn in red?

  9. Greetings everybody. I've been trying to figure out the settings so my Slab Foundations would come out the way I need for them to. Attached are a couple of screen shots and an example plan I quickly drawn up. First, all I want are the lines of the foundation surface only. No footing or hatching to show. Also, around the garage walls, if I use 2x6 stud wall, aka 2x6 Brick wall, I want the (what I call the "Curb") to be the same width of the stud wall above it or in this case 5 1/2". If I have a 2x4 Stud with Brick Wall then a 3 1/2" curb. Most appreciate of any suggestions and what I need to do. Jerry K. garage problem.zip

    That helps. Thank you very much. (When I'm watching videos, my wifey thinks I'm playing and not working).

    Where can I find tutorials on flat roofs? Working on a Modern/Contemporary Design. Here is an image my client sent to me:
