several dumb questions

Recommended Posts

I've got a few nagging problems that I cant seem to figure out.

 

First, whenever I switch to an overview (for example full ortho overview), the model is off the screen and sometimes its hard to find. When I do find it the orbit is messed up and I have to use the focus on object function before It is usable. I suspect I have an object out in space somewhere that is throwing off the extents but I have been unable to find anything. Any tips on how to fix this?

 

Second, my cursor is stuck showing the build terrain icon next to the mouse pointer. This stays on despite the fact that Im not building terrain. Choosing another tool does not change it.. seems kind of buggy but its most likely user error.

 

Lastly I have my roof structure set to 2X12 joists. But when I cut a section the roof thickness is less than 11.25". Some of the roofs are correct and some are not. Is there some other setting that would be affecting this? In framing overview I can see that the bottom of the joists are cut out as if its trimming to something.

 

I have attached the model in case someone wants to take a look. The roof depth problem is over the master bedroom.

 

Thanks a bunch guys and girls!

 You have an object in the hinterlands.  Turn all layers on,  then do a select all for each  level,  you will find that you have something located in Mumbai.  Delete that object and then the overview camera will behave.

I bet you need to rebuild framing.  I ALWAYS HAVE AUTO FRAMING ON.

I went back to a previous version and my floor heights are good. As soon as I try to build floor framing my heights jump. Any ideas? I guess I have learned that auto framing needs to be kept on. I thought I was keeping it simple by turning it off until I needed it. Dohh!

If you don't post a  plan,  I ain't guessing and I doubt there are too many others who will spend their valuable time guessing to help you solve your problem.  Please post your current plan.

Go to 3D View Defaults Dialog, there are several ways to get there.
 
Check the box at Auto Rebuild Terrain to get rid of that symbol.
 
It means something in the terrain was changed but terrain has not been rebuilt is all.

I was able to get rid of the cursor issue. I had to go choose build terrain, then choose something else. Thanks!

I'm still baffled why my floor elevations jump when I try to build the floor framing. If anyone wants to take a look, open the file in post#1, take a look at an ortho overview, then build the floor framing and watch what happens

You have the terrain elevation data out of wack and chief is getting very confuse it cause weird problems your elevation lines crossing elevation regions they can not cross must be seperate give that a try it is working so much better after i fixed that

Okay, I did notice that and fixed it by deleting the two terrain countour lines, thanks. Im still getting the same problem though.. floor heights jump when building floor framing and headers show up in the middle of windows.

have you checked build wall framing or checked auto build as it seems to me that you might have turned the layer layer on but not told cheif build it as i am not getting the problem here with your headers
