I am just doing a 3D rendering of a bldg. under construction. it is 3 levels with 4 level attic (8ft clg where stair landing is) with stair well to bacony.

When  I call out attic at 4th level it lowers level 3 ceiling (9 ft ht), 2nd level (10 ft), first level 9 ft. . I just mainly have drawin exterior walls with opening to be able 

to design at 3D rendeing. 8 /12 roof pitch over 3rd level masteer bedroom area for atttic. Then 4th level 8 ft ceiling attic going to bacony where ac unit will go with concrete waterproof floor. 

I have 5 of these rendering to do and wanted to see how long one will take before signing agreement with client. tomorrow. 

Any help would be apprectiated .

If I understand correctly, it is because your "open to below" room at the floor 3 has the wrong ceiling (B) value: 358 5/8", and it should be 377 3/8" - "Open to below rooms" should be adjusted by Floor Structure (L) value +18 3/4".

      The red arrows point to the problem area.
      The outside wall and interior wall at the closet intersect with the valley where the two roof planes intersect.
      The interior of the room creates an attic wall (with exterior siding) above the closet (NOTE: Ceiling was removed to get image)
      The plan view shows where the roof planes intersect at the valley. I have the same problem on the other side of the house because it is symmetrical.
      The plan is too large (65MB) but here is the model (
      Any suggestion on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

      I would like to add the paint sample attached (med_sprinkle) and use it on the garage floor but each time I create the material it comes out as tiled. In addition, when it is solid its massive instead of regular size (see garage pic). Any suggestions/tips would be most grateful. Thanks.

      I'm using X11 premier on a mac -- I have an exterior garage wall (with a centered garage door) and a gable end -- I'd like to split the attic wall of the gable end into 3 parts -- the central region above the garage door, and the left and right, to have a different material above the garage door.

      I have Default Settings > Roof > Auto Rebuild Roof set to Off
      I have Default Settings > Framing > Automatically Build Floor and Ceiling Framing Off on all framing types.
      I have Default Settings > Walls > General Walls > Auto Rebuild Attic Walls set to Off

      If I delete the roof and ceiling planes with Build > Roof > Delete [X] and then use the Build > Roof > Build Roof ... dialog to rebuild the roof and attic from scratch -- I leave the Auto Rebuild Roofs set to Off, to be clear -- and then edit the resulting gable roof on the attic layer, I can split it twice to produce the three separate wall sections, but once I change the exterior material on any of the sections, the three wall segments get replaced with a single wall again.  The new wall has my selected material, but that does me no good as I need the distinct secgments.

      Anyone know what setting do I need to turn off to maintain the manually edited gable end?  Or is this a mac bug?

      Or, barring that, does anyone know what approach will let me give the desired finish detail (attached a pic of a freehand elevation)?

      I wonder why my second floor loft flooring is sticking through the roof and can be seen on the outside of the building?

      I accidentally deleted the floor surface from my layout of a building. It appears that the top floor surface is missing leaving the subfloor. I don't know how to add a new floor surface to the subfloor (walls are built and floor plan is otherwise complete).
