Baseboard showing up on exterior elevations

Recommended Posts

I am working on a very complex remodel with several different levels on it and I am having trouble setting floor levels.  In one situation, I may have changed and exterior wall height and now my interior baseboards are showing on my exterior elevations. What you are looking at is an upper level floor with a garage below and the baseboards/flooring are showing in the upper floor on the exterior elevations.  For the life of me I cannot firgure it out and I know that there is a CA expert here that can help.

 

Thanks,

Try Rebuild Walls/Floors/ Ceilings Framing under the Build Menu

 

I wish it was that easy.  I tried that already.

You might try setting the room type to undefined and see if you can reset the baseboard definition.

Never seen that one before, are you sure it's a baseboard and not a floor?

It looks like the baseboards are associated to the floor level of the room. Maybe go back and double check to see if the baseboards in that room have an offset value, or if in the structure settings of that room you have something strange going on with respect to the floor height.

I think it would be a good challenge to see who can get baseboards to show like that. Sorry I'm no help - never seen it.

I have basically fixed it, as I had to go to an exterior elevation and adjust the walls on the upper and lower floor.  I am still a bit confused sometimes as to floor levels and adjusting the walls/foundation in elevation mode.  As with anything there is always a learning curve.

      I'm looking to make my retaing wall larger than the terrain heights.
      In the instructions in this page, https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-00652/changing-the-height-of-a-retaining-wall.html
      I did all the steps, but the last point. In section/elevation, when I try to click the retaining walls, nothing happens. I don't get boxes or any selection at all.
      What is happening that I can't make this selection?
      I want to make my wall 6" above the grade/terrain elevation, and I want to drop the foundation of the wall by 24". How do I do this?
       
      Please assist.
      Thank you.

      Happy Holidays everyone.
       
      I have a plan where I have a few places I need an exterior wall above a roof section, but a railing, or in one case, no wall below.  Is there a way to do this in Chief Architect X11?  The one opening in my screen shot shows some exterior molding, but no wall.  On the one that has the railing below it, I tried the lower wall type if split by roof, but I couldn't get it to show as a wall above and a railing below.  It was either only a railing or all wall.

      Hi all. I'm fairly new to the software and have only been using it since October. I have a client who wants a wood framed chimney extruding from the middle of the roof up from the gas fireplace. I've tried a bunch of different options to make this work but can't figure it out. Can someone please tell me how to draw walls on top of the roof?
       
      Thank you!

      Anybody have any idea whats going on with the intersections of these deck railings and the exterior walls? Cant get the original default siding to go away at the intersection. Have tried editing default material and making adjustments with the wall layer extents tool.
