Here I am trying to cut section of a deck. (Image attached). Unfortunately garage wall is in line with the deck edge. (plan view image attached) which I don't want to see in my section view. Is there a way I can hide or clip what I want to see? Garage wall is hiding the stair behind.
Does anyone know, if you can take the automatic cross-section. From DBL click on your room, on the right side of your screen and save it to your plan?
I have attached an image below. I have tried snipping or print screen, but I'm looking for a chief alternative. I want to be able to take this as a cad detail section and have it to scale in my plan.
Hi. Whenever I create a "cad detail from view" from a cross-section, I end up with double lines in the cad detail from view drawing. When I go to erase a line in the drawing, there is another line underneath so I have to erase the same line twice to eliminate it. Any suggestions as to why this is happening and how to correct it? Any input is most appreciated. I am using the current build of X9 and running it on my iMac. Thank you kindly.
I am a beginner using Chief X8 and its got me stumped. The plan I am working on is a rambler with a basement and 18" floor trusses. When I add a floor truss to the plan and open a cross section the truss displays at the wrong height. The top of the truss is flush with the top of the subfloor plywood and there is a gap between the bottom of the truss and the drywall. If I change the truss to an I joist it displays at the correct height. What am I missing?
I am trying to create a CAD cross section of the structure for the plan drawings. I was able to locate the how-to article in the knowledge base of how to supposedly do this, however, when I do a "backflipped cross section I get a blank screen even with every layer turned on. And when I do a regular cross section my foundation and footings don't show up (even with layer turned on). Attached an example of what I'm essentially trying to create (courtesy of CA's knowledge base). As well as the closest I've gotten my cross-section view to appear to, which also shows the footing/foundation issue I'm describing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
