Auto-Generated Room Base Moldings

Recommended Posts

Working on a recent basement remodel project I have come to notice something kind of peculiar.  Whenever you have a pony wall and then a furred wall on the inside of that, the default auto-generated room base molding follows the edge of the pony wall instead of the furred wall.  When the outer wall is a single wall as opposed to a pony wall, the the default auto-generated room base molding follows the edge of the furred wall.  Notice whether you have a half height furred wall or full height furred wall has no affect on the room molding.  The pony wall / furred wall combination causes the quirk.  See the pictures below...

I just ran in to this problem as well. I called in and support told me to shoot a cross section/elevation, then use a 3d moulding polyline, draw above where you want it apply the moulding you want then drop it in place. It worked for me, good luck!

      I need to calculate room square footages to give to our supplier to order flooring. I noticed when room areas are displayed along with the room labels, it is not calculated to the interior of the walls. Walls seem to be included, and some rooms seem to be different than others on how the calculation is done. Is there a way to adjust how these room calculations are done? Or do you have other advice on how to get this information for flooring square footages? The only options I have come up with so far are drawing a bunch of polylines in all the rooms or doing the math with the dimensions, and I was hoping for something easier. 
      Thank you

      Gang, I apologize in advance if this was already addressed here, but I couldn't find it.
      Often, I am asked to build an addition on a deck-style foundation.  Is there a simple way to do this that doesn't take forever?  I can manipulate the software to eventually do what I want, but there has to be an easier way!

      I have a basement with a safe room. The ceiling is 10' high in the basement. I only want to drop the ceiling in the safe room that is in the basement down to 8' and keep the basement ceiling at 10'. Seems every time I try to do this it messes with the foundation and raises it. Not finding any videos on this. Or is it just as simple to turn a soffit into a ceiling???
      There has to be a simple step by step solution to this.

      I cannot get this shelf ceiling to behave. I have tried everything I can think of. The bathroom itself is vaulted. There is a water closet that also has a shelf ceiling but that one is perfect. I tried to match every parameter of that room to this one but nothing works. I have two ceilings to make things worse!!! ALso that horizontal band between the lower and upper walls just appeared as well!!! HELP ME PLEASE!!! Thanks.

      I am using Chief Architecture x8 Interior version.
      I want to find out if I can create Block of a simple room. Room has 4 walls, door, window.
      As soon as I select wall, I don't get "Add to library option"
      If above is not possible, is there any work-around ?
      Problem, I am trying to solve is - I want to start a project with a room which has walls, doors, window, & may be few other objects which will get re-used every-time.
      I want to drag & drop this room object & then I will customize this room block as per requirement.
