Show light fixtures on first floor

Recommended Posts

I have a plan with sloped ceilings and using recessed lights, if I put them on the first floor they go to the invisible ceiling so I need to put them on the second floor for them to match the ceiling. The problem is that I want them to show on the first floor not the second floor on my electrical plan. I assume there is a way to do this. I have attached picture.

Use a ref set.  Put the light on a unique layer and then turn that layer on in your ref set.

I'm a little curious why you need to have your ceiling on the second floor.

Michael, I have a second floor on part of the house. In the Kitchen I have "no ceiling" checked but it still keeps that invisible ceiling at 8' like the rest of the first floor. Then on the second floor this area is set to open below.

      We're trying to figure out how to change the angle of pendent lights on vaulted ceilings. When we create the ceiling angle, the lights follow and aren't angled properly. How do we change the lights so they go vertical rather than at a tilt?

      Hi Everyone, 
       
      I'm new to Chief Architect and I was wondering if there were any symbols in the library (2D or 3D) that represents a 2'x4' recessed light fixture.  For a suspended ceiling in an office building.   I haven't been able to find anything close to that.  Thanks in advance for the assistance!

      How do I place a flood light on a exterior column or exterior soffit? Aalso placing a electrical outlet on a column. I have made a small retangle wall in past to do it. 
      Any suggestion? this is something cheiv developers need to work on.
      It says walls or cabinets! Ther should be a simple solution.
