Someone else is doing the structural plans. I've only been asked to produce an outside view of what it will look like based on the plans and elevations. I've already been told that the building will change from what I have now.

If structure doesn't matter you can set the exterior walls to balloon through ceiling above, at least that works on a simple box in X9-I had more luck NOT doing all the exterior walls at once for some odd reason and I did not try just changing the default structure. Anyway, worth a shot.

I'd have to try it.  I was relaying on the presence of a 2nd floor to locate window positions ("distance of top from floor" in the dialog box) and doors ("Floor to bottom" in the dialog box).

It has two floors

      Has anyone else experienced a frozen screen when closing an elevation view? Also, some options in various dialog boxes will not open; mainly labels. I've tried the obvious, closing, restarting etc. Everyhting is up-to-date, and I've made no changes to my system. This problem shows up on every file, not just a single plan.
      I've got an open ticket with support, but deadlines are looming....

      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 have been having some issues with the Wall Elevation View not displaying certain objects that are in my scene. Are there settings that I have that are not turned on or off? Again, still new to this, so I am sorry if this question has already been asked and answered.
      I was trying to follow one of the Bathroom Webinar's and their Wall Elevation looks perfect. Mine is missing the mirrors, hand soap containers, and flowers. How can I fix this issue?
      Thank you for all of your help!

      Hi, I need to render a kitchen and a master bath, however my renderings turn out really "fake". It doesn't look as real as I want it to be. the camera view always stretches the walls and my doors and windows look stretched. Is there a setting that I can do to create the camera views more realistic? Seems like I tried everything, but haven't figured it out yet.
      Also, any rendering tips that make it look more realistic?
      The two camera views, do you notice how the refrigerator is stretched out and the fireplace wall as well? Also, do you see the white line where the ceiling breaks with the wall, how do I get rid of that? The ray traces - the lighting is too bright, I tried to lower the  intensity, but it would either remove the light completely, or still be as bright. And the materials look bleh, maybe I am applying the materials the wrong way? I know its fuzzy, I turned off ray trace earlier. I didn't like how it was turning out.

      I've been working on a project and all was going well with the ray trace renders. Left the computer to do a couple more overnight and all of them turned out very grainy and black and white, like the one in the attached image. I have tried to re render many times this morning. I have updated chief X9 to the most recent version, closed out and reopened the program and have retstarted my computer (macbook pro), but still having this issue. Any ideas on how I can correct this? Thanks so much
