I have a problem that I am hoping to get some feedback on Re: soffits. I believe to be a X11 issue. In my plan, i created open rafters first on attic level with no finished ceiling, the soffits would "glow" with emission. I am a part of Chief Tutor.com so I sent .plan to him to get feedback. He took the file, put the soffit rafters on the first level and it fixed the problem on his computer. However, when i did what he instructed on my own software, the soffits would still glow in physically based render with "improve lighting quality" checked, and they are downright black when the improve lighting is not checked. He informed me it was likely an X11 issue because he was able to resolve in the newest version. Is there a work around I can do for this? I am contracted out through a small construction company and they may not be upgrading to new version; So a work around would be ideal. Thank you. See attached files for images of problem.
OK...I've been messing around with the "Tray Ceiling" tool in X12. Cannot for the life of me figure out how to create a "nested" tray ceiling. In the help file it shows to unique icons...one for a "tray"...and one for a "nested tray". I cannot find where this "nested" tray menu or icon exists.
Is the nested ceiling shown below in Example B possible with the Nested Tray Ceiling tool? Thanks!
I am trying to draw suspended ceilings for my office area and having a problem with the suspended ceiling not starting a new grid alignment between some offices in 3D view. I want each office to have it own ceiling grid layout so I don't end up with small edges and misaligned ceiling tile and lights. It works between some rooms but not others. Here is what I do...I use "Draw Line" to layout my ceiling pattern, then I place my recessed lights where I want them, I go into "Room Specifications" -> "Materials" -> "Ceiling Finish" and select "Square Ceiling Tile." After all that, I go to camera view...I then use "Adjust Material Definition" and select the ceiling. On the "Pattern" tab and the "Texture" tabs I change the "Horizontal Offset" and "Vertical Offset" to match the lights. In some cases this works fine and other times the Horizontal Offset and the Vertical Offset don't stop and the interior walls and they adjust the ceiling on the other side of the wall (in the next office.) I can't figure out what I am doing differently that causes it to work properly some times and not others. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, David-R
