No ceiling showing

Recommended Posts

Not sure as to why my ceilings are not showing up. I've tried adjusting, very confusing.  Room specs box is checked and says "ceiling above". Ceiling defaults are there. "Structure" in room spec shows a pic of the ceiling heights. 

I am attaching my plan in a zip file because of it's size.

No ceiling material  = no ceiling.

Good evening,

 

In the room specification a material is needed.  I added drywall to your model as shown in the attached specification db.  Using or reviewing one of CA's  templates will help you understand the specifications.

By default, the setting shown by others are there. You must have manually changed it at one time.

      Hello, is there a way to display the ceiling elevation (height) on plan view, as we typically show them on architectural drawings?

      Hello, Is it possible to create a ceiling assembly schedule in CA? I could not find one, nor an option to assign to a custom schedule. Any tips?

      can anyone explain how and help me enclose between this new gable roof and ceiling. Also looking toward house thru gable closing in with Hardi-siding. The old roof is showing thru and something else when I do a rendering (see attached). Need to look good for a client in 3 D. They are adding a roof over existing 10' x 20' patio. 
       
      thank you if you can help.

      Hello everyone,
      In my current project, a client asks for a groin vault, something like that. 
      I've looked through the forum but I can't find anything about this.
       
      How is it possible to do with Chief? 
       I would be very grateful for a video.

      Thanks in advance

      Hi.
      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.
