Cannot get custom counter tops to go over laundry machines

Recommended Posts

Hello all, fairly new user, and I have searched through the videos and forum threads to see if my problem already exists... no luck on how to fix this so far. I cannot get my counters to sit over my machines in the plan, only under them. I have changed floor to counter heights in the dialog box and tried the "view draw order edit tools" toggle for all items separately. Can anyone let me know what I'm doing wrong? I've attached a view. As you can see, the counter is running under everything. Thanking you in advance!

They are correct in a camera view but not in plan?

Yes, I can see it in camera view, on top of the machines, but not in plan. Why?

(thanks for answering so fast!)

Here I've used the Draw Order tools to move the appliance back.

Also a good idea to fill out your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

Sounds to me like you just aren't using the View Draw Order edit tools quite right.  Post the plan for a quicker and more accurate answer though.

Thank you, solver, but that doesn't work for me. I've reduced their size, I've tried the draw order tools, still always falls below. I am using the "bring forward" "send back" buttons (attached image). Is there something I am missing? Repeated attempts... nothing. 

 

And thanks on the tip _ i'll add a photo and location soon :)

thanks Alaskan_son, i attached it above in my original post. Are you able to help? For reference, I put everything in the room first, then added the counter last. 

Thanks!

I was referring to the actual plan file and not a screen shot.  Anyway, that may all be a mot point as it appears you may be using one of the Home Designer products which are lacking many of the capabilities available in Chief Architect Premier.  This is a prime example of why creating a good informative signature line is important.  I would suggest you head over to the Home Designer forum...

      I am designing a kitchen and created a custom counter top , I then need to create an opening for the apron front sink , in the picture you can see the issue I am having is it is leaving the front edge of the counter and when I place the sink in the cabinet it still shows up ? How would I get that to do away ! I cut the whole using the counter top tool !!
       
      Thanks
