Using X13. Have "framing default" checked for "Allow Automatic Balloon Framing"...but, as you can see in the picture below it's not working. I have auto framing walls turned on...experimented with the joist direction...didn't seem to have an effect.
I'm on a MAC...maybe this is a reason? Does anybody know if this new feature in X13 actually works?
I'm using home designed pro 2021.
Circled in the picture below is the area unfilled between the lower and upper roof where there is no wall. I can extend the wall inward toward the peak to close the gap, but then area below the gap is closed off. I've experimented, googled, and watched a bunch of video tutorials on roofs. Actually seemed like one of the tutorial videos had a similar issue, but the instructor kinda glossed over it and changed to pitch on one roof to make it look a little better before moving on.
After banging my head for a few days, hoping someone has the answer.
(plan is also attached for the image)
I am drawing a cross section using 2D CAD lines (to get more detail than the automatic cross section Chief creates).
I am having issues finding a Batt Insulation Pattern to use.
I am using Chief X9
- Chief Architect has a Block under "CAD Blocks / Detail Components / Insulation / Batt / 5.5" R-21", but unfortunately it is only 12" x 5 1/2" of size, so if I want a smaller or bigger section, it stretches the block and the proportions change.
- I found a free .PAT file online (attached), but It needs to be in a specific location to work, the minute I move the polyline with that pattern in it, the pattern moves with it.
I have tried to illustrate this in the attached screen shot.
Please let me now if anyone has any recommendations / solutions to this issue.
