Hole in polyline solid

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am trying to create a hole in a polyline solid.  I followed the directions on CA but get the error attached.  I am trying to make my pool scuppers look right by adding in a hole inside the scupper.


And on a side note, 3Dwarehouse has some neat things.  I always get tickled when I see those little water streams with the splash in the pool from the scuppers.  Great find at 3D warehouse.  But some things seem to be geared toward gaming, like finding a horse that had nothing to do with Roman warriors was a challenge, but I found a really nice one (pic also attached).


But any other free sources of good 3d objects?

A hole will only work if it is drawn in the same plane in which the original p-solid was drawn. IOW, if you drew the pool wall in plan view, then switched to an elevation view to draw the scupper holes, it won't work and you'll get that error.

If you are using polysolids and they won't do what you want (you don't say exactly what tools you are using), maybe because they were drawn in different views, you may have success by converting them to Solids.

You should then be able to use the boolean operations to edit them.

      I am trying to create an address sign using a square polyline solid and REMOVING text from the square like in the attached image.  I know I can subtract other simple polyline solids, but how do I subtract a letter or number?  Chief Architect tech support had no solution.
      Thanks in advance

      Is there way to make a schedule of polyline solids? For example, several exterior trim objects created using p-solids and on their own layer. It would be handy to be able to create a schedule of items on a particular layer set.

      I am using chief architect version 10. When I use the "create a hole in selected object tool" on my a-frame's roof, it deletes the fascia board. Does anyone know how to prevent this>?

      I just migrated from Home Designer Pro to CA X10.  I have a plan that is close to completion.  At one point, the framing was showing correctly- joists running parallel to my north and south walls.  Now, I have a big hole in the middle where my living room has no framing, and the joists are running perpendicular to the north/south now.  How do I figure out what I inadvertently changed?  Is there a way to delete and rebuild the framing?  Thanks in advance!
