Can you figure out what this is?

I get the same message - it looks like a ledger stone artifact - but you most likely already knew that...

Maybe even too big for dropbox.  I get "This folder is empty".   What else could go wrong ?

It's got something to do with the default pony wall. If you check the pony wall tick box, then uncheck it, the artifact goes away:

This is a goofball of a wall. The only way I could get everything to model correctly was to simply place a room divider parallel to the exterior wall and drag the fence back so it joins with the room divider and not the exterior wall.

Scott, in looking at the materials I see interior and exterior wall surface Aspen and that is what it appears to be when I zoom in as close as possible. Don't know what it would do if you delete these materials from here.

I didn't try it yet,Ken

Sorry Guys,  try this,

maybe it was too big to post directly

 

 

 

25mb should be fine direct on Forum, the Dropbox File is 22.5mb but not sure if you pared it down before reposting there?

One to send in perhaps so they can look at it....

 

Oh.... I keep getting a warning message about a Floor or Ceiling Platform Hole that is not entirely within it's Platform, switching annotations and selecting the wall at the Corner trigger it it seems .....maybe that is the issue ?

I do not think that is the issue,  that is a hole in ceiling at the second floor that I am not using.....  I was too lazy to delete it.

Forgot you use a 2nd floor even when there isn't one , so didn't look up there for it , the popup was getting annoying :)

Scott,

 

Ken is correct, the material is Aspen and it is assigned to the interior and exterior faces of the wall.

The fences are obviously screwy.

If I uncheck Follow Terrain, they disappear off the floor plan.

This is not the first time I have issues with the fence I am using. Sometimes it frames at the bottom.

Scott,

You should probably select a simpler Wall_Type for your fences.  I use a single transparent layer just the thickness I need.  Never use a Wall_Type with a framing material and avoid Pony Walls.  This pretty much goes for Railing Walls as well.

 

I think Chief's Default Fence Wall_Type uses 2x4 Fir Studs.  Change that material to a non-framing material (preferably transparent) and the framing problem will go away.

Scott,

It has something to do with the fence abutting the garage wall.

If you pull the fence away from the wall, the Aspen things go away.

I am off to bed now but will play a bit more if I get time tomorrow.

I tried it and it did not help. Did you try it.

 

As I said in previous post,  giving the fence a ROOM DEFINITION,  cleared  up the issue....  very strange

Not on your plan, but that's the way I have my plan set up so when I create a fence it won't "Frame".  Also, it appears you have the Wall Framing Layer turned on in that view - why?

FWIW, I just deleted the fence section with the gate and rebuilt it by drag/continue the side yard fence.  Then I inserted the gate and it was all fine.

 

Sometimes when something is goofy the best solution is to start over.  In this case the fence with the gate was just not behaving the way it should.

You might also notice that there is what appears to be an extra tall post at the end of the brick pony wall.  It's actually another fence/railing wall which contains some junk - the original stone artifact.  Deleting it caused some problems so you can either check it as invisible so it's not seen - or go ahead and recreate the fence and rebuild as in my previous post.
