Terrain won't show up under cantilever

Recommended Posts

Hey there! I'm having an issue with getting my terrain to show underneath my cantilever in my plan. any suggestions on how to fix this? I've searched through the chief tutorials and forums but could not find an answer to this problem.

That happens when you build the terrain on the same floor level as the cantilever.

There are several things things you can do.

Build the terrain on a different floor than the cantilever.

Uncheck Hide Terrain Intersected By Building.

Uncheck Hide Terrain Intersected By Building and use a manually drawn Terrain Hole.

If you are using X10 you can edit an automatically generated terrain hole.

Thanks for that simple set of solutions. I create and use terrains and often generate them before I do a foundation plan, so pushing it down is more trouble than I usually want to undertake. So I made a quick and dirty video of my preferred solution.

Thanks for the response everyone! I didn't know that there was a "Hide Terrain Intersected By Building" box to check so thank you glennw! also Thanks jtcapa1 for the video. you make a valid point and creating a hole using a polyline was very helpful.

Fletcher, I assume you are not using X10.  But when you are able to upgrade there is an automatic new feature that allows editing of the terrain hole around buildings.

 

From X10 help:

Or you can use Terrain...Feature...Terrain Hole if you want to start from scratch.

Thanks Doug,  I finally got serious about making video tutorials for CA as a very fast and informative way to show what I'm trying say with words. A picture might be worth a thousand words, but a video is worth much more. :-)

      A serious error occured (exception thrown) Contact technical support.
      While removing some interior walls this message occured.  I can't get rid of it and now I can't even go into other parts of the home and change anything without this stopping me.  If you can help please tell me what to do I have another 6 hours I need to work today.  Hoping for the best

      I know this has been talked about before but I can not find it and I can't figure out how to do it again.
      I have a house drawing and I have the terrain drawn and I would like to orient the house differently on the terrain. I want to keep my house drawing square with my plan so it would need to be the terrain itself that has to rotate. I can rotate the terrain perimeter but that doesn't rotate the elevation lines etc. When I select the perimeter and all the elevation lines, i am not able to rotate the whole thing.

      I have all of my exterior walls laid out and I have been following along with the video to learn the software, I am new to this! I went to change it to perspective floor overview and I keep getting this error message.

      Hi
       
      I've been away for several months and only now getting back into my CA 11.  But when I open my plan I get this error message.  I've tried updating my library but I have NOTHING no core no bonus no manufacturers.  
      Can anyone direct me or do I contact tech support
       
      Thanks
