Vaulted Ceiling Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi, as you can see on the attached plan, I'm having trouble closing the gap between the vaulted ceiling and the higher flat ceiling where they meet (you can see into the attic from the second floor). Can someone suggest how to fix this problem? 

Also, on the picture you can see that I have a few exposed studs on the corner above the stair landing. I can't figure out how to clean them up. I'm a new Chief user so any help/suggestions would be very welcome!

Thanks

 Where is the flat ceiling in your image?

You can usually use wall settings to make this work -- like Roof Cuts Wall At Bottom, but I took a quick look and nothing seemed to work.

 

The get it done way is to select the wall and reshape it as required. You are working with the wall polyline, so it shapes like other polyline objects.

For the framing showing at the corners, look at Through Wall at Start/End, and the Edit Wall Intersection tool.

Forgot to say this wall needs to be set as No Room Definition. Draw it back from the railing, set No Room Definition, then center it on the railing, if that's where it needs to be.

      Hello everyone,
      In my current project, a client asks for a groin vault, something like that. 
      I've looked through the forum but I can't find anything about this.
       
      How is it possible to do with Chief? 
       I would be very grateful for a video.

      Thanks in advance

      Hi.
      I have a problem that I am hoping to get some feedback on Re: soffits. I believe to be a X11 issue.  In my plan, i created open rafters first on attic level with no finished ceiling, the soffits would "glow" with emission. I am a part of Chief Tutor.com so I sent .plan to him to get feedback.  He took the file, put the soffit rafters on the first level and it fixed the problem on his computer.  However, when i did what he instructed on my own software, the soffits would still glow in physically based render with "improve lighting quality" checked, and they are downright black when the improve lighting is not checked.  He informed me it was  likely an X11 issue because he was able to resolve in the newest version.  Is there a work around I can do for this?   I am contracted out through a small construction company and they may not be upgrading to new version; So a work around would be ideal.  Thank you.  See attached files for images of problem.

      We're trying to figure out how to change the angle of pendent lights on vaulted ceilings. When we create the ceiling angle, the lights follow and aren't angled properly. How do we change the lights so they go vertical rather than at a tilt?

      OK...I've been messing around with the "Tray Ceiling" tool in X12.  Cannot for the life of me figure out how to create a "nested" tray ceiling.  In the help file it shows to unique icons...one for a "tray"...and one for a "nested tray".  I cannot find where this "nested" tray menu or icon exists.  
       

       
      Is the nested ceiling shown below in Example B possible with the Nested Tray Ceiling tool?  Thanks!
