Missing all 'floor and a half' walls

Recommended Posts

I have created a perimeter on the first floor. Then created a second floor. Then created a smaller perimeter for the 'floor and a half '.

I build the roof and it looks good except all the walls are missing on the floor and a half level.

I thought you needed walls to make a roof unless you used room dividers. I didn't use room dividers and got the same effect somehow.

I would prefer to see the walls.

Any thoughts as to what tick I may have erroneously ticked?

Thanks!

Does perimeter = walls?

 

Posting your plan file will help others help you. Close out of Chief first.

Your 1st. floor roof is cutting off the 2nd. floor walls.

Try rebuilding the roof. Be sure you have room definition on the 2nd. floor. I'll look at your plan in a little while if someone doesn't beat me to it. Worse case would be to edit the roof planes. Should only take a minute to do that.

Not sure what's going on but I could fix it manually.

Edited 1st, floor roof manually based on your wall placement. Personally I think you need to redesign this.

If you want the plan, let me know. I opened it in X10.

Yep  some strange goings on ..... I think while you Practice? Rocky , I'd try with a new CA OOB Default Template plan , it looks like the Roof Hole around the 2nd storey Walls isn't being generated for some reason... and like your other Thread there are weird little roof planes here and there, even using Auto Roofs.....

Yea. I did something similar in a new plan and everything generated just fine. Anyway, if I run into something that doesn't generate automatically correct, then I don't fight the program, doing it manually will get it done faster.

There is definitely a bug that needs to be worked out with that plan/situation.  Please make sure to send things like that in to tech support.  I have no reason whatsoever to think it's user error in this case.

      Hello All, 
       
      I am working on a project, which its an addition to a service garage with an apartment above. The problem that I am having is that I need a new wall against an existing in order not to see a hole in the area of the existing wall. As you can see in the image of the second floor plan below where I circled it is where I need to add another wall. 
       

       
      As you can see from my front elevation. I have a hole in the area where there is no wall. 
       

       
      I have attached a back-up of plan to this email for reference also. I am open to other suggestions on how to fix this issue. 
       
      Thank you in advance for the help.

      Does anyone know ho fix issues I have on this commercial remodeling addition?
      1) Windows and bar cabinets are not against the wall!
      2) wall is not showing on full camera looking back toward where it attaches to the existing building. Wall existing is brick on inside, unless I decide to cover it with gypsum bd!
      3) I have a 10 ft. plate with 9 ft dropped ceiling 2 ft x 4 ft acoustic tile in new addition.

      I'm looking to make my retaing wall larger than the terrain heights.
      In the instructions in this page, https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-00652/changing-the-height-of-a-retaining-wall.html
      I did all the steps, but the last point. In section/elevation, when I try to click the retaining walls, nothing happens. I don't get boxes or any selection at all.
      What is happening that I can't make this selection?
      I want to make my wall 6" above the grade/terrain elevation, and I want to drop the foundation of the wall by 24". How do I do this?
       
      Please assist.
      Thank you.

      Happy Holidays everyone.
       
      I have a plan where I have a few places I need an exterior wall above a roof section, but a railing, or in one case, no wall below.  Is there a way to do this in Chief Architect X11?  The one opening in my screen shot shows some exterior molding, but no wall.  On the one that has the railing below it, I tried the lower wall type if split by roof, but I couldn't get it to show as a wall above and a railing below.  It was either only a railing or all wall.
