Basement Ceiling Near Garage Separation

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure when this happened or how it happened but my ceiling isn't meeting the wall in the basement.  The separation is from the garage.  I created a brand new plan to make sure my heights all matched up correctly and they do.  Can you tell by looking at my screenshots what might be happening or what I need to do to fix it?  Photo on the left is the wall/ceiling in the basement.  The photo on the right is from the garage.

 

Thanks so much!

I had to compress it.  Let me know if this worked.  Thanks.

Couple of suggestions.

 

When posting a plan, save a camera, or add a obvious note to the plan pointing out the problem.

 

Often Vector View works best for images as it shows details that Standard does not.

 

Try Ambient Occlusion down at least 50%.

 

And we need to know what software you are using. Best place is in your signature. See this thread for a how to.

Thank you.  I am new to Chief Architect and Architecture in general so I am still learning.  I will watch the signature video and see if I can figure out how to show the issue better.

You left out the most important info from your signature :) -- what version of Chief are you using -- X10, X11, Premier or interiors?

Just a guess, but it looks to be the result of the width of the  block wall between the basement and the garage,Try moving the foundation wall into the basement so the framed wall sits on the garage side of the foundation wall.

 Hope this helps.Ken

      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!

      OK guys, Kerry Francis of Garage Door Wizard fame emailed me over the weekend and said that he does not plan on improving the program because the demand does warrant the work required. 
       
      However, he is allowing me to sell Version 2.10.0025 of the program that works on with Chief Architect Premier X9 and Windows 10. To keep the cost and trouble down, I will sell the program for Kerry on the honor system. You send me $20 via PayPal to CVRE@sbcglobal.net and I will forward you the program via email. No sharing, warranty, no returns, no crying, no whining. Please let the rest of us know if it works or not on your computer setup by posting on this thread so others can decide whether to buy. 
       
      Upgrades are $20 also since there is no way to monitor registered users. Kerry said that the price back in the day was $35. So it is a good deal. Kerry was nice enough to allow me to distribute this because some of us asked for it. I am just trying to contribute to you guys and gals on the forum who have helped me by participating on the forum.
       
      Regards,
      Charles
