I am using the railing to auto generate columns and beam for an exterior porch.
For some reason, the railing is generating 4 -1/2 columns, where only 3 are needed.
The spacing is set to 8' o.c. for the columns.
How can I correct this so that only 3 columns are being generated?
Any feedback is appreciated.
See attached plan file and circled area on the pics.
Building on the videos Eric (Solver) made recently...I did this video to show how you can construct a tapered paneled column in plan view, using p-solids and a molding polyline. It's a fast method...and the best part is you don't have to use a 3D molding polyline.
Check it out....
Is there still no material that will allow transparency in Vector View? I use a lot of glass for deck railings and its completely insane what needs to be done to make an exterior elevation drawing look decent. Currently, I need to build my railings without any glass, then build the glass manually, place on a separate layer so I can have it on in renderings, but off in elevation views (vector). Then, in elevation view, I need (choose) to manually draw p-lines with transparent fill to show the glass without blocking visibility of the structure beyond.
I don't like fighting Chief's defaults and auto features, but I also want my drawings to have a certain appearance. Anyone have any thoughts or tips for transparent glass (not windows) in vector views?
