Strange anomoly in render views

Recommended Posts

Anyone had this happen?  I thought I had painted a color on a library object (without knowing it) but I can't get the strange (grayish) color to go away. I checked the symbol, etc., (a tub shower from the library) it is supposed to be white in the object DBX, and is to some degree. The strange color has also bled into part of a near by door.. no matter what render style I use it shows up?

I thought it was a shadow, but no matter which way I move the camera it is still there.  Video card?  But this is the only item / time it has happened.

They are shadows from something, just open up your camera DBX and uncheck shadows, they disappear. I looked around your plan and there are many areas where there are major gaps in the ceilings and walls extending into the attic. This is most likely causing the problem.

that fixed it, thanks Graham!  I still have to clean up some things on the inside.  I'm working on finding what's causing the gaps.

Pleased to have helped. Yes, I realized you still had work to do, just indicating that these openings can be problematic when rendering.

You knew what to look for.....I sure didn’t.

      This project was set up for paper size Super B 13X19 (because I can print that here in this office for ready check). The client (builder) has decided he wants me to change my layout sheet size to Arch D 24X36, so his subs could read and scale the drawings. I wasn't sure I did this right (after reading what few post I could find), I opened my layout>page "0" reset the print to page size to Arch "D" 24X36, which of course changed how my layout template set to 13X19 fits. I then edited my borders and title block etc., to fit the new layout size.  I then went to each additional sheet that I had added notes, additional info for title block, most everything else fit the new paper size ok.  I can't print a trial drawing but the PDF's I printed with the new sheet size appear to be ok. Does the method I used make sense? I'll send him the PDF set of construction drawings, and he can have them printed. I had previously set up a layout template formatted to Arch "D" but I wasn't sure how to get all my plans and details transferred to the new layout template, since you can only have one layout open at any given time?

      Setting up my template plan for the next project to start as soon as I complete the CD's on the current job.  The client wants to add a two bed home for his dad and mom to live on his property in their own home.  I don't need to model the interior of the Existing home, in order to draw the new home, however; both code and the HOA want to see the new home in relationship to the Existing home, roof plan, side walks, drives, minimum 4 exterior elevations to show (architectural integrity etc.) so the new home is in keeping with the existing homes exterior architecture.  I know of course to set up all my defaults for this project before I draw the first wall.  I need to set up (the terrain I think in this case) any new wall type that I don't already have available in my wall type menu. The HOA wants the roof line, fascia design and elevation to match the existing as close as possible. The short story is I need to get the terrain elevations correct, and  draw the existing home's exterior and once that is all in good order, design the new home.
       
      After reading the help files on this particular operation,  the implication is (I should draw this as if it were being placed in a subdivision?) 
      I need to then export the existing home out of X11 as a 3D symbol, and then import it into the terrain / plan of the new home in order to show the proper relationship. The client wants the elevation of the slab of the new home set at the same elevation as that of the existing home. There is an approx. 3 to 4 foot slope down hill from the existing to the new home (the new will have to be on a raised foundation). So importing the existing home  into the new plan as a 3D symbol, doesn't really help me understand how to show the plan of the Existing Home (Roof plan / exterior walls) drives and walks without actually drawing it in the same plan as the new home. Am I wrong here?  Won't what ever I draw or change if I draw the existing home in the same plan as the new, won't  the changes I make drawing the new home affect the Existing Home as well?  I have other questions I will post in a new thread.

      Continuing to work on my plan, and suddenly an object appears in the 3D render view? It hadn't showed up until today. I've been working on the lay in ceiling grid and thought it might be some grid sticking out to the wall, but when looking at a cross section it appears to be on an angle like maybe a window sill. There isn't a window in that location. I look at the 3rd floor (attic level) nothing even slightly appears to be there.

      On the current project modeling the as-built exterior, there are several raised planting beds, with different top of wall, elevations.  One on each side of the porch same height as the porch I built them with walls but had to build them on the foundation level, for them to show correctly on level one.  
       
      I attempted to do the others the same way (using the wall type I created for the porch) but When they butt to the building walls, it causes the building walls to separate horizontally  and the only way to repair the gap is to pull the walls away.
       
      So I deleted the set of lower raised beds built with walls, and used the straight terrain retaining wall tool (the one that lets the wall set on the terrain) in stead,  so I could draw each of the other two beds (one is 42" high, the one between it and the porch is only 32" high) and not affect the building walls or porch. This worked fine as they do not cause the building walls to separate, however; when I draw the 32" high retaining wall between the 42" high retaining wall on the left, and the Porch, on the right;  the wall height jumps up from 32" to match the 42" height of the other Raise bed on the left. 
       
      The 32" high wall isn't affect by the Raised bed at the porch on the right, (I guess because I didn't draw the porch flower bed with retaining walls).
       
      What is the best way to model raise beds that have differing top of wall heights and yet connect to each other?   I have done the search for raised beds, terrain features etc.

      I thought by inserting wall breaks in the walls to use different materials, (according to earlier response I had from the forum) I can change one wall (not pony walls)  to, brick and the other walls to corrugated metal, by going into the wall DBX and making the changes there, and that's the way I attempted to do it.  But, when I go back to the plan all walls are either all brick or all Corrugated.
      Back when I started this plan, in order to get it ready for the Board review, I ended up using the paint object tool (I know that is not the best way to do it?) so I could present the Color perspective views and they wouldn't be confused. I know I still have errors in the plan, and as I've been able to determine what to do, I've worked on fixing them. I know my layers / annosets are all screwed up (and Larry Hawes is working on tutoring me as he has time) but I'm practicing on that when I have the time, believe me, I want to use the soft ware correctly from the start to finish.  Update plan zipped and attached. You'll note there is a PDF over-lay currently in my plan so I could use it as a template for a site / landscape plan (which I haven't had time to do yet.
      As always, thanks for your help!
