I am using CAX6 and am trying to get the exterior dimensions of a residential structure to reach to the extent just under the siding. From inside to outside, the exterior wall should have 1/2" wallboard, 2x6 stud walls, 1/2" OSB, 2" rigid insulation, and then siding for which I've allowed 1/2". All of the wall components will sit on the platform except for the siding, which should cover the rim joists.
I believe I have the correct dialog box and selections to do it (or maybe not …. see attached screen shot). However, after I make the selections in the Wall Type Definitions dialog box and back out of the dialog boxes leading there, I find that the cross section is incorrect, and the outside of the siding is flush with the platform. If I return to the Wall Type Definitions dialog box to find out why, I find that my selections have not been saved.
I'm careful to make sure that I back out of each dialog box correctly (Clicking OK, OK, Done, etc.) but the changes I make are not saved.
There's probably something I need to select or conditions I have to meet, but darned if I can figure them out after hours of messing with it.
Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!
I have a railing that is currently being dimensioned to from the outside of the panel. I would like to transition that dimension to either the center of the post or the outside of the post. However, I am unable to manipulate the extension line itself to snap to the corner of the post.
I apologize because I know this topic has been covered many times but I can't seem to find exactly the help I need from previous posts.
I have created a simple room information label but wanted to modify it slightly. See attached. Want ceiling height to read in feet and inches and want to round the room volume to nearest whole number.
A related matter is when I go in the text box and try to insert a user defined macro they are all grayed out. I was attempting to copy and modify the volume macro to round out, but could not insert the modified version.... Not sure why that is.
If someone can point me in the right direction and or provide any assistance, that is greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Mike Dolce, Architect
I have added the Room ceiling height and the Room finished floor material to the Room Label to make a my custom room label.
I need the ceiling height to be in feet (&inches) not in inches. I need the floor finish material to be the Generic type of finish (wood, tile, carpet, etc.) not the specific type of material.
How can the label be modified to do this? Or can I change the way the room ceiling height dimension is noted without affecting my other dimensions?
Can the materials be automatically noted as a type as they are found in the library rather than a specific material?
