Reference Layer Set Question (SOLVED)

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to show the hips/ridges of a roof either above or below using a reference layerset?  Am I missing something?  The edges of the roof appear (see pics) but the hips/ridges do not.  I've tried this with some of the Chief OOB templates...and I get the same result.  

 

Thanks...

You might try turning off the XOR option.  If you draw the same line twice with XOR turned on, it is hidden.

 

For some more info about reference display settings see my post here:

No issues on my end, care to post your plan(s)?

 

 

Rene - Thanks for taking the time to help.  Dermot answered the question....I had "XOR" turned on.

I deleted my post after seeing Dermot's post, you resurrected it somehow!

      Whenever I try to do a virtual walk through, I get these random flashes of interior wall and roof layers coming through. It happens with both interior and exterior walk throughts. It looks horrible, see the attached example. I've tried turning off all sorts of layers in the camera view - nothing seems to help and I can't find anyone else mentioning this on here so I figure it must be a setting on my end. Also have tried playing with frame rates and rendering options to no avail. Any ideas?

      My firm has structural standards that are normally done in AutoCAD. I want to be able to achieve them in chief architect.
       
      This is our section annotation. I was able to create the top but I need help on the triangle on the tail.

       
      Also, is there a way to change the appearance or display the structural framing members as a polyline in plan view and have them as original in 3D? 
      We currently use polylines for our joists, headers, girders, beams, rafters, etc. with a 1" to 3"  Global Line Width and either phantom, continuous, or dashed/hidden line types in AutoCAD.

       
      I want to be able to produce our structural drawings like in chief architect instead of going back in forth because I like the auto framing features in chief. 
       
      Let me know if additional files are needed for clarity. Or if this is the wrong forum for this topic.

      Hello!
       
      I'm working on a huge plan right now, and it's starting to run really sluggishly so I decided to take some time out to troubleshoot and clean up the file a bit. I've done a few suggested things (purge unused materials and CAD symbols, for example), and moved on to my layers. When I started the file, I imported all individual layers of the CAD file so I could work on the plan bit by bit, but it also resulted in a lot of unnecessary data being added to the scene. I'm trying to go through and delete all the layers I don't need or have finished with, but most of them won't let me. Some will claim there's still something on them despite nothing showing up when I hit Control+A, and others will switch to "Used in defaults," after I deleted everything on them. But I don't know what that means, and I can't figure out where in the defaults they're being used so I can turn it off.
       
      The layers that claim they aren't empty when they should be are bugging me, too. Control+A, zooming out and dragging a box over the scene never select anything for me to delete, but they still say "in use." I may be able to provide a back-up if necessary, though I'm not sure my company will allow it and, again, it's a very large plan. Can anyone help?

      I am initiating a walkthrough  and all my Landscaping layers are not showing up. All the Layers are on in the plan view
      that I initiate it from but they are off in the walkthrough. What am I missing & how do I fix this?

      Pergola Ceiling framing issue when sent to layout page from Pergola -Framing Layout set.
      I send Working PLan View to layout sheet w/o pergola framing.

      I send Pergola-Framing layer to layout sheet w, pergola framing and it automaticaly adds the framing to the working plan View floor plan. of layout. (How can I correct this issue). I put the 2x2's, 2x6's and 2x8's all on their own layer. Still cannot solve the isse. 
       
      I would  appreciate any assistance with this issue.I was trying to get to client tomorrow for review.
