Here's how you can make some nice looking demo elevations with red dashed linework.
Start with demo layer having the dashed + red linework style.
Then go 3D to vector view - and try to turn off the 'color' of the wall textures. Problem is it turns off the linework red color too, which you want to preserve:
My hack is just to turn the 'material color' to white for the textures on the existing model:
And the final result is pretty nice:
Then you can send this to your layout view as a static image ->
Or you can coordinate the demo elevations, which now look like this:
Final product - demo elevations with dashed, colored linework showing demo areas:
Does anybody have an easier idea? There could probably be some changes to the software to allow for 'plot lines' views with colored + dashed linework (or maybe there already is?) but currently this seems like the best way to do it.
I am using CA X13.
I am designing a house that has a wing that is at 45 degrees relative to the other wing of the house. I am working with a Home builder and he has shown me that when a house is at 45 degrees, typically the elevation views reflect that by only showing the outline of the structure that is set at 45 degrees, like this.
As you can see the garage portion is at 45 degrees relative to the elevation view. I am pretty sure this set was produced with AutoCAD.
How can I make this happen in CA?
Thanks in advance!

"Roof Beams Appear as Solid Timbers not I-Beams as Preferred."
I have a small insignificant detail problem that I wish to resolve and wonder if anyone has a Tip or Trick to fixing the fact that my Steel I Beams show up perfectly in my Posts and Deck patio beams but not in my roof beams.
I have changed all of my defaults to I Beams in my settings to no avail, just curious if this a detail I will have to learn to live with or a glitch in Chief?
Also I would like my I beams to show in the interior walls and imagine in order for this to happen I will need to create a niche and paint it black steel? Correct?
Please see attached image.
Thank you in advance,
