Exterior walls not showing

Recommended Posts

My exterior walls aren't showing up in camera perspective. I checked the display options, and the wall layers are checked. Please help. This hasn't happened to me before.

The problem seems to be your roof is sitting on the terrain.

The walls still aren't appearing, only the foundation

Open the room and check the Ceiling Height.

 

If that's not the problem, attach the plan and I'll have a look.

Or Using a Floor Camera shot on level 0   it will only show the Slab...... use a Full Overview

It was set to 0", thank you for the advice. Have never had ceiling height set at 0" when building out rooms.

My comment above about the roof was to get you thinking about why the roof would be where it was.

 

Roofs build over walls whose height is controlled by the ceiling of the room they form.

Of course this is with automatic roofs but looking at the picture I would venture a guess this was drawn manually???

Manual works the same.

Very true if the roofs are set to the correct height...

Soon as I added the roof, all but 2 or 3 walls disappeared, taking the roof to the terrain. I checked the ceiling height again to see if its at 0", and its set at 120". I've attached the file. would you mind taking a look?

As mentioned above your roof planes are set @ varying heights and below ground.  Please do yourself a favor and try auto roofs.  It is a really easy plan for auto roofs.

      Hey guys, I'm finishing up a plan where the wall under the porches is siding.  The rest of the house is painting brick.  I've drawn the walls, added the new material from the library, but some walls show up correctly and some show up as siding.  I don't understand.  The hatch marks are even on the plan.  I open the wall and double check them and the type even says "brick 4" with the white painted brick selected as I want. Yet when I go through the steps and then review, the same siding is showing.  I've closed out the program and thought maybe when I reopened it would fix itself.  Not the case.
       
      Any ideas?
       
      Thanks!

      I am having fireplace issues. I had regular fireplace drawn previous. Client wanted real  fireplace not prefab. When I drew this one in it filled up Family rm and Bedrrom wall windows with brick. I am meeting with this client at 9:15 am in the morning right after another meeting over at 9:00 am. I will not have anytime in the morning to correct this issue. Any help tonight would be

      I'm trying to model an HVAC wall surround/corral. Homeowner needs visualization. I've had great luck modeling houses, additions, & decks, but this little project has stumped me.
       
      I'm trying to create a 5' tall (from ground level) wall to surround the exterior HVAC equipment. The wall would be "L" shaped and attached to the house. I would like to model this with & without a gate (long side of the "L"). I have tried this both by creating exterior walls and fences, but cannot achieve the desired end results... can only achieve incomplete results. I could have hand drawn it by now.
       
      Details:
       
      1. Walls framed with 4x4 pressure treated posts & 2x4 pressure treated lumber. Bottom of wall would be 4" above ground level (obviously, 4x4 posts protrude down into ground).
      2. OSB sheathing
      3. Exterior wall material is lap siding
      4. Interior wall material is 4x8 Hardie
      5. I want to picture frame exterior walls with 1x6 boards (lap siding runs inside this)
      6. Need a 1x8 cap board across the top of the wall.
      7. Would like rendering to show 4" gap between ground and bottom of framed wall.
      8. Not sure how to model the gate/door... is it a door? is it a fence gate? POA restrictions for this project require gate to have same characteristics as the wall (lap siding) so it blends in.
       
      Can anyone provide direction to help me with this? Thanks in advance!
