Here I am trying to cut section of a deck. (Image attached). Unfortunately garage wall is in line with the deck edge. (plan view image attached) which I don't want to see in my section view. Is there a way I can hide or clip what I want to see? Garage wall is hiding the stair behind.
Does anyone know, if you can take the automatic cross-section. From DBL click on your room, on the right side of your screen and save it to your plan?
I have attached an image below. I have tried snipping or print screen, but I'm looking for a chief alternative. I want to be able to take this as a cad detail section and have it to scale in my plan.
Hi. Whenever I create a "cad detail from view" from a cross-section, I end up with double lines in the cad detail from view drawing. When I go to erase a line in the drawing, there is another line underneath so I have to erase the same line twice to eliminate it. Any suggestions as to why this is happening and how to correct it? Any input is most appreciated. I am using the current build of X9 and running it on my iMac. Thank you kindly.
Is there away to have the cross section callout only show up on the framing plan and foundation plans and not the floor plan ?
The problem I am having is the floor plans has several strings of dimensions so I have to pull the section bubble out further away
from the floor plan. I do not add dimension to my framing plan so the section bubble are to far away from the plan. So either I would
like to not show the section bubbles on the floor plan or have the ability to locate the section bubble out further on the floor plan and
in further on the framing and foundation plans.
Also is there a way not to have the line between the two section bubbles be continuous across from one bubble to the other ?
I like that line to only be 1" to 2" long. I do not like a lot of lines crossing over the framing plans since there is so many other line
representing rafters, F.J., C.J., beams, drag struts, etc.
I am a beginner using Chief X8 and its got me stumped. The plan I am working on is a rambler with a basement and 18" floor trusses. When I add a floor truss to the plan and open a cross section the truss displays at the wrong height. The top of the truss is flush with the top of the subfloor plywood and there is a gap between the bottom of the truss and the drywall. If I change the truss to an I joist it displays at the correct height. What am I missing?
