2 Odd Issues

Recommended Posts

I am working on a remodel (which I dont often do) adding a larger living room and small balcony that will be the basis for a future stair to lower existing deck.  2 issues I am having.

 

1. The terrain starts to "freak" out on me when I place a terrain modifier to flatten area around pad, and

 

2. I placed the existing lower deck on a layer, and have that layer "off" in my 3d render view but its still showing.

 

 

Any help would be appreciated - I am forcing myself to use CA though this.

 

Here are pics and the file of course (please remember I am actively working on the file and its a remodel).

You have overlapping height controls, cant have 2 heigths at the sane spot. I just moved the terrain lie away from the 45 deg pad area

Hi Johnny ,

 

quick note 1st ...just post the plan file without zipping it unless it's over 25mb , that way people can just click and say Open , no need to save to HD, extract, open, review , delete etc etc...

 

I think all you did was put the Deck Railings on a separate Layer....  ( the deck on 0 doesn't appear to be blocked or a symbol ?)  but in the 3D view you still have Framing_Deck Framing,Planks, Beams ,Posts and Beams on ...... unlike in plan view where they are off. 

 

 

The Elevation region is 9 " above the Floor of the Basement (-99), and the Concrete slab it 11" above ...is that right?  Its a walkout basement ?        perhaps not..... 

 

I did the opposite to Graeme...pulled the 45° part of the ER forward a little and that "spike" disappeared but I am not sure what it should look like without Photos etc. , you probably need to add extra EL's to help smooth it out if that is the issue?

Thank you both for the responses....the terrain I was able to "mostly" fix, but the deck issue is still odd since I dont have railings for that deck.  I will try to send the "shape" to that layer I guess and perhaps that will work.

you used the Straight deck edge I guess not straight deck railing but CA sees them the same in Plan , it just doesn't draw the railing in 3D.

 

I think you would need to "block" all the deck components and put them on your new layer ....if that is possible  , it's almost as easy just to turn those 4 layers off since they are grouped in the ALDO, if you don't want to see them in a certain view.
