moulding wall issue

Recommended Posts

I just drew a exterior wall. Then a polyline converted to moulding to see how it would work simply. I did to top and it went to bottom. 


Anyone know how to correct this? I was practicing so I could use on retail centers.

Because you have not attached a plan, this is just a guess, but I am assuming you expected the moulding to go to the top of the wall but "to top" is setting the moulding in relation to your moulding p-line...not the wall. To get that moulding to the top of the wall you would have to adjust the height of the moulding p-line...or offset the moulding by the height of the wall. In other words, if you have a 96" tall wall, you could either set the moulding p-line at 96" and set the moulding at 0" "to top" or you could set the moulding p-line at 0" and set the moulding to 96" "to top".

Draw your line in elevation. Convert to a 3D Molding Line. Assign your profile.




Check in plan view that it's positioned correctly.

      I'm looking to make my retaing wall larger than the terrain heights.
      In the instructions in this page,
      I did all the steps, but the last point. In section/elevation, when I try to click the retaining walls, nothing happens. I don't get boxes or any selection at all.
      What is happening that I can't make this selection?
      I want to make my wall 6" above the grade/terrain elevation, and I want to drop the foundation of the wall by 24". How do I do this?
      Please assist.
      Thank you.

      Happy Holidays everyone.
      I have a plan where I have a few places I need an exterior wall above a roof section, but a railing, or in one case, no wall below.  Is there a way to do this in Chief Architect X11?  The one opening in my screen shot shows some exterior molding, but no wall.  On the one that has the railing below it, I tried the lower wall type if split by roof, but I couldn't get it to show as a wall above and a railing below.  It was either only a railing or all wall.
      I am on a macbook pro..

      Hi all. I'm fairly new to the software and have only been using it since October. I have a client who wants a wood framed chimney extruding from the middle of the roof up from the gas fireplace. I've tried a bunch of different options to make this work but can't figure it out. Can someone please tell me how to draw walls on top of the roof?
      Thank you!

      Anybody have any idea whats going on with the intersections of these deck railings and the exterior walls? Cant get the original default siding to go away at the intersection. Have tried editing default material and making adjustments with the wall layer extents tool.
