Wall lines showing through exterior in elevation view.

Recommended Posts

I can't find out why the walls show through the exterior on either side of the window in the elevation view. I've tried playing with some layer options and didn't find a solution. I'm thinking it's because they occupy the same space because it's doing the same thing with the roof, but the walls automatically snap so it's not like I dragged the interior wall too far into the exterior.

Zooming doesn't fix the problem. I also just found a double line on the back side of the house. What does the orthographic camera see that the 3D model camera doesn't?

You need to turn off the AUTO ATTIC WALLS and pull the exterior wall over each direction. The lines are caused by the different walls intersecting at the same point.

Sorry...left out a step. After you turn off AUTO ATTIC WALLS delete the little triangle attic walls on each side of the lines. Then pull the exterior wall over.

I think if you go to the rooms at the second floor and DEFAULT THE CEILING HEIGHTS,  this should fix all.

 

I rarely rarely rarely change the ceiling heights from the default heights.  Maybe you do this to do the auto rebuild roofs,  I do  not auto build roofs.  Point is,  I rarely see this problem,  maybe because I leave the default ceiling heights in place.

Thanks for the help, I'm still not able to fix it though. I don't think I fully understand what you mean by pulling the exterior wall over. Did you have the 2nd floor exterior wall take the place of the triangular attic walls? I'm still playing around with it and the problem seems to come from either where the 2nd floor exterior wall ends, or where that wall meets an attic wall. Should I not have attic walls the same elevation as non-attic walls?

Never mind, setting the ceiling heights back to defaults fixed it without changing the size of my kneewalls. Thanks guys!

You can see in the picture that a drywall layer is going thru the outside wall, just use the "edit wall layer intersections" tool to bring it back to where it should be.

...use the "edit wall layer intersections" tool...

 

You know...I'm not sure I've ever used that tool.  Not sure if I ever even knew it was there.  Not sure I'll ever need it, but thanks for bringing to my attention Perry : )

      I have a home design that I am working on in home designer professional 2020.  Would eventually like to get it completed and then a set of construction prints for Nashville, Tennessee.  whidh means I will need floor plans and elevation views as well as a plot plan.  I have the plot drawn with some contour lines in the drawing I have developed.  The house faces about due west (not the best but that is the lot I have.    I have attached a picture of what I want the exterior rendering to look like.  Looking for job bid.  The plan file is zipped and attached.  Following needs to get done and then a front rendering and the file returned with the updates.  (Can pay via paypal etc)  
      1. Master bedroom vaulted ceiling following rafters up to height of 12 feet then flat across.  House rafters will be 2x8 or 2x6 depending on span.  
      2. Fix the roof planes
      3. Shed roof with 2 in 12 slope over the back deck.  Extends out about even with the master.  This is asphalt shingles.  Ceiling will follow the rafters
      4. The peaks (side and front larger dormer) should be board and batten not sided, the rest of the house sided, the foundation walls are stone
      5. Make sure chimney carries through to the roof from fireplace in family room.  Chimney is stone where it can be seen outside of house.
      6. The basement foundation walls connecting to the crawl space (unfinished area) should be only 5' tall (it would just be in one area)
      7. Front porch is to have a metal roof, rest of house is asphalt shingles (charcoal color but not black)
      8. Stairs should be 42" wide and should be fixed . Want them closed underneath. Somehow I cant get this to look right
      9. Need a front rendering showing view of the house for presentation to client
      10. Need file updated to reflect these changes and has to be readable with Home Designer Pro 2020
      11. Floor deck for both the first and second floor are 11-7/8 TJI with 3/4 subfloor (I think I have this right).
       
      At any rate, looking for quote to get this done.  Thanks for looking.

      I've used CA for years and AutoCAD since 1985. (Yeah I'm old).
      In Florida we do a lot of Block house plans. (CMU) 8x16x8 concrete blocks.
      Other than manually placing block patterns. Does anyone have an easy way to do wall fill patterns to show the ACTUAL CMU BLOCK Pattern in plan view. 
      It would be great if it actually placed filled cells required for all window/door openings and corners. Any suggestions? 
       
      Thanks

      I am using Windows 10 and Version X11.  I am trying to use an interior wall with brick on both sides. When I go to 3D the interior brick changes the interior part of the exterior wall from white pine to brick.  how can I keep the interior separate from the exterior

      I wonder why my second floor loft flooring is sticking through the roof and can be seen on the outside of the building?

      I think I am missing something. I want the "Text Below Line" on my Elevation Camera Labels/callouts to show the sheet number. And make this the default. Does any one know how?
