Attic Walls Invisible In 3D

Recommended Posts

I'm a full-time designer for a very busy General Contractor. I just made the switch to Chief Architect. I've been working with Chief X7 full-time for roughly a month, and I am already using it to produce Construction Documents. (I've been modeling in 3D with Sketchup Pro.) 


My problem is this: when I view interiors with a 3D camera, any wall that has been automatically generated as an attic wall (e.g. for shed roofs and vaulted gables) doesn't show up.  The walls show in any exterior view, and here's the kicker: the interior walls display correctly when I record a walkthrough! It happens in every plan, but here's the latest culprit:



I've followed the steps here with no success: http://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-00378/restoring-the-display-of-walls-in-3d.html


I'm frustrated that I can't show clients interior views due to blue sky and clouds showing up in their living room.


Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you.

It's possible you are using a floor camera, use the full camera.
