Where Happened to my Ceiling Framing in my Elevations

Problem: CA, since way back, would always show the ceiling framing as well as the floor framing in a cross section elevation of one of my kitchen plans.

I upgraded to X5  from V10 in January. ......X5 wont show the ceiling framing anymore. I have attached two cross sections of the same plan.

 

The 1st one is from Ver. 10 and was printed and sent to my client in December of 2013.

 

The 2nd one is from April of 2014 and is X5.

 

As you can see, there is floor framing (12")  and ceiling framing (5 1/2") in the Ver. 10 elevation from 2013

 

There is no ceiling framing in the April 2014 from CA X5

 

Can some please give me a hand. I have tried just about everything I know, without going to tech support as of yet.

 

Thank You in Advance for your help!

I don't see any framing in either of those pdf's. Chief is all about layers, you can show anything in any view you want just by turning them on and off. Check your layers for those things and you have to frame it to show it. Turn on auto framing floors-ceilings / walls / roofs.

Ok. Fair enough. There is no “framing” shown.

 

Specifically, if you compare both cross sections, you should see at the bottom of each drawing a black outline which would appear to be the floor framing… Should be the same for the ceiling.

But it is missing on the one drawing.

 

I want it to be there.  And that is what I am trying to figure out.

I will try your suggestions.

 

Thank you for your help!!!

The images you posted look like wall elevations not cross sections. There is a big difference in that wall elevations are not supposed to show the side walls. I know that at one point in time we fixed bugs with the wall elevations to fix cases where the walls were shown when they shouldn't be.

To be clear. I use "Back-clipped Wall Sections" and "Cross Section/Elevation" to create my elevations for my cabinetry plans. Both appear to do the same thing as far as what they show. 

 

I have attached a new file from X6. (which I upgraded to over the weekend)

 

Please drag a Cross Section/Elevation or a Back-clipped Wall Section. They look exactly alike.

 

But... unlike the PDF drawings I attached earlier, there is no floor or ceiling framing shown. If I am not using the correct nomenclature, I apologize. Just compare the PDF's to the to the new plan. See the difference?

 

I want my elevation s to look like they used to.  Very Frustrated!!

Mike,

 

There is no such camera as a "Back Clipped Wall Section" camera.

 

The Wall Elevation camera does not show the side walls, ceiling or floor framing.

 

The Back Clipped Cross Section camera and the Cross Section/Elevation cameras show the side walls, ceiling and wall framing - assuming that the framing has been built and the layers displayed.

HERE IT IS ,I JUST TURNED ON THE LAYERS YOU NEEDED AND ADDED THE FRAMING

If you want a floor , you need to build one

 

Not really sure why you are yelling at me in all caps.

 

The plan you modified looks nothing like what I am trying to achieve.

I apologize if I have not explained correctly on this forum what it is I wish to do.

Thank you for your help though.

Glenn,

 

I meant to type Back-Clipped "Cross" Section not "Wall" section.

 

I know the "Wall Elevation" camera does not show side walls, ceiling and floor framing.

 

The Back Clipped Cross Section or the Cross Section/Elevation cameras are what I use.

 

I just cant seem to figure out how.

 

If someone could open the attached file2014-04-29 36WALL 96CLG.plan and explain how to make it look like the PDF I attached 2014-04-26 Newman Kit Elev V10.pdf at the beginning this thread, I would very much appreciate it.

 

Once again, thank you for your help. I am just not getting it.

V10 seems so long ago.  It may have shown floor structure and ceiling structure in simple diaphragm format, when doing a section.  Lines of the outer envelope.

 

We got to add more detail to structure as releases came out, thus your issue.  We now don't get the diaphragm bounds, instead, we get all the details of frame and finish.

 

So why not just settle for some CAD boxes and call it a wrap, if you want that old look?  I am kind of surprised a cabinet specialist like you would not want the wall elevation instead.

Gene,

 

Thanks for your post. 1st thing that has made any sense so far.

 

I provide a service that offers more than just cabinetry design, so I need to learn this upgraded version.

 

Thank you again for your explanation. I will now look for help in other locations.

Not yelling at you, just to lazy ,and forget to change the all caps sometimes

I think I misunderstood you with your title, "What happened to my ceiling framing--".

thought you wanted framing, I think what you want is the void where framing would go.

I'll take those rep points anytime, thanks. I think your answer is, they changed it and you'll have to draw lines for the voids. I thought taking away the framing would leave the void , but it doesn't. For me I like to see the framing, but that's me.

Yup. Title should have been "What happened to my Ceiling Framing in my Elevations"

 

I am all thumbs sometimes.. could not change it after the post.

 

Yes, this seems to be the case. I have attached an X5 simple drawing 2014-04-30 differen wall types.plan. Please drag a Back-clipped Cross Section camera. They all have floor framing, or, void as you put it, but no ceiling framing (void)

 

I used different wall types just for ships and giggles.

 

X6 is the same way. I just cant seem to get it to show my ceiling framing (void)

 

This being the true Topic of this thread.

I don't think you will get any kind of ceiling structure until you build either a roof or floor above.  Then it will show up in your cross section views.  You might be able to get the look you want by building the roof and then turning it off in the cross section.  Or, if all else fails, just draw it in using the cad tools.

Yes, this seems to be the case. Thank You for your input.

I am marking this as solved or answered so nobody need reply anymore.

This will just go down as an unsolved mystery I guess.

Thanks for all who tried to help!

Mike

Not so fast!

 

To get the ceiling framing to display in the Cross Sections, you have to build the ceiling framing.

Build... framing...Build Framing...1st panel...Ceiling Above Floor 1...Build Ceiling Framing.

The ceiling framing will now display in your cross sections.

Glen, I think he just wants the void to show and no framing.
