Unwanted line on exterior elevations

Recommended Posts

I'm new to Chief. I'm using X-8.

 

I'm working on my first plan with chief. On the rear of the house there is a bay window. This bay window is a part of

a breakfast nook. The breakfast nook has a vaulted ceiling. When viewing the rear exterior elevation (North) I get

extra horizontal lines that should not show. These lines are on the 45 degree walls of the bay. They are at the 8'

plate height. This wall is at the gable end. Also the corners of the bay window walls are thicker that the other corner

walls.

 

I have attached the plan. If someone could let me know how to remove the horizontal lines at the bay window and

why the walls are showing thicker on the 45 degree walls.

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Turn Wall,Framing off and the lines will go away. As thicker corners go, I'm not sure what you mean, I don't see it.

I checked and the Framing, Wall layer is turned off. Is there a setting that needs to be changed?

These lines are showing up at the 8' plate height at the gable end of the wall. The other gable

walls of the plan do not show these horizontal lines. I'm not sure why this gable wall is showing

them while the other gable walls do not.

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

      What is the best way to add a stucco hatch pattern to the exterior elevations ?
       
      When I view the exterior elevations in black and white there is no hatch pattern on the walls.
       
      I do a lot of remodels and addition projects. I like to show the new walls in elevation view with
      a hatch pattern of dots. I leave the existing walls without a hatch pattern. This helps distinguish
      new walls fro existing walls.

      How do you show a stucco pattern on the exterior walls in elevation views? When I turn off the color
      in elevation view the walls have no fill pattern. I have been using AutoCAD since 1993. In AutoCAD
      I would assign a hatch (fill) pattern of random dots that represents stucco.
       
      Is there a way to show a stucco pattern of random dots in elevation view after I turn off the color?
