  1. The plan enclosed is a dumbed down version of a floor plan that has changed several times over time.One would expect the materials list to reflect those changes but it does not. For example: the metal siding has been changed from Rusted Corrugated (31" wide) to Standard 36" wide black PBR panels. The materials list doesn't reflect that change. What gives? If the software doesn't update the list automatically can I manually update? I have changed the default to the desired material but that did not change the list. 2.2023
  2. Figured as much but had to ask.
  3. What file types (if any) can be imported/modified and viewed in 3D using Home pro 22? I have a guy that has pdf's of a new home in 2d and needs to be able to show his plan to subdivision nosy nancy's in 3D. I am trying to avoid redrawing his entire plan in HD Pro.....As you all know i can export files to CA's cloud once his plans are complete.
  4. In the materials list HD Pro 2022 does not change one choice for another. Example: changing the corrugated siding shown to exposed siding (pole barn style) using the eye dropper results in no change in the material list. The new siding choice shows in 3D but list does not update. Not a huge deal but confusing.
  5. Just updated to HD2022 from 2020. Program tells me my Graphic "card" is not capable of 3D rendering. The card has the latest drivers and cannot be replaced because it is soldered to the Dell motherboard. Time to buy a PCE-I GPU to fit my SFF Dell Optiplex. The question is - what are the minimum GPU requirements to be able to view 3D content. I do not need the latest whiz bang gaming card and certainly ain't about to pay $1000 bucks for one. Does anyone have a Nvidia 1050TI 4G in use or how about a GTX 1650 4G? These under $200 retail cards are now selling for $250 to $350 due to shortages so i don't really want to pop for one just to find it won't do the job.

    Are Cross Sections and Elevations to scale depending on print settings - like 1/8 = 12 East Wall Elevation.pdf

    Shower drain

    Where did you find the drain itself? I'm using HD Pro as well but can't find the drain in the library....

    Thanks for that. Unfortunately my 2020 version doesn't have the build framing for selected object command in the toolbar. I'll look around and see if I can find it. Thanks to both you and Solver.

    Thought it would be something an expert would know off the top of their head. The weirdness started when I replaced a ICF wall (the Garage wall in question) with a standard 2x6 "siding -6" wall which was in place originally and showing the studs. I changed to ICF in the Wall Spec box and then later changed my mind and reverted to the stud wall. The zipped plan file is enclosed. Wall

    Make that just below the yellow garage wall

    The 2x6 wall "underneath" the garage wall (yellow)

    All you experts out there please excuse my temporary loss of cognizant mind functions but for the life of me I can't figure out how to view the studs in the wall circled. The rest of the plan shows stud locations and spacing and I'll be dammed if i can remember how i was able to enable that. What am I messing? Thanks in advance.

    Invisible ICF walls

    Obviously. Would like to see the ICF wall in the 3D framing view. They are part of the "framing" structure after all.

    Invisible ICF walls

    In HD Pro the ICF wall do not appear in 3D framing view. I've checked all the usual places to no avail. What am I missing? I'm wondering if it is because a solid ICF wall would hide some of the stick framing.
