  1. If I understand your question, you can always us Transform/Replicate Object to do 90% of the work. It will do the equal spacing for you, just not the calculations.
  2. I created a single base cabinet 12” wide, 24” deep, and 78” high in the General panel of the Base Cabinet Specification. I removed the countertop (by setting the countertop thickness to 0”). This created a tall cabinet with a door and a drawer on top. In the cabinet preview panel (the window on the right that shows what the cabinet would look like, I selected the toe kick. This activated the Front panel and allowed me to remove it by setting the Item Height to 0”. I selected and deleted the drawer. I selected the tall door and changed it to a drawer. With the drawer still se
  3. I created three pullout pantries next to each other. In one, I showed it open with food. In the next I showed it open without food, and in the last one I showed it closed. The only issue I have is that if I try to use the one with food and then close the drawer, the food doesn’t go with the drawer and just “floats” outside the cabinet. I don't know if this helps.
  4. Here's one I found and have used... Turntable.skp
  5. JoAnn, Thanks for all your help. I never would have figured out that I had to extend the 0" elevation cutout to eliminate the spikes. I tried everything I could think of, but nothing worked. I'm glad you solved that mystery for me. I really like your updated version of your plan. It looks great. I'll continue to work on mine and will post a picture of the project when it's finished. Thanks again! Tom
  6. I am slowly but surely figuring some of this terrain stuff out. I opened the plan you generated and opened up the various terrain objects to see what they were and what settings you used. Since you said the order of adding objects didn’t matter, I started by adding two retaining walls on either side of the driveway. Then I added a small Elevation Region and got the “terrain spikes” shown below. Terrain Trial.plan Finally, I added a Rectangular Feature like you did to cover the area of the driveway. This didn’t remove the spikes as you can see.
  7. I'm working my way through this with a simple design. I have the sloping front now and a "cutout" for the driveway, but my driveway area is flat. How did you slope the driveway?
  8. JoAnn, Wow!! What a lot of work you did for me. Thank you so much. I have gone through the file quickly and I am wondering about the order of doing things. Did you create the front slope to the road across the entire terrain first? I was able to reproduce the front slope by drawing two elevation lines across the front of the terrain and setting one to -75" and the one closest to the road at -150". Then I added an elevation region covering the rest of the property and setting that to -20". That worked for the front slope!! Now I am wondering how you did the drivew
  9. JoAnn, thanks for pointing me to the Knowledge Base article on Using Terrain Features and Regions. I have reviewed that article before, but I thought I would take another look at it, because obviously I’m missing something important. I tried to take my plan and apply the steps in the article, but right off the bat I could see differences in what they are trying to do and what I want. I have so many questions, I don’t quite know where to start. But let me just start by walking through what I did and the results I got from those steps. My first objective was to show the hill
  10. David, Thanks for the response. I have reviewed the Knowledge Base and have studied the walkout basement design. The difference between what they are creating and my design is that they have a uniform slope from front to back. The design I am trying to model has a level portion in front of most of the house, then a slope to the road, with a large "cutout" at road level for the driveway. Then I have to add the retaining walls between the level portion and the driveway, not to mention that the driveway also slopes. I am just stumped about how to get started. I'll keep looking i
  11. I am modeling the house shown in the photograph below. The main floor of the house sits above the road about 12-15 feet. The driveway is sloped upward a couple of feet from the road to the garage. I want to put in the terrain, but I am having a few problems. I have read the chapters on terrain and watched all the videos, but I can’t figure out how to create the sloped driveway 12 feet below the main terrain perimeter. Another issue that is related is that when I add the road and open the Road Specification dialog box, I don’t see a way to change the elevati
  12. I purchased Home Designer Architectural 2019 in June of 2018. After working with it for a couple of months and reading about the additional features available in Home Designer Pro, I upgraded to Home Designer Pro 2019 in August of 2018. When I upgraded, I did not purchase a backup DVD. I would now like to buy a backup DVD for the Home Designer Pro, but I could not see on your website how to buy it after having purchased the main software. Can you please tell me how I would go about purchasing the backup DVD? Thank you!
