    Black line where walls meet ceiling

    Thanks. Why do I have this gap? It's only present in certain areas. I would assume that the walls should naturally meet the ceiling as I haven't made any custom dimension changes. Sorry, just a bit unsure the best way to solve the problem.

    Black line where walls meet ceiling

    Hi all. Hoping someone can shed some light on why I often get a black line where the walls meet the ceiling when I don't have a flat ceiling over a room? And the best way to remove it? Thanks.

    Tilt Out Cabinet Door

    Thanks Keith. Yes, I considered using a tilted shape to mimic the hopper. I will play around with it. Pro 2020 already has the ability to show cabinet doors both opened or closed

    Tilt Out Cabinet Door

    I understand your premise, however not everyone who uses the software does so to create 2D drawings for building purposes. I am an interior decorator and all of my clients are "non-professionals" who engage my services purely to visualise their designs. My shared work is all purely 3D. So, in my case there is a NEED to have a fully functional cabinet in 3D, particularly as this client has requested to see each of her proposed cabinets both opened and closed. It's not a huge issue and I know there are some work arounds, I just wanted to ask here first. Yes, it would be great to have Chief but at over 3K I simply can't afford it at the moment. Thank you.

    Tilt Out Cabinet Door

    Thanks. Yes, I still have Pro 2020. I can't justify the cost of all the constant upgrades in AUD, it's really expensive. So is this in Chief?

    Tilt Out Cabinet Door

    Hi all. Just wondering what would be the best way to create a tilt out cabinet door like this? Obviously it's not difficult to create a bottom hinged door, but what about the internals? Would I have to add something completely manually then adjust the angle each time I want to show the door open or closed? I am trying to make a potting cabinet with two soil containers like attached. Thanks so much.

    Help Please...Messy Corner Junction

    Hi all. Can anyone offer some assistance in helping me rectify this mess of a corner I've created. As you can see, nothing lines up quite right and there is roof showing through the wall. I've tried a few things though each change I make seems to impact something else, then I end up with more problems I don't know how to best resolve. Any advice greatly appreciated. Rebecca.plan

    Advanced Rendering Options (for interior design/decoration)

    Thank you so much. That's really helpful. I will take a look and see how it goes.
  10. I'm going to preface this by unashamedly admitting it may be a stupid question, however I'm asking in the hopes of being educated... Lately I've seen a lot of new interior design programs emerging which offer "4K" rendering options which look incredibly realistic. I'm really happy with Home Designer and its level of flexibility so don't wish to change at this stage, however am wondering if there is some kind of avenue to import models into a rendering generator which could produce more photo realistic images? I believe Chief has the power to produce slightly more realistic renders than Home Designer due to its ray tracing capability, however from everything I've seen it's still not comparable to some of the new programs I've learned about (and I sadly can't justify the expense of upgrading to Chief anyway). I feel I've become quite proficient with adapting lighting/shadows/materials etc. in order to make the most of what Home Designer offers, however it still feels lacking to me in regard to realism and ultimate "wow" factor (have attached a snippet from a recent design I've been working on). I've tried researching this though it's all over my head and very confusing for someone who is essentially fully self-taught and a stay-at-home mum designer! Any information or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Areas of recessed siding

    Thanks so much. I really appreciate your replies.

    Areas of recessed siding

    Sorry, I mainly use the program for interior decorating (so purely visual) and aren't very familiar with exteriors. I usually just paint materials on which doesn't effect thickness. So I need to set the wall material somewhere?

    Areas of recessed siding

    Thanks. Have you just off-set the walls? I can play around with this though I'm still not sure how to achieve the recessed siding areas above the ground level windows?

    Areas of recessed siding

    What is the best way to go about recreating this exterior in terms of the areas which are raised (brick) and recessed (siding)? Particularly the areas of siding above the lower ground windows. I originally drew it out roughly with regular straight exterior walls then realised when I went to apply materials that I'd missed the variation in depths. Played around with some options though just ended up making a mess! Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    Custom Doors on Cabinet

    Thanks so much. My sideways thinking wasn't working well. I ended up importing a bi-fold door symbol and using that though this is a much better method.
