  1. I found that using a half-wall with shelves or custom countertops may be the way to go, since there are bends in the walls & I need overhangs on one of the ends that I can't do with a wall tool. Not super accurate but relatively close and fast.
  2. Thanks Eric - trying it out now. I think it'll have to be the "wall" version since my wall has 45 degree bends in it...
  3. Trying to adjust a rail on a "Straight Half Wall" (which apparently is a railing)... however, making adjustments in the Rail Profiles settings has no effect. Here, you can see I changed the Width to 10" and the Height to 4", but it's not reflected either in the preview or in the model. Is this actually possible to do?
  4. Thought it might be something like that Here's a closer image of the area where the walls meet. Regarding accuracy, this is primarily for visualization, though the more accurate I can be, the better.
  5. Thanks Dennis - still having trouble with the area where the low wall meets the high wall - would you mind elaborating a bit?
  6. Would be interested to see how you did this. I've tried but... maybe that's why you commented about accuracy. I'm not sure how you set up the walls.
  7. Hi Eric, I'd like to be able to use the wall tools as intended so as to be able to include trim, windows, openings, etc.... is there a way to prevent walls from joining, or to change the join order?
  8. Hi - Thanks everyone - I've made some progress using walls and soffits, but have a few challenges. Starting with walls/soffits only for walls... 1) I can't figure out how to get the low wall to join the high wall without the tall wall becoming angled on the end. I want the opposite to happen. (See pic) 2) I assume I would draw soffits individually, adjust size / angle after drawing, then move them manually? 2a) Is there a way to get the soffits to match up exactly to the walls below?\ 3) Assume countertops work the same way as the soffits? thanks
  9. Hi David - I did, actually... the settings say angle snaps are 15 degrees, but for some reason, I'm getting something like 8 snaps through a 90 degree angle. I'll have to look again when I'm back at that computer to see if there's something I missed. I thought there was a snap-lock modifier key to hold down to limit it to 45 degree snaps, but I may be thinking of other software.
  10. Hey Eric- Two main issues - 1) can't get corners at the 45s accurate, and 2) can't figure out how to create accurate openings. I see below (above) a few people have modeled this, so I'll move ahead...
  11. I've been trying to figure out how to (successfully) model our bar area... without going into everything I've tried, I'm posting an image below. Bonus points for the little niche above the TV alcove [edit] I'm also having trouble keeping the 45˚ segments behaving...
  12. Probably. I've found a bunch of things that should be present in the Designer series (at least, Home Designer Pro) that are included in the Chief Architect software, such as round railings. Assigning objects to layers and generally creating/working with layers is 101-level stuff. Should be included.
  13. Hi all, Haven't had to do this before & thought it would be easy, but I've been unable to find a way to lock and / or hide a image I've imported to use as a floorplan reference. Turning off the visibility of Images doesn't do anything... Any help appreciated.
  14. Did these pretty quickly in Blender. I think there's probably a relatively straightforward way to create a number of objects that fit together more like cut stones.
