  1. Thanks again, but I'm not using 2024. I'll contact support.
  2. Thanks, but I need to troubleshoot the materials for now. This file is just a test.
  3. No emissivity...File below, wouldn't let me attach here. This is the default "Charcoal Tiles" material.
  4. Thanks - tried that. Here's what happens when I set Shininess to "Dull": So, it seems to have almost no effect. Maybe actually makes it shinier. Another angle, not what I'd typically describe as "dull":
  5. I am having a hard time getting the Physically Based materials to look as expected. Here is a comparison of Standard and Physically based views of the same materials in a room with a single wide window providing light. The materials in Standard look much closer to the previews, and as expected. Even with some adjustments, I can't get the colors to look correct in Physically Based, as well as getting far too much reflectivity on something like floor tiles (applied as wainscot to test here): Standard: Physically based: Any suggestions? Thanks
  6. Hi David - I did a search before asking, and... However, I don't believe this searches library collection contents. Is there a way to do that?
  7. The default library has an undermount oval sink, but not rectangular, which we need. I did a search in the online library, but didn't find anything. Any suggestions? thanks
  8. Thanks Eric - Solved. I thought marqueeing (sp?) the plan & rotating it was the same thing, since I was rotating everything... but it's not.
  9. I rotated the plan 180 degrees (and got a warning regarding automatic dimension lines. Not sure why rotating something would require them being turned off. Before & after images shows the floor hatch is missing. I assume this shouldn't happen, but is there an alternative way to rotate an entire plan?
  10. Thanks David - actually, I need the ridge to be the same for both; I figured it out. Just need to manually enter and then lock the Ridge height, then manually enter pitch. It makes adjusting the ridge location kinda kludgy since it doesn't seem to understand what a ridge actually is (I'm sure Chief does) but it'll work.
  11. Is there a way to use automatic roof settings to allow an offset ridge with each side of the roof at equal pitches? Like this... but as if the low roof was elevated to match the ridge. thanks
  12. Just out of curiosity, have you somehow duplicated the object in place? It looks a lot like that type of artifact.
  13. I don't have a computer with the software loaded up with me. I did a search, but didn't find it.
  14. Thanks Keith. Do you happen to know if there's a way to see the contents without loading it?
  15. Been away for a while, and haven't looked into the updates since 2021. Curious because I needed to select different handrail profiles in the past. Also, I'm wondering if the ability to estimate decking, for example, in lengths that exist in the real world. Thanks
  16. Well, I'm here to ask the same question, 8 years later... Couldn't find a medicine cabinet today. Any updates?
  17. I realize that I could probably do this with three separate walls or something, but would like to do it in a single (window pass-through) step if possible.. How can I open this gap so that the opening goes all the way to the ceiling? (green line) thanks
  18. Just wondering if for kitchens, bathrooms, etc. if there is a way to automatically calculate square footage minus cabinet footprints, but to include appliance areas? thanks
  19. Been looking around but haven't figured anything out & have a bunch of them, so I'd rather not do it manually... I don't know what this type of angled detail is called. Sorry, image upload / code editing isn't working for me at the moment. I'll try again in a bit. Deep window with angled detail thanks!
