  1. Suite doesn't have Slabs, and you cannot remove the toe kick from a base cabinet, but you can set the bottom of the cabinet below the surface it sits on to fake it.
  2. Did you play with blocks as a child? Even if you did not, think how this might be put together from various shapes. A big block for the base, a flat one for the cap, and a tall skinny one for the wood part. You have various shapes (Shapes in the Library, Soffits, even a base cabinet might work). Just need to learn the tools and objects that are available, and think how they may be used. I would also check the Library and the Bonus Catalogs available on the HD website for something pre made.

  7. Because HD lacks the ability to define layers in the roof structure, you will need to experiment with the tools it does have. You could use 2 roof planes, one on top of the other, for example. Knowing what it should look like -- not so much how it will be built will help with the best suggestions. How will it be trimmed, for example.
  8. For the best ideas, post an image of what you want to model.

  13. And for problems like this, always best to close the software and attach the plan file.

  20. The attachment is not a zip file and does not show the problem.
  21. Please post questions in Q&A. Tips & Techniques is where you share your tips and techniques. Please delete this thread via Moderator Actions near the top of the page.
  22. All we need are the walls. With one of the wall tools active -- any one will work, hold Shift and marquee around the 1st floor. Copy and paste into a new plan. If it's still too big, zip it.
