    Generate Roof Plan with Metal Roof for Heat Tape Layout

    Yes, I made the same modification and it works. The Corrugated Roof material option runs the rib the wrong way. Glitch in the material default? Thanks.

    Generate Roof Plan with Metal Roof for Heat Tape Layout

    I want to visually show the heat tape supplier and the installer exactly where to put the heat tape. The heat tape is integral with a 16" metal panel clip that attaches to the major corrugations of the roof panel, to hide the heat tape. The clip is painted to match the roof panel. If I do a roof panel aerial view, the panel configurations seem to run the wrong direction. SFP-SCH-PBR Shingle Cable Holder Datasheet.pdf
  3. Having an issue getting a roof panel plan showing the metal roof corrugations so I can design a roof tape heating system. I built the cabin I designed on Home Designer Pro 2019 and its going through its first winter, 12' of snow so far, and the ice dam areas are showing up. How can I print a layout?

    Custom Color on a Standard Material


    Custom Color on a Standard Material

    How do I paint a standard metal roof panel a special color? I have a paint chip I want to match. I know how to paint but do not know the RGB Numbers. I have scanned in the chip into a JPEG.

    Sending Elevations to a Layout

    That makes sense. Thanks.

    Sending Elevations to a Layout

    Guess I figured it out myself, but it's a bit of a work around. I have to send images of the plan file to Layout and resize them individually. Kind of a guess on being to scale. Let me know if there is a more scientific way to do this. I am sure it will come up again?

    Sending Elevations to a Layout

    I am creating 18"x 24" pdf drawings for permit. When I place the North Elevation on a layout, then back to the plan, rotate it to show the East Elevation, and move it to the Layout, when I go to Print a PDF, both elevations default to the last one I moved to the Layout. How can I freeze the North Elevation in the Layout and then move the East Elevation and have them remain? I need these to scale, so I can't move an Image to the Layout, it's too big? Is it just a setting?

    Scale Standard Material From Library

    How do you scale standard material? I am using River Rock on my tall fireplace and all the round rock is way too large in Camera View. I would like it to be 33-50% of the generated size. Thanks.

    Gable and Attic Wall Framing not showing

    I know, brute force is an understatement. It's my first project with Pro, and it's been a work in process, design / build with the wife. Should I just delete all the roofs and let them auto build or should I just start over? I think I can generate good enough plans for permit from what I have but would like it to be better. Using Deck Plank for Tongue and Groove ceiling has proven to be a challenge at the hips and valley, its direction jumps around.

    Gable and Attic Wall Framing not showing

    Thanks a ton. You're the best.
  12. In the Orthographic Framing view, the gable wall framing is not showing. How do I keep some material layers from showing in this view as well? I also have two small attic wall sections I cannot get to show up. Any help? I have attached the file. Plans_4_Single_Slope_Entry_Slab_for_Contractor_Stairs_MBrm_1.plan
