    How to create this front gable

    I forgot to show you how to raise a gable, sorry but basically you form a room on the second floor, centered upon the second floor and then raise the ceiling height of that room to the height you intend to raise the gable. the exterior wall you then break off from the one long wall using the "Break Wall Tool"a and then program the selected segment and designate that wall segment via its Roof Tab to be a gable wall. The raised ceiling will cause the resulting gable to rise above the adjoining roof planes. DJP

    shower design

    Sorry, the trial version does not allow "saving" so no edited file is available but you can do as I did in the video easily. I did two videos because I forgot about some of your questions. Video # 1 Video #2 DJP

    Fretwork Ideas

    The key thing I missed was the "Blocking" the group, not blocked, they cannot be moved, just as shift-selected objects into the proper alignment with the wall, thanks. DJP

    Home Designer to Twin Motion

    Twin Motion requires imports to be in ".3ds or.dae" file format. I sometimes use Twin Motion to do animations and renderings but I also use Chief Architect Premier that has the ability to export these file formats. Currently no Home Designer title has this ability. I am sorry. DJP

    Fretwork Ideas

    I tried emulating the fretting using the black splash tool in my Pro 2021 trial version with no success. Could you please do a video on how to successfully emulate that Architectural detail using only the back splash tool please using HD Pro? DJP

    Foundations under fences?

    Your images do NOT show any foundation being created by having drawn the fence walls. Make sure by checking these fence walls specification dialog's - Foundation Tab that they are not marked "Foundation walls" and as fences they should be marked on their "General Tab" -No Room Define, either of these settings might cause those fences to show "foundation" attributes. Otherwise, share a copy of your plan file so others can look, see and report back or post some images that actually show your complaint. DJP
