  1. I would like to create a rotating 3D video of a clients home exterior but I can't figure out how to do this. I have seen the model rotate on it's own but only unintentionally and I have no idea how this happened unfortunately. Ideally I would be able to send the video to a client to help them envision their home. Thanks!
  2. Exterior dimensions of the main floor to framing and foundation need to match. I removed the pony wall feature which did make the dimensions match so thank you for suggesting that the brick depth is causing the difference in dimensions. For future reference, I would like to know how to be able to align the exterior framing dimension with the foundation exterior dimension regardless of brick or stonework present. Thanks!
  3. I understand that the brick adds width but I have the default auto exterior dimension set to wall dimension layer so why would it add the depth of the brick to the foundation? My choices for alignment are: outer surface, main layer outside (current selection), wall center, main layer inside and inner surface.
  4. I tried to attach the plan but I believe the plan is too large-almost 3000 sq ft home with foundation and attic plans. Is there another way to attach the plan?
  5. I'm using Home Designer Pro 2022 My foundation exterior dimensions are 4 1/2" wider than my main floor exterior dimensions. Main floor exterior walls are 5 1/2" framing, wall type siding 6 selection and listed as 6 15/16" W after adding drywall, siding and OSB. Foundation walls are 8". Main floor exterior walls are pony walls with wall type brick 6 selection and set to main layer outside for alignment. The builder would like the exterior dimensions on the foundation to match those on the main floor. I have dimensions default auto exterior set to wall dimension layer. Is there a way to specify where the foundation wall sits relative to the main floor exterior walls above? Could this positioning be causing the discrepancy or something else?
  6. I am using Home Designer Pro 2022 and have a finished plan that my client is wondering if I can convert or somehow export to a CAD file so that their landscape designer can build on using CAD. Is there a way to convert or export a plan file or perhaps the floorplans and/or elevation views to be used with CAD? Thanks, Katherine
  7. I am using Home Designer Pro 2022 and am wondering if there is a way to add auto exterior dimensions to an orthographic full overhead view of a home with roof planes using standard, vector or technical illustration rendering techniques? Also open to other ways to add dimensions to the aerial view of the home with solid roof planes shown. This is for landscaping purposes. Client will be adding an arbor, pond and other structural landscape features and would like to see the aerial view of the home exterior with exterior dimensions only to position the structural landscape features appropriately. File is too large to attach. Thanks!
  8. Thanks-I am also wondering if I can create a window schedule? List of window style and sizes used in the plan? I searched the forum for window schedule but didn't see anything. I did find a video on how to increase the layout sheet size under the print setting, took some dragging and resizing of the layout boxes but worked! Thanks
  9. I am using Home Designer Pro 2022 and am currently seeing a 18" x 24" layout sheet for prints. The home I am designing does not fit on this sheet at 1:4 scale. How can I increase the layout sheet size? Also, is there a way to have exterior dimensions from outside corner to center of window and door openings only and ignore interior walls? My plan is 32 MB and won't allow me to attach. Thanks! MARTIN FLOORPLAN FINAL.layout
  10. One more question, under dimension defaults, locate auto exterior, walls, what is the difference between surfaces and main layer only? Is it just filling in the exterior walls with shading for surfaces and the outline for main layer only?
  11. Under layer display options, does "walls, main layer only" specify the stud or drywall layer?
  12. I'm using Home Designer Pro 2022 and wondering how to get auto interior dimensions displayed using "outside" dimensions meaning stud to stud, not including wall board. I tried to attach the plan but it said it was over 14MB Thanks
  13. I am trying to add an insulation pattern to an exterior wall on a cross section merely to show that the home is insulated. Any suggestions on how to show the wall "filled" with an insulation like pattern in the cross section view? Can I apply this "fill" pattern while in the cross section camera?
