    Gap above door

    I have a door and a window in place. The window fits the full opening of the wall but the door shows a gap above the top of the door. I have opened the window specification and the door specifications and the both looks similar. There is insulation wrap showing above the door and I wish to show brickwork. Tried changing most of the settings but cannot seems to correct it. Please help. Plan file attached. FinchfieldRdW47.plan

    Wall Piers

    I wish to create wall piers as shown in the image. The pier size is 325x100 projecting out from the wall. The external wall thickness is 275mm and I try to break the wall so I can increase the thickness of it but it does not work. Please help. Attached the video showing my attempts and the plan file AppletonCrs22.plan Wall Piers Video.mp4

    Shed roof structure

    The composition of the shed roof is joists overlaid by 18mm ply +125mm of insulation then another layer of ply and finished with felt. Is there a way of showing these construction material I the section elevation. I can do a workaround by increasing the rafter size and then draw cad lines and fills to show the construction. Is there a better way of detailing this, similar to wall construction?

    Snap settings

    I have my grid snap settings at 25mm but when I draw, the objects are often 12 or 13mm out which is half of 25mm. I can manually resize them but don't know what is causing it in the first place. I have attached a plan file and video recording for identifying the problem. I also have a wall sticking out from the loft plan and a shed roof corner sloping when it should not.

    Unwanted Framing in Layout sheet

    Thanks Eric but I have not drawn any framing and infact, I have not got to that stage yet. In my plan file- display options, every thing staring with framing is unchecked (hidden) but the framing still shows in the layout. In addition, a lot of the other details on elevations are not visible. Kindly have a look at the attached plan and the layout sheet above.

Also I would like to extend the soffit all the way to the wall and I cannot figure out how this can be done. Please help as I have spent sever hours trying to figure it out. ProbertRd121 Ext.

    Floor visible through wall

    Thanks David. I did attach a plan file.see above. I do have "boxed eaves" checked and that only draws about 225mm box and then the underside slopes along the rafter. With regards to the floor gap, I would like to find the cause. Playback see the attached file above.

    Overlapping Walls

    I keep getting a situation where the cavity wall overlaps the existing wall as shown on the left side of the image. The overlap will then also be displayed on the side elevation. Strangely, it only happens on one side. I have searched on the forum for overlapping walls but could not find anything. A help on this would be appreciated. AAPractice.plan

    Overlapping Walls

    Still having issue with overlapping walls. Eric referred me to a link but it has not resolved the problem. Further help would be appreciated.

    Overlapping Walls

    I'm afraid, it does not help. Cannot locate "framing reference to remove" in cavity wall or the solid wall. Tried with "through wall at end and start" ticked and it only makes the overlap longer. File added for demo. Plan1L.plan
  15. I have taken a normal Cross Section which shows roof framing but also the other items in the background. To avoid seeing items in the background, I took a backclipped section but this do not show any roof framing. Is there a work around this? StaffordRd577 Store.plan

    Fill Patterns to Cross Sections

    I have searched for this topic and have come across suggestions about using Cad to enhance the section. Can the fill patterns same as on the floor plan be applied to sections?
  18. ChiefJeet

    Fill Patterns to Cross Sections

    No. Back clipping section

    Fill Patterns to Cross Sections

    I think I got it. Side clipping section?

    Fill Patterns to Cross Sections

    Thank you Eric. The section in the clip is taken through the window but in the background, there is a solid fill, perhaps the door in the background. How can I clean the section so only entities the section is cutting across are visible and then I would be able to hatch the walls?. YareGrove5.plan

    Layout View Label

    In the Layout sheet, I cannot seems to move the label so the gap between the view border and the label is not so much. David di a video on this few years back where he could move it around with X premier. On my PC it does not allow me to move. Every time I select the label, it selects the whole view. Please help.

    Text, Notes

    I would like to ask the same question as Brewer. I understand that there are no custom layers but this layer (Text, Notes) is present in HD Pro. So what objects are programmed to go into this layer. I have tried Rich text, Call outs and all the entities listed under Cad but none goes into that layer. What is the properties of Notes?

    Wall not showing in elevation

    I have drawn a circular wall as shown in the clip below but it is invisible in the elevation. I have check the properties of the wall and it is not invisible. I have placed one window in the wall and it can be seen standing in iscolation. I have drawn gable roof over it and don't know if the roof is causing this issue. Please help. File attached.
