  1. Hi, I am using the street tool and I am trying to make a small curve on one end of the street and create a roundabout on the other end but the break tool is not working on the street for me. Is anyone else having this issue using Home Designer Pro 2021? I would use the driveway tool but the clients want the street and driveway different materials. Please send any recommendations you have, thank you for your help.
  2. I switched some of the settings and I still received the same results. Does Home Designer Pro 2021, even allow me to create night time walkthroughs ?
  3. Hi, my name is James Simmons. I am creating a outdoor walkthrough animation video. In my camera view my lights are on but, they are not on during my walkthrough. Does it have to be night for the lights to be on during walkthrough animations? The way I get my lights to turn on is through my lights settings and I am creating this in the standard rendering style. Thank you for your assistance
  4. Hi, my name is James Simmons. My client wants a corner cabinet on the corner of the island but the countertops are not touching, When I try to add to the back and right of the countertop, the software keeps the gab in-between the countertop. Thank you for your help Thank you James Simmons Home Designer Pro 2021

  7. Hi, I am trying to create a sloping retaining wall that is very similar to this image below. The issue that I am having is that after I put the breaks in the wall, then I go into the elevation view and I start to bring the wall height down but the wall keeps connecting to each other despite that I already put a break in the wall. I have tried this on the retaining wall, exterior wall, interior wall and all of there curved walls. The retaining wall that I am designing in my plan is a curved retaining wall. Thank you for your assistance
  8. Hi, this is James Simmons. I would like your opinion on something @solver@DavidJPotter. So recently I have been exporting pictures for a project I have finished and last night I was playing around with the resolution, width and height of exporting a image. I want to get the best resolution out of my images without making them too big in width and height. I normally set the width to 1920 and resolution to 900.0 but after playing around I noticed that when I set my width to 3,840 and 9,000 in resolution, I got the best resolution picture out of all of them I have tried. I got 3,840 after multiplying 1,920 times 2 and I did create some images that had a bigger width but when I upgraded my resolution, It didn't seem like I was getting a better resolution picture. When you export images what width and resolution do you set it to get the best resolution for your images? Thank you
  9. I have kinda found a solution, I switched the door to a panel but I cannot place a knob to the cabinet
  10. Hi, I have been trying to remove the lines in the cabinets for the elevation views ( image of line in screenshot 277 ). I quickly looked through some of the chief webinars and I spotted a kitchen elevation without the lines in screenshot 279. I have played around with the settings but I couldn't find anyway to change this, How would I remove the lines ? Thank you for your help Happy Holidays
  11. Thank you @solver, this should work
  12. @solver, yes the wall is curved from the top to the bottom. I looked up curved wall in the help section and the closes article I got was " Editing Straight/Curved Wall Combinations " but that article shows how to make a curved wall for the ceiling.

    Porch Roof

    Try to edit in 2D - open for specification - go to materials and edit it from there To add a corner trim click the icon seen in the image and video below To change the color go into 3D ( At the top toolbar ) there is this icon that has three colors click that icon, then click the material you want to change, then go to texture - material color - check the box that says blend with texture - then click what color you want it to be
  15. @DavidJPotter I'll try that. For my next project I just had numerous areas where some parts of the house where elevated and I wanted to see if I could lock the foundation height from coming from the terrain but its ok @solver I have done that and as I was playing around with it yesterday and I noticed in the 3D view I could pull down the front exterior material over the foundation wall - for anyone new Thank you both
  16. Hi, over the past few days I have been playing around on how to adjust the wall and foundation height. I feel like I have a good understanding on how to edit each but I am having one issue. I want to edit ( raise the 1st floor height ) but the foundation also rises. So my question is there a way to lock the height of foundation so I can edit the 1st floor without the foundation rising ? The reason I want to do this is because I want to keep the foundation under the terrain. Also some of my notes I took are below to help anyone new out ↴ Thank you James Simmons ( To change wall height - open specification - structure - change floor “ To match terrain height - with foundation deleted -7” ) To change Foundation height ( Which changes wall height ) - open specification - structure - change ceiling height - -19” When switched to garage - open specification for the room - structure - floor - -16” - 18” is better To have floor at terrain ground level - structure - floor - -28”
  17. Thank you @solver , I did play with the archs but for some weird reason I was mostly messing around with the casing not the arch. But that explains it, thank you I appreciate you

    Doors No.2

    Hi, I have just purchased Doors No.2 from the 3D library. How do I curve the exterior and interior casing like the middle door in image shown ? Do I have to do anything to the wall as well ? Also I am using home designer pro 2021 Thank you James Simmons
  19. Thank you @davidstvz and @DavidJPotter I found out what my issue was. For the Exterior Path lights they were only showing light inside of the houses until I was messing around for a few hours and I switched the exterior path lights level to zero and then the lights would show. Also thank you to @davidstvz for the toggle sunlight tip because I was just turning down the sunlight and it wasn't satisfying me. If there is anyone who needs more help here are two articles to help with exterior lighting. Go down to Manage Lights https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-00777/working-with-light-sources.html
  20. Hey, sorry about that last roof post I am still new to this software. I am noticing that my exterior lights aren't turning on when I am outside of the house, how do I fix this? Also is there a night time mode where I can change the lighting? Thank you Home Designer Pro 2021
