  1. I had similar issues in HDPro 2022 getting the balance right - till I found this CA video. The commentary is done by a gentleman who is very good as a user and as an instructor - in my opinion. I have applied the settings discussed in the video with great success. It's well worth perseverance I feel. Physically Based Rendering with Real-Time Ray Tracing - Bing video Jeff.
  2. Solved by MichaelScott ? What was? Stated at top of page that the person who asked the question has solved the answer? Where and how sorry?
  3. Sorry - I don't see any difference between the two posted views using the suggested solution? I can see the sofit - but where is the new material you wanted to apply? Define the new number of materials to match the number of surfaces you have needing different finishes. Or just use the spray can material applicator where required. The top of your pony wall can be defined differently in your wall specification - can't it? Jeff.
  4. So use the cad tools or other model objects and make your own 'Gas Stub' and save it as an architectural bock/object for future re-use?? It's really not that hard. You'd have it done in 13 minutes - allowing for the paint to dry..
  5. Eric - I tried that - you can't edit an end panel in elevation as the tools are not available - you can change the width and height - but can't shape an arch into it - I tried. Must try a splashback instead. Extend it to the ceiling to fill in the vertical gap? I created a 20mm wide cupboard wall as a face panel and inserted an arched opening - which worked; But it all got too messy. A wall is a wall - not a cupboard in HDPro. Keen to see someones answer using available tools. Maybe some solid objects from the library shaped might work? PS - Soffit won't work either as I tried that also.
  6. Hi - I modelled something from your pics to see if I could basically - so it can be done; I show blockwork not brickwork walls - sorry; Need to sort out the brick coursing either side of the wall junction; Have a go using soffit for the beam and partition for the expansion seam; Good luck. Jeff.
  7. Hi - have you looked at the Reference Manual - pages 876-881 for a starter as I read the Index. It's usually a good place to start from. Cheers. Jeff.
  8. OK - so I use 'pro.'...successfully as a 'pro'.... Move the handrailing out of the way - build a wall in the opening and then shape it, viewing it in section/elevation, to the ceiling profile... Now install the handrailing back as it was. This could work I think. This is a suggested method....I dont like downloading users files.....otherwise I'd have a go for you with this as a solution. Cheers. Jeff.
  9. In the Full Camera Defaults - see Positioning and insert a wide angle 'field of view' - Standard is usually 55 degrees but you can set it as wide as you like. Works well for me. Jeff.
  10. That's a cool setting - nicely done whoever and wherever you are located.
  11. Export the dolls house 3D view as a .dxf - and go to a dxf to .svg converter app. Scalable Vector Graphics, .svg - files for web use . See DXF to SVG Converter. I have saved or exported dxf model views for my use but only in black and white line drawings. This may not suit your needs.
  12. I just use the spraygun (material painter) with the 'material painter plan mode' selected, and you can change the same parts of objects in one click? I do it all the time with window and door frames etc when deciding on which colour suits the design best; No need for extra layers.

    See page 182 in the Reference Manual - see Help..... - it does the mirror command so much better than just CAD. Jeff.
  14. The suggested answers don't really reflect the image you posted - your image shows a cut-away garage not a ramped access garage? Not sure how this solves the question's you had regarding 'subterranean garages'? Does it?

    I bought this library for a specific project - it's great value.
