  1. David Wow!!! Thanks for the MASTER CLASS!! I really learned so much in your tutorial... I have fixed the problem Thanks to You!! I reset my system back to default and made some of your suggestions... It is back Yay!!! Thanks so much for taking the time to explain all of your helpful suggestions.. I had issues in other plans I was working on, so I had to change back to default settings to clear up the render issues I was having and lo and behold it fixed the problem in this plan. You addressed some other issues I was havi
  2. @ Solver... I changed my signature... sorry for not doing this earlier when I changed programs... Thanks for the nudge... David - I also changed the emissive properties on my ceilings and walls and lights... It did not help resolve the problem completely... I know that it is a "user error" - I just don't know what I can do to fix it.. This is the reason I mentioned in my original post... that I know it was something that I turned on, just don't know what or how to turn off... The only emissive settings was on the ceilings and walls... even after changin
  3. Hi Guys, Need help with a file.. and distorted views and images (all settings). Note - it was not like this at all times, so something must have triggered this... Unfortunately, it happens in all files that are saved versions of this file. . I have checked all my render settings... image settings... compared the file to other files... This is the only one that is doing this.. I resaved under new name.. All files associated with this are not showing clearly like my other files... Can you look at this and tell me if there is something I am missing... The images are not rig

    HD2021

    New Feature found in HD Pro 2021 - Not in my HD Pro 2020 The new 2021 version - Standard View and PBR View is substantially better than my 2020 version when displaying paint colors and has more manufacturer selections In the past, I have deleted the old program before installing the new one. This time, I have them both still, for now.. and could not believe how much better colors show up for the Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams Catalogs In the 2021 version they have a color palette for Benjamin Moore which has all the current 2020 colors for the

    HD2021

    I am happy to say that I took the leap of faith and updated to HDPRO 2021. I am glad that I did.. My first blush into looking at the new release is that it looks identical to 2020 version. I was surprised and pleased at how much better the PBR renders look in 2021. I would have hoped that they would give us a little more features on the materials side, BUT.... I am REALLY Happy at how vastly different the PBR looks. My basic materials do look vastly improved.. Thanks Chief Architect for this feature, I am so happy about this. I am excited about this and look forward to using the

    HD2021

    Thanks @Dominic900and @HDbyJustin thanks to your feedback... I am taking the plunge... I was wondering about the new version HDPro 2021. I will be upgrading and will share my feedback. It is nice to see what other fellow more experienced users feel about the new version. Really appreciate your candid feedback. Look forward to upgrading and using the new features...
  7. Found it... I was using the wrong terminology - Duplicating floor. is the right terminology . Anyway - I will keep this up here in case anyone is looking for it...It is from 2015 - but still helped create the solution I was looking for.. Here is the link in case anyone in the future wants to know how to make a multi story building - just duplicate the floor.. https://www.homedesignersoftware.com/support/article/KB-00997/duplicating-another-floor.html Thanks to the Resources team for creating this... I typically find the answers after writing a questio
  8. Hi All.. I would like to know if anyone can point me in the direction of how to create a multi story apartment building. I have seen a few in the gallery of images and think they are great.. I am posting a sample plan of a condo unit for you to see - I have done the catwalk, and balcony. However, this is a single family structure with a pitched roof. I have been looking in the videos but they are for single family homes with multi floors. If you know of something for me to read or watch, I would be most appreciative. Here

    Great job and designs using HD Pro 2020
  10. This is amazing.. Beautiful colors... Definitely a work of art/
  11. Joann It worked!!! I never thought that pulling a cabinet into the wall would be the way to go. But it did work. Another simpler solution should be the corner base cabinet extended to the proper height.. But that stile just can't work.. This method works perfectly. I never would have imagined that the software would make one pull an object into the wall for a simple corner cabinet. I am not complaining.. just thankful that you chimed in on this.. I am happy that everyone is so helpful and gracious.. I would have never thoug
  12. Hi Guys, I have been thinking that Eric was using x11 - I was right - The partition method and shelves is something that I tried prior coming to Forum.. Thanks for the suggestion.. Keith - I have been toying around with the base option... funny that you mentioned this - I am tinkering, but think this may be the best option.. It is just getting rid of the style in the front that I am struggling with.. Thanks for the help.. I will let you all know if I am successful.. I sincerely appreciate everyone's help.. D-
  13. Eric The cabinet does not overlap the other. There seems to be a bounding box.. I know that there is something that I have not turned on.. I just don't know what it is. I know the answer lies in a tool in the bottom left corner, I have tried all the tools and they do not work. I have looked at it for over an hour... therefore, I came to the forum for advice. I have gone through all the videos and tutorials.. I know that it is something simple - BECAUSE you have shown me that it is possible..
  14. Eric That is what I would love to do.. How do I make them intersect? Your pic is perfect...
  15. I am trying to create a Tall Corner unit for a closet.. I would sincerely appreciate any help because I have tried every cabinet option. It seems like it should be doable.. Am I missing something or is this not possible with HD Pro 2020? Thanks for your help in advance D-
  16. Tiffany, There are several other apps on the market that people are using.. Some even come with the Bluetooth measuring devices such as Leica Disto is one of the biggest ones with the most floorplan integration and industry use. Bosch GLM is a strong contender also, Stanley Tools offers a Bluetooth and floorplan integration too. There are others out there on Amazon that offer Bluetooth and floorplan solutions. . I think that it was a business decision by Chief Architect, because so many other solutions are on the market. I know that this has been covered before in the
  17. @solver OMG!!! I am jumping for Joy!!! This is fabulous.... Thanks for sharing this tidbit... Note: I have been in this area before, but never toyed around with it in depth.. This is a Game Changer for my 2D plans... You ARE MY Hero!!! Thanks again for helping me understand more of the power of this program...
  18. @solver Question: Is there anyway to change the colors of the lines to make them more colorful like in the past? I know that I can add color to the inside of an area with all sorts of things... It is the exterior lines that are of interest to me. Thanks for your feedback
