    Spacing multiple objects evenly

    OK, this should be so easy and I used to know how to do it. I've wasted 45 minutes trying to find it on the forum and on the videos. No luck, so I'm asking here. On HDP, how do I evenly space multiple objects like posts? I manually placed several posts and I want them all to be evenly spaced without doing the math myself manually. Thanks a bunch!!

    Change portion of driveway grade

    Wow, thanks for making the video. Like you said, just tinkering around and trying different things and checking with the camera after every change is the way to go. I think I have it softened much better. Good enough for the building department anyway. Thanks again DJP, Brian D Schluersburg PLAN Newest 2 OCT '18.plan

    Sloped terrain line

    Can I create a simple terrain line with the elevation different on each end? Also, can I create a rectangle area and set one side to one elevation and the other to a different elevation? Thanks a bunch, Brian D

    Can not place trusses

    2 Questions: 1. Building a simple detached, covered patio. I want to design the trusses to look like I want. I am trying to place the trusses and have the roof planes built and in place. I have posts and beams set up. I am getting this error....Could not create a roof truss at this location because no roof planes were found. Would you like to create a general framing member instead? I even tried to build regular exterior walls and place the trusses and still get the same error. What am I doing wrong? 2. I have a detached Garage with a second story. When I selected the Garage and then added the second floor, it added a second floor to my house. How do I stop that from happening? Thanks for any help. Schluersburg PLAN D OCT '18.plan

    Change portion of driveway grade

    I am building a driveway on a steep lot. I am trying to keep the slope to 12%. When the driveway turns at the switchback it is very steep. What is the best way to control that slope on my plan? I don't want it level, I just want to maintain a 12% or less grade. Obviously it naturally gets steep at the turn because it's turning straight down the steep slope. I also want to make that turn area wider than the rest of the driveway. Can I make a poly line area the shape I want and then convert that to a terrain area and then add elevation data to control the slope? Thank you for any help.

    Kitchen Cabinets

    Just the dimensions shown on one drawing. It's all just 3/4" material with open shelves, two drawers and 4 slide outs for shoes. I was able to print an elevation of it and just filled in the dimensions by hand. Would have been nice to have all the dimensions on the printed drawing though....

    Kitchen Cabinets

    I had the same question. I designed a custom walk-in closet with two built-ins...tweaking the measurements for drawers shelves and slide outs. Now I would like to print something that will show the dimensions for what I just spent a long time working on.

    I guess I'll try sculpting the roof to make a similar look and then use a copper material dropped on it... I got the files with the stainless and hopefully copper downloaded. Thanks!! Here is a screen shot of a home designed on Pro. How did they do the brick quoining next to the windows?
