  1. I am making a range hood enclosure. I need to make the side supports smaller (less deep) at the bottom. See pics. I want to smoothly curve from bottom to top with two gentle curves. See side view pic. Any ideas? Thank you. hood enclosure side.pdf Hood Enclosure angle.pdf
  2. Where does it show total SF? I'm not seeing it. Also, can I select a room, like an odd shaped garage, and quickly see the area SF? I did it by creating a poly line around the room to make the same shape, but surely that is the long way. Thank you.
  3. I tried adding walls and making them invisible, but that removed the railing. I guess I can just draw in every piece. Was hoping it would be easier and faster. Thank you again. I will get on it. Thanks for your time.
  4. The slide is attached to the Porch section. The main room will be all screened with a door to the porch area, so it just looks all open. It is also the cantilevered section.
  5. I attached the plan Tree House.plan
  6. Made the X railings, the upper 45 degree braces, and the slide using the custom backsplash tool. Thanks again!! New issue. It won't let me put the X rails on the porch though. They disappear when I copy and move them to the porch rail. Any thoughts? B
  7. Thank you. As always, fast and great help to keep my projects going!
  8. Thanks, I forgot about that.
  9. Can anyone tell me how I can install a vertically angled framing member, like a 4x4 at a 45 deg angle from a post to a beam for decoration and support? Thanks.
  10. 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!!
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Thanks for all the replies. All helpful. I'm making progress!
  14. I tried the Help system and Knowledge Base already. No help.
  15. 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

  17. 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.
  18. 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....
  19. 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.
  20. Ya, what you did looks good. I'll try it out.. Thanks.
  21. 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?
