    Displaying cabinet dimensions in fractions of inches

    I'm a custom cabinet maker and always spec custom cabinets to fit the need rather than follow the dictates of industry convention. My fillers are typically incorporated into a stile thus become one with the cabinet W dimension. My current project is designing a narrow u-shaped galley kitchen where small fractions become significant. I have the option to manually create labels and will do that. I had to chuckle at the suggestion that one should purchase a $2,000 upgrade to solve a labeling issue. Thank you for your replies.
  2. My cabinets labels are displaying dimensions rounded to the nearest inch. For example a wall cabinet that is 33.5" wide and 36" tall displays as "W3436". I need my cabinet labels to display fractions without having to manually override the label for each cabinet. How do I do this?
  3. See attached...I'm trying to build a similar porch gable truss. I've got the posts and beam built....but can't find a build object that will assume the desired shape of the angled web members. Any ideas? This structure will be exposed exactly as seen in the photo.

    Creating a simple concrete patio

    Yeah he was plenty condescending, it was a short phone call.

    Creating a simple concrete patio

    I want to add a basic concrete patio off of the rear of the house. I've searched the Knowledge Base and Search and see plenty of discussions on an enclosed, or screened, or covered patio...build a room and make the walls invisible. My patio has no walls, no cover, and is a basic 4" thick concrete pad sitting on the dirt. Tech support said I should NOT be using Build Slab, but offered no solution other than build a room, invisible walls, etc.

    Furniture wood grain direction

    I'm not tracking with you. From what I can see the Wood Material is not a 3D object rather a finish that is applied to a 3D object. Are you suggesting that a wood material be applied to a 3D object such as a soffit or a shelf, grain oriented properly, and then somehow that object becomes the dresser top?

    David, see attached test plan. Rotate Material worked on the end table but not on the dresser. The only difference that I can see is that the dresser top has a wood edgeband, perhaps preventing grain rotation. Furniture Grain Example.plan

    Furniture wood grain direction

    Wood grain is running the wrong direction on numerous furniture faces. Is this correctable or just a software limitation? Unrealistic grain orientation cheapens down the 3D views. Is CA Premier wood grain orientation more realistic?
  9. Pilot error: When changing the soffit dimensions I transposed Width and Height. Sorry to have wasted your time.
  10. Don't know what you did differently. I cannot get it to show except that portion that falls outside the wall's vertical side lines.
  11. I should have mentioned that my "shelf" is a custom soffit (I couldn't find a shelf object). As I mentioned, the problem seems to be that it's a virtual half wall on the screen but behind the scenes it's really a full height interior wall.
  12. In he pic you can see that a 6" wide x 1.5" thick shelf centered on the top of a 4.5" half wall is only displaying the 3/4" portion of the shelf that extends beyond the half wall. It appears a half wall is in reality a full wall that is only pretending to be a half wall. How do I fix it so my shelf fully displays?

    Fixing exposed interior wall ends

    Rebooting my Mac fixed the problem. Memory issue I guess.

    Fixing exposed interior wall ends

    Take a look at the attached pic. The interior wall end is open. How do I draw it with a drywall finish on the end, same as the walls? thanks
