    Cashing

    Thanks. Lots of valuable info. I will check out your suggestions. I'm also from Indiana. I believe I have found my problem. My plan has a ceiling mounted projector in it which was imported from a SketchUp model in .dae format. It was a BenQ projector. It had 40+ files attached to it. When I did a ortho or camera view HD Pro could not find those files. It search thru all 57,000 of my AppData files to find them; hence the 3-4 minute delay. HD Pro opens a window which list the files it cannot find. I deleted all of them. Now, the ortho or camera views are presented in less than 7 seconds. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions.

    Cashing

    David, this has nothing to do with crashing. My software works find. This is about cashing directories and the data they store.

    Cashing

    I'm sorry, I forgot to mention that the camera view or ortho displays just find after the long search for the materials, patterns, etc. I have a high end computer with an excellent video. I assume there are cashing directories to store all the data for textures, patterns, color, etc I changed computers a couple years ago and may have not transferred the data correctly. I thought there might be a tutorial on how to organize this data.

    Cashing

    How to manage cashing. Each time I open a plan and request an ortho or any camera view the system searches through what appears to be all the files on the C: drive to find the various materials, etc. This may take three to four minutes. How can this be corrected or managed? I have not been able to find anything online which addresses this problem.
  6. How do I fix this gap between the garage floor slab and the 6" portion of the stem wall. See attachment.
  7. I have an 8" foundation stem wall with the top portion 5.5" to match wall thickness for a garage. The concrete floor does not extend to the 5.5" wall; see image. How do I fix this?

    Wall Plates

    I have created an attic truss. It does not sit on top of the wall plate. I have double plates. It intersects the plate approx 1.25 Inches down from the top of the plate. Can I fix this?

    Window casing

    Attached image. Frame spacing is 5"; casing is 4-1/4" with 3/8" gap for caulking and seal per Pella. The nailing fin is 1-5/16".

    Window casing

    How do I add casing between two closely placed windows which are 5" frame to frame? When I place windows close together the casing goes around both windows but not between them.
  12. How do I show vinyl windows with nailing fins. Example: Jeld Wen or Pella. The trim for these windows set approx 3/8" from frame allowing for seal and caulking.

    cabinet doors

    Thanks. For my career I was a product designer; we were very detailed. It is sometime difficult to ignore the detail. But, you are right; it is not necessary for the cabinets. I was exporting the cabinets to AutoCad and noticed the error. I thought CA would have been more accurate in their presentation. I will follow your advice.

    cabinet doors

    Cabinet doors are usually spaced 3/16" to 1/4" from cabinet case or face frame due to the thickness of the quite closure button attached to the doors or drawer faces. CA spaces the door 1/16" from face frame. Is there a way to increase this distance to 3/16" or 1/4"? I am providing cabinet details to a cabinet maker; hence, reason for above request.

    Molding

    How do I show base molding on a pony wall? The pony wall I created shows the molding inside of the wall.
  16. Solved: I had a vaulted ceiling under the dormer. I removed it and added a floating dormer. See image. Then added the vaulted ceiling back. An auto dormer has walls which break thru the vaulted ceiling.
  17. If the dormer is exploded the individual walls stop at the roof plan and do not extend thru it.

    No Dormer walls

    New dormer problem for me. The walls are missing when I use either dormer function; see images. Any solutions for this?
  19. Thanks, I have used soffits for various other solutions; did not think to use it in this situation. It works, however, it is tedious.
  20. How do I display insulation batts between the ceiling joists in the attic in the doll house view and other types of views? The attached image shows the batts in the knee wall, but not the floor.

    Energy heel

    I have created an attic truss with an energy heel. It did not construct correctly, see image. I have made several attempts to correct this. I also verified this works for a standard truss. Does anyone have a solution?
