    VR Compatibility

    Hello again Hubby is into the world of VR. Goal: take my home design, export it in a 3D file format for VR. Details....I have Suite 2021...if we upgrade to Architect, would there be the file format of FBX or STL/OBJ, which he is able convert to FBX....and if upgrading to architectural doesn't do it alone, would upgrading to Architect [or using current Suite 2021] provide the path for you to recommend an add on program you know is reliable that would enable him to import my designs into his VR world....? thanks again for any help

    3d painter and ceilings

    i am back.....hopefully, easy....when you go to the 3D image to use the painter, in the dollhouse view, obviously, no ceiling....is there a way to do all the ceilings at once with the 3D painter or, as i am doing now, you just go room to room......and, BTW, don't blame the brits for weirdness....i am a florida oldh ippie....65... married to a much more sensible brit and living near london....and far, far away from the current prez, thanks....have a good weekend

    Hmmmm...well, didn't delete it....all i did was push out an exterior wall to add square footage. If i undo it, the ttl sf reappears....it is weird...

    Sometimes when i move a wall to increase or decrease the room size. the total square footage that displays at the bottom of the floor plan just disappears.....i have been creating a new plan and copying the original one over but it would be a lot easier of i could bring the sf display back....can anyone tell me why it disappears when i move a wall and how to re-display it? thanks

    here is what i attempted t do...you are a professional, i am not so i am sure you will think me an idiot but i put the structural info from the house side by side with the garage numbers and tried to change in my drawing....seems not to be the right way to go HOUSEGARAGE.docx

    well, do i embarrass myself and show the plan or just call the garage a room and deduct the square footage.....i guess it depends on how my self-esteem is today.... I have just recreated the floor plan from scratch, rather than using the tools-rooms and going from the walls inward so i will see if that is better to post to illustrate the confusion. having may i ask, mr potter, a question for a reality build....are most garages, even when they house laundry areas and workshops, generally actually built at different levels normally...or do some homes have the same floor levels between the kitchen and exiting to the garage. I admit, my though process is that I trip....literally...on the step of our home s i exit the kitchen but it is a 150 year old terraced home in the uk an I am from florida and was always an apartment renter so I can not use past experience to do what a builder accepts as fairly normal. thanks for any input....i will upload the from scratch drawing if i figure out what exactly I should, image wise

    If you want the floors of the one story home and attached garage to be the same, how do you set the structure dimensions....does that make sense? i designed an attached garage to also house a workshop area and so, i want a continuous flow from interior to garage but if i do the camera view on the outside, the garage is off kilter to the house itself.... hope someone gets my weird question and can help! have a good weekend

    changing fabrics

    was curious if anyone knows why certain pieces of furniture will accept the fabric i add to user library and some wont....this specific would be the Haupt corner sofa....it changes solid colors based on the printed fabric but wont incorporate the print itself....and i wondered does it have to do with the fact it is a multi-seating sofa vs a chair? i was actually impressed i didn't give up....i thought the issue was with all my user library jpg and gif fabric swatches and almost deleted them all.....and it only took me 3 days to figure out that is good for me, by the way! have a good week

    garage floor height vs kitchen floor height

    Thanks, David, very much, for the guidance and amazingly, i think i get it!! will be thrilled to learn as all the designs i do have this issue... I really appreciate you taking the time out to reply....have a nice weekend warmly jackie
  14. after the professionals stop laughing at me, i wondered if someone could guide me.... the homes i lived in with garages either had a garage floor level with the kitchen door you entered through or just a slight step up and so that is what i am familiar with. when i design a home and add the garage and some of the grouped utility areas, the garage floor is afoot or more lower than the door you enter the home with and some of the workshop storage is floating at the height of the kitchen floor. is this altered only after creating the property perimeter and how or could someone tell me how to adjust the garage floor to match the rest of the home i designed and i am not ashamed to say i am called learning disabled and on the autism spectrum....sort of like the guys and amy on big bang theory except my husband is the genius....so it helps if you are kind and sort of give A>B>C> steps so i dont spend 2 weeks trying to figure it out.....you know, we are smart but thick!!! thanks for your time

    thanks, eric....yes, i was hoping i could create a single object.....someday i will own pro. i did sort of come up with the idea you present and you made it clearer so i will take the tip and do it again....askiing is the only way to learn and so, thanks!!
