    Roof direction, suggestions, guidance

    It just looks closer. Guess I will fiddle around with it and try to get closer. Not sure about the entry... Nothing solved. I just appreciate the effort she (?) put into trying to help.

    Roof direction, suggestions, guidance

    I've been away from HD for a while, but I want to pick back up. I got the floor plan really pretty close, but was not having much luck with the roof. I'm going to add the plan and some pictures to see if anyone knows the best way to approach this. The back of the house (laundry, dining and storage) is an addition. The wall separating them from the rest of the house is actually an exterior wall (sided) with drywall attached. The only direct picture I have of the back is from when we had an ice storm, but the side views would give you a better idea of what they've done with the roof. The garage is also an addition, just kind of tacked on to the house with a totally different roof height. The front door entry presents another dilemma. Any suggestions would be appreciated. What is the best way for me to figure out the height and pitch of the roofs? Is there a visual approach (such as knowing the height to the window top, etc.)? Or will it be necessary to use a ladder and tape measure? It doesn't necessarily have to be exact, but it would be nice to get it close. Any suggestions? Questions? Any tips about ANYTHING else would be appreciated, also. Thanks. 1 Home Defaults Exterior BU.plan

    Thanks for all of the information.

    Camera Position when using zoom wheel

    I have the camera Height above floor set at 60". When using the mouse scroll wheel with either the Floor or Full Camera it does not hold that position. It's randomly moving up or down at varying increments. Is there any way to keep it steady, unless I orbit?

    Saving materials in user catalog

    Thanks for the info. I have moved some folders. I believe I have them set up now, so I won't need to move again. (I put them in a sync location.) I just did a test and that must have been what happened. The 2.63GB must be the items I got from the 3D Warehouse and in the beginning I didn't think much about adding large files. Since I am unable to see what is in that folder, I have no way to weed out the large ones. Maybe I should start over? Does anybody know how to see what's in that folder?

    Saving materials in user catalog

    Go to User Catalog, right click, New, Material. Usually... I suppose the missing ones I imported and then deleted the original file. Assuming if they showed up in the library browser, they'd be saved? So CA decided to allow different options to add materials, but only one method saves to the User Library? Interesting.

    Saving materials in user catalog

    Should it matter?

    Saving materials in user catalog

    When I add materials shouldn't they be saved in the User Library file? I've added several items and they come up missing. I've found out not to try to see what's in the User Library file....

    Always Show Dimensions, Change Dimension Font Style, Size

    There's a tool at the top. I've moved mine around, so I'm not sure what it should be. It looks like a ruler. When you hover it says "Manual Dimension", if you choose the down arrow it has options and there's one that says "Auto Exterior Dimensions".

    Tiled Windows

    I mean the program windows. I normally have been keeping them tabbed, rather than viewing the plan and the 3d at the same time.

    Tiled Windows

    If I have two windows side by side as in attachment, when/if I switch (move the cursor) from one window to the other, both windows temporarily go blank. Is this normal?

    Wall ends unfinished?

    Wall ends unfinished?

    I tried adding the paint color using a thickness of 1/16" and it seems to have solved the problem. Maybe?
