  1. thanks.... I am just not an acronym kinda guy.
  2. OMG many ways to do this: click on wall and open the edit dialogue for it. First page check box for INVISIBLE Click on wall to highlight. Select Hidden icon thingy at bottom of page which is a slab looking white wall outlined by HIDDEN dashed line. All above covered under INVISIBLE WALL in help screen Easy way to get there would be to select wall and open edit dialogue scree and then hit HELP button lower right and it will tell you what everything does and lo an behold it tells you what invisible wall is.
  3. If you want that tobe 12" overhand open up each cabinet and set overhang to what you want for each side of cabinet. Industry norm seems to be 1" overhang front and 1/2" sides but make it what ya want. easy peasy
  4. Need file to see what you have entered for terrain contours, points etc that define terrain elevations. Have you rebuilt terrain? few tricks on there with some terrain features if you check manual and help screen.
  5. I know when you have a SLAB foundation and have brick veneer exterior walls the program (2024) will make a BRICK ledge but you have no control over depth nor width.
  6. but you could manually edit those roof planes to what you like in HDPRO
  7. didyou draw them as PONY walls? Where bottom is one type of exterior and the op is another based on dim you enter for rail hieght?
  8. my thread in the suggestion section:
  9. try using custom back splash or 3d rectangle object or soffit or terrain curb or many various things... choose one you like to work with.. but stick it to outside of foundation with thickness that represents the stone veneer you want to apply and then change material to stone you like.
  10. have floor plan? Are these walls colinear? Clicking on the wall "grips" (AUTOCAD TERM) and oving them is not the best way to maniupulate walls. Wall height is based on interior room ceiling and structural defaults. Having proper gable ends and wall design will ensure the gable end matches wall below and drawing in correctly. Attic walls are difficult to work with as they have specific job of filling vertical space between a floor and roof where program thinks they are needed. How did you do the roofs Manually or auto? What is end result you are looking for? Stone veneer for gable, pony wall to left of gable with same stone veneer? Also you may have SELECT ROOM first in 3D views as a default setting so it is selecting room not the wall. PLan would really help.

    Crown Molding

    in lieu of shelves and partitions. Just use a cabinet either full height or base or wall that suits. locate and then open editing dialogue for it. under box construction Decide cabinet type (face frame or frameless (which is like what you are drawing with partitions) Go to FRONT page. And edit it by removing doors then you have open cabinet with shelves. You can let it auto space shelves or in OPENING part manually edit shelves. now for your crown issue if you size a full cabinet or locate a wall cabinet so the top is at your ceiling height then the room crown will STOP and "be cut" at sides of cabinet box. If you want Crown to go around cabinet then go to cabinet molding page and add it so it lines up with room crown. Remember with crown though think how it attaches to cabinet box - need some flat surface and place to nail it on. no sense designing something that cannot be made. Play with cabinets as you can do many things if you get creative knowing what each menu page has on it and what it does,
  12. little more info please. Wall shape? what do you mean? and why?
  13. hard to see your screenshot but what is your MAIN LAYER? For USA where majority of houses made from wood framing (vertical studs, top & bottom Plates): majority HDPRO included wall types use the STUD layer as the main layer and is what dims are pulled from since well that is what the framers need build a house. Does not dimension from sheet rock or exterior brick veneer since they are attached to studs based on wall definition. I.e. Interior sheetrock direct to studs. Exterior brick holds the define air gap (varies here 1/2" to 2" range). So in your example with interior and exterior brick w/o studs the software does not know what to pull dims from, Also you just have a free standing wall without forming an enclosed room. Enclose the room and then check dims. As always you can make manual dims and then edit the end points of manual dims are pulled from. Again, ya gotta play with software to understand how it works.
  14. click on fence to highlight. Then click on the reverse layer command... this will nmove rails to opposite side for gate: open gate's object dialogue which is really just a DOOR dialogue. click reverse interior/exterior
