    Model Importing Trouble

    Thank you

    Model Importing Trouble

    (Maybe this has already been answered, so someone may direct me to the answer) In the past few weeks I've realised that I cannot import 3d models from warehouse. It's normally downloaded in .skp but HDA doesn't "recognise" it. In the pic I attach is the message I receive when I try to import it. Any ideas?

    UK Construction with Chief Architect or Home Designer Pro

    I'm not a professional but american-only objects/windows/doors etc are sometimes also a problem for me. I think an inclusion of european and international objects (e.g. door handles, major appliances, switches, outlets, doors, windows etc) would be REALLY appreciated in a next new catalogue.

    Creating new Library Items

    @ExpatWorkshop If the Miele line you have, is .skp extension, can you PLEASE somehow let me have it? PLEASE? I've only got some european models I'm not pleased with and you would me a huge favour.

    Windows 10 and Home Designer 2014

    A few weeks ago I updated my windows from 7 to 10, and HDA 2014 works PERFECTLY. I even run programmes I bought before the turn of the century and they work smoothly. I'm not kidding. I'm planning to update to HDPro 2016 but so far with HDA 2014 I haven't faced any trouble.

    Trouble with door hardware

    Maybe it's just a TrialVersion problem. It only happens with the curved handle and if I move it left or right so does the lock, but they remain not aligned. They don't move separately so that I can move this a little left and that a little right. Anyway, I'll let the Support Centre know and I'll come back with more news.

    Trouble with door hardware

    I downloaded HDPro 2016 Trial Verison some time ago to see if it's worth and found out something really disturbing going on with the doors. As seen in the pics I attach, the door handles and the locks are NOT aligned! The doors on the left of the (Crazy Doors) pic have the default (lever) handle and they are aligned with the locks. BUT the ones on the right with the curved handles are the crazy ones. This only happens with handles, not with knobs (Not crazy doors). In a nutshell, the curved handles do not align with the locks. Has anybody got any idea about if this gets fixed and how? (The pics are copied to the painting Win7 programme, since I can't export pics with Trial version. I normally use HDA2014 but am trying to learn to use Pro2016)

    upgrade to pro from Archetect

    Hm, I see. The fact is that I can't say I remember what happened when I upgraded from 2012 to 2014, but the truth is I didn't lose anyhting. One more question, since I'm quite stupid, what kind of files? Apart from the plans (which I plan sometime to erase), do you mean those containig textures and images?

    Udgrading

    Maybe this question has already been answered, but I'll give it a shot: I plan to upgrade from HDA 2014 to Pro 2016. I wonder if imported 3D models and textures will be "transferred" to the upgraded programme, or they' ll have to be manually moved. Will the manufacturer catalogues be upgraded as well? Also, in my computer there are some files from previously downloading older versions of HDA. After installing Pro 2016 is it OK to delete them? Or will this be a trouble for 2016?

    Wide single doors

    I've already written twice, in both posts, plus my signature that I use HOME DESIGNER ARCHITECTURAL 2014 and NOT 2015.

    Wide single doors

    @ Rookie65 Unfortunately any door wider than 1.20m becomes double. @ DavidJPotter I'm afraid there's no "Options" tab in HDA2014, unlike 2015, where there is. Anyway thank you both for answering. I HAVE tried with windows but they do not open. Until I upgrade to 2015, I'll have to live with either "permanently opened pocket doors" (=openings) or I'll have a look if I can draw windows and doors at the same position.

    Wide single doors

    I'm not sure if this has been answered somewhere in here, but is there a way to draw a wide door without it becoming a double one? As far as I know any door wider than somewhere around 1.20 m becomes double. I want a pocket door, say 1.80 m which is a solid one door hiding in the wall. Something like this instead of this Any ideas? I use Home Designer Architectural 2014.

    Soft without molding

    You can either use a cube from shapes or paint the molding invisible (CoreCatalog -> Materials -> Misc -> Opening (No Material))

    Material mixed with colour

    In HDA2014 in setting the default materials of the floor, is it possible to mix a material with a colour? For example, in floor covering mix a specific parquet material with, say, a specific brown colour? I know I can create a customised material, add it to the library and apply it to the room in the default settings. I also know I can do it in the 3D mode, but I wonder if there is a way to do it for all the rooms at the same time.
