Any tutorials for the samples provided?

Recommended Posts

I'm keen to use some of the design features in the French Provincial sample; specifically the windows that rise into the roof plane with various dormer roofs.  Is there anything that accompanies this sample?

You might want to ask Chief sales/support directly.

Did you download the plan? The Barrel roof can only be used with Dormers, open the specification box and click the roof type.

 

For the Door(s) you will have use an Arch thats created by you or downloaded from 3d warehouse etc.

 

The KB tutorals are specific to what you want to create. You have to build the house first and then ask the "How do" questions.

 

If your interested take a peak here:

I've built the house already.  What I'm trying to do is create a window similar to that shown as the small left front second floor window with the barrel roof.  When I put the window into the wall (built upon the 1 1/2 floor process), the top of the window cuts into the roof plane.  This doesn't happen with the French Provincial sample.

 

Any suggestions?

Here is the image of the French Provincial window that I'm trying to create in my building.

Thanks...I will try that but it will make the room ceiling higher.

 

What guidance if I want a dormer that looks like the image attached?  Can this be done in HD Suite 2015?

 

Cheers!

Yes it can be done in Suite.     Use the break wall tool and Gable the front wall, raise the ceiling height, adjust the overhang both Eave and Gable.

Draw a small room where you want the dormer. Mark the front wall  as full gable. Raise the ceiling height in this room. Build the roof.
