The case of the mysterious insulation

Recommended Posts

Can anyone explain why insulation is showing at the bottom of the central gables and also at the bottom of the far (right) gable and how I might get rid of it?  Just to explain further:  While the far wall is marked as a gable wall in the wall specifications (as is the chimney wall) it doesn't generate automatically like the chimney wall does in a doll house view (see 2nd image) and only appears as an automatically generated attic wall like the central gables when a full overview is selected.

 

For some reason I am unable to upload the plan.  I just get pop-ups saying that the upload failed.  Has something changed regarding plan uploads since I was last on here at the beginning of the year?

Hi Keith!

I think that gap is where the ceiling joists are supposed to be.  I don't know if there is an easy way for it to not be displayed.  :(

Belated thank you, Jo_Ann.  I've tried using the fill tools but they don't work.  Just another quirk of HD, I suppose.  And now I've gone and paid for the 2017 version even though I've never been entirely happy with the 2016 and the funny things it does that I never experienced before.

Happy New Year to you.

Hi Keith!

Happy New Year to you also!

I think I found a way to add/remove the ceiling joist display, quickly.

In the default settings, open the floor structure tab.

Edit the ceiling structure to 0.

This should be a quick easy way to avoid seeing that display, and reset it back to normal when your view changes.

If you are trying to model a SIP wall, then I might call the insulation showing a bug -- but it depends on how the panels are installed.
