  1. I have a Canvas Structure scanner. I hoped to use it for modeling kitchen or closet spaces to model cabinets and organizers. It is absolute garbage, and has never proven useful for me even in 3D mapping simple table top objects. I could easily see this working effectively if properly done. I believe for not much more than the add-on costs for the Canvas output I can just call the local real estate photography pro to bring over his Matterport and be done with it. @jeff prince what drone are you using? Been meaning to get an Anafi Work myself which includes 1 year of Pix4D.
  2. Thanks for the reply. It seems if I let the PIO make a panel shutter it is OK, but when I select custom profile the profile populates the glazing. Story Board.vwx
  3. I suppose this is a symbol issue as it seems the shutter symbol is being placed in the glazing in 2D.
  4. I have spent way too much time experimenting ways to solve a strange rendering issue I am having. When I add shutters to windows the shutter profile renders in the window opening in Hidden Line which I want to use my Elevation plans.I feel like I have somehow done this but I have not a clue how or how to resolve it.
  5. Just make/save a new "unstyled" wall style and put in Favorites. #thewallwithoutstyle.
  6. Hello How do I integrate a turned gable and have the siding continue up beyond the overhang (removing the overhang between the eaves)? I have simply drawn a rectangle here to just have the turned roof to mimic the look the best I can for now. Thanks Jack
  7. Draw path long. Use a rectangle prism to subtract solid to make flat surface across both legs.
  8. Appreciate your input, very relevant. Although, a convoluted process,, I like the output I got using the actual slab tool with modifiers. Site conditions may cause us to add more grade beams or even supporting piers but I'm OK with noodling that through on site at time of build. I'd prefer they enhance the slab tool for sloping slabs that are not used for roofs with drains. For now, I just changed the, drainage notes to a class that is invisible to get rid of the drain info on my slab that has no drains.
  9. This can be so frustrating and makes your head spin and wonder if trying to model 3D to develop your 2D documents is worth the learning curve. Even tho you have an "Unstyled" wall click on that STYLE in the Object Info Palette end edit the wall style. Go into Edit for each component of the wall composition and set the top and bottom to RELATIVE TO WALL. I would then save that style with a name that will be a resource for the wall but I think it will work as the current "unstyled" wall type (even without saving) and allow you to set the height and bottom there in the Object info palette shown on your screen shot.
  10. Howdy Wes and Thank you. I dare say a video instruction series of just developing that model, maybe with little more complexity, could be the basis of a great "Model Set-up" instruction asset. As well as a Design Summit class.
  11. Yes. I feel University is a great start and needed, but a mess in many aspects. Progress tracking, version organization and relevance, etc.
  12. I would suggest that This "single-slope" drainage element should be better documented in the app-help section. Admittedly, it might be plain as day but I couldn't find it. Its also a little convoluted to pull off, but glad to have it. I need this for every house I draw with a garage. Thanks for the video.
  13. Hello! Thank you both. @rDesign. That movie is what I was looking for. I've spent quite a while experimenting and not getting there by 2 drains, then deleting them. @Matt Panzer This should be in the app-help (If it's there I didn't find it).
  14. Forgive me for such an elementary question. Can I insert a Slab and have it slope ie: a garage slab that drains towards the garage opening? On another note can a depression or recess of difference in thickness be made? Say for an elevator pit, or for stepped-down space or garage entrance weather lip. Grazie, thanks, merci
