  1. This whole experience has put me off buying VW. You can do an action 5 times in the same way with different gremlins affecting it every time.

    I am creating a house (this is an open book exam btw) ...successful all round except the rendering of roof appears underneath it, and the walls are rendered inside the cavity. So, I have grey walls with a nice brick (inside them) and a grey roof with lovely shingles (underneath). I have 1 and 1/2 hours left...if anyone can help I'd be eternally grateful.

    Frustrated VW student.

  2. Thank you, this helped so much. I am so grateful to the generosity of the experts on this site, it has saved my bacon a couple of times.

    I have managed to complete what I need to for the assignment, but the rendering of the house defaults to a really ugly brick and try as I might, I can't get it to change (not essential, but I'm a bit of a perfectionist and would like to change it to something that looks good before submitting!!).

    One further thing if I can impose...the site is sloped and we have created concrete pads and extruded them for the house and shed to sit on which was easy enough. However the path leading from the bottom of the site to the house needs to slope up the site rather than be flat (otherwise you'd have to step up onto the path from a great height down the bottom of the site...rather silly). I cannot figure out for the life of me how to do this...I've tried extrude, and tapered extrude and not having much luck. Any suggestions?


  3. I have a basic house to put on a plan. I've created a polygon and successfully turned the shape into walls. Now I've created a class with just a colour fill for external house walls and have ensured the walls are all selected, chosen the class, checked everywhere that I've got the class selected and nothing happens. Any suggestions?

    Also....what does Bot Z refer to? It might help me understand why my roof doesn't sit on the walls and my windows and doors float above the house!!


  4. Thank you Tamsin! I am SOOOOO impressed that this community board exists. I am currently a new learner of CAD and I'm so grateful that you guys have set this up. Hopefully my questions will move on from such basic ones as these!! :)
