  1. mr. anderson, thanks, but it doesn't work for me, perhaps i am not getting it right. i selected both windows, and made a symbol out of the two, the black line is still there. and since it is a symbol made up of parametric objects, i can not edit the lines in the symbol to get rid the black line. help thanks.
  2. Hello thanks for helping, i have not being able to do this : i want to put an operable window next to a large fixed window. (just like a transom and a spring turned 90 degrees), but, there is no parameter for such... so i have tried to combine a normal casement window right next to a fixed window, but, i get a thick black line at the end of each unit does anyone know how to do this? thanks.
  3. also, my computer is very stable, not one single crash within months. if it is a problem with the video card or ram, it should show in other applications too right? but there is no sign of such either...
  4. thanks vitanaut the mouse can scroll every where else except in the palettes: object info palette, layer diaologue box, class dialogue box... etc. but it does scroll in the model view dialogue box ?! for the scroll "button" within the object info palette, most of the times it works, sometimes it doesn't. just like the layers/show/snap/modify others command.

  5. the object info palette is jittery and unscrollable. working with window objects, the scroll button sometimes would not work. could this be attributed to insufficient ram (640 mb/g4/panther) ? also, wouldn't it be nice to be able to scroll with the scroll wheel? thanks.
  6. Hi! Thanks for your help. I am not sure how to approach the continuous footing in architect. do you put both the foundation wall and the footing in the same mod-foundation layer? if i created the footing with an extrusion, it would not print as dashed line. if i created it as a very short wall, it would cover the foundation wall. if i made it without the fill, it would not render... i ended up having to draw it twice, one as a 3d for the model, one for the 2d with dashed line.. i must be doing something wrong! please show me how. thanks
  7. Thank you so much Kevin!
  8. hello, thanks for helping how do i change the placement of the building on the print area? can i move the paper instead of the building? thanks!

    thank you all for your help! so far, i am not having much success. the reflectivity is... well too many variables to adjsut and quite frankly, i have no idea what do they stand for. i have been trying them blindly, managed to get them paler, not as dark, but still nothing that looks like aluminum. the silver or silver plate finish does get it to look brighter, but still doesn't look metallic. the idea of a billborad is very interesting, perhaps the problem is with the fact that the surrounding is pure white. i wonder how a piece of aluminum will look like in a uniformly lit white room. but again, donald judd's sculpture in museums still look very metallic. i just wish that i have enough time to experiment with all that is there a book or a site that teaches all these tricks? you know, just like the photoshop books... thanks!
  11. for clarification, i can not find the light tool on the 3D tools palette. architect 10.5.1 beta for os 10.3 thanks. [ 12-16-2003, 11:43 AM: Message edited by: stephanie ]
  12. ok, this is really silly, i can not find the light tool. could anyone point it to me please? thanks. another thing, what is the incadescent fixture object? is it a 2d symbol? or is it a hybrid? and does it light up the model? the exact same questions for the light tool. thanks. thanks for helping!
