  1. For some reason when exporting a DWG, the lines types, in the case dashed lines, are coming out as solid lines when viewed in auto cad. Is it a setting when exporting or something else? Thanks

    Function

    Does anyone one know the worksheet function needed to show the mounting height (Mtg. Height AFF) of an electrical fixture, receptacle or switch. I would like to add this to my schedule and cant seem to get it right. It would be nice if KBase had a list of these functions. thanks

    Dimensioning issue

    I have attached two images of a dimensioning issue, before and after. when I try to change the dimension by either entering it in the info pallet or directly on the dim. I get crazy results like Im showing here. I have tried to save and restart but no luck. Software is up to date as well. I would like to have my dimensions to face a frame and be associated but that is proving to be difficult as well. I can associate them to the inside corner with out to much trouble but when trying to do the same to a component, it is not working out. Any help on this would be appreciated.

    STAIR TOOL DATA PROBLEM

    I gave up on the arrows tool and just created a 2D symbol for each and dropped them in where needed. As for the notes I create a worksheet and place them where needed. I just opened a project to see what you were frustrated with and now I get it. I am having the same issue. With my file the editing handles show up on the lower level set, and I can move the notes around, but not on the upper level. I hope this helps.

    corrugated roof deck

    Hi What is the best way to create a built up roof with a corrugated deck? And has any one used the national BIM Library with any luck? When I bring in what i think should be a roof system. I just get what looks like solid block extrudes. See files attached. http://www.nationalbimlibrary.com/roofs?facet=gOBgfg&page=1

    Rendering Pipes

    Hi I would like to show my MEP in 3D. The Pipe Run tool seems to be only a 2D tool. is there a way to do this with out doing a lot of extruding. Ideally it would be nice for the Pipe Run tool to have the same 3D capabilities that the HVAC does. I have a very tight space and I want to make sure I can fit all my MEPs in. Thanks

    space labels not showing

    anyone have an idea why my space labels aren't showing up. I have checked the classes to make sure they weren't turned off as well as attributes. Thanks

    Textures rendering black

    Hi I am having an issue with rendering and I'm stumped. When i apply a texture to an object, in this case the flooring component of my slab, it renders black when in interior fast or final mode or any mode. It is fine in openGL and the objects I have placed from the resource pallet render fine. I have opened older files and they are doing the same as well as a new file with only one object in it. the texture doesn't seem to matter either. I have tried every combination of settings I can, in the rendering styles but no luck. any help would be greatly appreciated.
