  1. @Andy Broomell It's the ONLY way I know or the "real" sill takes on the poche/hatch/fill of the jamb...it's the way the "factory" builds its windows. Sorry, it's a limitation of the current window. You could style up a couple of windows that work with "all the popular wall thickness" ūüôā Wes
  2. @Andy Broomell, here's the file...and your file too Window Jamb.vwx WindowQuestion_v2020 wg2.vwx
  3. @Andy Broomell...let me work on that...this gets pretty close Wes
  4. @Andy Broomellmaybe this... Wes WindowQuestion_v2020 wg.vwx
  5. @jcrock, I created a class called [Fat Line Class] and pointed the wall style (Bearing Wall 200mm) at it so it will use that attribute. Is this what you wanted? In this "simple" wall style that doesn't have components, you need to use the "Make All Attributes by Class" button as you've described but in the "Edit Wall Style" pane under the Insertion Options tab, you have to assign it TO A CLASS. For more complex wall styles that have multiple components, the Class in the Edit Wall Style pane (Insertion Options tab) becomes the CONTAINER CLASS and the attributes for the container class are assigned in the Wall Attributes pane (use the "Make All Attributes by Class" button.) You can then assign different attributes to your various components in the Component Edit pane (I've attached a screen shot that shows a wall style with multiple components) I've included your file with the adjustment Wes Villa No.2 wg.vwx
  6. @Boh...just FYI, when I first opened the site file, there was something "out in left field". I created a new file and referenced the Floor Plan file into it and it seemed to work just fine. I tried cropping out half the building and it still seemed to work fine..I DID NOT find the offending element "out in left field" Keep in mind, I'm on 2020. Wes
  7. @Boh, I'm trying to make this happen and can't get it to, I'm on 2020. I'll keep testing. Can you create a couple of simple files and post them? Wes
  8. @Frances, if I recall correctly, the best course of action is to go back to the Source file and move the objects there and then go to the target and update the reference. Wes
  9. @taoistlook at "No Stories, No Problem" to see if that works for you. Wes
  10. @e_calabrese. maybe post the file or a portion of the file? I tried wit ha simple square room and added a curved wall to one side and couldn't get it to fail? Wes
  11. @Frances, yep I think you're right...I've not seen that warning...perhaps in the designer series you don't get the warning. Your viewports should be unaffected. Try the reference sequence and see what you get... you can just set up a couple of "dummy" files for practice. The source file would need to have a a couple of layers such that the target file could "see" them. Let me know if you have issues and we'll find a solution that works for you. Wes
  12. @Frances, the Reference tab in the Organization Palette lets you select what kind of reference when you choose the "Settings" button. It's been awhile since I've seen Fundamentals so I'm not sure what the limitations are. In the image it's set up for Layer Import...you won't have the "Design layer viewport" option. Then select the "New" button in the lower left and navigate to the source file that you want to reference layers from. You'll then get a screen (see below) where you can select the layers in the source file. They will appear italicized in the target file Wes
  13. @vassen, after reading the other thread that's referred to here, you'll probably come to the conclusion that the most efficient way to create these objects and then be able to create drawings is to model what you can in order to get the form correct and then finish it up in 2D to get the graphics correct.

  14. Here's a bit on wall joining... Wall Joins.docx
