    Hi Conrad,

    As a note , it is the same lake house and thier M. Bath.  I wanted the owners to be able to get a feel for not only the layout but what they are looking down and out at from the bath.

    So, I used artistic freedom 🙂  The entry wall from the M Bedroom, along with walls facing the lake have been removed (MBed entry wall) and Lake walls. You can see a bump down in lake walls where large a window at soaking tub will be and where one of the two windows in MBedrm will be.

    I then used the Mirror to reflect the shower and reduced the privacy wall at the tankless toilet. Angled stub wall there is really full height, for privacy.

    There just wasn’t any other view that allowed them to see all at once.

    EDIT …. top view with walls in place attached

    Conrad,

    Under, Columns, are two tapered columns that you can resize to get a similar result.

    Add a masonry cap on top to  replace the ones built into the tapered columns to get the concrete material cap.

    MDD , anyone

     

    Here is your bld.  As I said the roof isn’t exactly as you had it laid out .  Pay attention to the roof breaks. They occur at both Gable ends to get Turret and right HIP to work.  Just a simple break and then pull out the Gable so Hip can form.

    On the right and left of the double pitch porch / 12 12 roof you will see the two ‘alleyway’ rectangles. Those are two breaks which form a new arrow. You can spread them apart when creating , set 3 to 1/8″ overhang , two on right and left and the one horizontal little section.

    Once set, you can drag the porch dbl pitch towards each other, but do not let the overhangs touch, this will make the program create a different roof. Sometimes pretty crazy looking.

    Make sure auto save is off, if you goof up, you don’t want auto save to kick in and lose your ‘undo ‘ option.

    As I said, you can raise and lower things as needed, play with overhangs.

    You should also have the roof set to ignore next story. If it is ON it will cut a hole in the roof when roof gets too high.

    The walls you make the roof on,  extend to the roof. That makes 2nd story walls a bit hard if they need to extend. Theoretically you can copy the roof to the second floor but I can’t be sure odd things won’t happen.

    Your original roof surfaces are copied to a new location named ROOF.  Some walls were deleted that stuck through the roof .

    Good luck.

    MDD,

    I made extensive roof videos years ago, they still work in v15 🙂

    This is the basic concept for your roof done as one roof. No Surfaces. Will accept Dormers.

    It incorporates a number of things I worked on in my testing of the roof tool.

    We all know you can select roof ‘arrows’ and adjust their heights in properties. So the Turret has it’s sides selected and raised.

    The front and back ‘porch’ and bump out are double pitched roofs 6/12 and 12 / 12. In that option you can adjust the ‘F’ setting which give control over the ‘depth’ of the 6/12 pitch , and where the 12 / 12 pitch begins.

    BUT the main technique is based on the movie ‘Ghost Busters’ . Remember the tool the had and the rule was ‘ Don’t Cross the Streams’. ?  That is applied in many of my roofs. It is breaking of a roof to create a new arrow , which allows you to create an alleyway, which has the overhangs set to 1/8″.  You can then pull opposing sides until the ALMOST touch. But NEVER cross with abutting roof.

    In the detail image you see the blue circles showing those breaks. And also that they are set to 1/8″ overhang.

    The same occurs where a Gable meets a Hip. Break , pull out the Gable a bit and Hip can be defined. Set overhang to a small amount to fool the eye, to think the Fascia of Hip and Gable are equal.

     

    I didn’t take the time to make the roof exactly as you need it, but I think this shows the basics. The truss manufactures or carpenters will make it work exactly but you can tweak the roofs in Envisioneer.

    Best roof tool in the business IMO.

     

    made it red to stand out  edit… the lower front bay roof is your original. edit 2 … will post a second time with bld in an hour or so.

    Hey Conrad,

     

    Fishin Kitchen candle lights.   I shrunk the lights to almost a dot, maybe 1/2″ sized.  I put a line tool circle around each one to keep track of them. You could also go to Glass section in materials and make an Invisible glass , full transparence, no shine and assign it to the lights.

    Sizing doesn’t affect the light source in any way , but shrinking fixture does cause light to shine in all directions.  Which a candle does.

    With our new version, I could have increased the Emissive of the flame itself, making the candle to appear to be lit.

    There is no Sun in the render, the ‘glow’ ‘dusk’ on the table is a light outside the window.

    I agree Conrad,

    And I also may add that being the best isn’t what counts. Seeing the littlest technique may make a big difference for us users. Years ago KITCHEN was the subject.

    For some reason I was working on a light for a candle, yellow glow. I threw in a few pine cabinets / wood stove …. and even assigned some white texture to little itty bitty columns to make smoke from top of fry pan.

    I got the yellow light, but the 2nd main part was to get a light glow on the kitchen table, even though it was dusk.

    A lot of effort on a few items got me one of my favorite renderings.

    So, I hope others get the time to post anything related to a BATH….

    Thanks for the nice comments Conrad and RS…

    It is nice to see that Envisioneer is keeping up with the latest and greatest tools available. I still  believe that there are not any other programs that integrate with other programs like 20/20, MiTek etc.

    I recently sent a dwg export to the Structural Engineer and he said it opened perfectly in AutoCad. Saving the customer at least $500 as the Engineer didn’t have to redo the work already available in Envisioneer for export.

    I just happy I can spend the time on projects to produce finished presentation like the 360. OH, I forgot, I was about to say I wish I got paid for the full effort, BUT I forwarded the 360  link to a local builder and now he wants something similar on a home he is building as a spec. He will use it for advertising.

    So, I guess I am getting paid 🙂

    thanks guys.

    Same 360, with revisions.

    Like all renderings, design work , you never ever seem to get it finished. Always something needs adjusting.

    Added shine to the floor , increase brightness at fireplace, added stair handrails and lights. added theatre seating.

    Hi Conrad,

    Merv is right, my solution is to assign the roofing material to the underside of the roof too.

    There are also times when looking from one direction everything is good and from another the surface is invisible. Happens in parts of roofs looking up from below.

    Happens with columns as you walk around them.

    in reply to: Rotate a model #14151

    Baino,

    Attached is a Rotate sample mainly showing that on the bottom Right , I have turned off most all options except Ortho, which forces Rotation or Mirror to be at 90 degs.  When I select ALL, with Mirror I then draw vertical line ‘in center’ and new model appears on the left .

    With Rotate, you select all and then click on a corner, hold mouse button down and move mouse to rotate. Ortho forces it to be 90 degs.

    In the second attachment you see some of the options for both Rotate “R” on top and Mirror ‘M’ on bottom.

    Note that the Mirror option has Dims but limited arrangements. You can also see I didn’t mouse cursor loop all the dims on the bottom , so they were not Mirrored.

    The Rotate had the dims OFF – deleted.

     

    EDIT – the small items in both are some bath fixtures, interior objects, chairs , appliance and text. All rotated or mirrored.

    Hi Baino,

    Yes you can but there are some items that will not rotate.  In general most will and when you draw a rectangle around all, and right click, the ‘Rotate ‘ Option should be available.

    1. First you must Turn Off , ‘ Select elements on current location only….’

    With this option OFF, you can draw the mouse rectangular loop around all layers that you have turned ON in the View Filter.

    To change the default setting go to Settings (way up on top bar)> Document Settings > Building Aids and uncheck Select Elements……….

    2. Then you must delete all dimensions you have in the model. They will not rotate.

    3. BUT if you draw selecting box rectangular loop around everything and right click ,select MIRROR,  dimensions will mirror.

    So if Mirror is enough use it.  Otherwise lose Dimensions and select the Rotate option.

    1 Turn OFF  Select elements on current location only….’

    2 Lose Dims and Select everything >right click > Rotate

    3 Or leave Dims / Select All > Mirror

    There may be some items that will not rotated like dims, if you don’t see Rotate option, look for those items and turn them off or delete them.
