Re: Section + Elevation workflow

The View routine of naming views can support not only viewport but can support layer control. You can use this same viewport in the print routine... this is how I stack plans and elevations sometimes on top of one another and then via Layer and View controls can print what I want relative to that sh...

Re: High Design with Sketchup

Re: HighDesign 1.8.5 Release Candidate 1 Now Available

Re: HighDesign 1.8.5 Release Candidate 1 Now Available

Re: roof hatch

I agree its a little rough to build hatches with short lines... nonetheless I took your quest as a quick challenge (<5 min) and came up with a few Wood Shake hatch pattern ideas.
