V17 - 2017 Looking for Help? / Re: Default dimensions
« Last post by Patricia G. on July 07, 2017, 04:38:59 AM »
Hi there,

You can change the dimensions of any cabinet (not only the appliances) as well as their parts (the doors, for example) just selecting the desired cabinet / part => go to the information tab => change the desired dimension. See attached.
Don't forget to press Enter after each modification, so the change takes effect.

Notice that, in the cabinets with appliances, the dimensions are not the ones for just the appliance but the dimensions of the appliance + the cabinet.

V17 - 2017 Looking for Help? / Default dimensions
« Last post by BruceN on July 07, 2017, 03:27:17 AM »
I am an Australian user and find it difficult to use" Appliance Cabinets".  Your default dimensions cannot be altered to take account of our appliance sizes, eg Ovens are 600mm: Refrigerators are NOT 737 mm etc.  Can you please advise how to change these default dimensions ?  Regards BruceN
Hi there,

click inside the room => go to the Information bar (right side of the screen) => unselect " Show ceiling"  (see attached)=> in this way, instead of the flat ceiling, you will see the internal face of the roof as well as the sloped walls.
From the outside my roof/ceiling is clearly sloping with one end wall being 9' and the other being 11' the two side walls are each 9' but I can not figure out where to go from here editing walls or ceilings/roofs to make the walls have (when viewing it as 3D on the inside) the slope that the ceiling/roof has when I view it from the outside using the 3D view.

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

The TFP libraries (Furnishing, Plants, Materials, etc) include a great tool that you will find at the bottom of the Libraries menu: the Search Tool => just write the name of the  desired element. See attached.
Yes, there is a Gutter Kit.

You can specify the roof elements for each segment or you can add other elements in the Framing tab. Notice that the Custom roofs and the Ready to Use roofs have different options.

Hope this helps!  ;)

Hi there,

The old TFP (V12 to 16) and the new TFP (V17 and up) are two very different programs, with different commands, tools and premises. So, I'd suggest to learn this as a new program.

Gable end: You can use a gable wall  with H= 0.5 cm
Hope this helps!

Me again,  this one is about placing gutters in the program, do they exist or will i need to create a custom object? ( haven't done that one yet).  The fascia that is created with the roof is there a way to specify the depth of the board?  i tried to specify the rafter depth but it didn't appear to affect the depth of the fascia in the 3D view

Practice makes perfect you are correct.  I'm picking it up again from the older version of TFP before it became a punch product so there are some differences I'm finding out about as I go.  In this particular instance, i guess i'm concerned that if i use the wall tool to fill in a roof gable it will include the interior side i.e. drywall in the BOM.  obviously it would need to include the exterior side for cladding purposes but the interior side will be in the roof space and wont need any drywall.  The older program had a gable end fill in tool in the roof section, i cant seem to find a similar button in this new one.  Thanks again for all of your help i will be checking out your website for certain
