Location: 04 Masonry / Chimney & Fireplace The chimney proper is built from walls and slabs. At the top things tend to get weird, with a lot of zigging back and forth. This object should help with that, as well taking care of ending the flues. Executive summary: Build up a stack of up to eight stages of masonry. The

In our true masonry fireplaces, the hearth support is usually a cantilevered concrete slab. The hearth itself is a separate slab with its top at the level of the finish floor, usually 3/4" above story zero. This finish slab may vary in thickness, and will often be thicker than the typical finish floor. You want to see this slab in
Somebody asked why the flue object can't show a thickness for the flue liner itself. One reason: The flue sits atop, and lines up with, the top of the smoke chamber object. In section this gives a continuous void. If a thickness is built in to the flue, there would be a discontinuity at the top of the smoke chamber,
Not for Construction The path of the smoke inside the chimney is created by a series of SEO subtractions using the Smoke Chamber and Flue objects as operators. The targets are whatever elements the objects pass though. Each firebox has a smoke chamber directly on top of it. Directly on top of that is a flue object. In a
Location: 04 Masonry / Chimney & Fireplace It's very hard to describe this object independent of the whole chimney process, but I'm going to try. Once this guy is written up we can look at how it, the firebox, and the flue work together. This version is superior to the JM9 version in that the flue is better oriented with
As long as I can remember, we've used a polygon wall for a fireplace, with a 3D-only wall or slab above to take the chimney to the ceiling. This method has been developed pretty far. This new method isn't going to give you the 1" chimney section for CDs, but for schematics, it feels a little simpler.
A Flue is for modeling chimney flues. It shows in plan and section. In section, the layer should be wireframe to show the flue void. In general use, elements on the A Flue layer will be subtracted from each part of the Fireplace/Chimney. The templates have a new layer combination, 'View Flues', which shows the flues solid inside the wireframe
Now that you have a fireplace, you'll likely need a chimney.
Location: 04 Masonry : Chimney & Fireplace The missing link between Firebox JM9 and Flue JM9. You could use a mesh and a slab in its place, but why? The smoke chamber fits on top of the firebox. The width, depth, and firebox Back width should match the Firebox Lining object. The flue width and depth should match the
Start with a polygon wall in the shape of the firebox and chimney plan. The height should be the height of the firebox opening. The fill should be rubble, assuming stone veneer. 1 Stone polygon wall
Location: 04 Masonry : Chimney & Fireplace Just the fire brick part. Looks good in plan, section, and elevation. For a correct section, align the polygon wall of the firebox core with the inside of the Lining object, then subtract the object from the wall. Images below the fold.
Location: 04 Masonry / Chimney & Fireplace A round or rectangular tube for modeling chimney flues. The top can be offset for a sloping flue. Plan Display & Editing "Show Cut" means a white box with a X. "Show Slant" means the path of the sloping flue, typically shown dashed. Both can turned off, in which case the object will
I will try to flesh this out when I have time. It's a solid method, and touches on a lot of useful techniques. • 3 coincident walls for fire box: Stone veneer, block core, fire brick. All go on A Fireplace. • Use roof for back of fire box; SEO add to firebrick wall. Roof goes on X SEO General.
Location: 09 Finishes A slate (or whatever) surround with optional moulding. Actually the slate is optional too, you can have just the moulding. You can set the head and jamb widths separately. PS, right-click on this object in the plan and select 'Go to Info Web Page'. Watch out for recursion!
