Why is this gap here?

@andy
@susanbluerobot

I tried to recreate the object on the screen when PCS opens and I ended with a gap in the design but I don't see one on the opening screen object (that could be the way it's placed for viewing). Does this gap need to be here in order for the card to fold correctly?

Thanks

    Looks like you've anchored it to the back of the card instead of onto the design.

    Thanks @supermum I'll go back to the drawing board and try to find out what I did wrong.

    how did you fix it may I ask, I created same thing and got same results, tried to use eraser inverse to fix the two lines that not be there by adding another box, even tried to weld with no go.. can't convert a line segment to be on one plane or the other, or can I..
    and how can I automatically attach to opposite side, an object?
    Thanks

    It to me looked like your "z" layer needed changing putting that bottom plane lowered down

    If you were on the webinar on Tuesday night, Andy went over a similar circumstance shortly after I stopped recording. I'll try to make a quick video of how to fix something like this.

    welded this piece and it fixed it..
    Seems like I need some line tools..
    ability to create a single line and select the style (maybe I want a slit somewhere or an extra crease Double folded shutter)

    I would like the window to hinge left and a crease in the middle..
    How do I do this?
    Thanks

    It is in there. Draw the line with the normal tool. To change the line style, select the line or object you want to change and click the last icon on the right on the bottom tool bar.

    Right click and rotate the card to the position that makes it easier to design in. Look at the house cards people have done (including the Christmas house Andy showed).

    I cannot seem to draw a single line.. just a closed shape, is there an options somewhere, am I missing something?
    Thanks

    I will get some questions together for webinar..
    I have another file, trying to manipulate around and it leaves shads, I get on the plane with the shads, cut them, but instead of cutting what I see, it cuts the object they came from..
    if it took the objects I see, yellow selections and I moved to the plane object came from and welded them back, all would be good..
    I''m keeping the file as it was originally just a drawing in mtc. and trying to convert it to PCS.

    To draw a line or lines that don't close, hit the enter key after you have set the last point.

    For your other questions, start a new thread and post the file you are having the problem with.

    emphasis added

    That was the key thing I was missing but finally figured out - you have to click to set that last point AND THEN hit the enter key! :-bd I kept trying to hit the enter key when I got to where I wanted the line to end without setting that last point first after watching Andy's demo. Finally got it! ;)
    Go Vols!
