This has happened before and I can't remember how I fixed it.  When I assemble the two floors the first floor is below grade and the second floor is on grade.  The elevations are correct but when I do a 3D image that is where the problem is.

Are the floors stacked properly in the model?

Check the auto horizon offset in the options setup

Check the height of the Auto-Horizon, by default it's at the bottom of the main floor. Softplan may think your main floor is the basement.

Also, make sure you didn't inadvertently put a sill plate on your second floor system.

Again, thanks to all who replyed.  I posted a reply yesterday but it has dissappeared.  The problem was a sill plate on the second floor.
