  1. Renerabbitt's post in Jpeg scale was marked as the answer   
    you can trace it with cad lines or you can try converting it to a dxf with an online jpg to dxf converter
  2. Renerabbitt's post in Temporary dimension while editing was marked as the answer   
    Change the text style for Cad,Default
    also, I mentioned this to you in email, would highly recommend doing your lot with a polyline and leaving your terrain as a rectangle.
    This is a big liability:

    Custom_Fields is a hash so you would call it similar to other keys in Chief. It is in the Manual:

    here is a super quick video, hopefully helps:

    snap a cad line just past your high wall and break on that line and drop the remaining sliver down to the lo wall
  5. Renerabbitt's post in Need help getting a materials list made the way my boss wants. was marked as the answer   
    really Really REALLY REALLY not worth your time or anyone's for that matter. You need an accurate model to get an accurate takeoff. You do NOT need an accurate model to make construction documents. The delta for me is 30% time. That's significantly more expensive than having a lead framer do a takeoff for a few hours. You also need a good handful of custom macros for such things as screws and nails. This is a fruitless endeavor. Just giving you info from a seasoned power user, takeoffs will never be supplanted from a journeyman who knows what they are doing.
  6. Renerabbitt's post in Do you notice X16 Beta PBR being slower than X15? was marked as the answer   
    as it should be, you are performing 3 path trace bounces as opposed to 1. But you can set AMDFidelity to a higher value to improve performance or decrease your bounce rate

  8. Renerabbitt's post in Moving drawing elements from one floor to another. Is there a better way? was marked as the answer   
    I responded on my YouTube but you can simply cut the object (ctrl+x) and paste hold it on another floor. thats 3 hotkeys that can be performed in under 2 seconds...modal windows take longer than that to open so its the fastest way
  9. Renerabbitt's post in Walkthrough issues - Slow to create was marked as the answer   
    your sample rate is set to 1000 in rendering technique options on your walkthrough
    at 2.5K resolution
    30 seconds of video *30 frames/second=900 *1000 samples=900,000 1000 samples/36 samples-per-second on a 4090 = 25,000 seconds=~ 7 hours to render
    so probably around 10 hours for you

    Also you should put a roof on her to mitigate the light bleed at the ceiling
    BTW you are sharing PCI lanes with your graphics cards with those two extra M.2 drives
  10. Renerabbitt's post in Macro for window square footage? was marked as the answer   
    oh you want it fo each window as opposed to a total. then there is a built in macro:

    but you would have to put it in the window label which would not be all that desirable if you were trying to show it in elevation.
    Better to just put it in the window schedule

  12. Renerabbitt's post in Can a Fill Style be Assigned to a Layer was marked as the answer   
    No...a 3d view is going to apply a  material to your framing member, so you would need a material with the color you want, but there is no way to assign a material based on the layer of the object it is being applied to.
  13. Renerabbitt's post in Cross Section object display help was marked as the answer   
    without opening your plan I am guessing that you are using a wall elevation camera, which is clipped to a room. you need to edit your active view and uncheck clip to room and then likely adjust a back clip and side clip parameters
  14. Renerabbitt's post in Manual Switch Options was marked as the answer   
    just place a symbol that is a 3way from your library,otherwise you need to edit the CAD block and add your annotation for the symbol you are trying to modify.
    Use CAD Lines set to the electrical connections layer to depict a connection between floors
  15. Renerabbitt's post in How to create this curved and sloped wall/desk? was marked as the answer   
    Narrow Ramp with a Solid Railing
     
  16. Renerabbitt's post in Text macro question on two drawings with Open Below setting in rooms was marked as the answer   
    You could set a macro with a conditional statement that looks for a specific room name and then assigns a global variable to the ceiling height of the open below room that will report in that specific room names ceiling height
  17. Renerabbitt's post in @Solver - how do you hip the left side roof from the 1st floor all the way up to the second floor was marked as the answer   
    the condition you show doesnt allow for that unless you change overhangs or plate heights
  18. Renerabbitt's post in Mono to mono w/stepdown breaks the shared footing was marked as the answer   
    your patio pour number should not superceded that of the higher elevation slab, its a priority, not an order of operations.
    also..mark me as solved, haha

    @HumbleChief Does this still occur if you change reference to "Absolute"
  23. Renerabbitt's post in 3DConnexion mouse CA menus was marked as the answer   
    This is me, please tag me so I get notifications or quote me...I just happened upon this while taking a break.
    Those menu items are ones I created myself by writing macros, they are not built in. I hand scripted the icons in place as well. Takes a bit of coding to set it all up. You can write your own macros using the built in recording function. Mine are a bit complicated in that I wrote in modifiers to gain an additional 3 functions per sqipe on the menus. Let me know if you need more info

    OOTB no longer has a layer 0 FYI
    usually used for CAD imports
  25. Renerabbitt's post in Molding Challenge was marked as the answer   
    Would be nice if you post your plan file, see video below for an awesome way to present your plan challenges.
    Only guess would be that you made the cabinets to the right an architectural block and it needs to be exploded.(It looks like the molding is cut to the refer handle)
