  1. oops! I just found Bluestone Panels under Buechel Stone corp, Library!!! That's pretty close to what I need!
  2. TeaTime, thanks for giving a clear visual explanation of how linetypes work. That helps! John
  3. Thank you. With everything else improving so much with Chief, this should have been tackled by now...
  4. This one has driven me nuts since forever, but finally to the point where I expect there should be solution. Please see the square footing lines. Is there a way for me to get 4 equal lines, with dashes equally centered, on each side of this square? If not, there should be by now... thanks in advance!
  5. Hi Mick, I did start with Lenovo and continue to look. As Rene pointed out, getting high end graphics into a 2 in 1 seems to be tricky! Best, John
  6. Thank you again! My current 2 in 1 is a Lenovo yoga (I think RTX 1050 graphics). It has been the longest lasting most durable laptop I've ever owned over a 20 year period of laptops including a really cool mini Fujitsu back in the day, a Sony Vaio, a Samsung, and an ASUS (that sucker really ran hot!!!). I hope Lenovo comes out with something... I appreciate your feedback!
  7. BTW, I've considered this, but I'm not sure if the way it "assembles" would have the comfort/rigidity I'd want when I use it in "laptop mode".... ASUS Flow Z13 GZ301 13.4" Touch-Screen 2-in-1 Laptop Intel Core i7 16GB Memory NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 512GB SSD GZ301ZC-PS73 - Best Buy
  8. Thank you, Rene and Kbird1, for your comments... I realize I should re-phrase my wants/intentions better: This won't be my main production laptop. I have an HPOmen desktop less than a year old with an NVidia RTX 3080, and it seems to be running just fine for my needs. Almost all Chief Design and production will be done on this, or by consultants on their machines. the 2in1 I'm looking for will be for when i travel, and when I'm at a client's home and likely hovering around the model in 3D. It's not for high end rendering quality design; it's more about giving them a "good enough" visual of the spaces we've designed for them. The 2in1 part comes in as I may use it for sketching, having the client sign documents in person. etc. I want to have the 2-in-1 touch screen for these and other uses. That said, do you think a lesser card like a 3050 or 3060 would suffice? Does this information change your answers? As always, thanks so much!!!
  9. Lightweight (3.5 pound and under), 2 in 1, touch screen, Nvidia 40 series.... I'll start there. Can't find one. Can anyone help? Thanks!
  10. Clearly, the right thing to do would be to allow anyone with a current SSA license, to perpetually be able to buy other SSA licenses. Shame on you for not recognizing this.
  11. What pisses me off is that I am a small architecture firm that has been using chief architect for nearly 20 years. I call that a relationship. And now chief is twisting our arms. What happens when my firm grows, and I need more than the two current licenses I have? I have to pay five times more per year for each additional license? Are you freaking kidding me? That’s not a relationship. I’ve led many customers to you, and I am simply betrayed. I beg you to fix this.
  12. What changes can we expect to SSA prices can we expect over the years to come???! I feel like I just got suckered into a timeshare maintenance plan that keeps going up. So incredibly disappointed in you, chief architect.
  13. I've been trying to do a mitered corner stair down from a patio to grade; the patio was created as a "slab". Do corner stairs ONLY work for Decks? If so, do I need to use the deck tool and modify it to a patio? Seems counter-productive... While I'm asking, what is the best practice for making a patio? convert a polyline to a slab? make a room? Solid? Thank you!
