    Pony Wall - Wall Cap Missing

    So basically I have to use X10 for it to work? Do you recommend anything? Should I use a polyline solid or soffit? I was also reading about a "molding polyline" but I don't know what that is.

    Pony Wall - Wall Cap Missing

    I am working on a project with a split entry. I have created a pony wall for the basement foundation / framed wall above. The framed wall has stone veneer on it and I would like to have a masonry ledge / cap on it. Looking at other tutorials it looks like there should be a “wall cap” section in the wall specifications, but mine seems to missing. See attached screenshots. Not sure if it is because I am using version X9? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Saving X10 file as X9 & background issue

    Okay found it in the defaults! Thank you And yes, I'm trying to transfer it back but it's a plan file.
  5. We recently just upgraded our chief architect from X9 to X10 and I have a few questions: Is there any way to save a chief X10 file as an X9 file? Also, working on X10 I can't figure out how to add a background image to the 3D perspectives. On X9 you would go to 3D on the toolbar > 3D view defaults > backdrop > select backdrop... Now on X10 you go to 3D on the toolbar > 3D view defaults and there is no option to select a backdrop. Thanks in advance!

    Curved Walls - Materials Showing Through

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, they helped. Also, for some reason it was creating attic walls within the curved wall.. but on each level. He just turned off generate automatic attic walls for that room. The problem is fixed for now will see how it goes! Thanks
  7. My colleague is working on a project that has a turret stairwell. For some reason the materials are showing through the doors and windows on the curved walls? He tried it on a blank plan to experiment but the same thing is happening.. Does anyone know what causes this? See attached images. Thanks in advance!

    Sketchup model to Chief object x9

    Thank you all for your help. I have finally figured it out. Instead of downloading from the Teknion website (wouldn't let me pick a year of Sketch up to Download), i went and found it on the 3D Warehouse. Does anyone know how to explode an imported Sketch up file that i brought into Chief Architect? thanks, Angela

    Sketchup model to Chief object x9

    Do you know how to download older 2015 version? I can't seem to figure it out for the Teknion furniture. I will take a look at Michael's links tonight, thanks!
  11. I am trying to import sketchup furniture from Teknion. They have a "resources" page where you can download Sketchup models. Once you download the Sketchup model, you can import it into Chief. The first one I tried worked, but now I am getting the attached pop up. Also, is there any way the blocks can be exploded? They seem to be furniture layouts and not single furniture components. Thanks in advanced.

    Room Divider won't Delete

    Room Divider won't Delete

    I made a chief plan of an existing cottage layout with different ceiling heights on the main floor. Now I have saved the existing cottage layout to alter the plan but since we will be taking the whole second floor off and starting fresh with new floor joists we are going to make the main floor ceiling one height. So I went ahead and changed this on chief... Now that I've cleared the whole main floor plan so that there are only a few partitions (because it will be open concept) when I try to put a new railing to go to the basement a room divider keeps showing up and it won't let me delete it. I've tried playing around with the railing that goes to the basement. If I delete the railing the room divider disappears, then I re-draw the railing to go to the basement and the room divider shows up again and won't let me delete it. I've attached the file and put some notes in red to try and show what the issues are. Sorry my explanation on here is confusing lol.. Any help would be awesome!!
