  1. Make sure you aren't running out of hard drive space. That can sometimes cause strange things to happen.
  2. The GTX 1660 is not a RTX card which is why you can't do Real Time Raytracing, only standard ray tracing. You need a RTX 2000 or newer card. Check out the screen grab below of the preference panel you mention and the accompanying help file info. If it's grayed out, then your card does not support it.
  3. Straight from the help file. Sounds like your laptop does not support Real Time Ray Tracing. What are the specs? Global Illumination When Use Ray Tracing is active and checked, multiple samples of indirect lighting in the scene are created, improving the lighting quality with each sample. This setting and those below it will not be active if real-time GPU Ray Tracing is not supported on the system. See GPU Ray Tracing.
  4. Hey @Chopsaw, I recently bought a total station and I would love to know how you are making this table for exporting.
  5. I just ran into something odd. Seems like the Align/Distribute Along Line tool does not work correctly in elevations/cross sections like it does in plan views. Can anyone else confirm that or is it just me. Specifically I'm opening a elevation, drawing a horizontal poly-line, drawing two vertical poly-lines, selecting the two vertical poly-lines, clicking the Align/Distribute Along Line Tool, selecting the horizontal line, this brings up the Align to Line dialog box. I'm leaving the alignment radio button on none. Selecting Distribute Centers Evenly and Distribute Between End Points radio buttons and click ok. Lines do not center correctly or the same as they do in plan view. Wondering if I have a setting off or if this might be a bug
  6. Go into the room DBX for those two small rooms where you built the walls and check that the floor structure is the same as the rest of the house on that floor. My guess is for some reason that floor structure in those two little rooms is different which makes them frame differently. Also make sure those rooms are on the same framing group as the big room surrounding it. That's just a guess though. If not the problem then post the plan please.
  7. WORD!! This will be extremely welcomed. I also concur with Glenn that the mirror option would be used more than not in most cases for me.
  8. Hey William, Would you mind sharing your shipping container materials or images? I can't seem to find a good quality free ones online. Thanks!
  9. That makes sense to me. I think it would still help a lot of us out if they were able to put all this into a web UI under our account page like all the other subscription based platforms, I use, have. Calling in and figuring all this out over the phone I suppose does work but it feels old school and it seems we are moving into the future here so why not upgrade this area for simplicity and clarity. Just my opinion though, I'll give them a call later this week when I can find time during business hours.
  10. My SSA expires on January 17th 2023. I will be out of the country then and might not have access to renew. I just went to the products page to renew my SSA and was then presented with this message below. If you are making this new system so critical for us existing users to renew our SSA on time or face the consequences of a 300% price increase then might I suggest you revamp the renewal system for SSA that will show our current payment information, allow for backup payment information, early renewals, and other pertinent details at all times so we can modify payment details in case our credit card number changes, expires, or something else that keeps us from being active at the crucial moment. I feel like I share in some confusion and worry about how this is about to be implemented. I love Chief! Happy to pay for it. I just don't need extra steps or stress involved with it
  11. Yeah I found a stray toolbar that had a handful on it and deleted them and was able to add more. Strange though. I hope they lift the maximum allowed again. I'm getting into style pallets which are awesome for making custom toolbar shortcuts but do require a lot of custom library objects. Thanks guys!
