  1. Well, I guess if anybody is entitled to hi-jack a thread you are. What have you been up to my man?
  2. Well, 49 views and no responses. I guess I can take that as a no. Guess I'll just have to drag my image into PSP and do some clean up. There's not much one can't do with the Clone Brush tool.
  3. Is there a way that I am unaware of to ameliorate the unfortunate way that the texture on radiused corners on countertops render? Changing the radius (not really a viable option) doesn't help nor does using Global Symbol Mapping.
  4. Interesting pic. Hope they are planning an exit strategy for the forest fire that appears to be raging in the background.
  5. I suggested this in 2016 and apparently I wasn't the first at that time. I think this would help users of all levels every time they use the program. Louie Louie, oh no, me gotta go, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby
  6. Sorry, I couldn't resist..
  7. I use Paint Shop Pro but any image editing program will work. Just set your canvas size to 128 x 128 as Chop mentioned and you have about 16,000 pixels to work with. It's a bit of an art form to work in such a minimal area but when you get what you like save it as a PNG file and put in in Chief's buttons folder. C:\Program Files\Chief Architect\Chief Architect Premier X14\resources\buttons Some examples:
  8. As Mick mentioned Xfrog ( has 3D modeling software. You might want to download their free trial and see if it meets your needs. They also have thousands of 3D pants available in their libraries and collections.
  9. Came across these totally by chance. I was going thru Chief's 3D Library looking for some interesting lighting fixtures when I stumbled onto the fairly new Niche catalog. I kind of liked the pictured pendant light fixtures. As an E.B.E. they of reminded me of the mothership .... but I digress. Included in the download, but not mentioned anywhere, are some nice material options including colored glass and metal finishes. Just a FYI.
  10. Coincidentally, I made that very entry door just last week. See if this works for you. 5 Lite Door.calibz
  11. When you're done using a tool, return it to it's proper place. Why can't these clowns grasp the concept that it is far more efficient to take a few seconds or a minute or two to put the damn thing back where it belongs than to have to whole crew standing around looking at each other when the guy who used it last didn't come in today and no one knows where he put it. Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest.
  12. You know, I always thought that way when we see numerous posts asking the OP to move their post to the appropriate forum. Then again, how would we know how many have actually deleted and moved their original posts?
  13. Joey, FYI when my mouse cursor crosses over the round thingy with your logo in it this is what is displaying.
  14. How should I go about modeling this? I just want to know who draws up these plans? Check out what's out there.
  15. Interesting. We'll see how the "dimensioning expert" measures up.
  16. In the interest of full disclosure you should know that Rene and Ryan are thick as thieves. Not sayin' that they aren't good, just saying.
  17. Oh someone can spell alright. Strictly going on the advice of the legal department. CYA and all.
  18. Your plan file is empty. I had a play with a detached duplex garage with a rooftop deck a while back. I ended up going in a more traditional direction.
  19. Can't remember the last time a computer I built had the cover put on it. BTW, having the cover off doesn't always result in cooler operation.
  20. I'll be entering through the garage if it's all the same to you.
  21. The best way is to grab him by the lapels. Or you could type the "at sign" followed by his forum name. @Joe_Carrick
