  1. John, I have had some great success in the past with people like yourself that like to design buildings but cannot do it with CAD. I have used Zoom and screen sharing with a lot of success. If this is something that might interest you, please do not hesitate to contact me. Daniel Middleton md design mddesign.dan@gmail.com
  2. What exactly are you looking for? What version do you have for trial?
  3. @pazzfam, we would use AutoCAD as well. As @joey_martin mentioned, do you know what is NOT working. I am willing to take a look at the file if you want to send it to me? Free of charge to just take a look and see what possibly might be the problem. The dwg file that is....
  4. @Seafield, I am not an Architect and I do not live in PEI (I live in BC). What is the size of the Commercial Project? Under a certain square footage and you don't need an Architect. That being said, if you are sure you need one, I cannot help. But, if you are not sure... send me a message and we can talk.
  5. Living in Kelowna, BC. Working with CA for approx. 6 years and still learning the software. I started with Home Designer Pro 2017, made the change to CA Premier X10 and have been upgrading all along on SSA.
  6. Hello all, I am available to do Residential Design on contract, doesn't have to be in Canada. I am currently using X11, willing to work by the hour or a set rate. If you are looking for someone to do contract work, one time or on a constant basis, please drop me a line and see if I can help you out. Dan Middleton MD Design mddesign.dan@gmail.com
  7. Hello all, I live in Beautiful British Columbia. I have X10, and am looking to do some side jobs. I do commercial buildings with AutoCAD, but I have a company and do mainly residential design with it. I would love to work more with Chief X10, and am willing to discuss any possible leads.
  8. I believe with the proper cad file, this can be imported directly into Chief X10. I am very interested in seeing how this goes, and as mentioned someone spent some time putting this information in.... it should be in an accessible cad file somewhere.
  9. I am definitely interested. I have X10 and would be willing to discuss further, do you have a price in mind per house? I can be reached at mddesign.dan@gmail.com
  10. I have Pro 2017, 2018. I also have X8, X9 and X10. I have done quite a number of house drawing in AutoCAD and then transfered them into Chief. I can help, with reasonable price too (depends on the intricacy of the design).
  11. I have been designing and drafting Residential and Commercial buildings for 20 years. I am available to do drafting for any size project. I am fully versed in AutoCAD (started with AutoCAD 9 - NOT a windows program) and am fairly new to Chief. I started using Home Designer Pro 2017, 2018 and then found the program was quite a bit different from AutoCAD. Upon review of the Chief Archiect Premier X8, I decided to switch to the more powerful program. I have used X8, X9 and now X10. Would love to have the opportunity to design more houses or buildings using this program. I have drafted well over 100 residential homes. I also have drafted Commercial buildings. I live in British Columbia, and have designed houses for municipalities in BC as well as Alberta and New Brunswick. I am fairly knowledgeable on the BC Building code and its requirements when it comes to residential houses in BC. Municipalities I have worked with include: Calgary, Whistler, Vancouver, Williams Lake, Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Lake Country, Penticton, Oliver, Osoyoos, Vernon and Moncton NB. I am currently using Chief Architect Premier X10 as well as AutoCAD Architecture 2014. md design Email: mddesign.dan@gmail.com Website: https://dtmiddleton.wixsite.com/mddesign
  12. Thank you David, I have played with it many times, but have never quite figured it out. I end up just doing manual dimensioning, however it doesn't always work well.
  13. I am wondering if anyone knows of a program like rescheck for Canada building code? I live in BC, and I add tables with my RSI number on it for different building materials. I created the table in excel and just import it, but there must be a way I can put the RSI values into the program and it can create the table for me similar to a wall assembly table?
