  1. Main menu, 3d, lighting, add lights
  2. Thanks, what I suspected .
  3. I would like to know what solution you used. thx
  4. I think you need to use 3d trees and bushes to get shadows in the exterior views without raytracing.
  5. Hi Chad, I would select the door way and pull the right side to the wall. This will eliminate the newel. The left side needs a newel for railing transition. Or line up with 2nd floor railing to continue the railing
  6. It looks like the terrain is set to 36" below main floor 0. Open the terrain dbx and set it to +4".
  7. make sure you are using railing wall type on both levels.
  8. Ok I followed @perryplanspro video and was able to fix it! https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/topic/25193-x12-crash-and-windows-fth-warnings/?do=findComment&comment=221356 Thank you Perry for making the video!
  9. I just sent a plan to tech support because the 3d solid object, when I try to copy and rotate it with the rotate handle it would crash Chief. It happened 3 times, then I got this warning. Now I'm trying to fix it, no luck yet. Have followed chief recommended procedures, no joy! Caution to all, don't let it crash more than 1-2 times. Use a different method to achieve your task. Waiting to hear back from tech.
  10. My bad, I just reopened the plan and placed a foundation wall under the garage partition wall. Made the laundry floor the same height as rest of interior (0") Fixed
  11. I think this is a bug, if you delete the foam layer under the slab it doesn't tapper to the back of the garage. You should send to tech.
  12. Nailed it Eric! I don't use tray's very often but now I will now what to do with them! Thank you for sharing.
  13. John, First off we need to know what version of Chief you are running. Yes chief has a hard time with acad files and I usually try and avoid it. What exactlly are you trying to import that cant be made in chief? Also how large is the file in question? What version of acad was it exported to? What is different from the past imports you have had success with?
  14. First thing is to make sure your ceiling heights are correct to what is existing. Then_ I think you need to change the framing size of your roof planes to 2x4's not 2x10 which is the current condition. This will bring your fascia height back down.
