    room label rotation issues!!

    Thanks Michael, that this has been broken this long and two /three versions have come is very disappointing. i went to the other post and I will use your custom room label.. but still... really .. it’s hard to believe. i spoke to chief the other day about it and I thought I just needed to turn some settings to fix it. i don’t ever remember this happening when I rotated the layout box before.. because I had to go into the plan and rotate the label for it to read properly.. I note don’t know if I am coming or going..

    Client presentation

    What type of styles do you use to present your designs to clients?

    Client presentation

    Mark here is a 360 i did with very little time spent staging and such...i know floors are too shinny..i did it for a realtor that is listing and selling a reno...renovator usually doesn't get plans done so the realtor wanted to show him what it could look like so they don't have to discount job at end because of design decisions renovator makes without any design input. I find clients like to share their designs with friends and family for input..360 works well for this. https://accounts.chiefarchitect.com/360/view?share=150042410378297
  5. I use 360’s all the time.. seems like all the schools are teaching revit.. does revit have a 360? it would be an advantage for us against other designers using revit...

    Does revit have a 360 like ca?

    Rene, really good comments, I think clients like dealing with more local designers... but I agree overseas rendering companies are aggressive. But I think most clients are reluctant to contact these firms.. but money talks.. i know you said revit has advantage over ca on some things.. to me the speed and quality I can get out of a pbr 360 is good value for time spent .. anyways always like to hear your comments as you certainly have your stick on the ice.

    Client presentation

    I was thinking of how everyone conveys their design to a client... back in the day all we had was line drawing plan and elevations to show a client a design. so I was hoping to get a sense of what others do and if you have time why you do what you do. i remember doing perspective drawings with vanishing lines on a drafting table with pencil on vellum.. boy have we come far. so my question is really focused on design presentation.. these days it not ok just to draw a line for cabinets in a kitchen but show the cabinet style, splash, lighting, cabinet configuration, hood style, fixtures, etc same thing holds true for the exterior, missing, material changes, window configuration etc. we all are selling a design to a client anyways I hope to see a good response to see what others are doing so we all can learn from one another..

    Does revit have a 360 like ca?

    Rene.. I wonder how many Ca folks use the 360’s.. I’ve never seen any client speak about a revit model.. maybe it’s not as easy.. I did a render for a builder for real estate listing and the plans were done using revit I think.. why wouldn’t the original design firm be able to do what I did?
  10. I am trying to add a custom side panel to a base cabinet and i have selected in accessories full panel, full overlay but the door panel does not come to front of drawers, if i just use a flat panel then it does. I know i have made this work before...any suggestions?
  11. I agree joe, you have to go out of one tab into another tab to make this work.
  12. Thanks Michael, I spoke to chief and they didn’t know...
  13. Hi mark, when I select paneled our auto paneled I only get flat panel, how do you change it to a door panel?

    Eric, what do you mean by copy the structure exactly...i copied the plan with the room types and pasted it into the plan and the room types did not show up in plan.

    Laser Scanned As Built Drawings

    I have done many as builts.. I take my laptop and a laser measure to site and input plan on the spot..I set the Temp dimensions to face of drywall.. doesn’t take too long.. only real critical dimensions are where cabinets might go.. i can draw up a 2000 sq ft two storey inside of an hour. Have you considered doing this yourself?
  22. Hey Chiefers...can anyone make a tile texture like this? I was thinking that i could make a 3d object of tile and just apply it to walls...but maybe there is a better way? Inmetro_productsheet.pdf
  23. Is there a way of changing what the location of the background picture shows on a interior shot looking out? Here is an example picture with a full 360 deg view...
  24. I am trying to do a pbr of a condo suite, i added another floor on top to get rid of the light bleed at ceilings and the door jambs turn black or the entire door in some cases. I built this door symbol but why would pbr do this? I have seen it on the first release of pbr on white surfaces turning black. Here is the plan, any thoughts would be much appreciated. n4th.zip
  25. I was thinking there might be another solution but i am not very good at photoshop type manipulation, i have gimp for photo software... What about cutting the pano and rearranging the cut piece to one side or the other so the view you want would be where it needs to be? Does this make sense? I need some help showing how to do this..if anyone has some time.
