  1. Nice Job Rene, how would i make it drop down further? In this case I have a 90" high soffit and one would want tv to get within 6" of a 30" high cabinet, you t want tv to be this high.
  2. Thanks Susan, this will work nicely, didnt know it was there.
  3. I need help converting this flush hood fan to chief. Can anyone convert this file so I can import it to chief? Is there a converter i can use, or do you have to have revit? 6329.zip
  4. trying to make a cabinet drawer that drops out of ceiling to expose a flat panel tv. I made the tv a millwork item and changed drawer in cabinet to the tv, just cant figure out how to rotate the cabinet or make it a symbol that still has a drawer but opens down out of ceiling. Anyone have an idea how to do this?
  5. Renee have you ever built a cabinet door that hinges and then slides away for a bar or coffee station?
  6. I clicked these options, why does it work for applied panels but not your custom panels? doesn’t make sense to apply a gable and not have it go to door front? A bit off topic…Fyi I have been using some styles and now have to make gables and fillers with cabinets because ca doesn’t include panels in styles but includes back splash.. makes no sense? Is there another option?
  7. Mark how do you get these side panels to be flush with doors and go down to floor?
  8. I found this on the web..but it is in a .rfa formatt... its a Revit format anyone have Revit that could convert this to a .skp or a format chief can open? Sink-Under_Mount-Kitchen-KOHLER-Vault-K-3822.rfa
  9. I think there is always room for improvement in construction documents and stairs… But the rtrt is awesome.. everything starts with a vision and design.. to be able to produce quality rtrt in minutes is amazing. check out these photos of design through to finished product..
  10. Here is a calacatta gold 24x48 tile texture i made using Justin's tile builder and a seamless texture file from architexture I had to turn pixel count way up in order to get a proper grout line with such a large tile, so texture might be big. https://accounts.chiefarchitect.com/360/view?share=550422850013302 Calacatta Gold Large Formatt Tile.calibz
  11. Good idea.. I forgot I could do that
  12. anyone have an old x10 elkay library you can share?
  13. I updated bonus library and i don't have a kitchen design style library?
  14. this sink is a top mount, and the undermount doesn't cut counter properly?
  15. Thanks Rob.. I will check it out. Don’t you find it strange there are not more?
  16. Thanks Brandon, not that i cant pay for a symbol, but i was looking for some symbols people could share, Its kind of weird that these are not even a standard symbol dont you think?
  17. I find that chief and other vendor libraries( kohler, elkay) dont have very many square type undermount sinks with tight radius edges. Here is one i have in my library, its my go to for a dbl. Here is an example of a 15mm corner radius undermount single compartment I am looking for. Anyone have a good single compartment ss sink or library of more they could share that would be great.

  18. I was attempting to view 360 on my iPad and the movement and orientation wasn’t working on IPad. i called into apple to see why. They said it’s likely that the iPad uses a desktop like safari browser without orientation etc, we managed to get it working by going into an email and undocking the icon from bottom and then it recognized it as a mobile browser and worked.. not sure if I could replicate this work around again anyone have a similar issue? What else have people done? the 360 looks great on iPad so I think this is really important, and asking a client to do a work around is a total no go.. most can barely open and use 360 I find.
  19. I produced a 360 using rtrt set at 500 passes.. put it into a cheap google glass (using iPhone and clicking on glasses button)and had the framers on site viewed it.. they were amazed. I have to believe a better vr glass would be better… but this view on these cheap glasses truly is still very good.. it really does represent design. This model was not tweaked much.. I am sure the likes of Renee could fine tune more but I just exported 360 to try quickly on site. https://accounts.chiefarchitect.com/360/view?share=408837380345528 360 rtrt 500 passes
  20. i was hoping that enough of us think it is a problem then CA might look at adjusting now...not x14, as it came out in x13 and was never properly fixed...
  21. I agree Renee...trees are awful..
  22. Do we need more control to make line thickness thinner over renders?
  23. Thanks Michael, i was thinking it needed to be a macro, i just dropped it in the label of the polyline and good to go.
