  1. Hi Alll, Is there anyone here or know of anyone who uses Chief and can speak Thai language?? I am trying to help someone here learn the program. Thank you very much!!
  2. I am trying to understand the best way to import a location map to a layout... Does anyone do this all the time??
  3. I have all interior doors and openings to use (2) 2x4 headers... I don't care if it frames on the flat or not, I use for the takeoff. Then my material list is correct. I do my valley boards the same way for stick framing over trusses. I lay it flat on across the trusses up the valley when building. But I use it for the takeoff in CA..
  4. This plan has my way of doing the firewalls for duplexes... Look at the setting closely, much of what is happening is in the wall dbx. Have fun! I would love some feedback on my solution.... Duplex Fire separation .plan
  5. I have done a search. But I am not finding anything concerning CA being benchmarked on different computers. I am trying to find the best computer to run CA as fast as possible.
  6. I would like to know if anyone has seen or knows where to find CA being benchmarked on Mac's or PC's. I am ready to upgrade my computer again, and I am using a Mac trash can now. But I need a much faster computer, so I am not waiting for CA to work. I use CA 11 and it is very slow!! My budget is more than $10,00.00..... Model Name: Mac Pro Model Identifier: MacPro6,1 Processor Name: 6-Core Intel Xeon E5 Processor Speed: 3.5 GHz Number of Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 6 L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB L3 Cache: 12 MB Memory: 32 GB Boot ROM Version: SMC Version (system): 2.20f18 Illumination Version: 1.4a6 Thank you for any help in advance......
  7. After you are done drawing all wall's. Break the exterior wall at the firewall and then extend the fie wall to the frame of the exterior wall. After I di that I will auto frame the walls and then open the firewall and retain framing. I then open the wall framing and extend the studs down the size of the floor system. After that, I use a 3d camera and grab the firewalls on each floor and pull the bottom down the height of the floor system. Also, make sure you have the second-floor ceiling system set to 0" hight so the attic firewall frames correctly. I did a quick layout of this for you. Hope this helps... Fire Duplex.plan
  8. These are the details and parting wall I use to meet the building codes. Always draw a fire separation wall first. Then draw the walls that intersect it.
  9. I got it to work finally!! But know I need to know how to share it with guys.. lol Not sure if this helps but the I file did them in is attached.. Smart Vent-1.plan
  10. I'm on X10 but for some reason, my profile opens correctly but it shows as x8 not sure why. Thank for the help Joe! I will give tech support a try...
  11. It looks great in 3d. I just can't get that 2d right!!
  12. Hi Joe, I tried that but it does not move the 2d block. This is the import file I used to make it. Smart Vent-1.plan
  13. Alaskan_Son is who I think posted on this subject... But I can't find his thread.....
  14. No matter what I try I can not get the 2d symbol to aline with the 3d symbol... But I think I saw Mike B address this once. But I can't seem to find the thread.
