  7. My current laptop weighs 2.6kg or 5.7lbs...I7, 8gb ddr3, 1tb drive, gt 540m 1gb.... I take my laptop to clients homes to input 3d model and again to show them final design..i wanted something somewhat light but good enough not to hamper me with ca. This one below is 5lbs...a mac book pro 15" = 4.4lbs...also $ to have this but it is twice the price.

  8. Is there no way to define gables material from cabinet faces? I want to be able to show a customer different cabinet scenarios...too bad cabinet and drawer/doors cant be controlled all at once? cabinets and doors and drawers are under materials but gables you have to go into cabinets to change, shouldnt gables be set from cabinet doors?

  10. I was looking at the new mac book pro..but pricey at 3K cdn for the 15"...what about this rig?
  11. I need a new lap top, how important is a dedicated video card? I am running x7 now. I want a light lap top to take to clients but powerful enough to run CAx8
  12. Thanks Mark for this tip, i have X7, i dont see a custom face and locking ability, is this an X8 feature? If so you would think they would have just fixed the blind corner cabinets with the new realease? David
  13. HI everyone, i am trying to make a blind corner cabinet and it is not working. it looks like there needs to be a filler so door on either cabinet can open but ca makes it an opening and will not allow any modification to this. What am i doing wrong? Any help is appreciated. David
  14. I have so many duplicate folders i cant tell if i am coming or going. I have 3 folders called libraries under my user catalog and each one has every folder that is already under user catalog as well as 5 texture folders, crazy!
  15. Thanks Jere, i can do this for some of the small folders, but i have some very large folders that are duplicated. I have 6 texture folders with over 14,000 objects in i select and right click and delete file, ca copies items first and then deleted them, it takes about 15-20 mins to do this for just one. I thought there might be a location on my drive that i could delete duplicates easier. David
  16. Not sure how i have so many duplicate user libraries but i do. It takes forever to delete these. Is there a way to clean these up? I suspect it is slowing down my library from opening. Thanks
  17. I want to thank all who responded, I cant believe this community helps everyone so much, its awesome. All good points and i just redrew some of the items ie a square instead of shower, etc. David
  18. Hi everyone, i am doing a reno design and did a asbuilt plan and then converted it to a cadd detail. When this is done the fixtures change from my initial colour i have chosen as orange to black. If i explode the fixtures then i can change some lines back to orange but some i cant and some like the sinks show all the areas as triangles that turn the fixture a solid colour. Any ideas on the best way to keep these one colour. I want to load this cadd file in background to show existing plan while i revise for reno. David
  19. Steven, that is great to hear, I hope it comes soon David
  20. i called bosch and they confirmed they glm 50c sends the same data as the glm 100c only difference is the 100c scans to 330' vs 165' I called CA and they said that according to their supported devices the glm 50c is not one of them. The program recognizes the glm 50c i dont understand why the room planer will not take data? Come on Chief add this to the supported devices, it cant be so hard when the glm 100c is already there. David
  21. Thanks lew, I will contact ca tomorrow. You would think that if the Bosch 100c works the 50c should as well? David
  22. I just bought a bosch glm50c blue tooth laser measure and room planner recognizes it but it will not update measurement on plan? Any ideas on why? I have an ipad air which came out in late 2013 early 2014. I wanted to use on a measure tomorrow, i guess not. David
  23. Just getting back into CA...i had exterior casings turned off.
