    i hear ya guys. the homeowner just doesn't understand the process on his project and is getting very impatient of only two weeks in engineering. this project has been quite the changeup for me to say the least. i hope what i turned into the engineer on friday gets stamped on monday because i fulfilled every request he wanted to see. if he asks more of me the homeowner is going to flip out.

    Thanks for the feedack guys. This is the first time i have dealt with an engineer one on one and making his changes myself. Where i used to live no engineering was needed. I actually like my stuff stamped. Takes the responsibility off me.

    Yeah, it has gotten real strict where i live. Most clients and builders are happy with my work, but then you have the one every now and then that picks the drawing apart and gives me their live story on what they normally see on plans. Cant win all the time right? In no way am i being sarcastic to those mentioned, every one is different. I just like the easy going ones lol.

    No, what i mean is all my clients up front know what i provide, up to the point of it being at an engineering level. The client shops around for their engineer at their cost and once they find one most of them ask for the cad files on the basic plan views and i never hear back for anything else and the client gets them stamped.

    For you guys who need an engineer to stamp your work in your state or town. What have your experiences been like? Do they mostly ask for the dwg files if they need to make changes or do they go back and forth with you on what they want you to change or add before they stamp it? Mine has mostly been them asking for the cad files automatically and thats the last i hear from them. This current project has been looked over by an engineer and i am having to do all his work. He has calculated lvls and other members but has had me do all the work. Anyone else dealt with this?

    trim

    i call it exterior trim, hides the imperfections at corners. for those who may wonder, polyline solids worked great with a wood material and paint color.

    Recording walk thru's

    Very true. To me 2d black and white equals an autocad presentation. Why not use chief to its potential. Looking forward to trying the path. I assume you will need some sort of video editor to add to the walk through like music?

    https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/10132/breckenridge-walkthrough-video.html?autoplay=10132 How do they get this to walk so smoothly for a walk thru? Zooming in with the wheel does not give that kind of presentation. And i would love to know how to add music to the presentation. That is a great addition to make the vid more professional.
