  1. I'm no computer geek. I need to upgrade my video card like most others here to run X13, & next years X-14. Priority is my PC because I use it for 95% of my design work. I've gone looking and came across a NVIDIA GF3060i. My issue is, I'm not sure if the remainder of my system might not need upgrading as well. I live on a small coastal town with one computer store, which is closed because of...well, you know what it is. So I'm needing some help. Existing PC Windows 10 Home 1.0 TB Hard drive Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4590 CPU @ 3.30GHz 3.30 GHz RAM: 16.0 GB Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce GT-720 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor I'm most concerned with cooling, as in ensuring the rest of the system doesn't melt down because I upgraded the graphics card. Any of your computer minded folks see an issue?
  2. While disappointing to hear, my search continues. Thank you,Kbird1!
  3. Hey guys, I need a hand. I'm not a computer hardware geek and I need to replace my laptop. I'm looking at this model: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08H7VW34Y/?coliid=I1QJUTCZXTNAQK&colid=2AREYZXK4U9K2&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it and need to know if the graphics card will work for X-13.
  4. Thank you Joe, you nailed it. I'm not sure why this happens, but neither am a software / hardware guy.
  5. You can either print to PDF from Chief and send them to the ENG / Contractor. Or print the file layout. It either partially prints or the embedded PDF won't print at all..
  6. I have a HP 520T printer.. When I print from the CAD file, the PDF either doesn't completely print or doesn't print at all. I've even converted the CAD to a PDF file and tried printing from that and same thing occurs. Any ideas on what it is I'm doing wrong? Should i try Adobe PDF to convert? Truly stumped.
  7. It's been a real brain teaser. I know I've done it before, but I can't remember how to change the size of the text in the layout box on the sheet. The box title and scale text is huge and I'd like to downsize it to something less over sized. I don't have time to go through all 75 videos and hundreds of possible answers in the data base....
  8. Mick, wife just ordered four Toshiba Ext HD on Thursday. Should be here tomorrow morning. Prime here on the Island means it gets here in under a week....
  9. Solid advice Mick. I realised last night, well duh, I have X9 on my lap top , I'll just down load the information from it. I guess the answer was too obvious....
  10. Guess, that's my only avenue at this point Mark. Sounds like a tomorrow thing as the clock says it's "Beer O'Clock" here on Vancouver Island.
  11. Old system is a pile of smoking parts now. I guess I'm starting from scratch. Not the first time.
  12. Hey guys, I finally decided to do my update and started on my new PC with a fresh download of CA Premier X10. when it finished it was noted that none of my templates and bonus cats downloaded. Can some one tell me how to down load these manually? I've already tried the help - download - update way and got nothing. Any help would be appreciated.
  13. Video 1056 in the video library. https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/1056/import-a-surveyor-dwg-file-for-a-site-plan-or-terrain-perimeter.html I had to do a few of them to understand the importance of the steps they give.
  14. Thank you Gerry - Even limited ability is better than putting together tables each time I have to do energy calculations on build ups.
  15. Thanks Eric. I was poorly informed.
