  1. I typically recreate an entire model in Chief from PDFs. But often the Architect has Revit or Sketchup models. Seems like a waste of time for me to recreate a model. I would love to import their model and then work on the Interiors instead of recreating from scratch. I also have a Landscape Architect that would love to do a flyover of his exterior and then bring my interiors in for a full home flythrough. Would love to be able to merge the two without doubling the work.
  2. I often collaborate with Architects and Landscape Architects and we all seem to use different programs. Some Sketchup, Revit or 3DS. Is it possible to import their models and collaborate. Can I export my model so they can add landscaping etc? I see several Export 3D models but can't find any training videos on how to share models with other professionals. Anyone have experience collaborating with different 3D modeling software?
  3. I am really struggling with the coloring of the Physical Based Renderings. They cast a pink or blue/green color to everything. I have adjusted backgrounds and sun saturation to no avail. Anyone have any tips? I have attached some examples.

  14. I recieved a Revit DWG file and only see some of the layers. All the walls are missing. I haven't had this happen before. Do I need to do something special with these files? I have attached the DWG file I received. 843903671_206Monarch-3DModel(3).dwg
  15. I have an assistant and we try to work on the same file. We are really struggling with missing information. She will backup the plan and share with me. All her images are saved in the same folder but there are still missing files. Is there a way for two people to work on the same file on different computers without this frustration?
