    Slab Calculation Automation

    Is anyone offering a monolithic slab automation tool? Looking to be able to easily and quickly reference / display my total slab footage as well as separate out garage, porches, etc.

    Material Painter Help Please

    Can I change all my outside trim color at once without changing the inside trim also? And vise versa. When I choose floor or plan mode it also changes the inside trim color.

    Convert Chief Designer plan to Chief Architect Plan

    When zooming in it will glitch/freeze/lag. I have a generated wall in a gable that is showing on the first floor when in working/plan mode, only way to get it off my view is to delete it but of course it deletes the wall, if i put it back-same thing. I was just zooming around the exterior in camera mode and it said critical error - i had to shut down and restart the whole program. I'm not having these issues with any other plans. I can definitely change the colors of the walls in display but given the other issues i was thinking maybe i couldn't just open old Designer files, i was thinking maybe i had to import or convert them or something. Since that's not the case i'm not sure what's up. I'd really like to upload the file however I had two plans stolen last year (ugh) and i'm sure 99% of people on here are great but I love this plan and don't want to take any chances.

    Convert Chief Designer plan to Chief Architect Plan

    David - sorry, just abbreviating. I'm using Chief Architect 11 and was referring to Chief Architect Designer

    Convert Chief Designer plan to Chief Architect Plan

    It's glitchy. I was just working on one and it actually said i had a critical error, i had to shut the whole thing down. I really don't think it's my computer, it's only a year old and i'm not having issues with anything else - or even any other plans.
  6. Can someone tell me how to convert a CA Designer plan to Chief Architect? I had Designer for a bit and now using A 11. When i just open a plan i previously worked on in Designer the walls i insert in Architect are a different color but most of all i seem to have technical difficulties with these plans.

    How to show SLAB sq ft

    This was the response from Technical Support, note i replied back that i was very surprised a software this nice and expensive didn't have this included, and i hope it will be added via an update at some point. Thank you Eric, i will look into Ruby. Thank you Dshall, i will look into both you mentioned, i also need this for every home i do and will definitely need a better solution than adding each room up individually with a calculator. "Unfortunately, these are not included in our program. A few workarounds would be to use CAD boxes/polylines to outline the area you want to calculate the square footage of and then when you open the CAD box/polyline it'll give you the area. If there are some that are disconnected, you'll just have to manually add them together and use a text box to show that square foot number of it all added up. The article below will show you all the ways we can calculate square footage.

    How to show SLAB sq ft

    Even if i'm just able to show it on one of the layout pages in the construction documents that would be great

    How to show SLAB sq ft

    Id like to show the overall living (already displayed) then below it overall slab sq ft and overall porch sq ft. I did the individual rooms but i'd like to display the totals instead.

    Blurry Export Pictures

    Hello Every time i export pictures they are not very clear. Attaching a quick sample (not an actual plan, just something to show the blur) If you zoom in at all you will see it's not clear. Specifically the house I'm working on right now is quite long and the exported pictures are terrible!! I am overlooking something. If someone could let me know how to export pictures properly (for layout and just for a picture file) i would appreciate it!
