  2. So I'm designing a closet, we'd like to have the space in the corner be open. When I design the full height cabinet though theres a separation in the center indicated in the attached image. Is there a way to remove the separation so the space can be completely open?
  3. Hey so I'm using Chief architect x11. I was wondering where I can download 3D models to import in my files? I used to use 3D but I dont think it supports the x11 version anymore.
  4. So I'm working on this backyard with a uniquely shaped pool. I've highlighted the left side of the pool as it elevates a few feet, and I was wondering if there's a way I can elevate that side of it in a way that the pool still retains its shape?
  5. So I'm working on this backyard with a shaped pool. On the left side of the blue line, the floor is elevated a few feet, and was wondering if there's a way I can elevate that left side of the pool so it retains its shape?
  6. It gets too dark without it though
  7. So I'm in the process of ray tracing this vanity, but the knobs and pulls have bright/white shadows around them. It's not the first time its happened, I just want to know if theres a way they could cast shadows regularly.
  8. It kinda turns out like this, I'm just wondering how to make it seem like the light shines brighter and throughout the water
  9. Hey there so I'm rendering a project with a pool, and would like to know if theres any way to get the lights within the pool to shine through? I tried increasing the intensity but still doesn't work. Any suggestions? I'm using Chief Arch. X11 btw
  10. If i were to send over a chief architect file to someone with Sketchup, would they be able to open it as a .plan file?
  11. Gotcha. Would I be able to import a project from Chief Architect to any of these softwares and enhance them from there?
  12. Hey so I’m trying to find a way to make my projects look as photo realistic as possible. Ray tracings improve my projects a lot, but I was wondering if there are any other techniques or compatible softwares with Chief Architect to enhance how a project looks in terms of realism?
  13. So I have a pitched ceiling and not sure why but when I render/raytrace it, the soffits holding it up are lit up by the sunlight outside. How could I fix this issue?
  14. Hey there, so I'm making a swimming pool with curves and I would like to add the edges outlining the pool. Is there a more time efficient way to go about it instead of just making little polyline solids around it?
  15. Hey there, how could I go about making a box window without the walls protruding as well?
  16. Hey there how would I go about making some of these materials look more photo realistic? More specifically with glass and water
  17. Hey there, so I'm trying to add a second floor to a house where there are roof planes already on the first floor. What would be an ideal approach to build the roofs on separate floors?
  18. So I'm trying to add a pool to this roof, and I would like to adjust the flooring so that it slopes downwards from the step, rather than just staying flat. Any way I can go about it?
  19. Is there anyway I can attach these two glass doors together, essentially removing the corner of the wall?
  20. I don't think so, I divided the section of the room, then decreased the height for that area but the entire room adjusted to the height I inputted.
  21. How could I go about changing the ceiling heights of the same room like in the attached picture? There's a second floor above this room. I used the room divider tool, but the whole ceiling still adjusts to the same height.
  22. So I have these lights placed on a porch, and while they're turned on, they're not casting any shadows, so when I render it the area still remains dark. Is there any way to fix this issue?
  23. So I'm trying to make a shower doorway with a casing around it, but I'd like the casing to end at the point where the texture in the wall changes as shown in the picture. Would anyone know how to go about doing it?
