    Copy and Paste in Place X12

    I absolutely hated it at first, took awhile to manually add the original tool back in but I never seem to use it.

    Fastner symbols/catalog

    may or may not be of any use as they're based off metric sizing but Ive added these to my library along the way from a free dwg resource site, theres an assortment of bolts, coach screws etc Bolts.calibz

    Top five hotkey setups! Name yours and why!

    amen to that, I only recently reset the defaults for hotkeys after picking up some tips in a video by Rene with shortcuts editing CAD (ie. holding F for fillet or C for concentric resize)that no longer worked as the defaults intended.

    Accurate creation of 2d details and 3D objects

    you can use this in conjunction with the CAD point tool to specify the start point if there is a snap point available and you don't know its X,Y coordinates

    Any Matterport users?

    I did think about this way as another solution which adds value to be able to use the imported model correctly oriented if required. I also thought you control the height of the plan view camera but that may be a throwback to revit many a year ago. I just figured rotating the symbol was the easiest as youre in the dialogue to import anyway, plus adjusting the cut plane is simple by moving the camera in plan view.

    you could import into chief as a symbol, rotate the model on the x-axis in the symbol spec. dialogue so you can cut a section through it which gives you a plan view then cad detail from view.

    Herringbone Pattern

    Not quite an easy solution and never used personally but you could try hatchkit, or it is possible to manipulate patterns in notepad albeit more complicated. Both covered off in the thread below. It would be nice to control the height and width of the pattern as you can with the Grid patterns though

    Schedules in X12

    each category expands which has all the items as per X11 to filter

    Rectangular Polyline Default

    I appreciate that and hitting tab makes a pretty quick process, just thought I'ld question it

    Rectangular Polyline Default

    After the rectangular polyline tool is selected and you click in open space on the plan it drops in a default square 600x600 or 2 feet x 2 feet, is there anywhere that this can be altered?
  13. I find some apps keep the taskbar from hiding (spotify is a main culprit) until you open up and minimise again.

    How to create life-like grass?

    Agree with Chopsaws statement plus use of shadows from 3D trees from behind the camera is effective at breaking up the monotony, Chiefer is an expert at this. https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/gallery/image/2618-chief-architect-x9-3d-exterior-rendering/ https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/gallery/image/2616-chief-architect-x9-exterior-rendering/ https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/gallery/image/831-residential-architectural-rendering/

    Sending 3D perspective to layout

    zoom in and update the view, the closer you zoom in the finer it will refresh but when you print it will automatically update to the final quality. This could be wrong but I believe its the way chief handles images to keep things running faster/smoother and not bog down.
