    Some PBR Walls Glow

    The plan is too big to attach but here's a link for anyone willing to take a look.

    Some PBR Walls Glow

    That makes sense. It may have something to do with the sun. I dialed it back and it's improved. However, some of the walls this happens to are interior walls. It's even happening with some casing.

    Some PBR Walls Glow

    Anyone have an idea why some walls glow in the dark? I think it's happened before but it's a mystery. All the wall types and materials are the same for all the walls but some look like they're emitting light. It's odd.

    Roof help needed

    If you want different pitches you'll have to specify them in each plane (or group select). If you use the automatic roof plane tool they will all be the same unless you select the ones you don't want to have automatically changed by checking the Manual Roof Plane radio button. Then Chief will leave them alone.

    This is interesting, anybody seen this?

    Sounds too good to be true.

    Roof Challenge

    Eric and David and Glenn, thank you so much! I really appreciate your responses and your dedication to helping. Solved!

    Roof Challenge

    Hi all, I thought I'd have an easy handle on this but I'm a bit stumped. This entire existing house is two stories. The proposed family room is currently a courtyard. I want to enclose it and put a one-story family room with a roof that drains to the one outside corner. I'd rather avoid an internal drainage system because I don't think it's necessary. But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to draw the roof pitches. I'd probably do a 1/12 pitch because of the second-floor windows that look out onto the current courtyard. I'd be grateful for your suggestions. I posted the entire pan in case anyone wants a closer look. Untitled

    Recording cross section slider

    Thanks for the replies. I guess the short answer is no to automation. Too bad. It would make for incredible marketing videos.

    Recording cross section slider

    That sounds like a perfect solution. May I borrow your offspring?

    Recording cross section slider

    Not wanting to reinvent the wheel here. Anyone know the best way to record the cross-section slider without it being jerky? From a single vantage point I want to show a house being rendered from the ground up in 10 seconds, but using the slider manually it looks jerky, even when spreading the slider over the entire screen. I seem to recall a method that will automate this, but I can't find it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  11. Hi Adam,

    Just saw your post about old drawings you needed to access.  I have an old version of Chief Architect 9.5 and was working on it and broke the key.  What did you end up doing to access the older drawings?

      Jeez, it's been so long I don't remember. But thanks for asking!

    Hardware Schedule

    Thanks, Dermot. That's what I did. I hadn't known that hardware and millwork can't inherently be placed in a schedule. Is there a reason for this? At least for hardware?

    Hardware Schedule

    Yes, thanks.

    Hardware Schedule

    It must be a Manufacturer Library issue. There's no option to include it in a schedule. In this case, it's a Delta grab bar. Unfortunate, as the Chief grab bars are hideous for residential design.

    Hardware Schedule

    Anyone know the simplest way to create a schedule that includes hardware? I'm trying to add manufacturer's grab bars to a fixture schedule, but I see no place to add it or to create a custom schedule that includes hardware.
