  1. As Joey shows, when most window manufacturers are talking 1/2 inch, they mean 1/2 inch overall ie 1/4 inch per side, and 1/2 inch at top. When you set your rough openings in Chief at 1/2 inch, that's 1/2 inch PER SIDE which obviously gets you to 1 inch. Just adjust your rough openings to 1/4 inch per side, leave the top at 1/2 inch and bottom at 0 and you'll be set.
  2. That's... You know, @Alaskan_Son has started something aimed at a number of us, I have pushed right back, it's escalated and I've called him out publicly inc pointing out the inconsistencies of his stance in another thread (apologies to Ranger for him getting caught up in it).... Here's the thing though... whilst I certainly disagree with his stance (and the use of down votes in a disagreement) at least he has the guts to articulate his case....... I respect that....unlike some of you who pile into the up/down votes anonymously... not only just to me but to others involved in this thread.... If you disagree, and want to opine on the matters at hand, have the intestinal fortitude to make it known and articulate a position publicly instead of hiding behind an anonymous vote.....
  3. I'd suggest you go away and look up the meaning of subjective then re-read your own posts..... As for down votes.... that's very noble of you..... not quite true but I like the intent.....
  4. Swooped in and ripped on the OP? Has it occurred to you in your entire crusade that even though the OP might use cm in 3D software (or even in noughts and crosses if he likes), we are pointing out it's not a generally accepted format in architecture and we have the right to do so on a forum on the internet? Just as you have the right to post a banal image completely unrelated to the OP? For all we know, next time he might want to use cubits or leagues for his purposes, and whilst yes there might be a work around, CA is NOT a 3D centric program but an architectural one. Or.... does he have the right to tow a 5th wheeler with a Honda Ridgeline? Sure... is there a better way? Sure again..... Are you going to stand there and criticize everyone who points out a truck might be better/that Honda isn't the right way? Who knows.... Just because he wants to do something that is not a generally accepted method doesn't mean we aren't allowed to point it out and no one (inc the OP) has appointed you the thought Police....
  5. Firstly let's just remember something you started here..... you're quite entitled to give your lecture..... and have a dig at all of us... but the saying about glass houses rings true for you too....(and you've again used yet another straw man argument)
  6. Aaaah... a down vote instead of an answer...? Figures.....
  7. Good... you get it..... But... I'll play your (straw man) game.... exactly HOW has it affected you? and while you're at it.... love to hear on what basis you think the standard of using mm is 'subjective' .... ?????
  8. You're answering a question nobody asked.....
  9. It's called a discussion......
  10. Agree with others here.... I come from the metric world and in 20 some years of building and drawing I've NEVER used cm's...
  11. If you download the breckenridge floor plan on Chief's website you will see in his cross sections he is showing web floor joists. Although I haven't watched them, no doubt there are framing videos relating to that project that show how it was done....
  12. You guys are legends.... no, I don't have individual layer sets as I have assumed (DOH) that the layer sets are the same as eg 1/4" and have just left them as the default for each of my plan views. Consequently my dimensions have been all over the shop as I have to do a new lot each time I want to print a plan.... I guess I have to go back and create individual layer sets for all of my views now...... Quick question though, do I need to go back and do that for every project or is this a 'set up a template' solution?
  13. Hi All I'm working on a plan that has a heap of saved plan views and somewhere along the way I've made an error but can't for the life of me figure out why...... and I know it's something simple... In short, changes I make on 1 view eg if I add dimensions on a plan view, other plan views are updating with those dimensions. I am using eg 1/4" scale annotations across a couple of plan views.... which I have made through the project browser by creating a new saved plan view... could this be why I am getting linked plan view changes? Thanks
  14. Mate it's just a semi frameless shower..... Why would you want to go away from simply using shower walls and setting heights as required as you said? If you want to show the frame either chuck in a Polyline solid or a note on the plans/elevations. Trying to find a quick way for an enclosure ignores either the set down or hobb detail and fall required in Oz. If you're not going to address that then I'm not sure why you'd want to create an enclosure?
