  1. I'm looking for some suggestions on how to build the sloped ceiling underneath the stair platform. I can make a sloped ceiling plane, but then I don't' know how to build it out. All of the other methods I've seen require building a roof. However this does not have or need any roof framing. I guess I could build a polyline solid and save that as a soffit? Is that the best way to do it? It's kind of an odd setup if you ask me, but I need to include the detail in an as built plan for a remodel project. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
  2. I'm drawing a plan for a second floor home office space that includes an elevator. The elevator is essentially a round tube with windows. I was able to closely recreate the look of the elevator by creating a round room with windows and a door. The problem I am having is that I cannot get the ceiling of this "elevator room" to go all the way up to the ceiling of the larger space it's located in. For some reason part of the wall goes to the ceiling, but other parts do not which leaves a weird gap around the top of the elevator. The entire space is a reverse gable, therefore it has a sloped roof/ceiling plane. I suspect this is part of what's causing my problem. Can anyone help me figure out how to get the elevator walls to extend all the way up to the sloped ceiling? I attached two photos to help illustrate my problem.
  3. Thank you Ryan and Mark. I was unaware of that default plan setting. I checked "Ignore Casing for Opening Resize" and was able to accomplish exactly what I needed. Thanks again guys!
  4. Hello, I am working on an as built for a 1800's house. The door and window trim is 5 3/4" wide. My problem is that there a few instances where the door or window trim has been cut down to fit up against another wall. For example there's a window in one of the corners that is nearly up against the perpendicular wall. The trim on the left side of the window is 5 3/4" but the trim on the right side is around 3". Is there a way to place the window further into the corner and cut off the trim? Can I make the trim on only side of the window a smaller width? This is a pretty common occurrence in our work and I would like to have a method of solving this issue. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
  5. Hello, I need to purchase a new laptop that will run Chief Architect x12. I came across the MSI GL65 Leopard 10SFK-062 and thought it seems like a reasonable price for the specs. I am curious if anyone has experience with this laptop or a similar model. It's been a while since I purchased a laptop. I'm not very familiar with how NVMe hard drives work as opposed to a SSD+HDD setup. Here is a link to the Amazon product listing > https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Leopard-10SFK-062-i7-10750H-RTX2070/dp/B085B3GFRL I realize the topic of "what computer to buy" comes up frequently here so no need to remind me of that.
  6. Thought I'd post an example of the types of cabinet door modifications I need to make. I used Mark's door tool with some of my own adjustments to create the segmented door as three drawer fronts pictured here. The actual edge profile of the door is not unlike many manufacturer profiles, however I require the flexibility of using inset panels, specialty door/drawer configurations and other details with that edge profile. Cobbling together existing elements from Chief core catalogs and manufacturer becomes time intensive and often ends in having to hack something together that is less than satisfactory. Obviously Chief can't cater to every single use case, but developing workflows and "jigs" to produce extremely custom elements can get you really close!
  7. Hey Mark, This is incredibly helpful. Thanks for sharing! I've been tinkering with the plan file you posted and it's starting to make sense. I'm sure once I get the hang of it things will move much faster for me. Again, I appreciate you supplying the plan file and the how-to guide.
  8. Hi, I'm wondering if anyone here has experience creating custom doors for cabinetry. Most of our work requires a custom door/drawer style or some special wainscot panels. What is the best way to create a custom door/drawer and use it with Chief Architect cabinets? Thanks in advance for your help!
  9. Hi, I'm wondering if anyone on this forum has experience modeling custom cabinet doors. We work exclusively with custom cabinetry and often find ourselves needing to represent a one off door style. I haven't found a comprehensive tutorial on how to model a custom cabinet door style and use it within the Chief Architect cabinetry tools. I would appreciate if anyone here could point me in the right direction to accomplish this. Thank you!
