  1. I don't think it is a graphics issue because I can ray trace without an issue once I get a messed up camera view. And when I scroll all the way in to just a 12" or so view of an object it will show me the correct texture/color. Also, all my elevations work correctly - just camera and perspective full overview do not. Here are my specs - it is an Intel integrated graphics. Could it be a refresh rate or something? I also attached chief's preferences for the video card.

  2. I just transferred to a new computer and installed Chief X12 on it. I tried opening files and nothing will render, it takes forever to try and everything is mostly black. See attached image. Anyone know how to fix this? Or why it is happening?
  3. I'm having a problem where in a plan I previously had no issues with, if I take a cross section/elevation only my first floor and up shows, not my foundation or anything in the basement despite all the pertinent layers being turned on. Has anyone else had this problem or know a solution?
  4. I'd love to help you out on this. I can also do the structurals. I can't stamp the drawings but I can provide all the calcs to make the engineers' life easy.
  5. I have some free time and would love to work with you. I can do the framing plans with accurate beam sizing as well. Need material lists? No problem. Very reasonable rates. Thanks,

    No problem. Glad that worked out.
  7. Attached plan so you can review the settings. It's hard to understand exactly what you want. Posting the plan would be helpful. I'm sure Glenn is right and you are probably "fighting" the elevations from one level to another. I have the auto foundation set to hang the first floor inside of the foundation. If you only want one wall you will to pull the wall up in a section view. Untitled 1.plan
  8. Sheet goods are generally easy to cut. Also it wouldn't have to be an "all or nothing" kind of thing. 4x8's could be special ordered. England managed to do it in 1965.
  9. Ah, yes I see. I wonder whether Joey was using wall hatching in the attached drawings. I'd rather not have a "non-walkout" basement on two levels.
  10. Try toggling the "Walls, Layers" layer on in one layer set and off in the other.
  11. I don't think the trusses are the problem. There should be attic walls that are getting created to cover the truss ends. Try going to Defaults/Walls/General and make sure Auto Rebuild Attic Walls is checked. Test plan attached. Untitled 1.plan
  12. Or you could create a single layer wall for the siding and put it on the floor above for the perimeter.
  13. As far as know there is no way to edit the z-height of wall layers. I have run in to this same problem a few times and I used a molding p-line to represent the siding.
  14. That's the beauty. There are no fractions. Just meters, centimeters, and millimeters. All divisible by 10.
