  1. Hi there! I'm still interested. I'll shoot you a message and we can talk further.
  2. Thanks for the input but you're speaking martian to me Let me know if you want to collaborate on creating something new for this.. I think other calculations like attic ventilation, crawlspace ventilation, natural ventilation and glazing calcs could be simplified with a step by step table in chief if load calculations could be.
  3. For those of you that perform electrical load calculations or panel schedules for the electrical service on your projects, what resources have been helpful to you? Have you created any templates or worksheets for yourself to make this an easier process? Would you be interested in having a template in chief architect that another user has made? I'm curious who would be interested in sharing tips/tricks or anything that could be shared to used in chief architect. I have some things I've developed for my own use but not sure if others would find this useful or how many users incorporate this into their plans and services. Here's a few links I found really helpful: https://naffainc.com/x/CB2/Elect/EHtmFiles/Optional Method-Sizing Electrical Service.htm https://naffainc.com/x/CB2/Elect/EHtmFiles/Standard Method-Sizing Electrical Service.htm https://www.thespruce.com/calculating-subpanel-loads-1152758
  4. For the slope of that lot from your photo I'd recommend using the elevation lines feature for inputting the terrain data. I'm pretty well-versed in creating terrain models in Chief so feel reach out to me if you have questions and I'll see if I can help. Here's a few videos that you may find helpful: https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/412/creating-sloped-terrain-and-adding-retaining-walls.html https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/411/terrain-contours-absolute-elevations-vs-sea-level-elevations.html https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/250/adding-terrain-elevation-data.html https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/6082/grandview-how-we-modified-the-terrain.html

  6. I've gotten plans through Maricopa county and zoning a number of times and very familiar with their permitting process. Just message me if you still need help with this
  7. Hi there, I sent you a message. I'm happy to give you some input on tweaking the floor plan with a a few more details. Best of luck!
  8. I really like it and got to explore it quite a bit with a recent commercial project. Check out the code illustrations, especially for calculations - some were surprisingly useful! Not sure I'll pay $30 a month though.
  9. Thank you for sharing your files!  What a wonderful gift!

      You're very welcome! Let me know if there's any topics you're looking for content on in particular and I'm happy to see what I have. I focus on the 2D drawing aspects for permitting, not so much the 3D renders

  10. detail - stucco system assembly 1" foam wbs panel.calibz Here's a detail with a bit more pizazz I made for stucco siding (Western 1-Kote). stucco system per the following: Hot Arid climate (ARIZONA) 2x4 wood framed wall @ 16" o.c. 3/8" solid wood-based sheathing 1" EPS foam (continuous insulation) There's a PDF for whoever asked to view outside the .calibz file stucco detail with foam panel.pdf
  11. No, I'm sorry but that would be a considerable amount of additional work.
