    The information below may no longer be relavent in 2020 with Drivers having reached Version 451.xx Series now.
    Links to Older Drivers also removed above as of June 23 2020.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    Possible Fix for those using older Nvidia Drivers
    Use the 382.05 Drivers
     
    Many seem to have issues with the new Nvidia 388 Series Drivers and Up ( 388.0 /.13/.33 etc)  installed automatically by Windows Update
     
    **edit....... just a note that the new 10 Series Nvidia Cards seem less likely to have these issues , but it's not unheard of.
     
    eg. The mouse cursor disappearing in 3D views and other weirdness seem to be some symptoms in Chief , I was also get Crashes with some sort of DirectX error , in other Programs , as far as I know Chief uses OpenGL not DirectX  (maybe both?) and Chief was not Open when that was happening
     
     
    One Possible Fix that helped me and a few others is Rolling the Driver back ( re-installing actually) ) to May's Version 382.05 , this Driver is no longer available since this week off the usual Nvidia Drivers Download page , at least for me, the oldest is 385.12 so below are the direct links to the download page for 382.05.
     
    Make sure you get the Correct Version as there is a Notebook/Laptop version too.
     
    Once you have Run the Installer you will also need to disable Windows Update from Updating Hardware Drivers or it will almost immediately re-Update you to to the 388.xx Driver again, more on that below too.

    How to disable Windows 10 Driver Updates
     
    The Full post is over at TenForums ( a great general Win10 Issues Forum) if you'd like to check it out....
     
    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/48277-enable-disable-driver-updates-windows-update-windows-10-a.html
     
     
    But I use the provided .reg files from there as they always seem to work .... I have zipped them and attached them below for easy download , you will need to run the OFF file for now , the ON file is provided so you can easily re-enable it when desired or needed.
     
    Drivers From Win Update Reg Files.zip
     
    And the Instructions from TenForums  ( all Credit to Shawn aka Brink over there for the Tutorial and Files above )
     3. To Turn Off Including Driver Updates in Windows Update
    A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 4 below.

    Turn_off_include_drivers_in_Windows_Update.reg
      4. Save the .reg file to your desktop. (Unzip the File above to a Folder for reuse , if you downloaded it 1st  and double click it from there)

    5. Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.

    6. If prompted, click/tap on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.
     
    It is usually recommended to restart your computer after a Registry Update , so do that before starting Chief again....
     
     
    If you need to Reenable Driver  Updates just use the other Provided file ie..... Turn ON_
     
    To Turn On Including Driver Updates in Windows Update   Turn_on_include_drivers_in_Windows_Update.reg   5. Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.

    6. If prompted, click/tap on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.
     
    It is usually recommended to restart your computer after a Registry Update , so do that before starting Chief again....
     
    Also if using a Laptop with two Video Cards ( Discrete Graphics ) make sure the Discrete Card is assign to be used in Chief or the HD Titles as Chief does not have a 3D Profile in Nvidia Control panel for example and is not always recognized as a 3D Application. How to below...

  3. Kbird1's post in Chief automatically lowers sill plate for stem wall was marked as the answer   
    Okay had a few minutes to look at this and it seems to work okay with the right settings for me........  ( in X14 at least )
     
    ie the Addition set at -7" as mentioned in the OP ( was at 1.75")  and the Pour/Framing group set to 2  ( mentioned above ) in the Addition Room DBX also.
     
     
     

     
  4. Kbird1's post in Is it possible to change display order of overlapping symbols in floor plan? was marked as the answer   
    Yes , look for the Black and White Drawing Order Icon on the Edit Toolbar , or you can also do it in the Symbol's DBX and move it to the Back ---layer 39 or at least one display layer under the Tall Cabinet.

  6. Kbird1's post in How to remove tray ceiling? was marked as the answer   
    haven't looked at plan but "auto trey ceilings" do not like invisible walls/Room Dividers, which it appears you have between the two areas.
     
    In that case I use a P.Solid with a Hole for the Tray instead, with the Room's Ceiling set to the Higher height.

  7. Kbird1's post in Default sets was marked as the answer   
    sorry looks like my brain got ahead of my fingers late last night, and I was thinking Saved Plan Views (SPVs) apparently not Default Sets.
     
    However they can be imported just like the SPVs from the Default Residential provided by Chief.
     
    Open the Default Residential Plan Template  ------  File> New From Template  should take you right there....
     

     
    Then File EXPORT and export the Default Sets, and Layersets  to a backup directory/folder for future use.
     

     
    Now in YOUR Plan     goto File > IMPORT and import the Default Sets and then Layer Sets you just exported.
     

     
    You can also import the SPVs directly into You Plan as Mentioned and also the Plan Defaults if needed which should more or less give you a full X13 based Plan.

  8. Kbird1's post in Is video card error #272032210 fatal? was marked as the answer   
    Ask Sales if you can be downgrade to the 2021 Version, (with rebate)  it uses the old  X12 Graphics Engine and should work fine,
    or
    Ask for a refund and just use your 2015 Version.

  9. Kbird1's post in Realtime Ray-Trace Cannot see out windows was marked as the answer   
    Hi, your sample plan isn't really per how Chief would work as technically you are standing outside looking at a single wall...... which
    for a 3D lighting Engine is a whole different ballgame......  so normally I'd build build a 20'x30' house with roof and monoslab
    foundation and add  some lighting (cans) and more Windows for a true to life representation........
     
    As Rene pointed out use 3D Trees not Tree Images from the Library.
     
    Turning Off Refraction in RTRT will take way the glass Reflections so you can see through to the vegetation......
     
    Also if using RTRT make sure you let it run enough Samples so that the Glass isn't pixelated too ( perhaps 2500 is where i usually Cap my samples )
     
    *** I see the new  Forum file size Limit is 14mb now..... so I can't repost the file with the 20x30 house.

  10. Kbird1's post in Help working with rough openings... was marked as the answer   
    He wants to Input the RO at say 36" x 60" and have Chief automatically size the window with his 5/8 " RO size accounted for ie  window is 34 3/4" x 58 3/4"  which isn't possible ( yet) but the Schedule can report it like that.....
     
     
    continue what you are doing and just remove Chief's  RO Column and add a new Custom Column of your Own called RO using the Width and Height Macros and then add a second custom Column call Window Size with a macro the uses the width and height macros - (minus) the RO macros built into Chief and the Schedule can / should display the way you want it to ( CA works in decimal inches and I haven't converted it below. )  and once setup in your template plan should be automatic.
     
      
      
     
     
    # RO Size  MACRO CODE
    %width%" x %height%"
     
    # Window Size  MACRO CODE
     
    w = owner.width - (2*owner.rough_opening_side)
    h = owner.height - (owner.rough_opening_top + owner.rough_opening_bottom)
     
    w.round(2).to_s + " x " + h.round(2).to_s

    It is $2965 currently on Sale ...perhaps to month end ? as I think prices go up Feb. 1st though some have already like Training.
     
    AFAIK you can only buy it direct    OR  2nd hand from the Offers Forum and have the licence officially transferred to you,
    $100 or upto $400 for a secondary seat) but that would not include SSA. ( $525 till month end - $595 after)

  18. Kbird1's post in Graphics card for Chief was marked as the answer   
    CA has always recommended the Nvidia Gaming Cards like the GTX and now RTX 2000 or 3000 Series , as CA does not take advantage of the extra Hardware in Pro. Cards like the Quadro's or now newer A-Series.
     
    However other Software can and will ...if you run the likes of Blender, or Eng. Programs etc. etc
    Check out the List of Programs supported by by Nvidia's Studio Drivers (vs Game Ready) for more examples.

  19. Kbird1's post in Mansard Roof and Dormer Help was marked as the answer   
    Ok , that helps , it's still a Gull Wing but it appears they had to make the top almost Flat ...to perhaps met a local height restriction?
     
    You will need to build the Gull Wing, turn off Auto Roof Build, then Manually add the 4 almost flat ( 1/2" : 12 ?) triangular Planes.
     
    Mick.
     
    * I did this is a new Plan as your Plan is having issues with the Gull Wing Roof for some reason.....
     


  20. Kbird1's post in Minimum Display Size? Dimensions too big when scrolled out? was marked as the answer   
    Leave it on Zero.....
     
    The issue here I think though is you need to make a new Dimension Default for working on smaller Areas eg CAD Details....
     
    ie. make a 1" scale , 2" scale and 3" scale Dimension default.
     
    ie 1" Scale
     
     
     
     
    you haven't done you Sig. so no idea which version you are or etc

  22. Kbird1's post in Poured footers and slab on a sloped terrain was marked as the answer   
    It appears you have made the Floor a 4" Slab for level one ( good) but have not created the Foundation Level (0)
    which will give you the walls shown in the Stepped Foundation Article. 
     
    Have you begun working through the Tutorial Guide? ( see Help Menu if not )  see page 49 for the basic technique
    to build the Stem walls.

  23. Kbird1's post in Can't get roof rafters to be 16 " oc, reverts back to 24" oc each time was marked as the answer   
    I think you got it now ?  but Chopsaw is right...... Existing Roof planes do not rebuild via Defaults ....in newer Versions it will warn you that you need to use Edit All Roof planes instead.
     
     
  24. Kbird1's post in How to move a kitchen sink toward the front of sinkbase cabinet was marked as the answer
