    Use Chief Architect for Part Modeling?

    Thanks for the help everybody. I don't think CA can do what i'm trying to achieve. The part that is hollowed out also has a bend in it. We need these parts to be accurate because we want to print them on a 3D printer. Any other suggestions on how I can make this work? Thanks again!
  2. Hello Everybody! Has anybody used chief architect to generate machine parts? I'm trying to do a 3D model where a solid 1/2" tube fits into a 3/4" x 1/8" thick hollow tube. Is this even achievable in Chief Architect and if so any suggestions on the easiest way to go about doing it? Thanks for all the help!!

    Printing - Reds are not printing red

    I thought it was a plotter problem too........and there's a good chance it is. I just can't figure out why a word doc with red text prints or "plots" perfectly but the PDF file or CA file will not print correctly.

    Printing - Reds are not printing red

    I've attached the CA file and layout to see if anybody notices anything out of the ordinary! Thanks for the help!

    Printing - Reds are not printing red

    Yes the lines in the PDF are red. I create the PDF in CA under print / PDF creator. I believe I have Adobe Reader X on the computer. What confuses me is when I print the layout straight from CA, it has the same issue with the red lines.

    Printing - Reds are not printing red

    I did not save the word doc as a PDF. But I tried printing the layout straight from CA, without creating a PDF and I have the same issue.

    Printing - Reds are not printing red

    I printed a word document with red text from the same computer to the same plotter and it worked perfectly. So, I'm guessing it has something to do with CA and it's settings. Anybody have any other ideas? Thanks again!

    Ok.....I tried printing the layout straight from CA and still have the same result. I talked with CA support and they said they have never come across this issue. I will try HP support.......
  10. Hello Everybody! I'm not sure if this the right place for this question but I figured I would give it a shot anyways. I created a set of colored construction documents for a remodel job and I showed all the demo work in dashed RED lines. I created a PDF set from CA so I can put it on a flash drive and print it from another computer in a different room (there's no room in my office for the big plotter, plus it's noisy). When I try to print the PDF on my HP DesignJet 800 plotter, the red lines show up in a very faint yellow. If I print the same page on my desktop printer, it looks perfect. I have new ink in the plotter and when I print a "test" page, the red looks good. Does anybody have any suggestions or ideas of what I can do different? Thanks for all the help!!!
  11. Hello Everybody! When I turn on reference floor display, the solid wall fills in the floor above or below show up also and it makes things a little confusing. Is there a way to turn them off? I've attached a pic of the plan I'm working on for reference. Thanks for the help!
  12. Hello Everybody! I'm confused as to why the wall framing is not showing up for the screen porch. All the wall settings are the same as all the other walls. The framing for the small wall that returns into the living room area shows the framing. But the walls with the windows do not show the framing. I've attached some images of the area of concerned. I appreciate all the help. Thanks

    Callout Text Size?

    I understand and I will remember this next time. I was just asking questions because I was confused by his mumbling nonsense. He made it clear that he wastes a lot of his time on other peoples "problems". He would have saved a lot of his time and my time if he would have just said "attach the plan" or not even responded at all because there was no plan attached.

    Callout Text Size?

    Are you for real? I'm just looking for a little help while I try to learn this program. Don't you have Chief Architect? How hard is it for you to draw 4 walls, highlight the interior, create room elevation views and change the wall elevation camera to a callout in plan display. Because that's all I'm doing. And then when I change the callout size the text doesn't change. I even tried it in a brand new drawing file. It appears somebody else might have provided a simple solution that I GREATLY appreciate!!! And as it turns out, it was a simple solution! If you feel I was wasting your time with this post, then don't waste my time with your mumbling nonsense responses about "walking under a bridge that has 37 men and 3 damsels poised to pour red hot burning oil on me"......as you put it.
