    Mulled units = wrong sills

    I know, but since we use Chief to create CDs and not manuals, a door and window(s) are typically shown mulled together. The trim guys will take care of that in the field.... I am asking Chief to be consistent on their programming because nobody on earth will trim/mull units like that....unless the trimming crew do not know what they are doing

    Mulled units = wrong sills

    Wish Chief already had a solution for this - lazy programming IMO. Sills should be the same when mulling door or window units....tired of looking for workarounds

    Stairs - Issue

    Perry, the walkline is 12" from edge of stair, correct?

    Question about selling plans to home builders

    I would charge them a "re-use" fee after they have payed for the 1st one (concepts and CDs) I would not do it any other way

    Can Chief's Auto Elevations Match This?

    What about shading the glass, making it a dark color?

    Autocad gives you a message or warning flag that the reference has been changed - it is up to the user to update or not - however, if you save and reopen the drawing it will update all the references automatically

    Looks good! I would love to see or have the ability to control the linework for hatch, sharpness of shadows, outlines etc

    Shadows have always been part of architecture, specially for presentation and concepts - look at antique sketches and drawings - I think having them separates me from being just a drafter - Architecture is Art -

    I know Revit does, even Autocad Architecture (my main tool) can do it but it does not look that good, I am sure Archicad does it and even Softplan does....Vectorworks?

    What about using Technical Illustration with these settings?

    Scott - of course they did, the one with shadows was overdone and the stucco looks dark, too gray. I have learned that I cannot show anything that "suggests" a color to my clients, at least in the preliminary stages

    Justin, that looks good, wish there was a setting to sharpen up the shadows as needed.....Chief has a long way to go in regards to presentation graphics etc

    Glen - on the image you posted the hinge line is on the wrong side....is that a bug?
  15. I am not an expert Chief user, in fact, have not done a full project in Chief, I have been using it for concepts and 3d visuals etc. I still do my CDs in Autocad Architecture - Please take a look at the attached file - This particular client wants the drawings a certain way (specially all exterior elevations with shadows, dark glass, showing all wall materials, grades, etc, etc....> Can Chief generate auto elevations that can match the preciseness, look and style? I mean, I know it can, but will it take too much tweaking (time consuming??) Thanks for looking Raul Arise Design
