    FRAMING DETAIL HELP

    Eric, i was able to import your wall into my layout but can not get it to frame. It frames everything but that wall. Am I missing anything? Gene, my engineer always reviews our projects as specs what is needed.

    Yes Eric, that is the closest one. I will open the one you sent and see what I can do and post any other questions. As usual, this group of Chief Architect users never ceases to amaze me with the want to help others. Awesome group, thanks!

    FRAMING DETAIL HELP

    Eric, that is pretty close to what I am trying to create. I can then add in the PSL Post manually. I have been changing different items and found that if the exterior wall is balloon framed then I can place the windows higher and the way I'd like but still cant get it as close as you did on the first one. I must have settings wrong in the wall structure tab.

    So, on the second floor wall I have to uncheck retain framing? What are the correct settings in structural section for the main wall and the gable wall.

    Alaskan Son, that is the way I see it being build along with my engineer.

    Ideally on the exterior wall I want to have a PSL post extending up to support the structural ridge. I am going to duplicate that same PSL post in the kitchen wall. The structural ridge will extend back to the second floor wall and tie into a beam pocket.

    When I do framing over view I can see the framing on the inside gable but nothing on the exterior gable. I went through the help videos and cant get this correct. I want my wall to have a double top plate and then have the gable built to accept the windows. Hope that makes sence

    FRAMING DETAIL HELP

    Good Afternoon All, I am having issues with my drawing and could really use some help. This is a whole house renovation we are working on and I have viewed the help videos and still can not get my 2 gable walls to display properly. is there something I have set wrong or just plainly enough doing wrong. the issue is in the 4 season room. this is an addition to the back of the existing home, about 8 feet of the addition is in the kitchen and will have a 8' ceiling and the rest of the addition will have cathedral ceiling with either 2x8 or 2x10 rafters and close cell insulation to meet codes. Thank you in advance for any and all help! In some of the 3d and framing views from the interior looking out the gables are missing, also when I tell CA to re-frame it always changes items...

    Aladdin Hasp key

    This happened to me with same version. Contacted chief and they were happy to charge me for a new key or a key entry method. I looked at the price of that and upgraded....have to say upgrading was the best choice!

    Time for a new mouse

    I am in the market for a new mouse. Can anyone recommend a good mouse that works well with chief or that they have had success with. I have been looking at pro models as well as gaming models. Thank you in advance! Anthony Costanzo CR, CLC
