    3DS Export Error

    Thanks!
  4. I have 61 windows in an existing plan and based on the recommendations of the manufacturer of selected windows, I need to change the rough opening sizes. All of the windows are currently expressing the 1/2" per side default and I need to change all to 1/4" per side. Is there a way to do that without opening each window individually? Thanks!

    3DS Export Error

    Okay, just to try something, I turned off all fixtures and furniture and it exported fine.

    3DS Export Error

    Trying to export a file to be rendered and getting this error. 3DS Export Error: K-15160 C exceeds vertex limit of: 65535. I check earlier discussions and I don't believe I have any Kohler toilets so I am not sure what to check next. Any suggestions

    Door Schedule Labels

    I recently upgraded to X9 and am working on my first window and door schedules. For some reason the label is including the size of the window as well on the schedule under "label" category. There does not seem to be a way to have just the callout in that column. Only width/height or height/width or width only. It makes the schedule confusing. Any tips on how have only the callout show in that column?

    Half Walls Sliced at Intersections

    That could work David. I will give it a go. Thank you!
  10. When half walls meet (in this case for a parapet, if the walls are of different heights, there is a gap in the cladding material. But not always. Note how it doesn't happen to the left of the front porch. How do you get around that issue? Thanks!

    Exporting Elevations To Layout Blurry

    Thanks guys!
  12. When I generate and elevation to send to the layout page in X8 the image is not as clear as it was in X7. I used to use the Technical Illustration view but now this option (as well as vector) is almost pixelated. Is there a setting that I need to change to get the elevations to be crisp again? I haven't changed any of the default settings.

    Intermediate VS Advance Classes

    Thanks! I just went to do that and the intermediate class is full and the advance class isn't there anymore. I'm pretty aggravated about the way this training is handled. It took way too long to get a response from them initially, they sent along a survey to determine ability (after my second request) then didn't reply with a suggestion until I have contacted three more times. Now the class is full and the other option doesn't exist. Considering how great the tech support guys have been over the years I am really surprised at how badly this has been handled. Needless to say, no training again for now.

    Intermediate VS Advance Classes

    I have been using Chief since it came in a little box with a porch on the front about the size of a VHS tape but I know that it has capabilities far beyond those which I am using. I wanted to find out if I should take the intermediate class or perhaps even the beginner class. Unfortunately by the time I got a response back from the training department the intermediate class was full. Have any of you taken these classes? Will I be in too deep if I take the advanced class? I have attached a plan set that pretty much shows my abilities. And just for fun a couple shots of the house currently under construction. We do design/build/interiors/logistics.

    Edit of Elevations on Layout Pages

    There are crazy things that happen with the drawings that I used to be able to edit away. For instance, on a very simple stucco cabana that I am working on now, when I removed the sills on the openings, all the parapet wall junctions at the top of the exterior walls reappeared on the 6 exterior elevations. The only way to get them to go away was to break each corner and then rejoin them on the 2nd level (floor) where the parapets are located. These quirks I used to be able to fix quickly but not now. Additionally the line quality of the print as pdf isn't nearly as good as it was on X7 unless there is some sort of setting that I can't find. The exported vector views are not what they used to be and I have no idea why.
