    Bay Window

    Thank you Michael! That works perfectly and the video was so helpful for me as a beginner.

    Bay Window

    I appreciate the answers but I've tried a few of them and I'm getting goofy results. Like I said I'm an advanced beginner so if anyone could give a little instruction on how they accomplished that look. Don't laugh but this is as close as I've gotten with the molding polyline using the CA-35.

    Bay Window

    I'm trying to create this detail of a bay window and I'm having a heck of a time figuring out how to do it. If I could do an upside down hip roof on the bottom bay window with a raised floor. I'm an advanced beginner so I appreciate any help!

    Window separation

    Wow, thanks for all of the input. I'm using X11 Beta so I probably can't post the plan. I'll try all of the suggestions and see how they work. I'm coming from 30 years of using autocad so its frustrating for something so simple to be so complex! I'm loving Chief though and not having to manually draw elevations and sections is a huge time saver!

    Window separation

    Thanks Kbird1. I tried changing the separation and that doesn't stop the windows from joining. I'm attaching images from the house I'm working on. I want (2) 2x studs between the windows. Its framing them as one large opening.

    Window separation

    I have several windows 3" apart and I don't want them to join together. When framing the wall I want two studs between each window. Is there default setting somewhere where I can turn off the windows joining? Right now when I frame the wall it frames the 3 windows and one big opening. I'm fairly new to Chief so sorry if this is a simple question!

    Drafting Help Auburn, Wa

    I'm a building designer in Auburn, Wa and I'm looking for someone to help with drafting. I mostly use AutoCad but I've been doing more and more in Chief and would like to end up switching once I'm fast enough. I have to much work and need a helping hand. I do mostly residential work from additions to new homes. I would prefer someone local.
