  1. I have been trying to get a brick band on this house with no luck. I can get it close using a soffit and changing the material but, in the camera, view it does not look the same. I have been using Chief since X3 and it is my first brick house. I can’t believe there is not a tool or a brick band molding for this. Is this something that must be done manually?
  2. Ok I just purchased it I hope this is my best option because being a laptop I am stuck with this for IO hope at less 4 years. Alienware x17 R1 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 11800H (8-Core, 24MB L3 Cache, up to 4.6GHz with Turbo Boost Windows 10 Pro English NVIDIA(R) GeForce RTX(TM) 3070 8GB GDDR6 17.3" FHD (1920 x 1080) 165Hz 3ms with ComfortView Plus 64GB DDR4 XMP 3466MHz 4TB (2x 2TB) M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD RAID0 $3,900.00 Thanks everyone for the input. I have a lot of things I stay up un so computers and hardware are not my thing
  3. Thanks KBird and Anne I can run CA but this computer drive me crazy. A Dell Alienware computer maxed out is $4,900.00
  4. Mark, Are you running X13?
  5. Thanks K-Bird Yeah but this is business and I always think about the fact that it is inevitable that i will run X13 I should go ahead and get it out the way and spend the money. I should just fork out the $4,900.00 and max out in hope to get to use it 4 years. I have only had this open 4 year but had to rebuild it twice for about $600 a rebuild so I am not to far off. Plus I am impatient.
  6. That is $226.00 more. Worth it?
  7. Ok, I was told I needed a new video card and I have to have a laptop. I have several offices I work out of and work out of town. I am relying on Chief and my IT guy to come up with best solution.(See Below) This comes in at $2,900.00 but if I wanted to max out the video card I can only go to 3080. It would be a Intel I9 for extra $1,600.00. The new 3090 is not available on a 17 inch screen I would appreciate your opinion of if this. Chief has already gave a Ok to it or if anyone think the I9 and 3080-card. Is worth the $1,600.00 What Chief did with this release was not right. I had a heads up this was going to happen so it wasn't a surprise to me. I cant imagine the surprise people are having out there.

  8. So I just found out that X12 Templates are not compatible with X13. They need to be about to bring in defaults for the new features. This X13 is a whole lot different than others. Chief just told me I cant even run it on my laptop and this is not a cheap laptop.
  9. I am looking at the Dell Alienware. Anyone see a problem with this one? ALIENWARE M17 R3 GAMING LAPTOP $4,169.99 $4,086.59 10th Generation Intel® Core™ i9-10980HK Windows 10 Home NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER™ 8GB GDDR6 - Max Performance 32GB DDR4 2666MHz 4TB (2x 2TB PCIe M.2 SSD) RAID0 [Boot] + 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD [Storage] 17.3-in. display Starting at 5.51 lbs i This maxed out configuration delivers superior performance with a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i9K processor, NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER™ graphics, and 4TB RAID + 512SSD. Also experience vibrant colors and high resolution with a UHD 4K display.
  10. OK so I figured out the material list. Now the dimensions on the joist is in inches not feet and inches. Chief said I need to write a Macro that will convert it to that but they don't give that assistants.. Anyone know how to write that Macro
  11. I did a materials list and have it set to buy. Most of my ceiling joist move to nominal sizes and I set up my Structural Member Reporting to buy list and deleted all sizes that are not nominal; I have a few joist that do not change to a nominal size. Any suggestions I have screen shot of 3 of them I am talking about. Shows 10'7 should have been 12'
  12. Yeah Glennw you are right I was using a default cabinet. I downloaded a cabinet off the manufacturers catalog and it works
  13. Glen, Yes that worked but not all the way. Cabinets are 2 different colors LOL I will get with Chief Tuesday and let you know
  14. Because if I open the plan in X12 it keeps the old defaults. Chief said there is a way of doing it but it would require a training session. I figured it cant be too hard.
  15. So I have a old plan that was drawn on a old template. I understand that if I just copy and paste it and rename it it will open up just fine in X12, but then I have to reset all my defaults, walls, windows, floors etc...Is there a way to copy and paste the plan into a new template? I tried to open the plan in X12 and import default setting but it only changes a few settings.
