  1. That's interesting Michael; I'll post if I notice that myself.
  2. Thank you Gene and Joe. Yes, I knew I could simply check "No room definition" on the shower wall to get the shower area included in the bath total, but I was hoping to be able to do so and NOT have to rework the materials. Lazy me! :-) Joe told me what I didn't want to hear: rework the materials. Oh well. Thanks again.
  3. Seriously, I am not a newbie, but this is always a dumb little thing that bothers me, so I am just throwing it out there: How do you get the total automatic room measurements to include a shower that is defined by walls (so as to create and preserve its own materials)?
  4. Michael, a very belated thanks. This project was placed on hold for a bit. However, you advice was very helpful and solved the mystery. Thanks again.
  5. Thanks so much, Graham. Thought that might be the case; makes sense.
  6. I'd appreciate it if someone could take a look at this old post (April 2015) and let me know the actual answer to whether or not you can set up raytraces in a queue, each with different lights turned on. In other words, set up scene 1 with certain lights on, start raytrace on that scene; set up scene 2 with different lights on, start raytrace on that scene, etc. As the original poster said, it is handy to do overnight work this way. Of course, best if one tests the raytrace(s) first by running it with a smaller image size. Thanks in advance!
  7. Hi All, Thanks for the replies. And thanks in advance for the help. Plan attached. Made it as small as I could, but still had to put it on Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9kfu82dp0zbbcnm/Valdez_Donahue Phase II Simplified for CA Question.zip?dl=0
  8. Hi Eric, Yes, I want each of the driveways (there are three in total, with some space in between; not unlike what you drew) to "cut into" the curb along the road, just as you have drawn. If you still need to see the plan, just let me know. Thanks very much.
  9. Hi All, OK, I give. No clue why I can't get my driveways to cut through the curb, creating a nice, graduated slope. Dumb mistake, I'm sure. Someone show me mercy; hurry. Please. :-)
  10. Surely this has been brought up before, but does anyone have suggestions for creating bullnose/rounded drywall interfaces/corners? This is in extremely common use here in the Southwest and I need to incorporate this feature throughout a plan. I know that Chief does not have this capability built in. Thanks in advance for any help!

  12. Need help placing outdoor outlets on surfaces other than exterior structural walls. I gather that a similar issue has been addressed with regard to placing indoor outlets on cabinets (e.g., kitchen islands, etc.), but I do not think this is true with regard to placing waterproof GFCI outlets outdoors (e.g., on retainer walls, terrain walls, in or around outdoor kitchen areas, pergolas, etc.). However, this arises as an issue in many of my outdoor designs. Can anyone please help me out here?. Thanks very much in advance...
  13. Jintu, how generous and kind. I must say that I've gathered that your expertise in this area is to be respected, so I appreciate your offer all the more. Speaking of your expertise, I must say that I went ahead and used the "Interior Settings by Jintu" that I saved from the Forum a while back. I believe that the result may well be the best ray trace (in this case, a 360) I've produced yet. Thanks for being such a great contributor here. And I assure you that I will be in touch soon.
  14. Thanks, Graham. Having no recollection of having this light-bleed issue before (at least to such a significant degree) I am a bit surprised that having a roof on, as well as having a foundation in addition to a floor, makes such a difference. But the comments you make about the sunlight's properties in Chief Architect certainly make sense. If the light we all want to pour through the windows is to look at all realistic, then it makes sense that the sun would have to behave like, well, the sun. :-)
