  1. Hey Richard, As I finish up what I hope will be my last plan in Chief, I ran into the same height adjustment issues. The engineering shifted to 24" Open Web Trusses (OWT). After adjusting the Floor Structure in Defaults, deleted the 18" trusses, I re-drew the new trusses. All data was correct but the trusses did not draw as 24". A few Floor beams I added were correct, which clued me in on the error, but it was not until I reached out the Michael Pache was the problem solved. He suggested showing the floor structure as I-Joist and then when all is fine, delete the i-Joist and manual
  2. Hey Mr. Scott, any moves on your end...did you end up with a different software?

  3. Thanks RR. It totally unlike me to go off the deep end. Just goes to show how bad it can be when one feels helpless and ignored. My apologies to all of you good people. The fact so many commented some positive and some negative goes to show how much You care and relate. As I said, I don’t hate the program. I just wish I knew then what I know now what Options I have and would’nt even be here. Chief has some pretty nice features it’s just too bad it’s not as complete as others so I’m off to new platform. If anyone is interested in what I am seeing that is not here. Drop me a private msg and I ca

  7. Why am I not suprised by this? Opening a X10 file I have been working on for a week now. An ESOP with the same problems I have been having since Day 1 of using Chief (And you wonder why I think Chief is Crap compared to ArchiCAD). I am only posting this for the benefit of the wonderful friends I have met over the years who have chosen to fight it out and deal with the BS at Chief. ASSERTION ERROR - (I.E. BUGS, BUGS, BUGS, AND MORE BUGS) "HOW MUCH YOU WANT TO BET CHIEF SAYS..."I'M SORRY BUT WE ARE UNABLE TO REPRODUCE THIS ERROR IN OUR SYSTEM" BLA...BLA..BLA... Assertion
  8. I gave you a thumbs up.
  9. It looks like there have been 5 updates since X10 went final release. I noticed on today's... 2 20.2.3.3 Update Notes 2.1 Electrical • Fixed a problem that could cause all electrical objects attached to walls to be removed from a plan when Undo was used after certain actions. 2.2 Roofs • Fixed a crash relating to frieze molding that occurred when some plans were opened. Although is good to know what is in the update vague notations such as "after certain actions." indicates they don't really know what caused the issue so, how can one know to test the update for problem
  10. Jintu, From this post. I too was shocked to read it. Please tell me I miss Read it?
  11. Graham, I respectfully disagree. If anything has a challenging "Learning Curve" it is Chief. I learned more from than anything else I have seen from the MFG. Frankly I am SICK of all the Marketing videos Chief is posting all over YouTube. If you want to see how easy it to use LUMION go to Lynda-dot-com and watch Brian Myers' Lumion Essential Training. Best 4:47 min I have spent on any training product. His courses in REVIT are some of the BEST in the industry, too. I know Jintu commented that Lumion may not be up with Chief now that Chief has PBR, and that has elevated the pro
  12. Yes Rene, outstanding! I love the lighter Oak look. Stunning job my Man! Thanks!
  13. 3D Warehouse is an incredible Resource for Chief, Revit and ARCHICAD by Graphisoft. Oh, and for use with Sketchup too. I know you can create "Collections" there, but what I would really like to know, if any of you have figured this out, is how to extract individual objects from Chief's library and create an exportable collection of multi-platform objects. Chief has some pretty good stuff too but what a PITA to have to drag a single object to a blank plan, display it in a 3D Perspective Camera, and then export the model to SKP, 3DS, etc for use in other apps. The best solution I hav
  14. Well, if you have watched any of the promo videos of Chief X10 the lady narrating the videos is Carrie. She’s a very nice person and a dedicated Chief Employee. My disappointment is with Chief X10 as a “Professional” product. IMHO, this is subjective. If they would simply cease with further devopment and focus on producing a core product that can truly compete with REVIT, Archicad and Vectorworks they would have a “true” professional level program. Is Chief a nice package for doing many design elements easily that look great and comes with a lot of stuff at a reasonable price .... absolutely!
