    New EGPU question

    Update: Thank you for the info Ryan. I exchanged the NVIDIA for an AMD and everything works great!

    Google drive thead. (again)

    I have been using Google Drive at my office successfully for several years. To be safe, Chief suggests that the file be: downloaded, syncing stopped, worked on, re-uploaded, and syncing turned back on. I tend to be the only one in the office working on files so I access directly off Google Drive and don't have any issues.

    New EGPU question

    Hi, I am setting up a new GEFORCE RTX 2060 Super + Razer COREX for my MacBook Pro 15" and I am stalled. I have read through the threads on this forum and see that there are quite a few Chief / MacOS users successfully using an EGPU. I've loaded loaded my 2060 into the Razer and plugged it into power and my Thunderbolt port. 1. Where do I find the driver to download? NVIDIA supports only Windows. 2. How do I direct Chief to use this EGPU? Thank you, Susan

    Thank you for the suggestions, but I still can't get the framing to show. I made a copy of an Interior 4 wall, renamed it, removed the exterior drywall layer and it appears as drywall on one side and what looks like plywood on the other.

    Hi, I am working on an unfinished basement and would like to show drywall on one side of the wall and not the other (at the stairs) so the framing is visible on one side. 1. Is there a way to delete the drywall from one side of a wall? 2. I have generated framing. 3. I have tried the delete surface tool. 4. I've also tried going into the wall dbx and deleting drywall off one side of the wall. Thanks, Susan

    iPad with Apple Pencil

    I have an iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil and Room Planner. Yes, it works well, but I find it just as easy to use my finger.

    Angled Walls and dimension lines

    Found it!!

    Angled Walls and dimension lines

    Thanks! I did not know about the Additional Allowed Angles feature and I'd love to turn that on, but I've been searching for it and cannot seem to locate it. Are you sure it is in the Defaults?
  11. I am working on 2 jobs with odd angled walls and finding that the dimension lines jump off the angled walls repeatedly and the dimensions will not snap to windows and doors on the angled walls. Has anyone else had these problems and found a way around them? I read through several past threads on angled walls and did not find solutions for these issues. Thanks, Susan

    How to draw a railing on top of a portico

    Thank you for the link to the article! I will definitely use that.

    How to draw a railing on top of a portico

    Yes, I made the railing a "panel" and then went through the file for "Fences and Railing" and chose the diamond pattern. I noticed there is another file called "glass panels" that I was going to try next.

    How to draw a railing on top of a portico

    Yes, just a railing on top of a flat roof over an entry. I've figured out how to draw that - thanks to Chop Saw and another video. I'm trying to give a client different options on the railing design. Any tips on how to customize balusters into an "X" design, for example?
  15. Is there a way to draw the railing at the top of the portico other than placing it manually? I'm sure there is a way to do this, but I can't seem to locate a video or a thread in Chief Talk. Thanks, Susan
