  1. Thanks Everyone, All really good ideas! I love the "outa the box thinking" -Charles
  2. Thanks Susan, that would be a solution but now it falls into my current workaround which it to use an invisible wall, attach the outlet and move it into place. Regarding why I have a 3D solid rather than a chief wall.... this is an exterior poured concrete patio wall with thicknesses that vary in some areas ("think" funnel shaped transitions) and heights that do the same thing. This cannot be done with chiefs walls, in my experience. re the beach..... I know what you mean, but we also look at you in Colorado and think, wow it would be nice to be skiing .
  3. Thanks Michael, I will look into your solution and see if this is something that I can do.
  4. @SusanCThats thinking outside the box! Thanks for the suggestion. Ultimately, the best solution, would be to able to rename a solid as a wall which to the best of my knowledge we can't do.....yet Can we?
  5. Good idea, tried it... but, it shows up in the schedule as "floor mounted"
  6. I have created a custom wall out of a 3d solid and want to place "wall mounted" outlets on it. For it to show up in the electrical schedule as wall mounted it needs to be placed in a "wall", not a 3d solid. Ultimately the question is.....How do you put a wall mounted outlet on a 3d solid (without using invisible fake walls) ? Anyone have a work around for this? Thanks, Charles
  7. @Joe_Carrick Thanks Joe.... that was my latest conclusion also, but there are some pretty creative users out there, I had to ask .
  8. Has anyone figured out how to place a specific library object using Stream Deck? Thanks, Charles
  9. OMG.... I have not heard that name in years! It was the first CAD program I used prior to AchiCAD. Thanks for the memory
  10. Joe..... I have to thank you once again ( I originally thought "stream deck" had to do with some programming code ) I was skeptical at first and tried the "free version" using an iPhone. It took very little time to make me a believer, so I bought the XL and love it! -Charles
  11. Your statement just sold me on getting one of these.... Now I have to decide if the brand new "Stream Deck +" will be more functional with Chief than the XL.
  12. Sorry for my ignorance, but what is a "stream deck"? -Charles
  13. @solver Thanks Eric for the link (Your channel?... I subscribed anyway ) . This is how I currently make my icons, but they don't pop as much as the ones in chief.
