  1. Yup. I just realized my old computer at home that I work on late at night isn't compatible with the new version. It's sporting an old GTX 780. I also maxed out my 250 gig ssd boot drive with the install. It's a sad day when you realize, you either need to buy a new preboxed computer from Dell Alienware just to get a decent video card, or pay an astronomically high price for a video card component if you want to build your own computer, which I've done for the 4 office computers. Pic attached is from my late January build. Looks like I'm headed to Microcenter, Newegg, and Amaz
  2. It seems most use Wrightsoft. https://www.wrightsoft.com/
  3. Holy crap! And I thought the system I built in my signature was overkill!!!!!!
  4. It does what it wants, not what you try to make it do.
  5. Thank you. I should have looked through the rest of the attributes available.
  6. A little late to the party on this one, but.... I am looking to create a few basic palettes for a few standard kitchen designs that have been repetitively appearing on jobs lately. It's nice to click once and show the client the different options. But as I'm playing with it I noticed none of the cabinet hardware is changing. It always remains what was originally on the cabinet. The hardware location does move around according to the placement settings, but door and draw hardware remains unchanged. I checked the training video and the options for set properties are supposed to
  7. Nice setup. I don't do much sketching and modeling anymore. My office has become more utilitarian, and the need for easy redlining of drawings is a bigger need. I'm traveling more between NY and Florida, and need a good option for redlining pdf checkprints produced by my staff. I want to be able to do redlining anywhere......at the airport, on a plane, at a coffee table, in bed......anywhere I can squeeze in some productivity time. It looks like it'll be either an Ipad Pro, or my existing Samsung Chromebook plus with Kami pdf and the included stylus. Dam Ipads are freaking expensiv
  8. Thanks for the feedback Rich. I was afraid of this obvious answer. I'll have to look into it more. I like the Lidar paired with a 3d scanner app. I could definitely use it in my toolbox.
  9. I used a digitizer tablet 25 years ago for Autocad 14. My nephew works for Falcon's Creative Group in Orlando doing theme park design and they seem to be using a mix of Wacom tablets AND Wacom Cintiq onscreen drawing computer/monitors. Has anyone been able to implement a tablet, Wacom or any other brand, with a stylus pen rather than a puck/mouse? The reason I'm thinking of this is, I'd like to also use the stylus for redlining pdf drawings and a stylus is more intuitive than a mouse. I've also looked at an IPAD using Morpholio Trace or Procreate, but I'm not an Apple fan and I'm n
  10. I ran into something similar a few months ago. A client wanted a mechanical room in the attic above his garage. The problem, this attic was adjacent to the master bedroom and the mechanical room would only be accessible from the bedroom. I looked through all the codes and remember finding something that stated it couln't be done, but I'll be damed if I can find it now. I did find an article about why a water cannot be in a closet adjacent to a bedroom..... Ideally, water heaters should be located near gas or electric service and where water supply and distribution lines can be
  11. Yup. Every 32" maxes out at 1080p. Enlarging your screen onto one of those makes the text very pixelated. I found out the hard way.....buy.....test..... return..... waste some more valuable unpaid time
  12. Just my 2 cents..... I bought two of these Hisense R7 43" last year and love them. Unfortunately they aren't available anymore: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/hisense-43-class-r7-series-led-4k-uhd-smart-roku-tv/6221027.p?skuId=6221027 Today I bought 3 Bestbuy branded Insignia FireTV 43" tvs. Two for my assistants upgraded workstation and one for me at home, but I don't care for the screen colors, and I think if you sit too close the corners of the screen aren't as bright as my Hisense tvs. Good enough for my assistant, but I'm returning mine. https://www.bestbuy
  13. For anyone tight on desktop space, here's a smaller 32" TV that will help. It's the first time I've seen a TV under 40" that is still 4K https://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-32-class-q50r-series-led-4k-uhd-smart-tizen-tv/6364277.p?skuId=6364277 But I'm picking up this 43" to squeeze onto my home desk tonight. I just can't deal with this crap any longer. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/hisense-43-class-h65-series-led-4k-uhd-smart-android-tv/6404056.p?skuId=6404056
  14. This solution doesn't work for individual details. I have to open 25 details and move each detail left to right just to get the text to reset........every godam time I take a drawing file from the office 43" monitor to my home 27". Such a stupid work around. Can't they fix this? I doubt Revit or Archicad has this problem.
  15. I'd say get the Ryzen 3900x with the free included Wraith Prism cooler as an absolute miniumum. They are getting cheaper as the newer Ryzen's have bee released. And I agree, an RTX 2070 Super is a bare minimum. But try the 2080 super. I'm giving my assistant the computer in my signature, when I'm able to get all my parts. But here's my next build after the RTX and Ryzen becomes easier to acquire, hopefully by February. High end RTX and RYzen 9 parts are only going to OEM in large quantities. I see them pop up on Amazon for 10 seconds, but they sell out by the time I click Shopping
