    Unable to open Samples Gallery file "Bachelor View"

    Thanks. I had no idea they released it. I guess it isn't offered to student accounts since my locker doesn't have it. Thanks again

    Unable to open Samples Gallery file "Bachelor View"

    When did X12 come out? I only see X11 as purchase and upgrade options.
  3. Hello, I have the student version of X11, with the most recent update, on my Macbook Pro (macOS Mojave 10.14.6). When I download and attempt to open the Samples Gallery file "Bachelor View", I get the following error message "You are running an older version of Chief Architect Premier Software that does not support the newer features of the .layout file you are attempting to open. There is a newer version of Chief Architect Premier available. Would you like to upgrade now?" The file will not open, with the error message appearing when I attempt to open the file. I deleted and redownloaded the file with the same error appearing. Other sample files open without issue. Any advice? Thank you!

    Importing an OBJ file with MTL file as well

    Thank you. Where do I find the textures folder? Thanks again.
  5. I recently purchased a custom model from a model designer. They sent me the .OBJ file along with an .MTL file. I was told the .MTL file is the materials for the .OBJ file. I was told the materials for the .OBJ will load in the libarary and I can then apply them to the model in any program I use, such as Chief Architect. So far, I can open and view the actual. OBJ model, but it has no materials. Can anyone point me in the direction on how to fix this or if it can even work in Chief Architect? Thank you!

    Truck Stop Floor Plans

    Thanks... If you notice, most of the Google results show either dimensionless plans or, for some odd reason, hotel floor plans.

    Truck Stop Floor Plans

    Hello, Does anyone know where I can find sample site plans or floor plans of truck stops? I'm working on a personal project and trying to get a better idea of overall dimensions, layout, etc. Any idea of where I can also find floor plans of commercial buildings in general? Thank you for your help! Shane

  10. Hello, Is there a way to show an interior lattice wall and an outside canvas, in Chief? I am attempting to create a yurt for a project. Attached are picturse of what I am describing. Thank you! Shane
  11. Hello, Does anyone know how to get the beta version of X9 from the student version? I have the student version of x8 with SSA past February 15th but the link to download the beta is not displayed. Thank you!

    Slowness on my Computer

    Thank you everyone for the advice! I recognize that there is better software than chief for commercial projects. I love Chief due to its easy learning curve. I have tried Revit and hated it due to the complexities of creating things. I am not an architect by training and have used the software for a project I hope to take to an architect in the future. Thank you again!

    Thank you for the advice. Here is the video card info, I think. I also use the program Lumion which is much faster but their software engineers have also recommended upgrading to the Titan X graphics card.
