  1. I set up most all drawings on 24"x36" and send those out to be printed but my office oversized printer/ photo printer will print up to 13"x19" so when I print on 12"x18" sheets for check sets they are printed at 1/8" scale. Its much better than having prints not to scale. Its just 12x18 is not a paper you find in stores much so I order online. Heres a a link . https://www.officesupply.com/office-supplies/paper-pads/printer-paper/wide-format-paper/hammermill-copy-paper-brightness-photo-white-sheets-ream/p60910.html?q=12 x 18 copy paper

  4. So I tried using or having a client download and use the 3d viewer for the first time. I uploaded his project model and in general it uploaded ok.. took a while. It did have 5-7 issues of materials / textures not uploading or compatible etc as it loaded.. mostly referred to items ( i assume models ) from earlier versions like 8 or 9. Sent him the link and he had downloaded the viewer on his android phone. The first time he tried it the model worked and he said it was a pretty good look and didnt notice textures missing as far as he could tell. He said it took up 5-6 gb of ram o

  7. Hi, I am currently doing construction documents in autocadd with some projects done in chief for visual/ design purposes for about half my clients. I am not personally comfortable with doing the CD's in Chief but would like to start trying to migrate some plans/ CD's to chief. I am looking to see who might be out there to take plans/ model that I have done in chief and complete construction documents as I currently dont have time to get up to speed on this phase on chief. I would provide the design / model and engineering / layouts/ sizing as well as I would add in my general no

  10. ME TOO. GLAD MY IGNORANCE HELPED A FEW PEOPLE GAIN MORE KNOWLEDGE
  11. GREAT TIP I WILL TRY THAT. I HAVENT USED THAT TOOL BEFORE.. I FEEL DUMB THAT I NEVER CAME ACROSSED THAT SIMPLE TOOL AND YES IT WORKED GREAT
  12. Thanks Rob, I will look into that.
  13. Solver. Thanks I first tried using convert to plain polyline as thats all I could find to use and it simply disappeared. I then found the solid tools icon that I have never used before. So it works but as I am sure you are aware it then makes it more of a pain to copy or move around later if needed. It does the trick if one doesnt want to mess around with them much after exploding.. Would be nice if we could specify it to go all through the solid object. Thanks again.
  14. When putting wood shelves / polyline solid in a design I can use wood material and rotate the grain direction to run the length of a shelf as needed by rotating the texture in materials... but the grain on the edge of the shelf runs vertical. Is there a way to make the grain go through the entire object so the grain is realistic on the edge ?
