  1. I encountered this same effect recently and resolved it by turning the sunlight off. May not be applicable to your needs, but I only needed the clarity for interior visual.
  2. I produce condocs in Autocad, but do preliminal plans in Chief. Have been since '94. The process for me is to export to dwg. The layers have to be adjusted (color, etc.) easy enough. The symbols etc. import as blocks that need to be exploded and cleaned up if used if needed. A bit tedious if needed. The engineers or Architects that I use would never do that. If you don't have a dwg program, I don't think there is a way to send a cleaned up Chief file.
  3. Another flared roof CA video: https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/1527/creating-a-hip-roof-with-curved-eaves.html

  6. Chief downspouts seem finicky to me. I use molding polylne in section view and place/align in 3d. Just a suggestion.
  7. Just an attempt. I didn't try to start with a polyline. I did a curved railing (I didn't see a curved wall option) which gave me a radius that I could specify. Changed the wall type to interior 4 and unchecked railing. May not be the best way.
  8. Tried same as Mick. Works fine.
  9. I don't usually address the cabinetry views, but was curious about this. Opened a plan and placed a wall cabinet and the default was checked as frameless. I didn't change that and I had a flat bottom. Went back and checked framed in the dbx and got the recess.
  10. Provide the PDF set and the Engineer will red-line the plans with comments. Those corrections need to be made to the final plan set and resubmitted to the Engineer for approval and seal.
  11. just tried without the Quotes and it worked.
  12. http://www.usgdesignstudio.com/wall-selector-overview.asp I also use GA files. Plan reviewers will accept UL or GA files here.
