  1. Anyone know why the front wall is building down regardless of what height the floor is specified? Even selecting the window and manually dragging the bottom does not change anything but the sides. Second question, is there a way to add windows to the front of the box window like what is pictured? Thanks
  2. It's sad and frustrating that this is a valid concern... I see it all over the place, here and Facebook to name 2. Some groups are worse than others. You don't know what you don't know and people who share to help other out will eventually stop altogether when they are constantly trolled. Thanks for sharing BTW, I learned something
  3. do you have some sort of a content list to give an idea what all is in there? The ones on the card looks high quality for sure?
  4. Using the polyline method... obviously made separate for color reasons and to be able to overhang the cabinet side at will. Using a custom molding profile for side fill and for countertop Attaching the calibz file with molding profiles... Molding line for both profiles is at the wall and these work for standard depth cabinets. Set fill molding to the finished height of your base cabinet Set countertop molding to top of base cabinet height +.625" Cabinet Fill molding.calibz Slopped Countertop (15 degree).calibz
  5. if using x12 (maybe works as well in earlier but can't confirm) draw a polyline in 2d over the cabinets you want to affect in a straight line. convert to polyline solid and set the base height at the top of your cabinet box and the poly height to where the highest point should be. camera view. select side plane of polyline and adjust top "front" corner handle to base to establish slope.
  6. Maybe someone with more experience than I have will know how to do this, but I would use polyline solids. the only way it would sorta bite you is an outside corner situation... Draw your base cabinet and from a side elevation shape the profile of your countertop and extrude it. Second thought that came to me while typing is to create a custom molding profile then lay out a molding polyline.
  7. If this was the biggest anomaly you got from chief in terrain then that is amazing... its usually a crap shoot as Chief is pretty difficult to get terrains down to a t. I've had some work without a hitch then others look like a porcupine. I don't fully understand all of the adjustments but I've had fairly good luck with low terrain surface smoothing and higher terrain surface triangle counts. I have yet to get retaining walls and such to work as desired
  8. if you exported it as a 2:1 then imported it into chief that way, make sure when you adjust your size under texture that you have retain aspect ratio checked. otherwise count the number of tiles shown in your texture sourse image and do the math to what it should be and adjust it manually. should work
  9. Here is a link to a video that really helped my roof game. this in conjunction with the Join roof planes tool are a great help. Also spend some time learning about setting walls to full gable and how you can tell chief before you auto build a roof specific roof plane pitches.
  10. dimension your material region to not cut your material and give it the depth you need. set it up the same way you would use polyline solids then multiple copy it. no trimming necessary
  11. add some floor jets to get the undercarriage and a blower at the exit.
  12. Better but major gable is still split and that is wrong... use natural breaks to change materials when possible or add a break (ie band board above minor gable garage door). Also note. Band board should be beefier to balance the appearance of the heavy timber and also flow better with the lok and natural breaks of the house. Make it closer to the height of the bird box...
  13. Good suggestions overall, I would comment that the trusses are a nice touch but where you ended the shake siding is still odd. I would design this exterior shake above fascia and move the band board at fascia height on the minor gable. If the shake is overwhelming try a james hardie straight edge for a little less movement or do a shake on the minor gable and a board and batton style on the major gable.
