    Steel Staircases

    Thanks all for your input. It seems comments are mixed regarding Chief's ability to produce this project as I suspected they might be.

    Steel Staircases

    Does anyone have experience creating construction drawings for a custom steel staircase using CA? (see attached image) Something similar to this is desired. I have been ask to do so but feel CA is too limited in it's ability. I assume one could spend hours creating custom P-solids and eventually a workable plan but don't know if it's worth the effort. It sounds like maybe the version 13 update may allow more control over this function but right now I don't think it's reasonably attainable. Thoughts? Ideas? Experience?

    Has Anyone Switched from VisionRez

    Has anyone tried to use CA for creating metal stairways plans for a fabricator? I have a request to do so and am apprehensive about being able to create drawings with enough detail. -DG

    Staggered Lap Siding/Pattern to Texture?

    Perfect. A tutorial will be helpful!

    Staggered Lap Siding/Pattern to Texture?

    Thanks Mick. No. I'm not familiar with Paint. I don't think I ever used it. I'll try to experiment with the suggestions you forwarded. -DG

    Staggered Lap Siding/Pattern to Texture?

    Thanks all. What basic image editor program would you recommend? I think the only one I have is Paint but it's probably 10 years old.
  7. I reviewed this older posting: http://www.chieftalk.com/showthread.php?65927-varying-lap-siding-reveal and was able to successfully download the pattern created. What I don't understand is how one transfers that pattern to the texture file for 3D viewing? I'm hoping it's easier to do this now as the posting dates back to 2014? Here's the elevation view with the intended siding pattern: Now to just get the material to follow.

    Loss of Patterns in X12?

    Just to reiterate: The pattern libraries are the only libraries that seem to be missing files. ALL the other libraries have migrated correctly and are accessible as normal. It's only when I choose to select a pattern through it's DBX for a particular item (such as flooring or roofing) do I experience the problem. I have 're-migrated' the files several times through the new X12 feature to no avail. I also have opened plans with X11 and a particular pattern I'm searching for and tried the 'add to library' option. Still, not accessible even after resetting.

    I should add that all libraries are accessible as normal in every other situation.

    Loss of Patterns in X12?

    It was a pattern from the Chief library and not one of my own. It does not appear my user library nor anything other than the Chief core library is accessible when choosing a patter in the DBX. This capture shows what I see when I try to choose a pattern. Only the core library has an arrow next to it.

    Loss of Patterns in X12?

    This is a roof pattern that I've used for years and cannot find in the X12.... There are also several others but don't have time to forward right now.

    Loss of Patterns in X12?

    This is what I'm seeing.

    Loss of Patterns in X12?

    In the library when selecting a pattern. The core library is the only one made available when choosing. The bonus, manufacturer and user libraries are not accessible. And when I open the core library there are fewer patterns available than before.

    Loss of Patterns in X12?

    Did I import/migrate something incorrectly or did numerous patterns (shingles, wood, stone, tile, etc.) disappear in X12? It seems like I only have about a quarter of what I used to have in X11. I realize there is the new feature that allows for syncing patterns and textures but I miss some of my standard favorites and don't know why they didn't 'carry over'. Are we supposed to search for and import these individually? I don't see anything in the archives addressing this.
