  1. My 2019 Mac Book Pro has dual video cards. Onboard Intel Graphics and AMD Radeon Pro The default is for the computer to use the Intel when running on battery, but use the AMD when plugged in. In System Preferences > Battery, there is an option to automatically switch video cards when using battery. This can be turned off.
  2. Go with Lift Master, top of the line in residential
  3. Yes for all projects. I haven't had a problem.
  4. CA uses Vimeo. In the Vimeo settings, CA has unchecked permission to download. They would simply have to check that box to permit it.
  5. Should be fairly easy 30" Base cabinet with a 48" Base next to it. 30" Base back to Back with the other 30" Select the Cabinets and make one double door, no drawer, no toe kick. Add molding to the bottom of the base cabinets All cabinets should have no countertop Add custom countertop Add cabinet legs Add cabinet molding under the open areas Add the stools
  6. You guy are correct about Apple. They are the ones I should be upset with. I'm looking at a PC, now. Here are the spec. What I I missing? Will this support VR? This is Dell Alienware Processor 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 11900KF (8-Core, 16MB Cache, 3.5GHz to 5.3GHz w/Thermal Velocity Boost Operating System = Windows 10 Pro English Video Card = NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 10GB GDDR6X Memory = 64GB Dual Channel DDR4 XMP at 3200MHz; up to 128GB (additional memory
  7. I downloaded it. I'm extremely disappointed that X13 Real Time Ray Tracing is not supported on the Mac. I have a $4,400 Mac Pro and a $3,900 MacBook Pro. It's hard to justify buying a $4,000 PC just to Ray Trace.
  8. I registered for both, did you?
  9. Webinars on X13 - June 3 and June 10, https://www.chiefarchitect.com/events/#whats-new
  10. I'm an electrical contractor. I use CA for electrical design, meet with the owners and wire the houses according to the drawings. Jorgearaya gave you accurate advice. The "6 ft Rule" is used as a bare minimum for outlet placement. If I were designing a spec home or apartment, I'd use that rule. For custom homes, I place all the furniture and design the electrical and lighting based on furniture and cabinet layouts.
  11. We made Blueprints in college back in 1973. The method was obsolete even then. Invented in 1842, blueprints were truly Blue The drawing to be copied, drawn on translucent paper, is placed against paper sensitized with a mixture of ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide. The sensitized paper is then exposed to light. Where the areas of the sensitized paper are not obscured by the drawing, the light makes the two chemicals react to form blue. The exposed paper is then washed in water. This produces a negative image, with the drawing appearing in white against a dark blue bac
  12. I prefer having two different pitches like 12/12 for the roof and 8/12 for the ceiling plane or 8/12 & 6/12. That allows for plenty of insulation and venting.
  13. They told me having all your files on Apple iCloud was also a known cause.
  14. I finally called CA tech support about my Toolbars disappearing on my Mac. It got to a point where about 25% of the time, when I used a 3D camera, the toolbars were gone. I had to close the program, open it and restore the toolbars. Answer = move the CA Data folder to the same drive as the software. I had the Data folder on a different drive.
