AutoCad Drawings of Home to be converted into Home Designer Pro 2016

Recommended Posts

Hello, We have purchased a home and we have the autocad drawings of the entire house.  Is there someone that is proficient with HDP 2016 and would be able to create our house from the autocad drawings.  I would like to make an exact copy of current house in HDP 2016 so I could then start looking at making an addtion onto the back of the house.  Thank you, Bob

Bob:

 

for clarity Chief Premier user can also convert the plans and set the edit switch so that you can continue

to work with the plan after that

 

NOTE:  if Premier features are used that don't exist in HDP then those sections will be read only

 

there are some Chiefers who have HDP also and they can do the entire plan in HDP

 

good luck

 

Lew

Having the drawings gives you everything you need to do this yourself, and will be a good learning experience preparing to add your addition.

Thank you Lew and Eric for the info.

 

Lew, I would like it done in HDP so i could continue on with it.

 

Eric, I know it would be perfect for me to learn more about it.  I started playing with building the foundation wall and found it takes more time to copy something then to make from scratch. Maybe there are some good shortcuts, i just don't know.  I was able to import the *.dxf so i had overlay.  just taking me longer then i wanted.  Figured I would see if someone good at HDP could create for me.

The Home Designer products have their own forum -- HomeTalk. This forum is for the Chief Architect branded products.

 

You might post there. 

 

It would be good to understand what the house looks like too, so you might post a picture or 3, and describe more what you are expecting. That is, do you need an accurate structure (foundation, floors, walls and roof), drawn in plan, or do you expect an accurate 3D model, interior and exterior?

      I am desperate to get help on putting a floorplan with multi level open space into ca.  For the life of me I can't figure it out (stairs and adjusting ceiling heights planes etc...)and I am willing (happy to do so) pay someone to provide this for me!!!
      I can adjust the materials of course and add in furniture, just I don't have the time to try to sort this out.  If anyone is willing or a wiz and can help me with this please let me know asap!!!
      I have attached the basic plan all that I need in the plan is entry, living room, dining room, kitchen and stairs.  I would guess also the upstairs open area as well since we see it from all areas.  I have promised my clients that I would provide the 3d visuals as well as the wonderful walk-through's that I have done on all my other more standard houses...  So if someone out there is proficient on this , has a wee bit of time and wants to make some money please let me know....  I am also in need of a few other houses to get their plans in to ca as well.  My cad tech that I use locally doesn't work in ca only revit...  I need to be able to manipulate the dwgs with details.  I have attached all that I have.  If anyone can look at this and contact me directly please asap. 1-604-916-4634  Kori
