Rugs in library

Recommended Posts

I was looking for an area rug to put in a plan.  I called up "rug" in the library and tried to install a border rug.  None of them or the other patterned rugs would attach except for the items such as corded round rug or rectangular rug, etc.  Am I doing something wrong or is there something wrong with the symbols?  Are these just materials we have to apply to another rug symbol?

Some rugs in the Library browser are materials to be attached to objects like slabs or soffits and some are symbols with materials already assigned.

Does that mean, if I want an oriental rug in the dining room, I have to place a slab under the table and then put the oriental rug on it as a material?

...or you could just import a rug from the library and then reassign a texture (and map) to the rug symbol.

I did go to the library to bring a rug in. There was a good selection, I thought, but they are not symbols even though they look like one.

If you want an oriental red rug (or many of the others) I presume you bring in a rectangular rug and then go back and add the oriental red rug as the material. Seems to work but more steps than I was expecting. Much better though than the previous slab suggestion.

BTW. Thanks for all the suggestions. It's good to know people are willing to help on a Friday afternoon!

      Many of these I have personally made or modified. Some of the content may have been created by others for which I will give credit. Many of the materials have free licensing, so no credit is needed. 
      Some of this content may slow down your program as I have a high powered machine and often times use complex and high resolution textures. I will try and give as much detail as possible. Use at your own peril!
       
      No but seriously dig through and enjoy, I've spent a good number of hours ensuring the quality of these symbols and will update them periodically- so CHECK BACK IN! and PLEASE GIVE A LIKE FOR THE POST OF ANY SYMBOL YOU LIKE, IT ENCOURAGES ME TO GO BACK AND REFINE/REDUCE/OPTIMIZE THAT SYMBOL. GIVE A DOWNVOTE AND IT'LL PROBABLY ENCOURAGE ME TO DO THE SAME THING...YOU'LL JUST BE A JERK FOR IT

      How do you get the 2D symbols in the electrical legend to show up at the same size that they are in the plan (or a size that is desired)?  Is there a way to control the size of the 2D symbols in electrical legends?  The 2D symbols come in so large that they blow the legends right off the page.  If I scale the legend down, the text becomes illegible.

      I have imported 50 or so items into the user library as furniture.
      Now I want to change all the items to another layer.
      How can I change all items to a new layer?
      The layer is now created.

      Hi,
      New to Chief Architect and a Mac Use with Version 2021.  I can't seem to find the Centerline Symbol in this program, yet when I google it, some videos show the symbol in Dimensions.  However, nothing is there for this symbol in this version.   Please advise.
      Thanks!
