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?

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.

      I'm sorry, but I hate the changes that were made to the library browser in X15. The folder system - it's all so difficult for me to navigate and find items. When I want change the material for an object in my plan, I'll do a search like I used to, and will not pull up the material I'm looking for. Like "Color - White". I still have to hunt and scroll down a list of none relevant materials til - "there it is"!! Hide and seek game, you know!!
      And in the library folder panel, how in tarnation am I supposed to rearange existing library objects and/or move them to a different folder??? It won't let me drag and drop!
      Please tell me there's and easy tip that I'm overlooking and I'll eat my humble pie. Thanks.

      Hi, everybody
      This question is not exactly related to technical issues about Chef Architect but I don’t know what to do. Let’s see… how can I explain this?
      I’m really bad designing my own furniture so I usually download stuff from pages like 3D Warehouse. I save everything in the User Catalog. I try to keep everything in order and in different folders but, as you can guess, working with so many things is a mess.
      I try to clean these folders regularly removing furniture I don’t use anymore but my hard disk is a disaster. I’ve been updating the software and now I don’t know where all the libraries are (including the stuff I downloaded). I’m scared of deleting the wrong "Chief Architect Premier X Data" folder.
      Then, another strange thing that happens while working with downloaded symbols is that, after adding them to my catalog, their textures are lost. Doesn’t Chief Architect keep them?
      I don’t know if I’m missing anything… How can I “clean” the software? Many thanks!

      When I change the dimension of a wall sconce, the 2D symbol resizes too. I've never had this happen before when resizing electrical symbols. How do I prevent this from  happening ? I've attached 2 pictures for reference.
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi, everybody
      I would like to know how you edit symbols or CAD blocks.
      I don’t have much experience creating my own objects so I usually download them from pages like 3D Warehouse.
      Most of the times I need to make changes or remove elements included in these objects so I just load the symbol, go to Edit CAD block and try to modify what I need in the CAD Block window.
      When the object is ready, I just add it to the library, but when I try to reload again the symbol previously created I can’t see it in the 3D view.
      I’m sure I’m missing some steps or, probably, I can’t understand how symbols work.
      Many thanks for the help!
