Now that I have your attention :) I need to create the iconic design used on the set of Star Wars for a customer. I would like to use this for some cabinet fronts as well as a wall panel in the entrance hall. How do I even begin t create something like this? Thanks for any input.

White lines over a black fill. Couple minutes. Sorry, won't work as a symbol but that's what you need.

To create a symbol start with a p-line solid and create long holes with the corners fileted (filet all tool works fine) then just size and multi copy into position. Copy and paste your first group to create 4 of the same groups. Save as a symbol and apply where needed.

I see you have HD Pro and X7 interiors. Not sure it can be done with those programs.

Yes Warren it looks just like it, sorry you couldn't open my file, if I had done it version 17 can you open it in Ver 17 Interiors?  Hopefully you can update to version 18 soon and enjoy it's capabilities.

Warren when converting poly solid to symbol be sure to define it as "cabinet door".

      10 years ago I used Solid Builder 19.2 to create wall panel shop drawings for an apartment complex in Junction City, Kansas.
      It was great software for creating individual walls saved to PDF by page so that they could be manufactured off-site, stacked in reverse assembly order, and then delivered for rapid build out.
      I haven't had the need to do anything like that since, but I was wondering if walls could be broken into individual panels and printed on single pages relatively easily in Chief Architect?
       
      See attached file for the output document that Solid Builder creates.
