Exporting & Importing Autocad Files and Drawing Templates in Acad into Chief Layout Sheets

Recommended Posts

Users of Chief;

 

I am trying to figure out a way to import my AutoCAD files into Chief importing only the Title Block information

so that I can export it into the layout sheets and set this up for the standard layouts that I will be using for this job from the architect

primarily? I need a step by step procedure here please; you can email me or call me, or text me with your replies.

I will eagerly await your replies.

Thx,

 

DCB

1. Start a new Plan and save it somewhere.

2. File>Import>Import Drawing (DWG, DXF...)

3. Step through the Import Drawing Assistant; when you get to the Select Layers tab uncheck everything except the title block layer.

4. Once the data is imported,  Copy it to your clipboard.

5. Open a new Layout and save it in the same directory as the Plan file.

6. Paste the contents of the clipboard into Page 0 of the Layout.

7. Move/scale/tweak the data to finish setting up the title block on Page 0.

8. Save your work.

      I am an experienced Chief Architect Designer of (7) years now. I have completed several large scale, high end custom residential home projects, here in SW Florida. I have samples of my work, and photorealistic renders, full walkthroughs animations all done in Lumion software. Pls, reach out to me, by phone, or the email listed below. I’de love to hear from you now. My rates are based upon the project, but, an idea of what I charge, is normally $50 per hour for my drafting and design time, this is somewhat negotiable, and can be addressed when we discuss your project together. Pls reach out to me to discuss your next project. Thx!

      Hello, my name is Doug, as I am a Chief Arch’l Cad Designer, looking to help other contractors, builders and Chief users with their residential projects, 3D models, plans, walkthroughs, photo realistic renderings in Chief Architect & Lumion softwares.
      I have a well established portfolio of the houses that I’ve done, renders in lumion 
      and other references as well.
      I would love to discuss your next design project with you, and even do a free online meeting, for us to get better aquanted with your Project. My professional rates are reasonable, depending on the size of the project, and the scope of the work, but I normally take payment on PayPal, and block out prepayment, for lesser amounts of time, or discuss, working on larger projects on contract basis. Pls, reach out to me, so, that we can discuss things further?

      I have created a 5600SF heated, 8000SF under roof, custom house design and I am looking for a Professional Drafter who can use it to get me to the next step with proper drawings for an Engineer to review and to seek permitting, etc. I have already copyrighted my unique floor plan and am hoping to find someone who does not have an issue with me maintaining intellectual rights to my design. I am in central Florida (Ocala, FL/ Marion County). Thanks in advance for any advice!
