I am drawing a cross section using 2D CAD lines (to get more detail than the automatic cross section Chief creates).
I am having issues finding a Batt Insulation Pattern to use.
I am using Chief X9
- Chief Architect has a Block under "CAD Blocks / Detail Components / Insulation / Batt / 5.5" R-21", but unfortunately it is only 12" x 5 1/2" of size, so if I want a smaller or bigger section, it stretches the block and the proportions change.
- I found a free .PAT file online (attached), but It needs to be in a specific location to work, the minute I move the polyline with that pattern in it, the pattern moves with it.
I have tried to illustrate this in the attached screen shot.
Please let me now if anyone has any recommendations / solutions to this issue.
Here I am trying to cut section of a deck. (Image attached). Unfortunately garage wall is in line with the deck edge. (plan view image attached) which I don't want to see in my section view. Is there a way I can hide or clip what I want to see? Garage wall is hiding the stair behind.
Does anyone know, if you can take the automatic cross-section. From DBL click on your room, on the right side of your screen and save it to your plan?
I have attached an image below. I have tried snipping or print screen, but I'm looking for a chief alternative. I want to be able to take this as a cad detail section and have it to scale in my plan.
Hi. Whenever I create a "cad detail from view" from a cross-section, I end up with double lines in the cad detail from view drawing. When I go to erase a line in the drawing, there is another line underneath so I have to erase the same line twice to eliminate it. Any suggestions as to why this is happening and how to correct it? Any input is most appreciated. I am using the current build of X9 and running it on my iMac. Thank you kindly.
I am a beginner using Chief X8 and its got me stumped. The plan I am working on is a rambler with a basement and 18" floor trusses. When I add a floor truss to the plan and open a cross section the truss displays at the wrong height. The top of the truss is flush with the top of the subfloor plywood and there is a gap between the bottom of the truss and the drywall. If I change the truss to an I joist it displays at the correct height. What am I missing?
