Recommended Posts

I am a project manager and construction manager for Design and build company along with I have my own company. Of late I find my self doing a lot of work onsite or from the desk in my truck.

I am currently using a Toshiba Satellite  Intel (r) Core i7-5500u CPU@ 2.4 GHZ and 8 GB of installed ram, OS window 10 running CA 8 64 byte. 

 

I have been experiencing long lags while editing the layout pages or moving items any suggestions of what would be a better rig for mobile operations ?

There are a ton of very recent posts on laptops that stir a host of responses, try searching..I vote ROG lappys.

Also if you have PDF's within your plan they tend to hog resources, you may want to check through your plan to find the slowdown cuplrit..it's likely not your hardware but a problem with an element of the layout file

      Does anyone know ho fix issues I have on this commercial remodeling addition?
      1) Windows and bar cabinets are not against the wall!
      2) wall is not showing on full camera looking back toward where it attaches to the existing building. Wall existing is brick on inside, unless I decide to cover it with gypsum bd!
      3) I have a 10 ft. plate with 9 ft dropped ceiling 2 ft x 4 ft acoustic tile in new addition.

      I want to show a window schedule for each elevation only showing the windows on that elevation, what is the best way to do this?
      This way i can show the sq footage of windows on that wall exposure and have it totaled in the schedule for just that wall.
