Patterns on 3D molding polylines only showing up in standard view

Recommended Posts

Any pattern I use only shows up in standard view. I have a column with a tapered stone base. I used a 3D molding polyline to create the stone base. Am I doing something wrong or is that just how the program works?5a2840be9e090_VectorView.thumb.jpg.0e6c5040941418a94551d9dacc57cae7.jpg

 Textures show in Standard mode.  Patterns (if defined for the material) will show in Vector mode(s).

Interesting,  It works in a 3D Camera View but not in an Elevation View.

You should report it to CA as a Bug.

You need to close the molding profile.

 

Yours is open on the right, and should look similar to this.

Happy to help. I believe molding profiles, except for ones used for exposed rafter tails, need to be closed.

We ALL are still learning the program. That's what makes the forum so useful -- someone usually has an answer.

Very true. Thanks for the advice and tips! I think that's the one thing that I didn't think of.

      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.
       
      thanks,
      Angela

      A really quick video on how you can use a single molding polyline and create a custom column with a stone base in just minutes. Create a symbol, add some stretch planes and save it to you library to use over and over.

      I've used CA for years and AutoCAD since 1985. (Yeah I'm old).
      In Florida we do a lot of Block house plans. (CMU) 8x16x8 concrete blocks.
      Other than manually placing block patterns. Does anyone have an easy way to do wall fill patterns to show the ACTUAL CMU BLOCK Pattern in plan view. 
      It would be great if it actually placed filled cells required for all window/door openings and corners. Any suggestions? 
       
      Thanks

      Hi folks,
      I was using chief architect x9 for the last several months. Meanwhile, I had to change the hard drive of my Pc.
      On the new drive after installation, I am stuck with a strange problem. I do not see anything in standard camera view except the backdrop even a 4 walled room looks invisible. Whereas everything looks fine in the orthographic overview and orthographic floor overview.
      If I select the room randomly clicking on the backdrop in standard camera view, room selection lines do appear. I tried to change the default settings of the camera but no result, I tried to tweak the preferences and here, if I uncheck the USE ENHANCED LIGHTING option in RENDER subfolder, a dark room shows up in standard camera view  like the one I attached with this thread as a JEPG image. Please guide me step by step where is the problem keeping in mind that I am a novice.
      Thanks in advance.

      Is there a way to create a custom tile layout? I want to take a standard subway pattern and stagger it 1/3 rather than 1/2 with a specific tile size, 3.75 x 12.25. Thanks in advance.
