I'm new to the forums and i've tried to find my way in the already existing topics, such as
I could not find an answer yet, hopefully some of you can help me out.
I am currently struggling with Chief Architect Premier, ray traces are really slow at 1080P (1 pass takes like 15-30 min)
Also working for in PBR is making my system really really slow and it is getting frustrating.
My model is not complex and I think I need an hardware upgrade.
Current machine (Notebook - April 2014)
X•BOOK 15CL56 NVIDIA GTX770m 3GB, Full HD (+/- 20000 3DMARK) Intel® CoreTM i7-4710MQ (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz) - 47Watt (Quadcore) 16GB DDR3L (1600MHz)

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Boxed MSI X470 Gaming Plus Max Crucial Ballistix Sport LT BLS2K16G4D30AESB (32GB Ram) Intel 660p 1TB Solidstate drive Graphic card? Nvidia? Any Advice?
I think the 32 GB of memory is already an overkill, not sure if this is needed.
But I'm mostly wondering regarding the choice of CPU and Graphics card
Is this a good setup? What kind of performance improvements can I expect? What would be your advice?
I have a client who had a set of hand drawn plans converted into AutoCAD to submit for plan check/approval. They are missing certain components that need to be added, see "scope of work". Have a dropbox folder for review if anyone is interested in bidding. The completed set of CAD files will be given to an Idaho engineer for review and submission.
Attached are samples of the files.

I have an uncle who asked me to design a dream home for his new ranch. He has many children and wanted a large home. I was wondering if anyone could give some general feedback on the plan and offer any suggestions? If he likes it enough, he may give me a room in the house! I would appreciate any feedback. One issue I currently have is the automatic roof on the rear section of the third floor. It is covering the windows in those rooms. Any suggestions on that? I would like the third floor to look smaller then the other floors from the outside but still have the rooms that are up there. I have included a download link to the file due to it being too large to attach here.
Thank you for your support.
Hi, I'm fairly new to the Chief Architect community. Hello to everyone! I'm still learning about CA (I've been using YouTube to teach myself). I would appreciate help from all the experienced users, hopefully creating professional friendships. I'm from Miami, FL and would love to learn more about this program. It's a pleasure to be a part of this community!
As I'm still learning the bits and pieces, I'd love to learn more on building elevation layouts. Unfortunately, I'm still struggling with converting plans to elevation layouts. Also, has anyone encountered obstacles with measurements? I'm the designer at a kitchen cabinet company. Often, the actual wall measurements taken at the home don't always work in Chief. Often by a couple of inches, sometimes by a foot or more. I'm worried I'm still messing up on the 3D renditions.
Could someone help me out? I'd love to learn how to make the elevation layouts. And some reassurance would be awesome!
Thanks in advance! I look forward to meeting new mentors and friends!
