Anyone near Louisiana - Drafting Help Needed


Recommended Posts

I am seeking some drafting and layout page setup help.  I am a Chief product user of 9 years and currently use X9.  I currently design and build but I,m in the process of phasing out all the construction and will be doing design and consulting only.


I create all my designs myself, but I’m looking to work with an experienced Chief user that could efficiently setup my designs in layout.  Once my preliminary first draft is ready, I would like to then have it set up in layout.  Setting up all of my pages, elevations, sections, and construction documents etc.   Allowing me to focus on even more design projects.  I would then do the final editing and adding of renders etc.  I would have other drafting and design work once we began to work together.


If you have interest, please email me some references, work examples in Chief layout form, and your typical pricing information.



I am Located in Alexandria Louisiana and do design work throughout the State.

I'm located in Sulphur, LA. I own SWLA Drafting LLC, which has been gone by other names in the past. I've been in the residential house plan business for over 10 years now. Check out my website for a sample of what I can do.

I use X10 if compatibility is an issue. I am also upgrading my hardware to better run renderings, as my computer locks up in physics based mode whenever over 50 lights are on simultaneously. If you need renderings run, I can help there too.

      I have over 8 years experience with Chief Architect (currently using X14) and have worked on various projects from simple starter homes to extravagant estates, multi-family projects, production homes, and resort communities. I currently live in Oklahoma but have worked remotely very successfully for many years. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss with you how I might be of assistance on your next project.

      I am trying to learn how I can get Material Lists or Schedules with Material List info, to export to Layout. I am trying to add some value to my drawings to make it easier for my guys to do takeoff's. For example; create a schedule that shows, Material Type, Qty, Description, etc. and then export that to Layout. I have found that although we can generate a Material List with this information, the Material List (AFAIK) can't be exported to Layout. If that is indeed true, then how can we get this information to show up on a Schedule? Specifically, I am trying to get my roof shingles to show up on a Custom Schedule. Any ideas on how I can tackle this?

      Hello all,
      I am using CA X13.
      I am designing a house that has a wing that is at 45 degrees relative to the other wing of the house.  I am working with a Home builder and he has shown me that when a house is at 45 degrees, typically the elevation views reflect that by only showing the outline of the structure that is set at 45 degrees, like this.

      As you can see the garage portion is at 45 degrees relative to the elevation view.  I am pretty sure this set was produced with AutoCAD.  
      How can I make this happen in CA?
      Thanks in advance!
