Not necessarily a software related question, more of a detail question. I am designing a pool house with a large roof overhang. The client would like to expose the steel I-beams being used to support the rafters. Wondering if any of you have details you are willing to share of I-beam to rafter connections? How to properly flash wall above steel? Run the SPF top plate thru and bolt to the beam? Anything is appreciated.
I am just working on a masonry garage design, and have been held up trying to figure out some details. One is for steel lintels that I am putting over the openings. The closest thing that you can use as a header type is a steel-box but I will be using steel angle. The header column shows the dimensions including the length of your lintel but only gives 1.5" on each side of the opening. Is anyone familiar with a way that I can change this to more? Otherwise, I will just remove that column and leave a note in the comments.
Second issue: When you pull your cross sections from a CMU building, it shows your trusses sitting right on the block. For now I have manually drawn my plate in with an anchor but I was curious if there is a way to do this as well?
Seeking community help. I am a new user and had created a layout in the trial version of Chief Architect Interiors. I cannot save the plan since that would require a purchase of the interior version, I have purchase the full version of the Premier edition. Is there any way for me to copy paste the layout from trial to full version? I have tried copy/paste and it rejects me. Any help or advice is appreciated. I look forward to being part of the forums.
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.
Chief Architect versus Revit, Sketchup, and Autocad for traditional conceptual home design and other tasksBy Reddrick
Everyone what do you think of Revit, Sketchup, and Autocad? And how do you think they compare to Chief Architect for traditional conceptual home design, custom complicated modern home design, and detailed construction home drawings?
