Hello, I often time need to draw just one room not the entire Floorplan. In these situations the doorways leading in and out of the rooms show the landscape outside. How can I remove the landscape shown around a room from different angles without having to draw temporary walls around the rooms entry points.
For example the arch opening in this screenshot is supposed to lead to another room but I am only focused on this space. Do I have to draw the entire space or can I edit what is seen from that doorway?
We use X9 version. Is there a way to cut into a wall that's up against stairs going up and have a opening without using a doorway and make it follow the line of the stairs? See attached photo. The blue line shows where I want the opening to be done and it will be finished with drywall and will have no trim work or doorway opening. It will just be open. Thanks in advance.
Here is a video on how to mix the tools of chief to get the detailed framing for a wall with curved opening. This isn't the only way but one way to get the job done. Hope it helps.
On a side note, I tried to show some work flows that could help during chief model and symbol creation as well.
I am trying to open multiple brick walls with large openings supported by posts and beams. The exterior wall will then have multiple adjacent windows, all connected to each other.
However I can't manage to do this with Chief Architect.
When using a window, he doesn't allow me to continue the window, passing the perpendicular wall.
I tried to use posts and beams, however I can't find a way to say that the upper wall is carried by that post/beam and there's no need to keep a small part of wall to carry everything.
As pictures say a lot more than words, on the left what I can do, and on the right I would like to do:
Any advice on forcing ChiefArchitect to draw windows past the perpendicular wall is definitely welcome !
