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.
Designer's Ink is a full-service building design firm based out of Stillwater, Oklahoma; however, we have worked on projects in 27 different states and 5 different countries. We have been in business since 1993 and have 5 designers and draftsmen on staff to serve you. We specialize in creating stunning 3D models of your building project so you can see exactly what the building will look like before you build. This significantly reduces the costs of change orders during construction. Many of our clients have told us they saved more in construction costs using our services than they paid for our services due to reduced change orders and value engineering during the design.
Once your 3D model is completed, we then produce easy to read construction documents. We take a lot of pride in our construction documents which we customize for each client's specific needs. Our goal is to produce our construction documents in such a way that the folks on the ground building the project have everything they need, and in a format they can use efficiently.
With over half of our clients being from out of state, we have been working remotely with clients for years. With the current restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, already having a system in place to communicate with our clients remotely is essential. We have been using our system for years, so we know it works well. We also offer one-on-one tutoring services for both Chief Architect and Home Designer Pro. We have been using Chief Architect for 16 years.
Please take a moment to look at our website at www.designersink.us for more information about our company. If you would like to set up a free, no-obligation initial consultation, contact us to schedule a time that works for you. We look forward to EXCEEDING your expectations.
Jeff Dillon - Owner / Designer
Open to new work. I've been working remotely for clients for years and can easily navigate the issues that present themselves from remote work. I have plenty of references and videos demonstrating my various services. The following images are snippets from my site at www.RabbittDesign.net
I offer training-while-drafting services in Chief Architect as well as training in Sketchup, Thea Render, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Procreate.
I tend to cater to experienced designers and drafters in Chief Architect, many of which benefit from and are quite pleased with anno/layer sets, library items, toolbars, and a more cohesive folder structure and .plan and .layout files.
A few hours of my service may cut hours off of every project you have going forward.
