Hello there!

 

My name is Alec. Myself and my partners have been using Chief Architect for two years now to do Full-blown Construction Documents. The more we use it though the more we realize we still don't know about this program. We'd love to meld minds with other Chief users in the SoCal area and create a network of professionals with the mutual goal of improving work-flow and speed up turn-around time. 

 

Please reach out if you'd like to join us in our quest for GREATNESS!

Hi Douglas,

Did you ever find a group in SO. California.  I am new to Chief and would love to join a group.  I live in Aliso Viejo,  CA.  I am a kitchen and bath designer, who hand drew until 3 years ago when I learned CAD.  Thankfully I was able to take a year of CAD at a local community college.   Its frustrating when I get stuck in chief because there is no one to discuss things with.

 

Thank you,

Cheryl~

I have been using this program for 15 years.  I have tried user groups,  private tutors etc,  The best way I have found to get help is right here on Chief Talk.  There are plenty of good folks on this site who will help you out.......  and just think about it....  you can usually get an answer in less than 10 minutes.

I have been using Chief for 3 years, 1 year full time. Prior to Chief I was using using AutoCAD since 1993.
At first I found Chief difficult to learn because of the different terminology used in each program. With  

help from the people on this forum I am almost as productive as I was with AutoCAD. One year from now
I should be more productive.

 

The people on this forum are a great asset to all Chief uses and are more that willing to help you.

 

With that said, I like the idea of a So. Cal. user group. I live in Simi Valley. Years ago I belonged to

the AutoCAD Users Group. About 100 of use would meet once a month in Burbank. It was great

to get together other in our field.

      We are not seeking remote services or contract services at this time - so only those that can work in and around Central Ohio need reply.
       
      The Drafter/Designer creates working drawings for construction of new custom homes, as well as creates specific details for specialty items such as fireplaces, kitchens, bathrooms, and exteriors.
       
      The Drafter/Designer must utilize strong communication skills and attention to detail while working with the Operations team to incorporate all details from the contract and customer selections into construction drawings.

      I sell Structural Insulated Panels and often need to create a schematic to obtain a package price.
      Many times the client wants to move forward and I do not have the time to take the design to a permit set. Most are simple designs.
      I work in the Pacific Northwest so I need someone who is familiar with the energy codes and permit requirements in Or and WA

      I currently have a remodel to an existing home. I am a General Contractor. I need someone to take some PDF's and DWG's and turn them into an existing plan, plus add to it the proposed remodel. Needs to be ready for submittal to Kootenai County, ID for permitting. I can send you plans for review. I would like to reach a flat rate fee plus an hourly for revisions if necessary. I am working in CA X12 and would like them in that format for ease of transfer. Please give me your availability as I am looking for someone to start very soon. Thank you.

      I am an experienced Chief Architect Designer of (7) years now. I have completed several large scale, high end custom residential home projects, here in SW Florida. I have samples of my work, and photorealistic renders, full walkthroughs animations all done in Lumion software. Pls, reach out to me, by phone, or the email listed below. I’de love to hear from you now. My rates are based upon the project, but, an idea of what I charge, is normally $50 per hour for my drafting and design time, this is somewhat negotiable, and can be addressed when we discuss your project together. Pls reach out to me to discuss your next project. Thx!
