Help! When I am changing materials on cabinets, floors etc. Chief will freeze and I get the spinning beach ball of death when selecting materials from my library.  This mostly happens on countertops, floors and cabinets when I am changing to a material from the manufacturer catalogs.  Anyone know how to fix this or is this happening to anyone else?

Sounds like one for Tech Support , I don't think I have ever seen a Beach Ball :) so I'm not much help.... you may have a bad symbol in the Library , especially if you import stuff from the SketchUp 3D Warehouse etc but you will need to provide more info as nobody even knows what Software you are using or what version.....I suggest filling in your Forum Signature and providing a few more details if you can..... see below.

 

It's good to have your Forum Signature filled in, especially with the Software Version, and of course a real Name is nice too :) ..............see mine below in Blue for how to do that.
If you don't see my Signature then you have them turned off for the Forum so you need to Toggle it on in UserName>Account >Signatures...... go to the Upper RH Corner of Forum Window.

Possibly the wrong SketchUp Version for whatever version of Chief you are Using ?

 

you haven't filled in your Forum signature , so we don't know what software you are using which is important at times...please see mine below.

      I've drawn the floorplan for the 7700 SF clubhouse of a development we are building. I need someone to actually do the finishes for the 3D and renderings.  I also need someone to finish the terrain work and exterior areas including portico with circular driveway and parking areas, pickleball courts, pool, outdoor seating and firepits.  Thank you! Please let me know if you are interested in taking this project and need price for your work.

      I found another post where users were trying to find better ways to generate more realistic grass, and further conversation brought me to Twinmotion to help me render elevations quickly.
      Here is a link to what I learned and shared on setting up an environment with grade and trees that is ready to import your CA model...

      Here is the link to both the background.tm and the Grade folder... (will need to be unzipped - see detail in above post for more details)

      UPDATE: Updated background files and details at the end of this thread.

      See steps in posts below to set up.
      FYI, I have been overwriting the background as I have improved it - it now has grass added from Twinmotion.
