Can CA generate individual wall panel sheets?

Recommended Posts

10 years ago I used Solid Builder 19.2 to create wall panel shop drawings for an apartment complex in Junction City, Kansas.

It was great software for creating individual walls saved to PDF by page so that they could be manufactured off-site, stacked in reverse assembly order, and then delivered for rapid build out.

I haven't had the need to do anything like that since, but I was wondering if walls could be broken into individual panels and printed on single pages relatively easily in Chief Architect?

 

See attached file for the output document that Solid Builder creates.

It won't be exactly like that but you should be able to work something out that would be acceptable with a Wall Detail and Framing Schedule.

Could come pretty close to that if we could rotate the measurement values.  We would need behavior for displaying the dimension values similar to what the story pole tool gives us.

      Now that I have your attention I need to create the iconic design used on the set of Star Wars for a customer. I would like to use this for some cabinet fronts as well as a wall panel in the entrance hall. How do I even begin t create something like this? Thanks for any input.
