Seeking Expert X10 Drafting Services

Recommended Posts

We are a small interior design firm in northern new new jersey, we rely heavily on Chief for our presentation materials and construction specs. We are working on a large project and need more bandwith in creating 3D renderings, condocs, etc. Also would like someone to set up our defaults and layer sets properly as we have never really done that correctly. Please provide portfolio and rates. If anyone is in the Metro NYC area that would be even better, but willing to try remote if we can trade markups easily. Must have experience in drawing millwork and cabinetry. Must be in X10.

      Gentlemen,

      I am a professional model-maker and cnc machinist looking to build a new 40'x60' workshop on my property. I am well versed in SolidWorks and AutoCAD, but not Chief Architect. I am contemplating renting CA for a couple of months to complete the design of my new workshop and generate construction drawings, but before I pull the trigger on that, and spend a good deal of time learning the software, I would like to get quotes for someone else to complete the design work and generate prints. Please contact me offline for details and to bid the job.

      I am a many year Chief Architect user as a non-professional designer. We have built some of my designs (including the house I have just sold and need to replace) but now I need to convert a design to a fully engineered, green project quickly. The design is single family, ~3,000 sq ft with a mix of carefully chosen pedestrian and high end details. We need plans for bids in two weeks and engineered plans in a month. I know this is quick but I did not expect to sell the house. I have done all of the work relating to lighting, views, wind, snow load, etc. and have the design hammered out but I cannot complete the fully engineered plans. Please contact me if you are interested.

      The following text is from a posted that has since been marked solved. The solution on that thread is about 3 years old and required a RAM drive using a third party download. As the issue I'm having is new after I've changed settings and only on this one file and my I'm curious if there is a different solution.
       
      [copied text from "SOLVED" post] I'm currently experiencing really long lag times every time I move a wall or other object. Interestingly though I've noticed that bumping a cabinet doesn't produce the same lag time (it's almost instant) UNTIL it meets another object like an adjoining cabinet. I tested this by pulling the cabinet out into the room which resulted in a lag, then when it was in the room I was able to modify the cabinet by bumping stretching deleting and replacing like normal. Upon pushing that cabinet back to its position next to the other resulted in the same lag. Also, I am able to modify upper cabinets fine while they are touching other upper cabinets however I did notice that when I UNDO a function I also get a lag. This makes me wonder if the lag is due to the computer recognizing that the elevations and 3D views now need to reconstruct that joint whereas before the objects were just moving within the space. I'm getting about 60-80sec lag times which is absolutely insane. I haven't experienced this issue on other plans so it's very strange and makes me think I adjusted a setting somewhere that is causing this. The file size is 6.7MB
       
      Thanks for any insight you may have on this. If it is helpful I can record a screen video just trying to figure out what might be the most helpful information to record.

      *** AS OF VERSION X11 CHIEF HAS ADDED A TOOL TO PREFERENCES TO DO THIS FOR YOU, GO TO
       
      Preferences > General> File Management > File Association    .........     which is at the very bottom of the TAB.
       
      ======================================================================================================
       
      ***Dec. 2018***   For X10 and lower versions
       
      Microsoft has now fixed File associations and you can do it via
       
      Start>Settings>Apps>Default Apps> scroll down to  Choose Default App by File Type near the bottom (not File Protocol)
       
      Now scroll Down and find each Chief File type and change the Default to Chief Architect X10 ( or your version )
       
      X10 should be in the list for each type to choose from for these File Types...
       
      .alb
      .calib
      .calibz
      .layout           (sketchup maybe associated at times with this one)
      .plan
      .undoplan
       
      If Chief isn't listed or a choice above it should offer to look for Other Apps....
       
      so scroll all the way down to "look for other Apps on this PC" (in blue) if X10 is not on the List already and in the Windows Explorer Window go to :
       
      C:\Program Files\Chief Architect\Chief Architect Premier X10 (64 bit) and select the File Chief Architect Premier X10.exe
       
      after the 1st File type (.alb above) X10 should be in the list for the Others and you won't need to do this part again.... you can only change one at a time so do these 6 types...

      ================================================================================
       
      ***Nov 2018***
       
      A recent Windows  10 Update has Broken File Associations for Many Programs . not just Chief
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      *** EDITED OCT 2018***
       
      It seems the Methods below may no longer work since the Windows 10 1803 Update in April
       
      Some other Options are :
       
      1.) You can also Right Click any .calibz file or .plan or .layout etc  and Choose Open With>CA X10  (scroll Down to bottom if you don't see X10 listed and choose look on PC  (see path below) and Select it, once found look for the Checkbox that says Always Use this App Check it 1st and then hit Ok
       
      The Default Full Path to the CA X10 Program is
      "C:\Program Files\Chief Architect\Chief Architect Premier X10 (64 bit)\Chief Architect Premier X10.exe"
       
      2.) You can also goto Control Panel>Default Programs>Select CA X10 and the Repair Button should appear and you can Use it to repairs Files for the Installed Program, this does not effect Settings etc at least not when I have tried it. This is useful if you re-install X9 or one of the Home Designer Products or an older version of CA, AFTER X10 and they overwrite the Defaults For X10.
       
      To Open Control Panel Right Click START>System> scroll to bottom on the right hand side and Chose System Info under Related Settings. In the top left hand Corner click on Control panel Home>Programs and Features> select Chief Architect Premier X10 (64bit)  and on the Ribbon next to the Organize dropdown Arrow you should see Repair appear, click on it and the Repair will begin. ( it will look like the Installer is running again)
       

       
       
      3.) There is also some Command-line Options available if you are familiar with Dos and the Command Prompt? ask if you need them , I will post them if needed but I don't want people messing their system up by accident.
       
       
       
      ==================================================================================================
       
       
      Original Method
       
      The X10 Upgrade does not seem to have reset the Default Application for .Plan, .layout .calib and .calibz , .alb Files, .undoplan to X10, which is why X9 is still opening when you double Click any of these File Types instead, from reading here on the Forum, it looks like it hasn't done this on the Mac OS either Instruction for Mac High Sierra OS are in Post #2
       
      Chief does not appear to have the ability to re-register default File Types like some Programs do, but it can be done manually via the settings App or Control Panel ( better/easier ).
       
      In Windows goto :
       
      >Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations
       
      if that just takes you back to the Settings App , right click the Start Button >Run and it the box copy and Paste this and hit <Enter> :
       
      control /name Microsoft.DefaultPrograms /page pageFileAssoc
       
      goto each File extension. ( list below) and click the Change program button at top right.
       
      scroll all the way down to "look for other Apps on this PC" (in blue) if X10 is not on the List already ( wasn't for me) and in the Windows Explorer Window goto :
       
      C:\Program Files\Chief Architect\Chief Architect Premier X10 (64 bit) and select the File Chief Architect Premier X10.exe
       
      after the 1st File type (.alb) X10 should be in the list for the Others and you won't need to do that again.... you can only change one at a time so do these 6 types...
       
      .alb
      .calib
      .calibz
      .layout           (sketchup maybe associated at times with this one)
      .plan
      .undoplan
