I rendered this in Lumion. If you want my Lumion settings I can check what my settings were.

Had a feeling it was too good to be true for Chief :)  But still yes, do share the settings if you can.  I hope chief decides to up it's game with the rendering engine.

Here's a project I just finished. With the exception of 2 imported materials (grass & mulch), everything was modeled and rendered in X10.

Eric,  Where did you import those textures from?

Hi all!  I haven't shared anything here for awhile, so thought I'd post a couple of recent modeling/rendering projects -- two kitchens and a storage building. 

 

All were modeled in Chief (X9 and X10), including some of the furniture and lighting fixtures.  Rendering was done in Thea, with slight post adjustments in Photoshop. The storage building was photoshopped into the client's site photo, since the Nantucket planning board was concerned about how the building would affect the local streetscape.

Stunning as always. What is the name of the grey paint color in the 3rd pic? I love it!

The funny thing about rendering is how much an impact the landscaping can have on the realism of a given scene.  Learning to blend those elements can add a great deal to the impact of a rendering.


These below were renderings done in Chief 9.5  (NOT X9)

 

I photochopped the landscaping out of the real pics and did a rendering of the home from the point of view of the photo.

Awesome work, that's gotta feel so good to get it so close to reality.

 

Here's a budget rough conceptual render I just did for a designer. 5 hours on terrain/pavement/curbs/etc, 1-1/2 hour setting up the render settings for all future renders and additional imported items, and 1/2 hour rendering.

Not realistic, but good enough :)

Thanks man.  You might have missed it, but that was done about 10 years ago.   Was just using it as an example of how much landscape adds to the realism of the render. 

 

Your stuff is awesome by the way.  I can get good looking renderings, but I spend WAAAAY too much time to get there.  In the end, I cant justify doing it in most cases.  I can definitely appreciate when you see a guy who has that part dialed in!   Nice work.

Jay:

 

Materials and textures can really make a big difference in the overall look of a rendering.I frequently use my own textures since some of the ones in Chief's library look just a bit too perfect to be realistic. I have quite a few libraries that I draw from so I'm not sure which one I got the grass from but the mulch I just pulled from Bing Images. I've attached them both.

What a great compliment to get. I love hearing that.

first two renders I ever did was about 12 years ago...and man did it take me FOREVER! Like 2 weeks and a month respectively. Both in chiefs ray trace and I was too stubborn to

 ask for help.

I wasn’t getting paid or I would’ve likely been canned. The second one went through 14 redesigns as it was just a fictitious and completely unrealistic conceptual living room

Wow....those stand the test of time for sure.   Really nice work and just shows how the 'tools' have been there to output some really nice stuff for some time.   That living room is very nicely done!

Fantastic! Very interesting and lovely design and decorating, super photorealistic, simply a pleasure to view.

Thank you, I ran it through Thea a few years ago without changing a thing just to see what details would pop up missing. Obviously some funny details here and there but still happy with the overall feel..funny to see it change and see mistakes..one of these days I’ll pump some more hours into it

Sorry, it took me awhile to get back to this file and look up the name of the paint color.  It's Benjamin Moore OC-27 Balboa Mist.

Was just playing around to see what could be accomplished using the 3D Moulding Line tool.

 

These are the elements created with this one tool.

- Perimeter Soffit Valance & Accent light.

- Roof Trusses

- Sprinkler System

- HVAC

- I Beams & Columns

- Display Railings, Lower Column Surrounds, Seating Area, Back Corner Screens

I will share a link to a VR capable virtual 360 tour.  This first floor renovation was completed in Chief X9.  The contractor handed out pics to his "guys" and said we need to make it like this...using renders and the Virtual Tour.  I had a friend in the kitchen last week with the tour opened up on an iPad and he wasn't sure if he was looking at a photo or the real thing.

 

Click here for tour

 

Click on the purple "flowers" in the tour to navigate from room to room.

 

Kind fun.  The living room furniture models are Ikea models or I modelled them myself...exact carpet on the floor.

 

Comments welcome.

Man that looks nice.

May I ask how you handled the wall surface overhang at the foundation?

Did you use a very thick outer layer for the wall?

Thank you! :)

 

I just used the default Stucco-6 wall type for those walls. Not sure what that default thickness is set to off hand.

I’ve been goofing around creating a coat of arms for my

nephew to be, Jayden (expected at the end of the month).

It turned out pretty cool so I thought I would share it. A pair of

combative corvids seemed appropriate for a kid named Jay.

 

But Rich, you say, how is this Chief related?

Easy, Jay is a charter member of the Chief F.U.G. (Future User’s Group). ;)

      HI All
      I am ray tracing a scene with a 3D plant (from sketchup) and the shadows are showing squares rather than the actual shadow of the plant (1 pass image shown below).  I have purposely moved the sun around to cast shadows to the back of the image as I have found manually manipulating the sun gives much better RTs than using natural sun angles (at least for me).  I attach the skp file and what the plant looks like in the object info window of CA.  Any ideas how to get rid of this square shadow?  I uncheck the ray casted shadows in camera tool pre-ray trace, and it looks better but still ray traces with the square shadow.
      Thanks in advance,
      melissa

      Hello,
       
      I have the HTC vive, steam set up and am able to tour my projects, but it renders with weird flashes of black, sometimes a rainbow effect, usually fairly blurry. I have all lights, shadows and reflections turned off. Any suggetions on how to fix this?

      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.
      Feel free to check out my YouTube channel dedicated to all things drafting, designing, modeling and rendering in my signature below.

      I have a home design that I am working on in home designer professional 2020.  Would eventually like to get it completed and then a set of construction prints for Nashville, Tennessee.  whidh means I will need floor plans and elevation views as well as a plot plan.  I have the plot drawn with some contour lines in the drawing I have developed.  The house faces about due west (not the best but that is the lot I have.    I have attached a picture of what I want the exterior rendering to look like.  Looking for job bid.  The plan file is zipped and attached.  Following needs to get done and then a front rendering and the file returned with the updates.  (Can pay via paypal etc)  
      1. Master bedroom vaulted ceiling following rafters up to height of 12 feet then flat across.  House rafters will be 2x8 or 2x6 depending on span.  
      2. Fix the roof planes
      3. Shed roof with 2 in 12 slope over the back deck.  Extends out about even with the master.  This is asphalt shingles.  Ceiling will follow the rafters
      4. The peaks (side and front larger dormer) should be board and batten not sided, the rest of the house sided, the foundation walls are stone
      5. Make sure chimney carries through to the roof from fireplace in family room.  Chimney is stone where it can be seen outside of house.
      6. The basement foundation walls connecting to the crawl space (unfinished area) should be only 5' tall (it would just be in one area)
      7. Front porch is to have a metal roof, rest of house is asphalt shingles (charcoal color but not black)
      8. Stairs should be 42" wide and should be fixed . Want them closed underneath. Somehow I cant get this to look right
      9. Need a front rendering showing view of the house for presentation to client
      10. Need file updated to reflect these changes and has to be readable with Home Designer Pro 2020
      11. Floor deck for both the first and second floor are 11-7/8 TJI with 3/4 subfloor (I think I have this right).
       
      At any rate, looking for quote to get this done.  Thanks for looking.
