My firm has structural standards that are normally done in AutoCAD. I want to be able to achieve them in chief architect.
This is our section annotation. I was able to create the top but I need help on the triangle on the tail.
Also, is there a way to change the appearance or display the structural framing members as a polyline in plan view and have them as original in 3D?
We currently use polylines for our joists, headers, girders, beams, rafters, etc. with a 1" to 3" Global Line Width and either phantom, continuous, or dashed/hidden line types in AutoCAD.
I want to be able to produce our structural drawings like in chief architect instead of going back in forth because I like the auto framing features in chief.
Let me know if additional files are needed for clarity. Or if this is the wrong forum for this topic.
I am wondering if there is a way so use Saved Plan View Sets from one plan in another plan without completely redoing my template. Thanks!
I would like to control the display of CAD line length and angle labels by layer in addition to via the dbx. Is there a way to do this? I know how to use the dbx below under display options, but I have a file with a bunch of different polylines and I would like to be able to turn on and off the labels without opening a dbx for each one. I would also like to display labels with some layer sets and not others for layout views. Thanks for any suggestions!
Another bird's-eye view, this time illustrates the spaciousness that can be gained by added a few feet and some loft space in the Option 2 floor plan. Even though the head height is low upstairs, there is plenty of room to take advantage of a multi-use space like this.
Chief Architect's navigation and 3D rendering tools, along with extensive downloadable catalogs make it easy to see for yourself how a space can be used and lived in, before construction ever begins.
