I really need some help. I'm new to Chief Architect and I've nearly completed the design for the home that I would like to self-build (99%done). I would like to send my plan out to get estimates on materials and labor but last night my version (X7) of Chief crashed and I can't get it working again. Can someone please help me to:
1) Review my plan and tidy up any mistakes.
2) Generate a floor plan with dimensions
3) Generate elevations
4) Generate a material schedule
5) take some concept shots
I would be really grateful to anyone who could help me with this. i'm trying to keep the budget low but I am willing to pay for your time.
P.S. The file might show an error but it is possible to get it working.
Hello! You are looking for someone who can help design your next project but don't know where to start. With more than 6 years of experience as an architectural designer, I believe that I may be the right freelancer for you. From all of the experience I have gained over the years, I have learned important guidelines and standards to which I apply to every project I am a part of.
My brief information is as follows:
-Architectural (6+ Years)
-Building plan sets
-Interior design renderings
-Chief Architect X6-9
I upgraded from X7 to X8 and now the F10 key no longer toggles angle snaps on / off.
It requires digging into the edit menu, then submenu to do what used to be an easy thing.
Is there a work around to this unfortunate software decision?
Also, wouldn't it be nice if your cursor didn't display the distracting icon when angle snaps are off?
I find it gets in my way and wish it was simply displayed at the margins of the screen, similar to when your CAPS key is on.
