I'm still fairly new to Chief and have mostly learned from just playing around with things. Is there a way to create a custom-shaped section for a different material? For example, I am trying to make a curved pathway of wood, while the surrounding material is carpet.
I was able to create the pathway using polylines, and then changed the fill to a wood-plank pattern on the plan view. But I am trying to see the differentiated pathway in the rendered perspective view.
Should I be using the polyline tools to do this or is there a better way?
I am trying to align the orientation of the materials on a base cabinet with both drawers and doors. When I use the material painter to apply "Teak" for example, to a standard vanity cabinet, the drawers and the doors are always 90 degrees off. If I rotate thee texture of the cabinet 90 degrees, they both rotate. I need to rotate the doors or the cabinets separately. I want both the drawers and doors to have the texture apply in the same vertical or horizontal orientation.
Hi, I'm a new Chief Architect user. I'm still in training and can't figure out this issue. My pattern texture isn't showing up in my Elevation Views. Something must be toggled off because this is affecting all of my materials not just the siding, I just don't know what it could be. The siding has the preset "Hatch" pattern Chief Architect has already, I attached a screen shot of the Define Material dialog box too. Thanks in advance!
Does anyone have a
A "Slat Wood Wall Panel" or
"Acoustic Slat Wood Wall Panel?
I have a commercial project - historic hotel renovation & addition. My plans are set up with finishes, walls, etc., based on CA library of materials. I want my Room Finish Schedule to use generic descriptions such as "cpt" for carpet, LVT, PCT, HDWD (hardwood floors), etc. What is the best way to over-ride the materials I selected in defaults?
