2D demonstration of a shed Help

That is a symbol from the library.

Resize it as needed.

What type of 2D drawing do you want - plan, elevation......?

I am not going to do a video as there is plenty of information regarding the production of a 2D drawing.

You will need to do a bit of homework and find out how the program works.

yes, its a symbol though I actually want this symbol's 2d drawing to build it in reality as one of my plans is in process of construction. I want to measure the sizes and angles of steel bars which could form a shuttering source for concrete.

I want someone to assist me in making a CAD plan for this shed as I am going to get this shed built. I am confused about how to measure the steel bar lengths and angles. In CA I just resized the symbol and pasted it on my plan.

Aamir,  Make a copy of your edited Awning and put it in a fresh plan file.  Treat it as it's own structure and document it with elevation views and a Orthographic Top View or the auto generated 2D cad block.  You can make cad detail from view's of each and snap your dimensions to the linework or open the individual lines to check length and even edit the linework if necessary. Compile and send to layout.  The shop will let you know if they have enough info to build it for you I am sure.  Oh and since you are using Chief include an nice 3D perspective rendering so they get the overall concept quickly.

Double click on the line. 

 

Or click on the line and do a CTRL+E on your keyboard.  

That is the fixture specification dialog box. How could I read the angles of steel bars upon which the whole structure is made for this awing

Did you read this post from Chopsaw?

If you are getting the fixture dialog box when you double click or hit ctrl+E, then it looks like you missed a key step in Chopsaw's post. You need to convert the view to a CAD detail. Search help for how to accomplish that. Once its a CAD detail, the entire view is made up of polylines, so you should be able to get the exact length, angle, etc when you double click on a segment.

Yep. I am missing the part of converting the view into CAD. How to do it in a simple way? 

Looking for a short cut.

I know this is going to sound heartless but it seems clear that you are a complete neophyte to the program.  We all try to help one another here in this forum but when you don't even know the basics of how the program works you are going to have to spend a bit of time going through the beginner video tutorials to learn some basics.  

 

If then you have some problems I am sure there are a lot of us that will leap to your assistance.  In the meantime, if this is something that you need urgently, I would suggest you hire someone to do the drawings that you need.

Take Elevation Views from each side (1) and then convert each Elevation Camera View to a CAD Detail (2) , then add or remove CAD lines and add  Dimensions etc as needed (3) a and b

Thank you so much, I just logged into the CA Forum and saw your post. Will definitely try it.

You are right at it. I am learning a lot from all of you. Thank you.

Whenever I try to take a cross-section elevation view of the symbol which I copied to a blank new plan, no 3D view appears. Views only appear if I press orthographic full or floor overview buttons whereas pics you uploaded depict that these views should come through cross-section elevation as you encircle in pic #2.  May I be helped a little more?

      Hello there!
       
      I'm new to chief as of a few weeks ago. I'm really loving how in-depth you can get with it. Hopefully this isn't to much of a newbie question that is easily answered somewhere else but I have seen anything on it. I'm trying to attach a shed roof to a gable. I have a feeling this is something similar to a porch roof, but after messing with it for a few hours I cant figure it out. 
       
      This is what I'm go
                                    
       
      Here is where I'm at. 
       
      I've attached my plan if that helps!
      I'm using x12 
       
      Thanks!

      I am drawing a cross section using 2D CAD lines (to get more detail than the automatic cross section Chief creates).
      I am having issues finding a Batt Insulation Pattern to use.
       
      I am using Chief X9
       
      - Chief Architect has a Block under "CAD Blocks / Detail Components / Insulation / Batt / 5.5" R-21", but unfortunately it is only 12" x 5 1/2" of size, so if I want a smaller or bigger section, it stretches the block and the proportions change. 
      - I found a free .PAT file online (attached), but It needs to be in a specific location to work, the minute I move the polyline with that pattern in it, the pattern moves with it.
       
      I have tried to illustrate this in the attached screen shot. 
      Please let me now if anyone has any recommendations / solutions to this issue.
       
      thanks,
      Angela

      A bird's-eye view gives a bigger picture to help imagine what it might be like to live in, and move through, this small home. This version's roof doesn't offer space for a loft area like some of the other architectural styles, but it does allow for high ceilings in most rooms and a functional, casual space that makes a small house feel bigger.
      This view can be easily created in Chief Architect using the Full Overview Camera. We made a new layer set to be used in the camera view that turns off the display of the roof components and ceiling surfaces so we can peek inside the space. The Watercolor Rendering Technique, with Line Drawing turned on, gives this image a more artistic look instead of striving for photo realism.

      How would I go about raising the height of my roof, without changing the pitch? I want the roof line to end at the deck, but when I try to modify the roof with the edit handle the wall comes up against. I want the wall to end at the deck of my A-frame, ad have the roof end at the deck.
