Importing Drawings

Recommended Posts

I have a question..... With Chief Architect, is it possible to import a PDF file from another program, lets say 2020 CAD, and convert it to CA?  Or do I need to re-do or trace it somehow? I work with other professionals that use other programs.  So, I was wondering if I could pick up where they left off, or is that to good to be true?

Are you talking about importing a PDF or a DWG? Either way yes. Yes you could trace either one.

Welcome

 

It's helpful to know the why as well as the what -- so many ways of doing things in Chief.

 

Are you creating a complete plan set, just a kitchen or bath etc?

 

Also good to know what software you are using. It helps others to have this info in your signature so it's always available.

 

See this topic for a signature how to.
