This question is not exactly related to technical issues about Chef Architect but I don’t know what to do. Let’s see… how can I explain this?
I’m really bad designing my own furniture so I usually download stuff from pages like 3D Warehouse. I save everything in the User Catalog. I try to keep everything in order and in different folders but, as you can guess, working with so many things is a mess.
I try to clean these folders regularly removing furniture I don’t use anymore but my hard disk is a disaster. I’ve been updating the software and now I don’t know where all the libraries are (including the stuff I downloaded). I’m scared of deleting the wrong "Chief Architect Premier X Data" folder.
Then, another strange thing that happens while working with downloaded symbols is that, after adding them to my catalog, their textures are lost. Doesn’t Chief Architect keep them?
I don’t know if I’m missing anything… How can I “clean” the software? Many thanks!
When I change the dimension of a wall sconce, the 2D symbol resizes too. I've never had this happen before when resizing electrical symbols. How do I prevent this from happening ? I've attached 2 pictures for reference.
Thanks in advance!
I would like to know how you edit symbols or CAD blocks.
I don’t have much experience creating my own objects so I usually download them from pages like 3D Warehouse.
Most of the times I need to make changes or remove elements included in these objects so I just load the symbol, go to Edit CAD block and try to modify what I need in the CAD Block window.
When the object is ready, I just add it to the library, but when I try to reload again the symbol previously created I can’t see it in the 3D view.
I’m sure I’m missing some steps or, probably, I can’t understand how symbols work.
Many thanks for the help!
