I am a current chief architect user and have a question in regards to the contour tool and driveway tool.
I have a plan that has a sloping site that I am trying to accurately portray in 3d for both client and the Local Council.
From the road front the site slopes left to right and from the back to front.
(I have attached Images shown what I currently have)
My question is there something that I am missing I have also tried in elevation converting/extracting a polyline solid but it doesn't quite work.
I have attached a link to the 3d viewer but can add a plan if need be. https://3d-viewer.chiefarchitect.com/go?share=503392208525732
OK, I give. No clue why I can't get my driveways to cut through the curb, creating a nice, graduated slope. Dumb mistake, I'm sure. Someone show me mercy; hurry. Please. :-)
is anyone aware of a specific catalog, free or otherwise, that contains single, rectangular wall-mounted flood lights? the default catalog contains two variations of floodlights but they both have a round profile and it won't meet the needs of my presentation.
Does anyone know how to make a driveway that runs up a sloping lot at an angle. Seems like it should be simple, but I'm racking my brain here and have come up empty with multiple attempts. You can see what I'm going for in the images below. The driveway feature just paints a driveway on top of the existing terrain topography, and I can't figure out how to create a slab or a terrain feature that slopes continuously the way you would expect.
I'm using chief X9, plan file attached.
Anyone know how to quickly level a driveway widthwise? I have a curved driveway that slopes over the length of it, which is ok, I only want to level it by width. The modifier 'level region(cut/fill)' doesn't work because it levels the entire driveway over length and width. If I do small sections at a time it will look choppy.
Also a separate question. Can I select an area to modify that already exists? like if I click on the entire driveway and want to use that shape to modify instead of clicking a modifier first and having to create a poly line matching an existing shape I have already made?
Thanks for any help.
