What Would Be 1 Thing You Would Love To See Ca Fix Or Add?

Recommended Posts

If you could have 1 (one, uno, I) thing that would get updated / fixed / added / or tweaked in CA, what would it be? BIM? Stairs? Command Line? Undo List? Layouts? (Please keep it in topic and post only one wish and give a brief description) - Thanks!

Stair Tool. Right now I use the stair tool for sections and details and for 3D visualization...but turn off the Stair Layer for construction documents and make my own.

Basic file compatiblity with other high end 3D modeling apps so I can get stairs and other complex designs done quickly and efficiently.  I really do have two wishes :)

Out of curiousity, which modeling app and which file format would you like to see?

3DS for now, it is the best so far for 3D geometry, no layers though.  I use TurboCAD Pro Platinum version 21.  Powerful stuff, it has the ACIS Solid modeling engine, just not as automated as Chief for Architectural.

 

If you would like to know more, then post in the BIM thread so as not to Hijack this one.  Thanks

Stairs for me too. Having to do do 2 sets in separate layers so they an be turned on and off is time consuming.

I hope CA is listening and will make the necessary updates and fixes to get stairs up to par with other software (Autocad Architecture has had great stairs for the past 10 years) I depend a lot on correct stair representations for our homes, I think this issue alone will be the factor in my decision to switch my architectural team to CA, I will wait for X7 to come out before a final decision
