I am working on a project right now with a client that has a hard time fully visualizing the size of spaces even in 3D, and so I am wanting to put in a 3D block or silhouette of a person for reference. I understand that chief has 2D silhouettes, but I am hoping someone out there has gone about creating their own 3D version that they are willing to share or could give suggestions on the best way to go about making my own.
I cannot get roof to work on right side of house to work out. . I would appreciate anyones help. 8:12 on for gable. rest of roofs are 4:12. Remodeling additional. dark shaded walls are new walls.
Has to be kept in ver 12, because client wants to be able to pull up in chief 12.
Thanks in advance.

New to the Chief forum. I'll get right to it... I recently got magic plan for an iPad I have to easily do a floor plan when on site (Have always used pencil and 11x17 paper). It has it's ups and downs, but for the need to know dimensions (I shoot with laser, and it auto populates) it's been great and has cut my sketching time in half.
I have learned that Magic Plan can export DXF files. I have been watching tutorials on YouTube, and have learned how to import DWF/DXF into Chief. Learned about layering and so forth.
Here's the problem. When I import to chief and get all my ducks in a row, and layer all I can, chief won't recognize the cad windows when I go into perspective view. chief thinks they're all door openings in the wall when I Cad To Walls. How do I fix this? Using Chief x10.
Thanks in advance.
