Simpson Strongtie STL Files are now available and import direct into Chief....


For all items not in the Chief Library this is worth a Shot.....


 All Credit to Chopsaw for the link, in another Thread, I just thought I'd post this for Other Users here in the Symbols Forum too


STL works quite well ...I didn't realize Simpson was supplying them now, I sorted the page on left for STL only and there are 2700+ items....




they all come into Chief as Porcelain material ??? but not hard to change.....

Thanks Mick.


FWIW, for any of these symbols you import you should set the "Stretch Planes" outside of the Symbol Boundaries.  That way they can't be inadvertently stretched.


I hope that CA did that already for the Manufacturer's Library.


Thanks for the Info Joe appreciate it....

      I have Chief Premier X9 and would like to know if there is a way to create floating shelves in my drawings. Such as wood shelves with metal or wood brackets. Or are there pre-set ones already that I don't know about?
      Thanks in advance.

      I have Drawn an Shower using Joe's method, Stem wall with Glass Panel. I have been trying to insert Hardware. Wall Brackets. I have been unable to center them on the Glass panel.
