Hey David,

 

Thanks for the help! Haha it was beefy when i bought it (maybe 10 yrs ago?) - Dell Desktop i7cpu 2.67Ghz with 8G RAM. im running Windows 10 but video card will not do 3D.  it does what i need but since i started dabbling with my house plan i re-discovered how old it is haha! I'll see if can figure out the Elevations and Cross Sections, so far just playing with the inside layout, etc..

 

Thanks,

Chris

The Home Designer Series has it own Forum over here : https://hometalk.chiefarchitect.com/

 

However if you are getting an Error in X13 cos of low GPU  then I'd suggest trying HD Pro 2021.... which has lower specs

 

Even Elevation Views are technically 3D in Chief/HD , so David's advice may still not Help?

You can do your Forum(s) Signature with the help of David's Video so people know what you're using both software and computer wise....

The information below applies to all or our products but the links are specific for Home Designer.

 

All elevation and cross section views are actually 3D views.  If your computer is not capable of creating 3D views, you will not be able to create them.  You will likely have problems even just using basic plan views because we use 3D views all over the program including in most dialogs and in the library browser.

 

I recommend reviewing the system requirements here:

https://www.homedesignersoftware.com/products/system-requirements.html

 

If your computer does not meet the minimum system requirements, then you might want to either upgrade your system or talk to customer service about what your other options are.

 

If your computer does meet the system requirements but you are still having problems creating 3D views, you may want to review this tech article:

If all else fails, you may want to contact our technical support team for additional help:

Hi Dermot,

 

Yes i discovered yesterday that my system in fact does not meet the requirements.. You're correct - I can't even generate 2D Elevaton/Cross Section views.  I am renting the software right now so i will make a decision soon.. would love to upgrade my system maybe next year.  Thank you for your reply!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

You should Call Sales and explain the Situation and see if they will let you Rent 2021 instead , as it has the Old 3D Engine and will likely work on your Older System until you can upgrade.

Okay thanks Mick i will give them a call and see what they say... so you think 2021 will render 2D views without meeting requirements of the new graphics card ?

 

You haven't done your Forum signature , ( see mine for example below)  so I have no idea what your computer specs are ?

 

 

There is a whole new 3D Engine in Chief and HD this version around and there are quite a few who no longer meet the Specs ,

even though X12 and HD 2021 worked just fine.
