3D Chief Architect Designs, Training, Coaching

Recommended Posts


I am a creative designer who has acquired unique experiences and perspectives from my collection of work as a designer and builder. I have degrees in structural engineering (BS Rice University) and architectural engineering (MS University of Texas at Austin) and have planned, designed, developed and built various, diverse projects over my 30-year career. 

 

I am a member of the American Institute of Building Design ("AIBD"), which provides quality continuing education to ensure its members remain current with technology, materials and building codes. AIBD holds its members to the highest standards of ethics and professionalism.

 

I utilize the latest technology like GoToMeeting to work with customers live online and OBS Live to record "how-to" videos for builders, designers and DIYers, instructing home design using Chief Architect. Training includes Chief Architect versions X10, X11, X12 and X13 for beginners to intermediate.

 

I have worked with owners, builders, designers and architects from all over the U.S., Canada, New Zealand and England. I offer time-saving design assistance as well as expert training in Chief Architect. I am available to design your home from concept to working drawings, assist you in learning Chief Architect and/or improve your existing home design.

 

Whether you need a home designer or just a few hours of training, I can accommodate you.

 

Regards,
Charles

Might be helpful to list which software versions you train in and also what levels of experience.
I offer a ton of different training services but will only occasionally train a beginner level user, and often refer them to other known trainers that handle beginners. If you are someone that will train a beginner then I would like to schedule a call at some point.
Nice to know if you will train offices.
Also helpful to know if you train in previous versions or in the HD suite.

I sent an email last week for services but have not heard back. I need training assistance soon, so if any others out there train beginners as well please contact me. Many thanks.

        Many of these I have personally made or modified. Some of the content may have been created by others for which I will give credit. Many of the materials have free licensing, so no credit is needed. 
      Some of this content may slow down your program as I have a high powered machine and often times use complex and high resolution textures. I will try and give as much detail as possible. Use at your own peril!
       
      No but seriously dig through and enjoy, I've spent a good number of hours ensuring the quality of these symbols and will update them periodically- so CHECK BACK IN! and PLEASE GIVE A LIKE FOR THE POST OF ANY SYMBOL YOU LIKE, IT ENCOURAGES ME TO GO BACK AND REFINE/REDUCE/OPTIMIZE THAT SYMBOL. GIVE A DOWNVOTE AND IT'LL PROBABLY ENCOURAGE ME TO DO THE SAME THING...YOU'LL JUST BE A JERK FOR IT

      I'm looking for someone working in X13 (Interiors) for ongoing help with floor plans and interior elevations. Someone who could help in a freelance capacity for my interior design business. This might include developing floor plans from hand drawn site measurements or PDFs from existing plans. Kitchen and bathroom elevations for construction purposes. Etc. No guarantees on the number of hours, but as needed throughout the year. Please reach out if interested.

      We are a well-established kitchen design and construction company in Rye, NY.  We have been doing award-winning projects for over 20 years. We are looking for a creative and detail-oriented design assistant to join our team.  The key role is to help the principal designer create beautiful 3-d renderings in Chief Architect for our clients, and then turn them into detailed plans and elevations for our field crews.  All our cabinetry is built in our own millshop so knowledge of custom cabinetry and interior design is required. 
       
      Employee must be located near Rye, NY for interactions with our team, clients and our field crews.  Some remote work might be possible once fully established.
       
      Salary $60-$75K plus benefits.  Thanks!  Jennifer Howard
