Sharing my library content :) (X13)


Recommended Posts

Hi all!


I'd like to share some of my library content that I feel may be useful for others. These pieces are a mixed bag - some original work, but many are chief pieces that I modified or conveniently grouped. I  plan to add more from my collection over time. Please feel free to use/edit/adapt as you see fit!

Anyway that I can see what the details looks like.

We down leveled our version of CA to X12, I am unable to open your block.


Please and thank you...

No, I'm sorry but that would be a considerable amount of additional work.

Here's a detail with a bit more pizazz I made for stucco siding (Western 1-Kote).

Hot Arid climate (ARIZONA)

There's a PDF for whoever asked to view outside the .calibz file :)

      Good morning,
      Maybe a nit-pick, but when I wire up my sconce to a light switch, the auto-wiring goes to the face of the wall sconce globe and not to center of the base, which I would prefer.  So, I wind up manually adjusting the arc segment.
      My question is what controls/defines the snap points of the electrical wiring tool?  Is this something defined in the fixture block?

      My preference:

      Thanks again,

      I'm trying to update my electrical schedule with all the fixtures I'm using on a plan. Some of the electrical symbols require a wall to be able to be placed on the plan.
      How can I get a copy of the symbol to place in my schedule without having to add a wall to do it?

      For those of you that perform electrical load calculations or panel schedules for the electrical service on your projects, what resources have been helpful to you? Have you created any templates or worksheets for yourself to make this an easier process? Would you be interested in having a template in chief architect that another user has made?
      I'm curious who would be interested in sharing tips/tricks or anything that could be shared to used in chief architect. I have some things I've developed for my own use but not sure if others would find this useful or how many users incorporate this into their plans and services.
      Here's a few links I found really helpful: Method-Sizing Electrical Service.htm Method-Sizing Electrical Service.htm

      On a 2-story house, I display all roof planes on one floor (typically the first floor) for the roof view plan.  But for the electrical plan, I'd like to show the second floor roof on the second floor so I can indicate where the soffit lighting is.  Can I have a roof plan that shows all roof planes and also show the roof planes separately on the electrical plan?  If so, how?

      Hello, I'm new to chief architect and I'm trying to use this sink that I wants in my model but is not in the library so I have to download it from the website. But when I do it comes out in 2D and the 3D one doesn't come out like I want. I have downloaded the sink in drawing DWG, OBJ and I don't know what to do. The pictures at the bottom are the sink and what I get when downloaded.   sink
