Hi All,

I have a small insignificant detail problem that I wish to resolve and wonder if anyone has a Tip or Trick to fixing the fact that my Steel I Beams show up perfectly in my Posts and Deck patio beams but not in my roof beams.

 

I have changed all of my defaults to I Beams in my settings to no avail, just curious if this a detail I will have to learn to live with or a glitch in Chief?

 

Also I would like my I beams to show in the interior walls and imagine in order for this to happen I will need to create a niche and paint it black steel? Correct?

 

Please see attached image.

 

Thank you in advance,

John

is unclear at least to me what you are trying to achieve.  Do you have a pic of what you want it to model as?  Also in the future try using a vector view instead of standard and please don't make a pdf as anyone who wants to try to help has to download that to their computer to look at it.  If you use the windows screen clipping tool you can upload or just drag the resulting pic into the forum and we can view it directly in your post.

      SITUATION:  X13 3D renders, when compared to X12, appear blurred, washed out, less vibrant in quality and the vector renders have excessive line weights in X13
       
      Rather than hijack a previous topic thread, I am starting this topic as a result of a side conversation that emerged here-in:  
       
      It appears that there are others experiencing this same issue, and so I thought I would begin this here in it's own topic thread.  
      Here is a Dropbox link to image and video files (generated on both a i9 and M1 Pro Max chips) depicting the issue: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9zt4tagbuhsfkbi/AABsTnIW6DjT5uExeP6e5mcAa?dl=0
       
      As a note, I have already opened a support case with Chief Technical Support and they have graciously offered to look into it:  
       
       
      If anyone else is noticing lesser quality output with 3D rendering in X13 as compared to X12, perhaps we can share our experience and thoughts here as well as with support towards a workable solution.

      I need to add depth to my 2x8 rafters for insulation depth (12" for R-38). Shown is a purlin added to the ROOF PLANE ceiling finish. Is there any way to create a 2x furr-down that is aligned with the rafter but is non-structural?
      We finish attic spaces often so it would be great to find a way to represent this correctly.
       
      Thank you for any help you can give.
