Separating window frame to reveal material

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to see if there is a way to separate the material between the frame and the reveal of a window (or door).

When painting the frame it also paints the reveal the same material, and visa versa.

I have been a long time Chief user but never found a solution - so hoping someone has a good trick. Using X13 currently.

 

Thanks in advance!

I don't think there is an easy solution but perhaps a workaround or two...   Frame of one window and sash of another or frameless window with p-solid frame perhaps.

Similar to Chopsaws, set first window to desired color, unchecked fit frame to wall (I made it 3" but could be 0 same as Chops), copy paste in place, change to pass through with frame fits wall then paint- Only difference is no p-solids needed. Block them if you need more than one, bit tricky to mull  .

      Hello,

      I am trying to find the best way to model a Georgian window, with an angled inset into the wall's thickness, and a window along the inner edge (see the attached image). Note that this isn't a box window - there is no "bump out" - the window is set into the wall. I thought about using a wall niche, but I do not know how to create the angle. 

      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi,
      I was wondering if I can somehow setup spaces between door of cabinets to make a significant line between them.
       
      As you can see on the pictures, one (with that chairs) is what Chief does and spaces just disappear in render because they're too small, second one is image created via SketchUp, but I prefer Chief for modeling. 
       
      Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

      Hi, 
      I was trying out Chief Architect X12 and wanted to do a corner window, but as you can see on the pictures, sash does not go all the way in the corner, but rather than that is cut off before it.
      Does anyone have any suggestion how to solve this?
       
      Thank you in advance.
       
      (on the last picture there is also added a post, but that does not affect bug at all)

      Has anyone else experienced cabinet reveals changing from X12 to X13? I have attached images from an identical plan that was created in X12 from a cabinet library I created. The X12 shows as I would expect. X13 shows as expected as well. The difference starts when inserting cabinets from the library I created into X13.
      Chief has changed/added some default settings. The overlays in X12 are in the Box Construction section of the defaults. The overlays in X13 are in the Drawer Face Item Specification.
      The cabinet in X13 had the overlay changed form the default 3/4" from X12 to 1/16" when inserted into X13. I'm guessing it's because the overlay defaults have been moved to the Drawer/Door face item specification.
      I really don't want to have to redo the entire cabinet library as there are hundreds of them. The reason the library was created is due to our cabinet supplier having specific cabinet callouts.
       
      Thank you for any help.
