Hi all, Just wondering if anyone could help with some issues Im having with importing 3d symbols - I am trying to import some SKP files into chief (decor, people etc) and while some are coming in fine others are coming in with no texture/materials or the materials are not applied correctly (eg a symbol of a person the texture is placed wrong) - if someone could help me out with how to "lock" the material that would be super helpful. Thanks
first image is how it appears in sketchup and second how it imports into CA
Hey everyone, I was wondering if someone would be able to convert some 3D symbols I have into something I can import into chief.
I need some specific symbols for a design I am doing and an unable to figure out how to convert them (including their textures) into one of the formats chief will allow to be imported as a symbol. I have tried pulling the obj and fbx files into sketchup but they are missing the textures and these are quite complicated collections, too many textures to add back in one at at time. I only have a basic knowledge of sketchup and have a mac computer which doesn't support 3ds max (the only program i have come across to do this).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
They are big files so i can zip and email them if someone is willing to help.
What determines which CAD blocks get shown on this list, under "2D Block" in the Symbol Specification window? Or, more to the point, can I affect which CAD blocks get included in that list? I have a symbol in my User Catalog that I'd like to replace this fixture's assigned symbol with, but it doesn't seem to have made the list. It's hard for me to intuit what criteria this seemingly-arbitrary collection of CAD blocks all meet that make them distinct from all the CAD blocks (like the one I want to use) that are excluded from the list.
Is there a way to overlay floor sheets so you can line up different floorplans on different sheets eg. Have the electrical plan positioned exactly in the same place as the main floorplan sheet, or line up the upper level plan sheet with the lower level on another sheet?
Like the reference tool on the plan detail, but on the sheets
