Demolition Walls in Chief Architect for Interior Design

Recommended Posts

There are no layers or layer sets for demolition in the Interior Design version of Chief.  I am thinking of using a new layer called demo walls which would be part of the demo layer set demolition.  But I understand you can't have layers over each other like you can in Vectorworks.  Any suggestions?

 

I use a Mac, version 7, 

thanks,

Take your as built drawing and show only the walls and windows (no doors). Cad detail from view. Select all those cad lines and put them on the demolition layer and make them dashed lines. Copy and paste into your plan view and lock the layer after sending all those cad lines to the back. Now if you move any walls or delete sections of walls that are demolished the dashed lines show through. Done.

Got it.  Could I just make them with the polyline tool, too?  I don't have that many demo walls, anyway...

If you have only a few walls to do you can use the wall hatching tool for that, on the Build Walls menu.

Yes, same methodology without the cad to view by just making a few polyline boxes will do the trick. The main thing to keep in mind is you can not have two walls in the same place.

      Create a space that inspires you like this eccentric and quirky kitchen. In Chief Architect, you can design spaces in any style from modern and clean to the classic English kitchen and everything in between. This space was inspired by #deVol and their Peckham Rye Kitchen Design.
      As deVol puts it, “If luxe and bohemian can be used together, then it is the perfect description for the Peckham Rye Classic Kitchen. A crazy mix of beautiful bespoke cupboards, ugly marble, and collections of stunning art and pottery.”

      Kerry, our rendering specialist, did an amazing job decorating the Saltbox house's interior with simple but dramatic materials that make this quaint style beautiful and welcoming.

      I feel like this bird's-eye view does a great job of capturing the Modern Cabin's livable space.

      Off the kitchen, near the back door, is a flex room space. This room could be used as a formal dining space, an extra bedroom, an office, or in this case a media room. Residents can work with the team to design a space that fits their lifestyle best.

      Reproduction fixtures make creating an period inspired bathroom easy. Antiqued brass fittings, wainscotting, and a pedestal tub and sink, paired with Damask wallpaper by Bradbury & Bradbury speak beautifully to the Victorian style house.
