I've used CA for years and AutoCAD since 1985. (Yeah I'm old).
In Florida we do a lot of Block house plans. (CMU) 8x16x8 concrete blocks.
Other than manually placing block patterns. Does anyone have an easy way to do wall fill patterns to show the ACTUAL CMU BLOCK Pattern in plan view.
It would be great if it actually placed filled cells required for all window/door openings and corners. Any suggestions?
A bird's-eye view gives a bigger picture to help imagine what it might be like to live in, and move through, this small home. This version's roof doesn't offer space for a loft area like some of the other architectural styles, but it does allow for high ceilings in most rooms and a functional, casual space that makes a small house feel bigger.
This view can be easily created in Chief Architect using the Full Overview Camera. We made a new layer set to be used in the camera view that turns off the display of the roof components and ceiling surfaces so we can peek inside the space. The Watercolor Rendering Technique, with Line Drawing turned on, gives this image a more artistic look instead of striving for photo realism.
I think I have an issue with my "template" plan as I cannot get walls located above invisible walls to build correctly. The wall in the attached plan is where the ceiling transitions from 12' tall to a room with a 9' tall ceiling. I attempted the same drawing in a stock Chief template plan and everything worked like it's supposed to...so, I gather I have a setting in my template plan that is goofy...

Having an issue with wall framing height. Never had this before and have recently upgraded to X11, so wondering if it's operatior error or the program, etc. Anyway here goes:
This shows exactly what happens. The wall framing does not go up to support the plate height.
Have checked the following to no avail:
Verified ceiling height was accurate
Wall is marked 'baloon through ceiling above' so we're not talking about a hidden attic wall messing this up - the wall actually does go up to the rafter - just the framing does not.
