To: JCAFFEE,

 

This is a different subject matter to which I would appreciate your assistance. You replied to someone who was asking the question, "do you know of any website links that offer 3D downloads for modern furniture beyond what is available on the 3D Trimble Wharehouse and Library Content. The reason I'm asking is I can no longer find that particular formum response.

 

Thanks,

rflorez

I would love it if someone can create the walls, floor and ceiling for this newbie to be used in Chief Architect.

Please mail it to me at pierre.combrink@gmail.com

 

I have way to much to learn to even start thinking about import/export CAD obj,dxf etc. It is still a foreign language to me.

 

All help will be greately appreciated.

 

Thanks

      I started working on a wall niche thinking I wouldn’t have any problem but the more I walk, the more doubts I get.
      Here they go a good bunch of questions related to this:
       
      - If I remove the frame of the wall niche I get a brown texture that I want to replace by the one I used on the floor of the room. How can I expand that one inside the niche?
      - Then, is it possible to change the color of the wall niche inside (not the whole wall)?
      - The same way, is it possible to change the color of part of the wall?
      - Now related to the cross section view, it’s almost impossible to select some objects because there are other elements in front of them. How can I do that? And, at the same time, why some objects aren’t visible in this view?
      I know; too many questions. Sorry!

      Our Content Development Team has been churning out new PBR friendly materials over the past few releases. These are materials that include a combination of Normal Maps, AO Maps, Roughness Maps, and Metal Maps. We use a software specifically designed to generate custom materials for 3D Rendering called Substance Designer. The program leverages parametric values to control sizing, colors, pattern, and other elements to generate unique tile-able texture maps along with automatically producing the other relevant maps need to create the effects that you expect to see in PBR and Ray Trace views.
       
      Our process includes generating individual materials then importing them into Chief Architect and distributing the catalogs that you download and use. This converts the parametric materials into static images that aren't as flexible as those that are created in the Substance Designer Program.
       
      Much like the Client Viewer and 3D Viewer products that are available for use with Chief Architect, Substance offers a product that allows others to leverage the parametric files to create their own custom materials... without needing to be an expert of the full-fledged program. We would like to invite you to try it out and create your own custom materials from the file we've set up for Tile.
       
      How does it work?
       
      First of all, a healthy understanding of how materials work inside of Chief Architect is a good starting point, and we just happen to have a couple primer videos ready for you here.
       
      Advanced Materials
      Creating Custom Materials and Colors
       
       
      Once you understand how Chief Architect behaves with different properties and maps, you can dig right in and make your own maps using Substance Player (a free download) and these source files we've set up to generate materials.  Just download the Substance player from the link below and use it to open the builder SBSAR files you wish to work with.  To assist, we have a quick video showing how to use Substance Player to get your custom maps into Chief Architect:
       
      How to use Substance Player in Chief
       
       
      Substance Player (Download) 
       
       
      (Dustin Cruz Edit: Some of these file are downloading with timestamps added to the front of the filename, they still work fine. example: 1888175955_WoodBuilderBeta.sbsar, we're looking into it!)
       
      Tile_Builder.sbsar
      Wood Builder Beta.sbsar
      Single Color Fabric.sbsar
      Multi_Color_Fabric.sbsar
      Masonry_and_Stone_Builder.sbsar
       
      We'd love to hear what you think. Is this useful? Are there other material types you'd like to try with the Substance Player tool? Voice any requests or questions here, or via e-mail to content@chiefarchitect.com . 
       
      Chief Architect is not affiliated in any way with the Substance Designer or Substance Player software programs. Chief Architect will not be able to offer any support for the Substance software products or files. Using the program and files is completely voluntary. Substance compatible files are provided simply as a gesture, with no guarantees, extended to give access to more material options for those who are interested.

      I am trying to align the orientation of the materials on a base cabinet with both drawers and doors.  When I use the material painter to apply "Teak" for example, to a standard vanity cabinet, the drawers and the doors are always 90 degrees off.  If I rotate thee texture of the cabinet 90 degrees, they both rotate.  I need to rotate the doors or the cabinets separately.  I want both the drawers and doors to have the texture apply in the same vertical or horizontal orientation.

      Hi, I'm a new Chief Architect user. I'm still in training and can't figure out this issue. My pattern texture isn't showing up in my Elevation Views. Something must be toggled off because this is affecting all of my materials not just the siding, I just don't know what it could be. The siding has the preset "Hatch" pattern Chief Architect has already, I attached a screen shot of the  Define Material dialog box too. Thanks in advance!

      Hi
       
      I have a new ALIENWARE M15 RYZEN ED. R5 laptop.  I have installed my ca 11 on my new  laptop.  I still can't get any textures,  I have updated my core library and bonus +manufactures libraries.  I have no idea why I still have no textures,  works on my old lap top fine but does not show in standard rendering on this new laptop,  The image shows the standard rendering and the material I was trying to  I was trying to add to the island.
       
      It was suggested I back up the plan - but nothing changed
       
      Any ideas thanks
