I have doen all of my cross sections and details in AutoCAD and am trying tgo import into Chief. Everything comes across great except for my text formatting - if I dont explode my text in CAD prior Chief doesn't see it at all and by exploding it I loose all my formatting. There is ALOT of text to deal with. Anyone here know of a workaround for this? Thanks!
Hi there! I have been searching for a bit, and attempted a few things to no avail. Anyone have a step by step tutorial (or is it just not possible?) on how to at the very least import an existing title block from Revit or CAD to Chief? I am far from proficient in Chief at this point and wondering if it's possible. We want to make sure the title block matches our Revit sheets exactly...in case we have to draw something in one program vs. another in the same CD set.
I tried exporting to .dwf from Revit and importing into the layout page, however it doesn't allow me to import that file type into the main layout page.
Also, am I blind? I can't figure out where to put my signature...so I just typed info below.
Rafter P Construction
I have a client who hired me to finish his plan that he did in home designer(not something I normally do but he was close and I didn't have to commute) anyway, when I print the line weights are huge only on the floor plan. All my other sheets come out just fine. Can't figure out why this sheet is having so much difficulty. My text looks fine but all other line weights and line types are off.
In South Florida, homes are prominently constructed out of concrete blocks, metal studs & beams, concrete headers/lentils/beams, and wooden trusses. Which software would you recommend that would be best suited for concrete home construction?
Also, I can't find any training videos for CA that uses concrete blocks and therefore I wanted to ask you all if you know of any videos or tutorials for CA... Or maybe one of the aforementioned software would be better suited for concrete block construction?
I have a client who had a set of hand drawn plans converted into AutoCAD to submit for plan check/approval. They are missing certain components that need to be added, see "scope of work". Have a dropbox folder for review if anyone is interested in bidding. The completed set of CAD files will be given to an Idaho engineer for review and submission.
Attached are samples of the files.
