Hi Everyone


I have been trying for a while to come up with a way to create this type of "rotated" molding line for half wall Paneling (Hampton style)


Now that I have figured it out I thought I'd help out by sharing my little Library


Hope you enjoy it as much as i do.


Stay posted as I plan on adding to the different style of panelling


enjoy :)

Hi Kelly

thanks for posting the cladding. I'm a new user to Chief Architect which I discovered only by accident having previously used Sketchup for my basic designs.

I have downloaded your cladding library which I'm most grateful for as I searched all through the default libraries without success :(  So Happy now haha.

I want to now apply the cladding as a new wall component along with the Framing, Builders Paper, Insulation & Plasterboard but am stumped on how to do so.

I'm using X8 btw.

Your library was imported automatically into the User Catalog and while it appears to recognise and permit dragging and dropping onto my floor plan showing the + symbol, I can't see where it actually applies it!! I have also tried using the 3D>Material Painter>Material Painter Component Mode (which works perfectly from with the Core Catalogs) but cannot use it from within the User Library :(

Wonder if you (or anyone else) can help perhaps

Yours 'Frustratingly'

      I have imported 50 or so items into the user library as furniture.
      Now I want to change all the items to another layer.
      How can I change all items to a new layer?
      The layer is now created.

      Hi there,
      I created a custom molding using polylines then created "Molding" symbol.
      It wraps fine on the inside corners but doesn't connect at the outside corner.
      See attached. And thanks in advance for the help.
      Kind regards, Tamela

      (x11) When I open an object to fill (closed polyline etc) I have a standard list and the library option that takes me to Chief's library. It currently only shows that I have patterns of my own making in User Library. It also appears that I can no longer open 3rd party .pat files as I could in earlier versions. And finally, I cannot find a basic EARTH pattern in the defaults. So either I somehow purged some of the patterns or there isn't a default EARTH pattern. And how can I import my earlier .pat files? Not sure if this happened after installing x12 or if it is just this one file. Not using x11 but to finish out this project.

      Working in Windows 10 on a surface pro laptop. All updates for Chief Architect Home Designer Architectural 2020 have been installed. 
      The library keeps freezing me out of my plan when I type a 2nd search in the search bar of the library browser. I can see the cursor out of the plan window but can't do anything but save and close the program to start again. This is very annoying having to start and close the program continuously. Are there any fixes for this?
