I'm new to CA. I'm using S-7.

 

I'm designing a detached accessory structure with an open beamed ceiling. The client wants to use 1x6 T&G sheathing for the ceiling finish.

In the materials menu of the roof planes specifications I changed the sheathing to plank decking. When I view the model in the perspective

view the planking runs parallel to the rafters. How do I rotate the planking so that it runs perpendicular to the rafters?

 

Thanks, Mike

o to the material and make a copy of it running the opposite direction and add to library. You will then have both directions available.

Just remember that if you wish the material orientation to show properly in all view & camera types you need to change the material rotation in both the "Pattern" & "Texture" settings in the Material DBX.

      Is there still no material that will allow transparency in Vector View? I use a lot of glass for deck railings and its completely insane what needs to be done to make an exterior elevation drawing look decent. Currently, I need to build my railings without any glass, then build the glass manually, place on a separate layer so I can have it on in renderings, but off in elevation views (vector). Then, in elevation view, I need (choose) to manually draw p-lines with transparent fill to show the glass without blocking visibility of the structure beyond.
      I don't like fighting Chief's defaults and auto features, but I also want my drawings to have a certain appearance. Anyone have any thoughts or tips for transparent glass (not windows) in vector views?

      Hi everyone, 
      Is it possible to create more then one new material at the time?
       
      I have in a folder filled with wood grain pictures (vertical & horizontal) and I would like to add them all to my library but doing it one by one will take forever... From what I see in the program, there doesn't seem to be a way yet. But I imagine or hope that someone found a way to do it.  I must not be the first user who wants to do that to save time. Any idea everyone?  Thank you.

      Hi,
      I'm having an issue with X9 - anytime I open an item and try to change the material type, I get a pop-up box that says "searching for files" and it appears to be searching through my file folders, but it's on a continuous loop searching the same folder endlessly so the search message isn't going away and I have to force stop the program. I've tried opening different files to see if it was just happening with a possibly corrupt file, but it's happening with several different files so I don't think thats it. I called the help line and they are not familiar with the problem. They said I should try my luck here. 
      Anyone have this problem?

      Hello,
      I'm using Chief Architect Premier X9 ( Version 19.3.1.8) 
      I cannot see any texture in my standard camera views and overviews. 
      I tried to in-install and re-install the software but it didn't work. How can I solve this problem?
       
      Thank you,
