Dave, I'm getting Texture Missing on all but the Carrara Marble. What did I do wrong?

 

I'm not sure.. Has anyone else had this issue?

Well that is odd..! I guess X8 has another BUG. I wonder if I just attach a plan file with all the textures. Does this work?

Dave,

The textures imported perfect.

I imported the "DMDz Chief X8 Textures.calibz".  Then when I opened your plan file they all showed up for an easy reference.

Thank You!

David,

Thank you for your time and expertise!

 

I have no Idea why it doesn't work on my puter, is it a setting in windows 10 maybe?

 

I tried a new download of calibz file and the plan.  no joy. this is the error message I get.

 

Try the backup entire plan, select the files to be sent to a zip.

 

This is how a sample file download from Chief comes.

I think since you copied and renamed the original texture file, chief has lost its link to the location of the texture.

I had the same thing Michael had It seems its trying to read the texture from Daves drive which is D 

 

Also one of the textures it displays one image and the preview window has another image.

 

Also if I click on the plan link on the blog page it opens directly into CA  instead of the window with an option where I want to save the file, which is very odd.

P.S

 

I think that carara marble texture was corrupt, Before when I downloaded the plan I couldn't see  textures displayed except  Carrara Marble was showing on one countertop, same thing as Cheryl noted, when I deleted Carrara Marble from my library, and uploaded the plan again I could see all the textures on the countertops except  Carrara Marble Texture. Strange but maybe there is something between Mac and windows.

Great Idea - BackUp ZIP of all TEXTURES..! File Attached -- Fingers Crossed..!!

 

Its very odd it works for Chief Architect and most users here, but why not everyone? It might be the fact that they are on my D: drive and when loaded up onto other peoples PC there C: drive can see them?

Hey Dave,

 

I just downloaded the Zip and unzipped into a folder... Did you take the Carrara Marble Texture out? Because it's not there anymore and everything it seems to work good now. 

 

​As trying to read the D drive, yes I think that's what it does, because before I downloaded another plan and when I got the texture box come up I had where that person who uploaded file was storing his texture which was c:/ username/ and where that file was stored/name.jpg so go figure whats going on in there  :unsure:

      Warm, sturdy, fire resistant materials common to a Tuscan home made this style an obvious choice for the Paradise Rises project. Stucco on the main house is accentuated with natural stone on the wrap-around porch and fireplace. Tile roofing is a bow on top.

      Is there a way to download a picture of a tile from a manufacturer's website and create a material?  I am trying to use the attached pics of tiles for a backsplash in a kitchen and have followed the instructions on the videos, but cannot get the tile to align properly.  I have attached pictures of the two tiles I'd like to show the client, and a picture of what happens when I try to use the material.
      Thanks!
