Chief Architect Viewer Version 8

Recommended Posts

Our designer has been providing us with 3D drawings of our project so that we can review progress.  She recently upgraded to CA version 8, so we can no longer view her work.


Can you tell me how long we will need to wait for a version 8 viewer?

I would strongly suggest you ask her before doing this so you don't step on any toes, but you could consider downloading the trial version for use in the interim.

It is of course your right to do whatever you want, but as a designer and builder I know there are a lot of problems that can arise by getting "too many cooks in the kitchen". Using the viewer is one thing but being able to get in and make changes could lead to some unexpected consequences and may not be in anyone's best interest.

X8 Viewer is available. I have a client currently using it.

      Hello, what are various options (outside of CA cloud) for hosting 360 panoramic images generated by CA ?
      I am able to upload 360 images on Facebook & works nicely. However to share with client I will need some other option.
      - are there any free options ?
      - any paid websites which you are using ?
      - anyone using wordpress self hosted website to host 360 images, which plugin do you use ?

      The Viewer on the CA website is a great tool for my clients to use in doing 3D visualizations of a plan. Although you can not edit a plan in the Viewer, is there a way to "Lock" the plan making it "Read Only" and not editable if the client just happen to find somebody else with a full version of Chief?

          I am working on a model and instructed a friend of mine to download the Chief Architect viewer. He says that when he tries to load the model he gets an error that essentially says the viewer is unable to find the library components used for materials and color (i dont recall the exact wording.) Can someone help me with a solution for this? I am using X5. Is there a way that i can send the components with the model or could I instruct him to download them somwhere? I only have the core catologue and have not added anything to it as of yet. I am attaching a link to the plan file if that helps. Thanks again in advanced for any guidance you can give me.
