I am using Chief Architect Premier X9
My defaults seemed to have changed so that when I select a window - it is now showing temporary dimensions of the window casing / center of window / trim. (see attached screen shots)
How do I change this to only show the window opening to wall stud?
thanks in advanced!
I'm sure this has been discussed, but I can't find anything specific that answers this question.
I'm trying to create a simple vanity with two drawers and an open shelf underneath (see inspiration image of "vanity"). I simply can't figure out a way/remember how to add a shelf other than by using the shelf command. While this works visually, it treats it as a separate part of the vanity, thereby creating two separate pieces. In the Working Plan and Kitchen and Bath View plans, the shelf shows up on top of the sink while the 3d view shows the shelf in the correct place! I guess maybe it's, in part, a layers thing?
I know there has to be a better way of doing this. What am I missing/forgetting?
Is there a time effective way to do drywall returns? The attached image is the look I am going for, which I had to do with polyline solids. I have tried all the solutions in this forum. https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/topic/23244-q-window-how-to-do-a-sheetrock-return/?_fromLogin=CA2&_processLogin=11&csrfKey=e715967502c760b691e12966cba733f8&ref=&code=CSFNSc4fApHaoLJkMIIN_zkZ
1. I am not interested in workarounds (polyline solids, molding profiles, window treatments)
2. Simply turning off the frame has the fir framing exposed. See second image. I do not want to create new wall types that are solid drywall.
3. I would be happy if you could paint the frame the drywall color, but it seems Chief does not have the capability to separate the frame from the sash.
I would think that this is a very common detail, and it would be a huge oversight for all the various industries using this program to not have drywall returns. Thank you all for your time.
Is there a way to do a cedar lintel above your windows? I am not having any luck. I am going to attach a picture of a house to show what I am trying to achieve. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I am still fairly new to Chief and I am trying to learn as much as I can.
is it possible to create windows with drywall returns and a wood sill. When I create a window I choose these options.
1. no interior casing
2. use interior sill , cap #1, inset 3" extend 0, no apron, no wrap
3. uncheck, "has frame"
the sill disappears into the drywall return at the base of the window.
untitled 1 is an image from my chief of a window I was working on,
picture of window with sill is a quick google images search of drywall return with wood sill. My customer wants something like that without the dog-ears and the extension.
