Dear all,


I am planing to draw a futsal pitch for my village. Anyone have any idea on how to get the job done using CAX8? 

What I've done so far:

  1. Create a slab with it's dimensions (futsal's pitch dimension)
  2. Create terrain perimeter
  3. I tried to create pitch color line using "Rectangular Feature" under "Terrain" options, but  it creates thickness above that slab (see attach image). I have set down it's thickness, but the line disappear from the slab. Does anyone know how to draw/paint color line above that slab?

I'm new to CAX8, and sorry for my English.  :)

First, create a Terrain Perimeter.

Instead of using a slab for your pitch, use a Polyline Road. 

You can then use Road Stripes for your lines.

      This is something that's started after upgrading to X10.  Working with roof lines, line breaks are appearing on their own making it very difficult to join plane using #2 button.  And before, line breaks would automatically disappear when you straightened a line, now they don't.  I can't find a setting that determines this behavior.

      Every time I place dimensions, smaller dimensions will cover the line of the dimension with its white box. Is there a way to stop this from happening? Either moving the white box, disabling it, or moving the dimension slightly up?
      See the 3 1/2" and 5 1/2" dimensions in the attached picture.

      Wondering why I get this line showing in vector view where the brick on the gable wall meets the wall below?  The two walls are aligned...I checked this.  Is this typical...or is there something I can do about it?  Let me know if I need to post the plan to get a good answer to this question...
      Also...regarding Vector Views.  When I'm in a camera view with the Vector View setting...and I turn a layer on or off...the screen re-draw is kind of like a fades in or out depending on what I've done.  Is this normal behavior?  
     it correct that the vector view would be slower than standard view when scrolling on screen?

      I am trying to create the trim pieces in the image below in Chief Architect Premier X7  on a curved wall similar to the one in the image. I am having difficulty getting 3D polylines to work correctly. Any advice or quick tips?
