Wall Elevations

Create wall elevation views with Cross-Section and Wall Elevation camera tools — including automatic Room Elevations. Add dimensions and callout text. You can design in 2D and 3D at the same time, such as plan view with perspective or elevation view.

Kitchen Cabinets

Choose from thousands of design objects in the built-in Library Catalog. Create or import your own custom Library items. Download specific Manufacturer and Bonus Catalogs from our website; windows, doors, cabinets, colors, materials, textures, and more are available in the premium SSA Catalogs.

Kitchen and Bath Tools

Create any shape or style of cabinet complete with accessories. Once you have created a cabinet, grouping of cabinets, or even an entire room, you can save it as an architectural block into to the Library for future use — a great time saving feature!

3D BIM Catalog

Create any style of cabinet with powerful Cabinet Designer tools. Select from a Library of thousands of door, drawer, colors, and styles. Choose specific manufacturer catalogs in the premium SSA Catalogs. Create shaped cabinets, custom countertops, backsplashes, and cabinet accessories.

Wavy Island Sink

Cabinets automatically generate countertops — this layer can be on/off for your desired view. Manual countertop tools allow you to design any custom shape. In addition, you can create custom backsplashes. Use the Color Chooser or Material Painter to apply custom tiles from a photo.

Kitchen Appliances

Choose from a wide variety of appliances — both name-brand and generic. Easily change the sizes and colors to match your client's needs. For Manufacturer appliances, specify models and colors. Download from our website or the manufacturer's for very accurate 3D renderings and construction drawings.

Fixtures and Furnishings

Place a wide variety of interior and exterior items – including chairs, tables, sofas, sinks, or import your own. Resize, change colors and materials for your client's exact needs. Create photo realistic renderings or artistic renderings such as Technical Illustration or Water Color views.

Cabinet Schedule

Schedule of Materials — generate cabinet, door, window, electrical, appliance, and room schedules in a spreadsheet format. The schedules automatically update as you change the design model. Use Schedule labels to illustrate in your technical drawings.

Bath Design Cross Section

Create automatic interior room elevations or use the Elevation Camera for cross-sections. Toggle color on/off, add dimensions, change line weights, and callout text. Any changes you make to an Elevation view are automatically linked and synchronized to the model.

NKBA Certified

Chief Architect is a member of the National Kitchen and Bath Association. The software follows the NKBA design and style guidelines and can be used to take the NKBA exams for professional certification.

Bathroom Floor Plan

Dimensions can be used to locate centers, casings, openings, electrical, wall framing or surfaces. You can define your dimension defaults to include the type and style of the dimension such as text height, font, arrow styles and number format.

3D Kitchen and Bath Design

You can generate a variety of 3D views to aid in your design or visualization process. All 3D views can be saved as an image you can show to clients. You can record all your 3D camera movements as a virtual tour to help you sell your projects.
