I would like to know how to create a plot plan in Chief Architect. How is this accomplished?
A plot plan is essentially a map of a property's legal description. This article describes how to create an accurate plot plan by inputting lines, arcs and set backs using the CAD tools available in Chief Architect.
If you have received plot plan information from a surveyor, keep in mind that any given line can be described in two ways using Quadrant Bearings, and not all surveyors will describe the lines of a given plot in the same direction (ie, clockwise or counterclockwise). If the lines are not described in the same direction, your result will not be a closed polyline.
A curved property line can also be created by entering data in the New Arc dialog. See your Chief Architect Reference Manual for more information.
