How can I create new wall types?
Chief Architect has a variety of wall types that you can readily use in any of your plans. You also have the ability to create your own custom wall types.
Depending on the new wall type you wish to create, you may be able to save time by selecting a similar preexisting wall type from the drop-down list at the top of the Wall Type Definitions dialog. A preview diagram of the selected wall type appears in the dialog. With the similar wall type selected, click the Copy button at the top of the dialog. You may wish to rename this copy.
Make sure that all framing or structural layers of your wall are in the Main Layers section of your wall dialog.
While placing other layers in the Main layers section is possible and may be preferable in certain rare situations, in most cases you will encounter problems with wall connections and framing.
