Create 2D plan views with rendered 3D characteristics to post in a portfolio, on a website or in a brochure by overlaying a floor plan on top of a 3d model.
Images of plants can be imported into Chief Architect and modified to display in your camera views just as the plant images contained in our library catalogs.
The ability to export a 3D model for use in the new Chief Architect 3D Viewer mobile app has been added to the 18.3 build of Chief Architect X8, allowing you to share 3D models of your plans with colleagues and clients. To ensure that you are running the most current version of Chief Architect software, select Help> Download Program Updates from the program menu.
Since mobile devices have different capabilities, it is wise to simplify your design prior to exporting your Chief Architect plans for use in the 3D Viewer.
You can share an image of your plan file with others or use the image for your website or printed media by using the Export Image tools
There isn't a way to convert a digital image into a 3D model in Chief Architect; however, you can use an image of a floor plan as a template to trace over.
