Importing and converting 2D CAD data into a usable plan, tracing over an image or PDF document, or creating an as-built mask as just a few of the processes that can be used to help create a remodel plan.
Once you've imported a 2D CAD file, you can lock the lines and trace over it to create a 3D model.
Import a photograph of blueprints in to Chief Architect in order to trace over them to create a plan.
One way to show the as-built condition on a remodel project is to create an "As-Built Mask" CAD block of the existing structure and underlay it on the remodel project.
Control object display by creating custom layers and place objects on them.
Represent existing, demo, and new walls by creating and using differing wall types.
Use Invisible Walls to create separate areas with room definition.
Use layer sets for framing to indicate which is existing and new in a remodel condition.
A Materials List is created for items within the closed polyline on the current floor.
