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.
Discover efficient approaches to creating multiple design options from a common base plan.
Use a CAD mask or the Reference Display to display both As-Built and Remodel plans in a single view.
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.
The as-built basement project covers times on using Chief Architect to gather as-built measurements, tools used in the field, measuring walls, their thicknesses and openings, as well as a review of vaulted ceilings and site study.
