  1. floridauk, yes these objects can be ungrouped with the "explode architectural block" tool. I'm using Suite 2024.
  2. Serviteur, if you are after the other roof planes to match at 35 deg. You can use the join roof planes tool. It will need to be repeated on the opposite side. See if that works.
  3. Glad you got it!!
  4. Casey, can you repost your updated plan. I suspect that perhaps you did not make a copy of the material and it's changing in places you don't want.
  5. Looks like you are on the right track – making copies of the materials and changing the angle. One additional step, is to adjust the offset of the material – I measured -2 3/8” and that worked (be sure to make a copy of the material so your other wall does not change). See the attached screen grabs.
  6. It could be your video card / driver. I would encourage you to check for driver updates, verify your system meets the specs and/or reach out to tech support
  7. The shelf ceiling option was added sometime after Home Designer 2016. Here’s the screen cap from the 2024 version.

    3D Viewer

    The Chief Architect 3D Viewer is 'view' only. If you want, download the free apple or android app and try it out to see how it works.
  9. Hi Fred, you will find Trusses in Home Designer Pro under the framing tool. Be sure to set your floor structure thickness to get your desired depth.
  10. Hi Jodie, the cabinet manufactures are available only in Chief Architect Premier (available monthly for $199). For RevaShelf, we have be asking for them to help us get an update – apparently they need to hear from more customers to help push them forward.
  11. Bo, can you post the plan and an image?
  12. With Suite & Architectural you can print most items a building dept. may require - but, you would need to see what they need. Pro has a construction document tool called Layouts that make the process easier. That product can be rented for $59/mo. Link product compare matrix. Give our sale dept. a call so we can help further.
  13. Matt, there's no automatic way for the attic wall to generate due to the two roof planes near a ceiling vault. It can easily be manually adjusted.
  14. If you need to post the plan, you could use a zip file or post a link on a cloud drive. It appeared in the plan view your ceiling plane was over the top of one of the walls.
