Hi Krotz,

TFP is an amazing product and you will be surprised with the different options and results!  :)
 
Regarding your questions:

We just had a major house renovation done, and our architect has provided me the files (in both Sketch and DWG) of our home.  I have tried importing both, but with no luck. 
Assuming that you have V20, you can import Sketchup files for 3D objects and DWG files for floorplans. Use => File => Import.

As my focus is on the landscaping and not the home design (and as I have already paid the architect a lot of money), can anyone advise how to do this or where I might find help?
I provide services and training for TFP users (since 2002) through my website Punchhepers
You can check the different options in the services page of my website.
Also you will find free tutorials and resources in this section of my website as well as in my Facebook page

Relatedly, I would like to become much more fluent in the software, and also welcome any advice on books or courses.
I provide one on one training courses (Via Skype), but in addition I wrote a series of eBook covering all the programs, OS and versions. Check all my eBooks in the eBooks page of my website.

I am new to this product (Mac iOS), and have always done landscape design with pencil and paper (it is a hobby, not my profession).  I am excited  about the possibilities, especially the 3D views.
To see nice results, don't forget to check my galleries

Hope this helps.

V17 - 2019 Looking for Help? / Re: soffit boxes above wall cabinets in kitchen
« Last post by Patricia G. on March 22, 2019, 08:06:55 AM »
Hi there,

Regarding your question:
I was able to make a wall 12" off the floor but can't figure out how to move the wall off the floor up to the top of the wall cabinets.
In order to set the wall on top of the cabinet => say the top elevation of your cabinet is = 93" => select the wall => go to the Object Elevation field (outlined in blue in the image attached) => set the elevation = 93"

An additional idea that works fine for soffits.
Floor tab => select the floor tool => create a floor outlining the shape of the soffit (pointed in red in the image attached) => set the thickness (outlined in green in the image attached) => set the elevation as described in the  previous example (outlined in blue in the image attached) => texture as desired.

See attached.

Hope this helps.

V12 - V16 Looking for Help? / Problem with project estimator
« Last post by djarchow on February 13, 2019, 07:40:25 PM »
I am running Turbfloorplan Pro v16. I am trying to use the Analyze tool to calculate my drywall needs for a remodel job but I don't get anything for drywall listed in the project estimate I know it used this before as I have some older project estimate files saved and they contain an estimate for the sheetrock. However even opening those old project files which previously generated the drywall estimate I get nothing.

I reached out to IMSI but they keep telling me to use the Power Tool Estimator which is in TFP 2017.

I can calculate the sheetrock quantities by hand but I know the tool did it before so it would be nice if it did again.

Thanks for any help.

V12 - V16 General Discussion / Personal Architect forum?
« Last post by dianedebuda on February 08, 2019, 03:35:14 PM »
Once again I'm contemplating redrawing all my TFP 8-15 stuff.  Looking at Personal Architect (again), but not finding forum support any more.  Only thing I'm seeing is a really lame "community" for Envisioneer.  Gone or moved?  Jack, Allan & the gang were such a help way back when & I'd hate to start with PA if there's no real place to ask dumb questions anymore.
