  1. I would like to edit this slab so that its southern edge aligns with the northern edge of the wall. When I enter the edit boundary mode, I'm presented with only the boundary and no other geometry. How are you supposed to achieve what I am trying to do?

  2. The VW tutorial I saw on making floor plans showed the viewports as wireframe. However doing so leaves both faces of the wall visible where a door is. If I change the viewport to hidden line, then the doors and windows disappear. How do we make a conventional floor plan where the cut plane is at 4' AFF?

    It depends on how fancy you need to be.

     

    If you only need the look, then insert a door with the proper dimensions and format it as an Opening or Cased Opening. Then draw the "door" as a separate piece.

    So I've inputted a door with the correct dimensions, and I've drawn a door slab. But I don't see how to format the door into an opening.

     

    BTW the first image below does not belong in this thread but I don't see how to delete it. Please see the second image.

    OIP stands for Object Info Palette.

     

    (fun tip - if an acronym is used regularly here and has a dotted line beneath it, hovering over it with your cursor will display what it stands for.)

    Thx. I clicked on it instead which showed nothing.

    Another possibility... and not uncommon (for me!) was to draw the initial polygon and extrude without checking the OIP to verify if it is "closed". I now always double check.

    OIP?


  6. Tada! The 2-D rectangle I used to make this roof was still in the model when I invoked the command. So naturally the walls were attaching to it. Now that I've deleted the 2-D rectangle and re-issued the command, the walls do their thing quite nicely.

  7. Okay, I see that there is a roof height parameter during the creation of the roof. For some reason it was automatically set to -8'. I was not able to find way to edit the the value of that parameter and ended up deleting the roof and re-creating. Is there a way to edit that parameter without deleting and re-creating the roof?
