In the Build menu, go to the Walls and Partitions tab.
You have 3 types of walls at your disposal:
- Walls, with their default thickness of 30 cm, are used to represent load-bearing walls.
- Partitions, with their default thickness of 7 cm, are used to represent thinner walls.
- Invisible partitions are used to close an open room or create a sub-space within an existing room.
Invisible partitions are useful for
- modeling an open room
An invisible partition allows you to close an open room.
From then on:
- in 2D, the room has a white background, and it can be named to display its area.
- in 2D, the room has a floor and a ceiling.
- creating a sub-space within an existing room that may have a different floor covering or height.
Step-by-step to draw an invisible partition:
Like walls, to create an invisible partition, enter the Build menu:
- 1/ Click on the Invisible Partition icon.
A cursor in the shape of "+" will appear in the drawing area to the right of the menu.
- 2/ Place the first point.
The beginning of the invisible partition is created. Be sure to stay within the grid (workspace).
- 3/ Indicate a direction using your mouse.
Guides are present to help you draw vertical and horizontal partitions.
- 4/ Place the next point by clicking a second time.
You can chain several limits in succession.
Tip: Don't worry about drawing each limit with the correct length. Draw the general shape of your project, and you can then digitally edit the length of each wall by clicking on its measurement.
- 5/ Confirm the drawing.
To exit wall editing mode:
- press the ESCAPE key
- or double-click after placing your last point
- or right-click after placing your last point.
# Reminder: Plan origin: Draw your project around the red square: it represents the origin of your plan, the center of the modeling space. > More information
# Reminder: Plan boundaries: Draw your project within the grid, which represents the available modeling space. > More information
# Rounded partitions are not available in the tool. You can find workarounds here.
# Outer boundaries:
To delimit your outdoor spaces, use
- garden boundaries
- driveway boundaries
- terrace boundaries.
These outer boundaries create spaces without ceilings.
Edit Invisible Partitions
The invisible partitions you have drawn are editable: you can
- adjust their length
- move: by selecting them and dragging them in 2D with the mouse or numerically.
