Best way to create partially open ceiling?

Recommended Posts

I just cannot remember, but I think I need to go to 2nd floor in 2D, select the floor and hit "open below", or something close to that effect.  I need only to make a cutout.  A cat walk type situation so will need to add a custom shape or size to this cutout.  The whole ceiling will NOT be open.

You're on the right track. Go to the story above, define the area to be open below by enclosing it with Walls or Room Dividers, then select the Room and define it as Open Below.

You may also draw a polyline, any shape as required, convert to Hole In Floor Platform, or Hole In Ceiling Platform, depending on where it's drawn and what you are after.

Thanks guys.  using a polyline works great.  Wish I could find a way to get the bounding box to snap to other geometry but I can make do.  I am sure there is a way but this is a rough draft anyway.
