Drawing walls using interior dims

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

New to CA.

 

How do I alter my settings to be able to type in my interior dimension that I desire, rather than the exterior one?

Here is two room house I quickly sketched.  I selected the interior wall.  Look at the picture.

 

And fill out your signature (if you are a Chief Premium user) so we know.  If using Home Designer or something else, find the appropriate forum to post your question.

You can also set the defaults for the dimensions to see both wall sides (or what ever you want it to see).

If doing Remodel Work and measuring existing Homes to wall Surfaces eg Drywall , not Framing you can set your Dimension defaults to locate Surfaces instead of the Wall Dimension Layer (Framing Layer usually).

In the General Wall Defaults (Alt-Q) you could also switch the Resize about Option to Main Layer Inside (Framing) or Inner Surface temporarily while laying out walls.
