Stretch floor plan


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to stretch or shrink a floor plan (as in the autocad "stretch" command?)  Trying to remove 8" in width from a house.

A forum search for stretch and a bit of reading will locate an answer, and save others from repeating themselves.

Not a problem.  I did use the term stretch and only found the term as it related to "objects", not floor plans.  I'll figure it out.

First page of search results. Also other helpful info in that thread you may not know about.

I would use the EDIT AREA (ALL FLOORS) tool to take the 8" section cut out first, then use the same tool to select the area to be moved and point to point move that section into place. Remember though, the AutoCAD stretch tool, from what I can remember works well, but it's only moving 2D lines, in Chief you are moving 3D parametric objects so there will likely be a little housecleaning to do.
