Floor heights

Recommended Posts

Until now I’ve drawn houses where the floor heights were all the same on each level. Now I am trying to draw a house where the upper floor height is consistent throughout but the lower floor has three different areas each 6" lower that the first. My approach to this was to set one floor height for the lower floor and then using the structure tab adjust each area floor height to the desired height. However each time I do so all the floor heights change. Obviously I’m missing something very basic here.

I’ve searched the help videos but have not been able to find one that addresses

this problem.  Any suggestions? I'm using X6 Premier

Try deleting your foundation then set your floor heights by selecting each room you want to change then rebuild your foundation.

I agree , you need to set a standard floor height and then go for the variations raising upwards.

I find that the best way is to usually work from the top down.

Work out your upper floor height and set every room to that.

Then move down to the lower floor and set room heights as needed.

 

I don't fully understand what you mean by

 

However each time I do so all the floor heights change.

 

 

Every floor height changes......, the lower floor heights..., upper floor heights, .......all rooms....., some rooms.......?

This is the answer.
