Room Definition Line or Single Line Wall

Recommended Posts

hi,

 

i drawn the Step Landing (Porch) Room  with the Invisble wall.

 

if you turn off the Invisible Wall layer, there no room definition.

 

how can i show that Room in plan view with some kind for single line?

 

with having draw in using the CAD Line

I think the closest you can get in an instance like that would be to open those invisible walls and change the thickness to 1/16".

if you do that (Invisble Wall Layer On). ALL the Room Divider with invisble would show in Plan.

By the way, you shouldn't lose your room definition simply by turning off those invisible walls.  I think you might be mistaken.  It works for me.  You could also just do that and draw a polyline around that room if you wanted.

yes, i know that you dont lose the Rm Def. lines. 

what i meant is that....if it's turned off, theres no Line defn. for the Porch area.

 

yes, you're right. just manually draw Rectangle using CAD Line. thats what i was trying to avoid to have to do.

Putting those walls on their own layer is probably your best bet then in my opinion.

Absolutely agree. It is a perfect solution.

My 2 cents - i'd just select room & make room a polyline, one click and done!

just off topic, but another question about Invisible Wall type vs. Room Divider  Wall Type

 

 

why is that the Room Divider Wall Type (single line) keep automatically changing the a Interior 3 1/2" Wall (invisible double line)

I won't claim to understand this issue all that well as I haven't studied it much so I could be wrong, but I believe that happens in any situation where the new room definition requires any kind of structural change.  I believe the only place a zero width room divider really works is where all you want to change is the finish flooring.
