Create a balcony

Postby nelga » November 8th, 2015, 9:07 am

Hi there,

I've been struggling with this, and can't find the information in the forum or the guides.

I'm building a single level apartment with 2 balconies. See image below - Black is solid wall, white is the balcony opening (1m high wall).

I've tried custom floor+ceiling, and using shapes, and using openings - see notes below:

Custom floor + ceiling + wall panels: For some reason, when I give the wall panel a thickness, it doesn't render on all sides?!?!

Custom floor + ceiling + shapes: Shapes don't connect to go around corners... leaving my floorplan looking incorrect.

Openings: As the balcony opening goes around corners, the openings objects don't look good, as they leave a frame (even when frame is set to 0), and they also don't join together.

Is there some simple way to do this that i'm missing?

Draw a custom floor on the area where floor of your balcony should be. That would create a slab. Then you can either add walls around or "model" them with another thin custom floor rectangles with increased Elevation.
