Wall Issue

Postby reedvanr » February 23rd, 2018, 12:19 pm

It seems like there are only two options for walls. Story Walls, and Loft Walls (which according to the documention, need to be using on Loft levels). I wanted to know if there is a good way to build walls within the ground level that do not extend to the ceiling. I am mocking up a retail storefront and we are having to build an alcoved entry for ADA compliance (think of a adding a box at the front entrance of the store that juts into the retail space to inset the doorway, provding a more gradual ramp into the store). Right now, my drawing has the walls going up to the roofline, as opposed to giving me the option to create a lower ceiling to that alcove portion.

I added a Photoshopped mock-up of the store as well as a shot of the model (with the problem area circled).


Does anyone in here have any experience with this? Any ideas on solutions?

Thanks in Advance!

Reed

I would cut the top of the walls at the desired hight and make a roof with a building block or a roof. There a some ideas in the Live Home 3D forum.

You can cut the walls to the desired hight and shape with the opening rectangle or opening poly rectangle tools.

If this is what you want and you need assistance I would advise you to ask through the LiveHome 3 D forum.

Thanks so much for the response! Much appreciated. I actually decided to teach myself how to use SketchUp and was able to form it properly in there. I would still very much like to learn how to do it in Live Home 3D since I already bought the license and it's also far quicker to get the model into decent looking shape than in SketchUp.
