Partial walls seem to be flawed!

Recommended Posts

The half wall/ railing seems to be flawed! I'm trying to build an office or structure with shorter walls than the building around it like an enclosed office with a lower ceiling within a large warehouse. #1 I have found that you must remove the ceiling on one of the structures or it creates a halo wall over the room....."not that big of a deal except they don't tell you this!!!!!!!!  #2 when you remove one of the ceilings it works, but then it will only allow you to place door opening, no garage door regular door etc... This is a MAJOR issue..& so far tech support sends me to the VERY poorly & technically  incorrect worded half/wall/railing partial wall instructions. (they tell you to build a wall then put a railing on it

    Does anyone half a solution? I may send the software back over this issue... tech support seems to be not listening to the problem.

This post may help. 

 

This should be trivial, but due to the design of the program it isn't.

KBIRD...Its not Loft or mezzanine......which would work for a (raised office).  I'm trying to build an enclosed office or structure with shorter walls & ceiling. like an enclosed office with a lower ceiling within a large warehouse. Or a paint booth within a body shop..the problem. is when you try to make a wall shorter than the rest it appears not let you use doors or both ceilings. Their are ton of application you simply cannot do with this software..It's a MAJOR FLAW.

Incidentally, what a ridiculous amount of easily forgettable knowledge, (if not used every single day) one must memorize & carry around just to build a simple wall with minor changes using this software.

I have done exactly what you want many times using the Mezzanine technique for warehouses , you don't have you use the space above for anything or , put stairs etc up there that's a design choice , and done that way you get all the framing etc too. , it's no different than building a two storey house ...very easy once you do it once...

 

here's a quick plan for you...
