Room Dimensions

Recommended Posts

post-3586-0-78206700-1437494862_thumb.pngI'm not understanding the room size vs. interior dimensions.  Attached is an example where interior dimensions are about 2" larger than what is shown as room size under the room label for the master bedroom (I'm doing an as-built).  What's going on here?

There are three layers for rooms:

 

  • Rooms, Standard Area is measured from center of interior walls to either the outside surface of exterior walls or exterior wall framing, depending on the 'Living Area to' setting in the Floor Defaults dialog. It is rounded to the nearest square foot or mm and does not include the area within bay, box and bow windows.
     
  • Rooms, Interior Area is measured from the inner surfaces of all the room's walls. It is rounded to the nearest square foot or mm and includes the area within bay, box and bow windows.
     
  • Rooms, Interior Dimensions is also measured from the inner surfaces of the room walls. It is rounded to the nearest inch or mm and does not include the area within bay, box and bow windows.

Dimensions normally dimension to the main layer of the wall (framing typically), ie they don't "see" drywall etc   but as you haven't filled in your Profile Sig. yet I can't advise if it is possible to reset your  Dimension "locate" options or not, but maybe possible under Defaults>Dimensions>Dimensions>Locate.

 

 

these might help:
