Free Rotating Walls

Recommended Posts

Hi all...this may be a simple thing, but i can't find a solution.
 

I'm tracing an existing blueprint to make a 3D map, and the building has a lot of walls that are on an odd angle. However, when I try and draw a wall, it 'snaps' to a certain set of angles either too shallow or to wide of what i need.

 

Can't I unlock it and let me freely rotate the walls to the angle I need? Is it a preference that is set somewhere?

Hold the Control key down as you move the end of the wall into alignment. The Control key is the free motion key for moving things like cabinets too.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

I would suggest rotating the floor plan first, so that you get most of the walls at standard angles (you can have problems with wall connections if walls aren't truly parallel/perpendicular to one another) and then set the Wall Angle in the dialog itself (if you override with Control or turning off Angle Snaps, you can end up with crazy 90.1124984 angled wall nonsense that just causes a headache down the line).
