Drawing a 10-sided polygon floorplan

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

Wondering if anyone has any advice on drawing a 10-sided floorplan? I'm having trouble getting the 2nd and 3rd walls to line up properly. I notice there is an auto-polygon maker for decks, but i'm needing a house plan, not a deck.

 

I can draw a 10-sided poly in cad lines, but again, when I try to use the exterior wall build it won't line up.

 

Anyone have a 10-sided foundation plan?

 

Any advice would be great, many thanks!!

After drawing the CAD lines, what is the problem lining the walls up. 


 


Draw wall. Use the Parallel tool to make it parallel with the CAD line. Use point to point move to move it to the CAD line.

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.

Depending upon which software title you have, you may be able to simply use the polygon-deck tool which will create a perfect polygon deck which you can then convert the railing walls to whatever walls you wish. That IS the easiest way to draw a polygon house but not all titles have that feature found under railing draw tools. What do you have?
