Wall Mounted Lighting

Recommended Posts

I am presently building a new home. I am in the process of designing a couple rooms so that the contractor has a kind of visual. I have a lot of log work. I have some log columns I would like to hang some wall mounted lights on but is not allowing me to hang them on anything but a wall. Are there any suggestions?

1) Please fill out your Signature -- see below.




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 Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion

The program needs a wall for wall mounted electrical.


Define a new wall type that looks like this.




The name is not important. Enter 1/512 for the thickness -- the program will show it as 0.


This will create an invisible wall you can use anywhere you need electrical on something that's not a wall.


I also use this as a Room Divider, which is why it's named RD. It works better than the Room Divider wall type that is built in.
