Fixture boundaries

Recommended Posts

Can the boundary for a fixture be turned off?

Example, I want to place a tub closer to a toilet than code allows. The software has set a minimum distance that another object can be placed next to a toilet (around 7" if I measured correctly). I need to over ride that in my design (do not worry all you code addicts, it is for a RV, not a permanent residence)

Or you can select the item, click "transform/replicate" and then move the object the desired distance along the axis it needs to be moved on.

I would not recommend using Control to override movement as it's completely free movement. Better to use one of the precision movement tools.

Thanx to LawB10, Rookie65, and Solver. That is exactly what I needed. I wanted to override the limitation by placing the toilet 3" closer to the tub in a tiny house I am designing (and actually started to build already). Time has come to start getting fixtures placed and daughter decided she wanted a different tub than she originally chose, and of course the new tub is 5" longer than the original.
