Shower drain

Recommended Posts

Using Pro: I have a shower floor but the drains from the Library don't integrate with the floor (can see the floor through the grating). The drain just sits on the floor. How to fix this?

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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 keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

My suggestion is  - it works for me as a work-around;

And as I say - its just 'my' work around as a solution that I have used.

 firstly -  Label the room as 'open below'; this removes the default floor; the draw a CAD circle the size & where you want it;

Then insert two floor slabs that centre around the hole you want; Mine are off centre for this demo;

Add a few points or 'breaks' to enable making  a round hole, or half a round hole on each slab edge;

add your finish; add your floor waste plumbing object; ( i did not do this bit, again for clarity )

Then- take a break.

Happy hole cutting.

It would be much simpler to just add a vertical cylinder (same size as the drain), .25" height, painted black.  Then slide it under the drain.

Where did you find the drain itself? I'm using HD Pro as well but can't find the drain in the library....
