Open space between slab porch and balcony above.

HD Arch 2021

 

I have a building with a slab porch in front (posts, no rails) and a balcony of the same size above it (posts with rails). When rendered in 3d the space between the porch ceiling and the balcony floor, which should be covered with siding, is empty, revealing empty space between the two floors of the building.

 

How do I get this empty space to have siding?

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.

Set the room as a "deck" instead of a balcony.  

You will then need to go back to the porch room below, and recheck the default ceiling finish.

Presuming that you don't want the deck support beam showing on the porch ceiling, open the deck room, and set the beam material to misc>no material.

Thanks Eric! I used your suggestions and have it looking better now.

 

I still have an issue though. The balcony floor is resolving to only 4 inches thick. The upstairs floor is 12 5/8". I can't find a way to make the balcony floor thicker.

If I change it to framing/lumber it appears to make no difference.

 

You need to change the materials and thickness.

 

Try changing the Balcony to Porch, close the dialog, then set it back to Balcony.
