Draw larger building?

Recommended Posts

I'm using Home Designer Architect on a Mac.  I want to draw a floor plan for a commercial building on a lot size 200' x300'.  How do I scale the drawing window to fit the larger footprint?

You can zoom in or out as you need. The native child-window-planview is at a real world scale (1' = 1') so you only need to scale down when printing to PDF or paper so your drawing will fit on the target paper size, Your main limitation in Architectural is that you are limited to three floors , the dimensions (x and y) can be as large as your PC-Mac can parse per second.

I have designed commercial buildings with over 1,000,000 square feet per floor, so I know this can be done. The more detail (3D faces) a plan contains determines the "load" on a computer per unit of time in terms of camera views etc.
