2.4 First Floor Walls

Exterior walls:

  1. Use the Wall: from curves command  to create the exterior walls of the house. Pick the same curve used to create the slab of the First floor. Use the right alignment.
  2. Select the 4 walls created and _move  them down (0.2m), until they are aligned with the bottom slab surface. This operation can be done also by changing the 4 walls elevation value, from the object properties dialog .
  3. Turn the slab control points on , and _move    them in order that the slab boundary is aligned with the interior wall faces.
  4. Change the wall height from the object properties dialog  .

Interior walls:

  1. Run the vaWall command  to create the internal walls. You can change the wall style, alignment, and the insertion options for each wall part without closing the command.
  2. Run the Wall: From curves or the Wall: Set Path command   for the curved walls. You need to create the curve first.

(TIP: Press Ctrl+Z key to undo a wall part without closing the command. The insertion of walls in that way works like the Rhino curves and polylines.)

Ramp fence walls:

  1. Isolate  the objects implied around the wall of the first floor ramp.
  2. Split the wall which is meant to be the ramp fence, with the _vaWallSplit command . Pick as the split point the corner of the intersection with the other wall.
  3. Now work from the Right Viewport, in Wireframe display mode. Create the two closed curves  that will be used to generate the solids to subtract from the ramp fence wall.
  4. _Extrude  the profile curves. Discard the curves afterwards.
  5. Run the _vaWallSubtractSolids command  to subtract the solids from the walls. (First, select the wall where you wish to subtract the solids, and then select the solid to subtract).
