The latest update to drawing.tool includes the Lock Wall Height Feature, which allows user to automatically set wall heights based on the elevation of the floor above. This feature is particularly helpful when creating a multi-level building in drawing.tool. It also allows for wall heights to be automatically adjusted when the level elevation is changed.
How to use the locking wall heights feature
Step 1: Set the appropriate level elevation
When setting up your project, set your Levels and their respective elevations in the Settings panel on the right hand side of the page.
Step 2: Identify the walls to unlock
It is important to keep in mind that as a default, the walls you draw will have the upper elevation height as the default wall height. As you draw your wall(s), you can select the walls that you would like to unlock, then unchecking the "Lock Height to Floor Above" box.
After unchecking the "Lock Height to Floor Above" box, you can adjust the wall height to the desired height.
Step 3: Conversely, identify the walls to lock
In reverse to detaching the wall height to the elevation, you can select the "unlocked" walls and check the "Lock Height to Floor Above" box. This will automatically overwrite the manually entered wall height to match the upper floor elevation.
Quick Tip: When you set all walls to be locked to the floor above, you can simply adjust wall heights by adjusting the elevation. This way, you do not need to select each wall one by one and adjust them manually.
