Hello guys, I'm tryin' to figure out the best approach for this:

I have a house with multiple levels in the first floor in different areas. The living room it's at 0.00, most of the first floor at 15 centimeters above, and the study it's at 30 centimeters above.

Should I create a level for each one?, if so, should I separate each wall, so each one sits in their own corresponding level? (and maintaining visual consistency in the wall-floor edges)

Should I use the offset parameter to control the levels, without creating extra level views?

Should I create all the walls in the lowest level, then clean all intersections with the different floor levels.

I started creating all walls at level 0.00, then creating the different floor levels (without creating plan views for each one, only for the lowest) but I don't know if that's correct because in 3d view, visually, the edge where the union wall-floors above 0.00 meet, appears invisible (which probably could be solved manually joining floor-walls, but is kind of a pain)

 

thanks in advance

 

Best regards

Hi renatolemus,

Modeling it as you are building it.

I see no harm in creating a level for each one. Yes, model it as you would build it. Use top and bottom offsets as required.

I always add the levels so I have an easy plane to pick to host objects.  Just doing element offsets works unless you want to move a level a little, then you have to change items individually.  I would not add new views.

 

I would think interior walls that sit on raised levels would be hosted by that level but your exterior walls would all host off one level.

Thanks for your quick reply. Sitting each wall in their corresponding level sounds a good idea, to keep all relationships between elements. For exterior walls it might be  possible to use the offset parameter in the wall base, or creating some kind of small retaining wall just for the exteriors.

thanks again

For the exterior wall if it steps, I would just sketch the profile and sketch the top of the foundation wall as well.
