Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating floors, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…Now that we've created the walls and…roof of our house, it's time to create the floors.…Like previous components, we'll create three new layers, one for…each floor structure, as well as one for the garage floor.…First we'll go to the Organization pallet.…Under Design layers, we're going to create a new design layer called FF 1,…for finished floor 1.…We'll click OK, and set the elevation to zero.…And click OK.…We need this design layer to be just above Floor one for…the moment while we're drafting.…
To do this, I'm going to hover over the numbers here.…As I get to the edge here, you can see that I get a little cursor here that…allows me to drag and drop my FF 1 just above floor one.…I'll make sure that these are the only two layers currently visible.…And click OK.…We can use the 2D Polygon tool and…the Closed Lasso tool to draw shape just around the outside of these objects.…The only object we didn't get was the garage, as that will have its own floor.…
Now, we can go up to AEC, click Floor and…we'll set the bottom C at negative 12 and the thickness for 12 and click OK.…
