pCon.planner_walls_08

pCon.planner offers a number of objects that can be inserted into walls. Clicking on the downward pointing arrow in the Room Elements group, Start tab which is circled in red in the screenshot on the left will open a menu, giving access to the various Wall Elements.

By following the arrow which is marked in red in the left-hand screenshot, you will reach the Room Settings dialog. In it you can make default settings for Height and Width of doors and windows and for the Thickness and Height of walls.

There are also hatch settings here for walls and settings for pipework.

It is also possible to add wall elements such as doors, windows or overhead doors interactively. By this is meant that the position, width and means of opening can be set precisely for the wall elements even at the wall creation stage.

To enable the function, check Enhanced Element Placement in the Room Elements group.

The following Door example will demonstrate how the enhanced placement process differs from the conventional method.
