QUESTION

What are the different methods used to add a beam in Home Designer Pro?


ANSWER

Floor and Ceiling beams can be created with the framing tools.



Creating a floor/ceiling beam or a roof beam

  1. From the menu, select Build> Framing> Roof Beam  or Build> Framing> Floor/Ceiling Beam , depending on the type of beam that you want to create.


  2. Once you have selected the appropriate menu item, your mouse pointer will turn into a small cross and you will be able to click and drag in plan view to create the beam.

    The beams that you create in Home Designer Pro using this method will be visible in plan view, but may need to have the display of Framing in Display Options turned on to be visible in 3D camera views.
