Improved operation of the “Divide wall or floor slab” and “Edit geometry” tools in plan views

In previous versions, difficulties could arise when using the “Divide wall or floor slab” and “Edit geometry” tools in plan views (“Building elements” section in the “Architecture” tab). This was because the tools were intended to be used in 3D. The new improvements allow these tools to be used in plan views in a simple and intuitive way.

  • Edit geometry of walls, curtain walls, louvres and railings in plan views
    As of version 2023.d, the “Edit geometry” tool works differently if it is used from a plan view or from a 3D view when being applied to a wall. In plan view the tool will prioritise the movement of the edges instead of the ends, allowing users to stretch the length of the elements in an easy way. 

  • Divide wall at a point
    When the “Divide wall or floor slab” tool is selected, it is now split into two options: “Divide wall or floor slab” and “Divide wall at a point”. With “Divide wall at a point”, a wall can be divided by a single point in plan views (but also in other types of views), which makes the program easier to use.
