I want to create an opening or a hole to a lower floor, such as in a loft, balcony, mezzanine or elevator shaft situation, but I don't know how to get rid of the floor in this area. How do I accomplish this task?
Creating an open below room
- Define the area you wish to create an opening in by using any combination of the various wall tools, such as a Straight Railing .
If you don't want any walls or railings, use an invisible wall instead.
- Using the Select Objects tool, select the room, then click on the Open Object edit button to display the Room Specification dialog.
- On the General tab select Open Below from the Room Type drop down menu.
- Click on the OK button, and you should now be able to view an open area in a 3D view.
