How do I create a room or closet with a short, flat ceiling, within a larger room such as a closet with a plant shelf?
Creating a room which is not full height, in a larger room with a cathedral or vaulted ceiling can be accomplished using the shelf ceilingsetting within a rooms specification dialog.
To create a room with a short ceiling
- Select Build> Wall> Straight Interior Wall and click and drag to create walls for an interior room.
In this example, we've created a small closet.
- Once drawn, use the Select Objects tool to select the room and then click the Open Object edit button to open the Room Specification dialog.
- Click on the Structure panel, check the Shelf Ceiling box under the Ceiling category, and then set the Finished Ceiling (F) under the Relative Heights category to be a lower value of your choice.
- Click OK to close the dialog and take a 3D Full Camera view to see the result.
