ℹ️ Notes: 

  • Please keep in mind that you cannot use Partial or Partition walls to create a separate room within a room (i.e. use walls to form a closet or bathroom).
  • The best way to do this would be to create two separate rooms and then assemble them together. 

Partial Wall

  • A Partial Wall is added to an existing wall within a room and cannot be detached from the wall. 
  • This is recognized as an entirely new wall that can have wall objects such as doors and windows added to it. You can select whether the wall is load-bearing by going to the wall details
  • The height of the wall will match the height of the room's perimeter walls. It cannot be customized, nor can the depth.
  • A Partial Wall will render when the “elevation feature” is activated for the room’s walls.

Partition Walls 

  • Partition Walls are added as objects, not walls, from the object library within your floor plan.
  • Since the Partition Wall is an object, wall objects (doors, windows, etc.) cannot be added to it.
  • Partition Walls act as a visual barrier within your room that can be moved anywhere in the room.
  • You can change the depth and height of a Partition Wall.
