Hi there,
Drawing a new plan with walls of different width, I do not find the way to enlarge one wall instead of all of them.
When I click on one wall and select its width, the four walls of the room are changed. Crying
Clue appreciated!
Thanks.

Hi there,

There are 2 situations:
1 - Exterior walls => in Punch, the exterior walls must be an enclosed perimeter. In this enclosed perimeter, the walls share the thickness.
2 - Interior walls => if you created an enclosed perimeter (exterior walls), you can add the interior walls using different thickness, as you can see in this image

Walls with different thickness.jpg (34kb) downloaded 0 time(s).

Important concepts:
- if you have two walls and you join them using the arrows of your keyboard, you are connecting the walls => this means that the walls are together but they are independent => they don't share the properties and work as 2 separated walls.
- if you have two walls and you join them using the mouse, you are merging the walls => this means that the walls are fused => they share the properties (including thickness) and they work as only one wall.

Note that exterior walls should be fused.

Hope this helps.

As usual, you made my day.
Merci Patricia Cool

(an enhancement for v21 would be to allow external walls to have different width)

You're welcome! Smile

As I know that you have my eBook, you can also check the topic "Joining the walls" (page 44)

Let's see what happens with V21 ...Wink
