#### Transcript of OrthoGraph Architect - Floating Islands

OrthoGraph room structure
- Floating Islands You can add connected rooms in OrthoGraph simply by sketching their walls, and tapping inside them.

Sometimes it is not possible, as the rooms might not connected, they are inside each other, or it is simply more handy/precise to use this method.

In this case we have to create another room in the room structure, keeping in mind the concept of:

"Always work on the room where you are standing in!" Adding the 2nd Room - Floating Islands Create and measure the floor plan of the second room as learned before in the 1st steps prezi. Drawing the 2nd Room Don't forget to place and measure doors & windows like you did in the first room. Doors in the 2nd room When you are done with the second room, then assign it to the first one through the door. Select the Assign Doors feature to select both sides of the same door. Assigning Rooms Entering wall thickness, the two rooms will be attached to each-other.

This is named "Floating Islands", another important concept of OrthoGraph. Setting Wall Thickness There are walls measured from both rooms of the same wall. Identify them simply by using the Assign Walls function. OrthoGraph will replace the two walls with one with correct, measured thickness. This will be useful also by the further use of the drawings in CAD applications. Assign Wall Sides Repeat the procedure as long as you are ready with measuring the floor plan of the building. Create the Full Floor Plan There are many-many more features of the system like CAD integration to DWG, SketchUp or ArchiCAD, supporting foot/inch or meter etc.
