Dear Ms. G.,
Working on principle that my idea was correct, I returned to the 2nd quick start plan. Making sure all floors were visible, I chose floor2=> select all and then mouse moved it over Floor1 as it should have been. Then Floor3 => select all, mouse move the entire floor to overly the right side of Floor2. A bit of tweaking followed than and it was as hoped!!

So I believe that I have figured out how to generate a spit-level and will now move on to adding the windows etc this proejct was in hopes that the 3D would help my friend understand his house better--he wishes to remodel the kitchen.

thank you for sticking with me.

best,

Jack

Hi Jack,

Glad to know that you have now the desired configuration  :)

I conclude that it is essential to do the quick-start using  the floors as templates for subsequent drawing.
Would you agree with this?
It is one method, but it is not essential. You can move the levels as desired. Check these 2 examples

All the best,

Dear Ms. G,
I decided to try a 3 room test for a split-level dwelling.
Floor1 = garage, elevation = 0"
Floor2 = living room, elevation = 111"
Floor3 = bedroom, elevation = 147" (over none)

By using quick start, I placed Floor2 over the visible lines of Floor1 and I joined Floor3 to the right wall of Floor2 (I was able to see the visible lines= all floors visible)\
This generated a proper 3D configuration.

I conclude that it is essential to do the quick-start using  the floors as templates for subsequent drawing.
Would you agree with this?
Best wishes,
Jack

Hi Jack,

I can clearly see inconsistencies with the walls elevations, levels and heights => I'd suggest that you edit the walls and verify the properties. Also, edit the levels and verify the properties.

Dear Ms. G.,
I am either doing something wrong or my version of the program does not respond as it should. I show the screen shot of the three floors as generated in the 2D program--this shows Floor3 in its relationship to the floors below (the latter in light blue). The 3D rendering shows amost exactly that relationship.
Check list:
This is a new version of the project started using Quick Start, drawing three separate floors.
Elevations set OK: Floor1 =>0"; Floor2 => 111"; Floor3 => 147"

Is there perhaps a step here that I need to take, for otherwise I get what is shown in the screen shots.

Warm wishes,

Jack

Jack,

Don't worry about this. If you set the correct elevations, the program does the levels' management.

Hi Patricia,
Did that, but still wondering about the floor relationships.
Should I have created a "grid zero" point that would carry from floor to floor so the floor 1 and floor two would start at the same place at the "upper left hand corner?"
If that works, then I imagine I would have to discover where the "upper left hand corner" of floor 3 would connect to the "upper right hand corenr" of floor two. It seems to me that somehow there has to be a registration guide--like when etchings are made in different colors. 

I cannot find where that is set or how.

Again, thank you for dragging me through the molasses.

Bst,

Jack

You need to set the correct elevations and base elevations, otherwise you are stacking floors.

Go to Floor 3 => Floor button => Edit Floor => Floor base Elevation => Floor is above "None" (outlined in red in the image attached).
Set elevation at 147". See image attached.
