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 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,

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

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.,
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
