Give Start Point:
We will now create the outer wall profile to the dimensions shown below.
We need to place 'point 1' toward the top-left of the drawing area. After you have clicked this point you will notice that Draft it Architectural draws a dynamic wall from the point indicated to the cursor. Move the cursor down below 'point 1' toward 'point 2'.
You will notice that the Ribbon has changed to display a Command Specific Ribbon for drawing walls. The wall ribbon group has two options, these are 'Justification' and 'External Side'. Ensure that the 'Justification' is set to 'Right' and 'External Side' is set to 'Right'.
Parallel to the wall the word 'Outside' is displayed to clearly show which is the wall external face. It is important that the external face of adjoining walls match to ensure that the corners are tidied up correctly. The easiest wall to draw orthogonal walls is to use Arrow Key Input. Press the down arrow key , type '10500' and press . The first wall section is drawn.
Press the keyboard right arrow key , type '4500' and press .
You can see how easy it is to create the walls. Continue as follows.
