1. Changing the height of a storey How to change the height of all masses, rooms, walls, etc in a project Amritha Krishnan

Storeys are Snaptrude's method of organizing level or floor information. For example Ground Floor or Level 1 is Storey 1 in Snaptrude. Each Storey has a base height, which is set automatically, and a floor to floor height associated with it.

Click on the Storeys tab in the right panel. Scroll to the storey you want to change the height of.

In the textbox next to the Storey, type in the new storey height. The storey height is updated and all the rooms on the storey are updated to the new height.

Minimum possible storey height is 2100 mm, i.e., storey height cannot be reduced to less than 2100 mm.

In BIM mode, updating storey height increases the height of all the unedited walls, without affecting doors, windows, any massing or elevation objects or slab and flooring thicknesses.

The rooms/ spaces that are not updated on changing storey height are:

  • Spaces with predefined heights like balconies, terraces, site, road, decks, water bodies retain their predefined heights on changing the storey height.

  • Rooms that have been edited vertically, i.e., edit face, edge or vertex in the vertical direction, or have been extruded or scaled in the vertical direction retain their edited geometry.

Note that updating storey heights may update the storey assignments of some mezzanine rooms.
