Changing shape of a mass using Add Vertex
In this section learn how to edit the shape of a mass in plan view by adding new vertices that can be moved to create new corners.
Add vertex makes it incredibly easy to add layers to detail to your design. Adding a vertex on the edge of one room will also add it to the adjacent room that shares the edge. Editing any of the resultant colinear edges will create a new perpendicular edge between them.
For example, you can split a wall in two or more segments, moving just one portion to create a niche along the wall.
To add a vertex to a mass, go to the Design tab and click on the add vertex icon. Place your cursor on the face you want to split, then click once, the edges will be split. You can then use the edit tool (shortcut "P") to push or pull the split vertex as needed.
