Placing and Configuring the Rooms
Even though two of the three room are 10’ x 10’, you can never place multiple instances of a room unless everything about the room and the contents within will always be identical. Not likely, so just place one instance for each room needed at all times. Notice that all of the rooms I just placed were renamed (look in the browser). Remember, renaming in the browser does not change the file name, and that changing file names is a very bad idea unless you know exactly what you are doing.
Those that work primarily with kitchens will not have as many rooms –in most cases it will be just one –but may have a butler’s pantry, wine room, broom closet, or other attached space that needs to be included. The next room, Exam 4 has a closet. I want the closet to be part of Exam 4, so I will place the closet a tad different than the main rooms. First, I placed and configured the room. No big deal, just a 10’ x 10’ room with two doors…
As you can see in the image of the browser to the right, the freshly renamed Exam 4 Closet (BOM set to Reference) is sitting at the top level (a direct child of the main assembly).
I want the room to be part of Exam 4, so I expand Exam 4, so I expand Exam 4 in the browser…
Now it’s just a matter of dragging the closet assembly into the Exam 4 assembly. Watch for the black underline, then release the mouse button.
You will get a restructure warning, which is fine. Click Yes to dismiss it.
