You can create a drawing surface around windows in 2020 Design.
Complete the following steps to draw surfaces around windows.
- Open the elevation area that has windows and remove all display settings that may clutter your surface drawing.
- In the "Work Area" toolbar, make sure the "Item Snap" and "Ortho Mode" buttons are activated.
- Select "Surface" from the "ITEMS" ribbon.
- Begin drawing at the bottom right corner of the window/cut-out and follow the diagram below to draw the remaining lines of the surface area.
Note: It is very important to make sure the bottom lines are exactly inline.
If drawn correctly, the surface will only tile around the window/cut-out as shown below.
