Drawing Rectangles and Squares

With Architect 3D, you can draw items that will appear only in the 2D design window. If you choose, these shapes can be converted to a variety of features, for instance walls, stairways, pathways, edging, and more. Rectangles can also be used as label boxes for your printed plans or can be converted to walls or flooring.

Before you draw, you can choose how you want to draw the shape on the Properties pane in the right sidebar.
