Drawing Sidewalks, Pathways, and Driveways

In Architect 3D, you can design sidewalks, pathways, and driveways, using the same tool. Once a pathway is drawn, you can customize it by applying any material to suit your needs.

By default, the pathway is drawn using a curved style. You can change this, as well as the width, on the Properties pane in the right sidebar before or after you draw.

Pathways are drawn with a default material, which you can change by applying a different material.
