Placing a Shower

Showers are placed in the same manner as bath tubs. In addition to associative dimensioning and wall tracking, as you place a shower, Architect 3D automatically adds annotation to your design once the shower is placed. If you don’t find the exact sized shower you are looking for, simply place a shower that is similar in size, then adjust the shower properties to the exact size you want for your home design. As you drag along a wall, the dimension lines indicate the distance from the center of the shower to the nearest wall end or plumbing fixture. When the tool is active you can choose a shower style from the Properties tab in the right sidebar. You can also change the style after the shower has been placed by selecting the shower in your drawing and choosing a different style.
