Curved walls

When creating a floor plan for a property, sadly not all walls are straight, and you may come across some curved walls.

Split level stairs

When drawing a Floor plan for a property, there are often cases where there are a set of stairs that go between two rooms, on the same floor.  In Metropix we call this a Split Level staircase.

L shape room

When creating a floor plan for a property, there are very few that will have just square or rectangular rooms. There will be many that are L shaped, and this is incredibly easy to create with Metropix.

When creating a floor plan for a property, sadly not all walls are straight, and you may come across some curved walls. An example of this would be in a bay window. There is an option to draw this very easily and accurately using Metropix.

Firstly draw your room with straight walls. Once you are happy with this, go to the Menu at the top left of the Metropix page. Click on “Edit” and a drop down menu will appear. Click the “Draw Curved Wall” option. A red square will appear on your cursor. Click and hold your mouse on the wall at the point you would like to start, and drag your mouse to create the curve, (this will appear quite uneven as you are drawing). When you get to the end point release the mouse and a smooth curved wall will magically appear.

You can also add windows to the curved wall, just click and drag the symbol from the menu, and resize as required.

The training video above demonstrates this very clearly. The curved wall option can also be used to create circular rooms.
