In the ideCAD, some of the objects are located on the floor of the story, some on the ceiling of the story, and some on both the floor and ceiling. In the ideCAD, information entries in the story plan windows are made with a floor-ceiling logic. Accordingly, each story plan window has a ceiling and a floor.
View from top to bottom; In other words, the architectural view is called the architectural plan mode in ideCAD.
Wall, door-window, foundation objects etc. such objects are located on the floor. Therefore, these objects can only be drawn in Architectural Plan Mode .
Axis, column etc. objects can be drawn in either mode. Because these objects are available on both the ceiling and the floor.
When the architectural mode is active, the static object command icons (the beam, slab, etc.) are clicked, the ideCAD switches to the structural plan mode.
You can do it by pressing the Shift + Tab key on the keyboard or clicking the Structural Design Mode icon from the quick access toolbar .
