Showing architectual floor plan wall tool and use as roads on a map and ribbons - Mac on OS-X

Architectural Walls, Windows and Doors:

The Technical tools palette has a full compliment of Wall tools. You can specify the thickness and fill characteristics. They are drawn with a single stroke. There are interactive controls for defining the end form of the elements. Both orthogonal and a free form that can be drawn at angles are provided.

Auto - Mate:

The wall elements will automatically snap together and "mate-up" to form proper corner shapes of your choosing. When snapped, they form integrated shapes. If drawn in a clock-wise sequence, dimensions can be attached and assigned to report interior or exterior dimensions.

As Roads:

These two-walled graphics are used to represent road on maps where more detail is desired. The auto-snapping represents intersections perfectly. They are not limited with respect to number of approaching roads to an intersection or their angle; and all is automatic.


Tools are provided to draw 2-dimensional flat ribbons that follow any Bezier master path. These elements are quite useful for many drawing activities such as curved roads for maps or general illustration tasks. The join and cap forms are completely under user control, this makes these elements a generalized "path of a path" with outline and fill.

Gradients - Along or Across:

Multi-color gradient fills may be applied to walls and ribbons. Notice the blue and yellow ribbon in the screen shot, it has a gradient applied across the ribbon. Gradients may be applied along a wall or ribbon as well (not shown).

Mate 4-inch walls to 6-inch walls:

The auto snap/mate function has provisions for full manual over-ride of a connection. This provides a simple method to place and mate two walls of different thickness such as when a 6 inch exterior wall joins a 4 inch interior eleemt.

Inside and Outside Dimensions:

The wall graphic elements work with EazyDraw's dimensioning tools to provide control over exact dimension locations with respect to the interior or exterior of the represented wall. By drawing in a clock-wise direction (each wall has an indicaed start and end orientation) the ID / OD dimensioing is automatic.

Plumbing, Pipes and Fluid Flow Diagrams:

The wall graphic elements may be used to represent pipes. The auto-snap/mate capability makes it easy to represent a detailed piping diagram. The Additions Pack has a hydraulic / fluid flow library that is useful for these applications.

Interactive or Numeric Controls:

Most of the specifying parameters for walls and ribbons are available on-screen as interactive controls. The Walls parameter palette (lower right in the screen shot) is available for inspection or specification of wall parameters with popup menus and numeric entry fields.
