How to draw floors and walls efficiently inside Sketchup

The surfaces of the majority of floors and walls are flat in nature and sketchup is a useful tool to model them maintaining straight edges and flat faces.

Generally, the professional likes to produce two types of architectural models in SketchUp - Your process for modeling floors and walls totally depend on the type of model that is going to be produced:

  • Exterior: An exterior model of a building mainly refers to a blank shell and the users should not be scared of interior walls, rooms, or furniture. This type of model is a simple presentation for newbie sketchup users.
  • Interior: An interior model of a building is considerably more problematical as compared to an exterior-only one as handling interior wall thicknesses, floor heights, ceilings, and furnishings requires several modeling competency.

Everything in SketchUp is created with super-flat faces (without having thickness). So the only method to model a wall as for example 10 inches thick is to apply two faces alongside and 10 inches spaced out. For models wherein the wall thicknesses will be applied that is interior models - one has to apply this two-face approach.

It is very simple to generate exterior models as single faces can be applied to symbolize walls.

Generally, the newbie sketchup users make the mistake like trying an inside-outside model at once. At the initial stage, it becomes very difficult to create a model having both the interior and the exterior of a building simultaneously.

As an alternative, the sketchup users can make two individual models to obtain both interior and exterior views. If the user requires a combination model afterward, the model can be created in a short span of time to make either of the first two.
