Construction: How to Use Push/Pull?

1. Select Push/Pull.

2. Click on a modeling surface.

This modeling surface can be drawn by yourself with lines or rectangles, or it can be a surface on the existing modeling.

3. Select stretch direction or enter stretch length.

Notes:

When you input the exact distance in the lower left corner, the positive number means stretching in the direction of the mouse; the negative number means stretching in the opposite direction of the mouse.

Must know:

Q: Why can’t I push or pull some walls?

A: Only architectural surfaces can be modified in Construction. Structural surfaces cannot be modified.

Q: What are structural surfaces? 

A: The walls, ceilings, and floors that are created automatically when you draw a floor plan. All surfaces that appear when you first enter Construction are structural surfaces.

Q: What are architectural surfaces?

A: The surfaces that you draw by using the Line (L), Rect (R), and Push/Pull tools.

The differences between an architectural surface and a structural surface are that you cannot push, pull, loft, move, or delete a structural surface. And you cannot set a structural surface as the loft path. However, these operations are supported for architectural surfaces.

Both architectural surfaces and structural surfaces support material paving and advanced material editing.

Note: You cannot modify floor plans or create holes for windows and doors in Construction.
