In order to measure Full-height backsplash, a folder with a Vertical plane must be created for each wall area to be measured.
Each vertical section of full-height backsplash to be measured will need its own folder.
After measuring the countertop area:
- Click on the ‘Backsplash’ button on the measurement ribbon
- Deselect the ‘Add backsplash to countertop’ section, and select the ‘Create Full-Height Layer (full-height) section. Also, name your backsplash
- First, click on the left side point of the Full-Height backsplash area. You may also measure this point with the Flexijet by aiming and capturing a point.
- Now, click on the right side point of the Full-Height backsplash area. You may also measure this point with the Flexijet by aiming and capturing a point
- You have now created your Full-height backsplash folder. You must select that folder from the Project Explorer by clicking on it before proceeding to measure that area. Newly measured elements will always be created within the currently active folder.
- When measuring full-height backsplash, be sure to measure to the edges of the surface to be measured. For example, to measure the top edge of the Full-height at the underside of the cabinets, it is typical to measure on the underside of the cabinets themselves. Follow the same principles as measuring a countertop, but on the Vertical plane.
- To create additional Full-Height backsplash folders, simply select the ‘Countertop’ or other corresponding folder and again use the ‘backsplash’ button to create another vertical folder and follow the prompts to define the plane by either clicking or measuring the corresponding left and right points.
In order to insert plugs and other cutout elements:
- Plug cutouts may be inserted directly as installation symbols, or drawn manually.
- In order to insert a plug using a pre-loaded cutout shape in an installation symbol, open the ‘Installation symbols’ dialog, select the appropriate symbol, and click the desired point or aim Flexijet and measure a point.
- You may also measure the electrical box using the ‘Rectangle over 2 points’ command, accessible from the screen of the Flexijet, or measure the centre screw with the ‘point’ function, or measure between the upper and lower screw using the ‘multiple lines’ function, and draw in the exact shape of the plug cutouts at a later opportunity.
In order to see your project in 3D, simply click on the Root folder (often called ‘Kitchen’) in the Project Explorer.
To transfer points (e.g. elevation of underside of a cabinet, height position of plugs, etc) between folders:
- In the folder you are editing, click the checkbox next to another folder to turn on its visibility. In the image below, the ‘Backpslash’ folder is active, while the ‘Countertop folder elements are visible (though viewed from the front view).
- Ensure that 2D snap mode is active. Press F9 or click the 2D button at the bottom right corner of the application to toggle between 2D and 3D snap modes. This will ensure that any points selected will be transferred to the active plane.
- Select any points to draw as start or end points of lines.
