Adding a Fourth Floor (Windows)
Updated over a week ago

Planner 5D currently supports up to three floors for your building designs. But don't let that limit your creative vision. With a clever workaround, you can simulate additional floors. Here's how to do it using the Planner 5D Windows app!

  1. Extending the Third Floor Height

    Begin by launching your project and navigating to the third floor. Click on the floor to select it, and then extend its wall height from the menu. For this example, we've made the third floor twice as high as the previous two.

  2. Creating a 'Magic Cube'

    Next, switch to 2D view mode and drag a 'Magic Cube' onto the plan. Adjust its dimensions to resemble a flat board.

    Importantly, set the 'Levitation' parameter to match the height of your additional floor. If you've set your third floor to be 400 cm high and you want the fourth floor to be at the same level, set the 'Levitation' parameter to 200 cm.

  3. Positioning Your Additional Floor

    Finally, place your edited 'Magic Cube' (or several, if necessary) to serve as the platform for your additional floor(s). They will create the illusion of an extra level in your building.

That's it! You've now expanded the capabilities of Planner 5D to create a multi-story building that exceeds the standard three floors. Continue with your interior design project by adding rooms, furniture, and other architectural elements.
