wall thickness greater than 0,5m in constructions

Postby NoraMakait » Thu Jul 09, 2015 8:08 am

I'm trying to modell the constructions of different walls. Some of these walls are thicker than 0,5m. I'm using the layer option for that. When the wall is thicker than 0,5m there is allways an error saying the wall should not be thicker than 0,5m.
Does anyone know were this is coming from and how this maximal thickness of constructions can be changed?

In DesignBuilder v4.2 the work around for the 0.5m restriction is to assign 2 layers of the same material to the construction.
Just to let you know that this limitation has been remove from v4.5 betas and will be available on the next v4.5 release.

In DesignBuider, the partition wall will always split the thickness equally to each side.
