Placing an Image on a Wall

Last modified: May 16, 2016

By using the feature Place image on wall you can add an image to a wall placed in the drawing area, or even use the component without attaching it to a wall. The image will be visible in your 3D view. You access the feature in the Accessories field on the Wall drawing component tab.

The Place image on wall tool

To place an image on a wall, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Wall drawing component tab.
  2. Click the Place image on wall icon in the Accessories field.
  3. Move the mouse pointer to the 2D- or 3D view drawing area. A black rectangle follows.
  4. Click the rectangle in place.
  5. Double click the image box that appears on the wall. A dialog box appears where you browse to desired image.
  6. When the image is placed on the wall, click it. A green input box appears where you can make desired settings for the image.

  • The Image on wall tool supports transparency for image formats that support this (.GIF and .PNG).
  • Drag n’ dropping a supported image file directly onto the 3D view will automatically turn it into an Image on wall object.
