Why when Drawing wall With Tool Polygon Surface External Wall Inside the polygon Placed.

Is there a way There are The default In the external Be.

Not pressing Space While drawing.

Because the radius is important for me.

It seems that there is indeed a problem with the wall least I didn't find the solution...

Personally, I do not find it very frustrating because I prefer to make first a geometric sketch that allows me a more accurate approach :

  1. First , I draw a polygon : Architecture > Model Line > Inscribed (or Circumscribed ) Polygon .
  2. Then: Architecture > Wall > Pick Lines....use TAB in order to select the entire polygon and hovering the mouse control how the wall is placed  (image 1 and 2) on the polygon edges....

But , as I said, this is my personal approach....

Yes, I agree with Constantin. I would draw a polygon with lines, first, then I would draw walls following that polygon as a guide. Not a big deal.
