- [Narrator] In this video I'm going to talk about…a few of the useful properties of walls.…I want to talk specifically about location lines…and also look a little bit at wall type properties.…Now to help us do that, we also need to understand…the concept of levels of detail.…So, I've got this really simple box here…and I'm going to go to this floor plan called…"Detail Levels" and that's going to zoom in…on the upper left corner of that little box…and show us the intersection of the two walls.…Even though these walls are drawn…very simply here in this view,…it actually turns out that these walls are comprised of…several internal layers of material.…
So to see those internal layers,…you have to actually change the setting…in the view, so let's start with that.…On the view control bar at the bottom…of the screen, next to the scale popup…there's a small little white square.…The white square indicates that…we're in course level of detail.…When you're in course level of detail it only shows…the overall outline of the object, walls in this case.…
