Step 3

Let’s do some basic modifications on the wall by using the pet palette.

First, if the wall tool is still activated, press Esc. Then hover over your cursor and click on the wall.

Move your cursor on the blue reference line. By default, Archicad will show you the midpoint of the wall. Snap the point and click on it.

Now you will see the pet palette which allows you to modify elements. Make sure that Insert New Node option is selected on the pet palette. Then hover your cursor back to the midpoint of the wall and click.

Your wall will be divided into two parts.
