Create 3D wall flaps on one or more sides of a room.
The Add Side tool is found under the Room tab of the Ribbon Bar. It will not be available for use until one or more room sides are selected.

- Select at least one side of a room by left-clicking a handle (). Multiple sides may be selected by holding down the Ctrl key and left-clicking additional handles.
- Click on the Add Side button.
- In the "Create Edge" window that appears, define the parameters for the new wall flap(s) and then click the OK button.
