[Equest-users] DD Wizard multiple shell modeling issues

My first reflex was that you should specify exact coordinates, but it looks like you’ve already tried that… did you specify exact coordinates for ALL floors, not just the “problem” floor? When I build a model, I specify all floors at (0,0,Z), where obviously the z-coordinate will vary with level.

Hi group,
Thanks for the years of topic help and resources you have provided. This is my first time asking a question so here goes.... I'm doing some pretty simple modeling in the DD Wizard and have run across this issue with shells for the first time ever....
Whenever I add the 5th floor to this structure, it ALWAYS offsets a set distance even though I have "directly above 4th floor" selected. I have tried to redraw the floor numerous times, delete and re-add, specify exact coordinates, etc. Alas, it always depicts the floor offset. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
