Insert Photometric Solid: Shape

The Insert Photometric Solid: Shape command is used to insert a light-obstruction object that is closed, but not rectangular. If the Starting Elevation is 0, any footcandle levels inside the rectangle will not be printed. Most photometric solids will be inserted using this command. Most buildings and other objects on your plans will require an irregular shape.
