My model consists of two floors, 2.7m high for first floor and 2.7m for second floor. I added a pitch roof which messed the whole model up, so i deleted the roof data from the DDBROOF.NDX folder along with the ROOFPOLY.* and RLIGHTPOLY.* files. The model has become slightly better, but in 3D model view i can see straight down to the GF- so the GF has no ceiling. How do i add a ceiling to the GF. I also want to add a pitch roof with the middle edge elevated 2.25m, but i cant seem to get the datum height correct. Please can someone help me. im assuming the datum height is just 2.7+2.7=5.4m.
Good morning. Could you please confirm if you are using Hevacomp or OpenBuildings Energy Simulator?

Hi Shane i am using Hevacomp
Hi Shane, i am using Hevacomp- design database
Many thanks for clarifying. While we wouldn't always recommend manually deleting the data files within the project folder, hopefully your model should be ok. To add the ceiling to the G floor you would need to go to Roofs / Floors and go through Set Up Intermediate Floors and Ceilings, as below:
So would this current setting include adding a false ceiling to the gf and ff. The reason why i want to add a ceiling to the FF is because when i create a roof and select 'set up exposed roofs' with the FF as the 'floor immediately below this roof', the ff room heights change which i dont want.
