How to Create a Reflected Ceiling Floor Plan

A Reflected Ceiling Plan (RCP) is a drawing of a room or building, looking down at the interior ceiling. Making RCP involves many different reflected ceiling plan symbols that can be managed using ConceptDraw PRO. Using ConceptDraw PRO you can design the reflected ceiling floor plan that shows the location of light fixtures and any other items that may be suspended from the ceiling. You can share your ceiling design ideas by saving drawings as graphics files, or printing them. Read more
The vector stencils library Registers, drills and diffusers contains 47 symbols of rectangular, circular, linear and troffer air handling inlet/outlet components.
Use the design elements library Registers, drills and diffusers to draw reflected ceiling plans (RCP) and HVAC layout floor plans using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"A ceiling is an overhead interior surface that covers the upper limit of a room. It is not generally considered a structural element, but a finished surface concealing the underside of the floor or roof structure above.
Ceilings are classified according to their appearance or construction. A cathedral ceiling is any tall ceiling area similar to those in a church. A dropped ceiling is one in which the finished surface is constructed anywhere from a few inches to several feet below the structure above it. This may be done for aesthetic purposes, such as achieving a desirable ceiling height; or practical purposes such as providing a space for HVAC or piping. An inverse of this would be a raised floor. A concave or barrel shaped ceiling is curved or rounded, usually for visual or acoustical value, while a coffered ceiling is divided into a grid of recessed square or octagonal panels, also called a "lacunar ceiling". A cove ceiling uses a curved plaster transition between wall and ceiling; it is named for cove molding, a molding with a concave curve." [Ceiling. Wikipedia]

"A reflected ceiling plan (RCP) is a drawing, which shows the items that are located on the ceiling of a room or space. It is referred to as a reflected ceiling plan since it is drawn to display a view of the ceiling as if it was reflected onto a mirror on the floor. This way the reflected ceiling plan has the same orientation as the floor plan associated with it. It is as if the ceiling was see-through and you could see right through it to the floor below. Architects and interior designers draw reflected ceiling plans when designing spaces." [wikihow.com/Read-a-Reflected-Ceiling-Plan]
