    For chimneys I have a one layer brick wall. Simple yet so effective.

    Also consider ceiling planes. They are very useful for a negatively sloped wall.

    wall legends

    Wilson, I have no idea if this will fix your problem or not. This happened when I was using X11 and here was the answer from tech support. I thought it was fixed, so your problem may be unrelated. Doug Doug Norton Tuesday, Jul 16, 2019 - 09:06 AM PDT When inserting a wall schedule a strange vertical line appears when including 2d symbols for a default 8" concrete stem wall. How can I fix this? Support Answer - Grant Swenson Wednesday, Jul 17, 2019 - 02:02 PM PDT Doug, Our development team is still looking into how to properly correct the issue. However, we have found that if you turn off Slabs in your layer Display Options, the line will no longer appear in your schedule. Keep it mind that turning off the Slabs display in that layer set will also have it not show up in any other views using that layer set. Grant Chief Architect Technical Support

    Connecting different pitched roofs

    The advantage of using auto build for roofs is that it gets all the base lines in place, and the facia heights aligned. Pitch and intersections can always be easily changed to get what you want. Sometimes intersections are a bit of a problem, but with a little work it can all be readily solved. The auto build is, from my experience, always a great place to start.
