joining of intersecting walls

Recommended Posts

I am using Chief Architect X7. Why don't all the walls join up as a solid when I try to join an internal wall perpendicular to a point where two external walls meet? There seems to be a gap extending from the base of the 200mm wide internal wall where it meets the 300mm wide external walls. I am tracing over a pdf but it seems to be the same when free-drawing also. See attached image.

Please find attached - I have marked the area that the issue is occurring with a revision cloud, towards the bottom left corner of the plan.

I opened plan and it looks fine, plan view and 3d.

This is what I see in X7:

You can sort-of fix it using the Edit Wall Layer Intersections tool:

...however you see that the drywall intersection is still wonky (I turned off Walls, Main Layer Only to show this).

 

If you upgrade to X8, things get a little better:

rlackore - Although I followed your advice using the 'edit wall layer intersections tool' and turned off walls - main layer only - I still see that triangular gap. Is it possible for you to post your file so I can see exactly how you did it. It's driving me mad!

      I've used CA for years and AutoCAD since 1985. (Yeah I'm old).
      In Florida we do a lot of Block house plans. (CMU) 8x16x8 concrete blocks.
      Other than manually placing block patterns. Does anyone have an easy way to do wall fill patterns to show the ACTUAL CMU BLOCK Pattern in plan view. 
      It would be great if it actually placed filled cells required for all window/door openings and corners. Any suggestions? 
       
      Thanks

      Help! How do I connect the walls to the roof?

    • By SNestor
      I think I have an issue with my "template" plan as I cannot get walls located above invisible walls to build correctly.  The wall in the attached plan is where the ceiling transitions from 12' tall to a room with a 9' tall ceiling.  I attempted the same drawing in a stock Chief template plan and everything worked like it's supposed to...so, I gather I have a setting in my template plan that is goofy...
       

      Thanks!

      Having an issue with wall framing height. Never had this before and have recently upgraded to X11, so wondering if it's operatior error or the program, etc. Anyway here goes:
       

       
      This shows exactly what happens. The wall framing does not go up to support the plate height.
       
      Have checked the following to no avail:
       Verified ceiling height was accurate
       Wall is marked 'baloon through ceiling above' so we're not talking about a hidden attic wall messing this up - the wall actually does go up to the rafter - just the framing does not.
       
      Any insights?
