"Open Below" creates a gap in the walls

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am new to Chief Architect and I am working with version X8.

 

When I try to create a room of type "Open Below", I get a strange result: The walls between the two floors have a gap.

 

This first image shows the room that I want to convert to "Open Below":

After selecting "Open Below", the floor disappears (as expected), but it leaves a gap in the walls:

How can I close this gap? I already tried to modify the floor height of this room (Room Specification -> Structure), but that did not work.

 

Regards,

El

Post a plan.

 

But looks like you have an extra hidden wall on the 2nd floor.

Just move your Plasterboard wall layers so they are not part of the Main Layer.  Heighlight and move in the DBX  (Dialogue Box) as shown below and you should be good.

Also check your cross sections when you frame and you may find that you will also want to move your "OSB" out of the main layer so the floor frames correctly.
