Capping end of wall step?

Recommended Posts

I have a wall that steps in thickness from 9" to 4½", with a door opening at the step.

How do I clad the end of the step in the wall? (see attached)

 

TiA,

That looks like a bit of a sticky situation.  Have you tried the Edit Wall Layer Intersections tool ? 597231a6e1531_EditWallLayerIntersections.jpg.e1761126ab4d8c5c490e4933ea230d5f.jpg

That didn't help :-(

 

[Edit]

I fixed it by drawing a 4½" wall across the end of the 9" wall.

If you would like to post the plan file I would be glad to take a look and see if I can find a solution.

Ok it looks like that will work for you at least in 3D.

Not sure why you have to do that unless your door opening is oversize?

Mark,  It looks like you built a double wall.  Not the same as Bryan's.  But nice reproduction.;)

Mark,

If I had the door opening just short of the wall step, the rendering is correct, but part of the 4½" wall shows at the opening (a jog in the base).

If the door is tight to the wall step, there is no 4½" wall showing (base is straight), but the drywall is missing on the end of the 9" wall beyond the 4½" wall.

 

It looks like your mock up is two 4½" walls together, whereas mine is a single thick wall.

This is likely where my error is, as the is wall will be 2x4½" or block.

I try reworking it and see later (no time now), then report back.

 

Thanks again for the input.

Sorry, I missed that- some funny things happen with that.
