Interior Wall Snaps

Recommended Posts

I am working on a shower in a master bathroom and used a glass wall for the division between the bath and shower.  I would like to inset the glass approx. 4" from the main walls without the walls snapping together and creating a corner.  The yellow interior wall on the left side will not move beyond the glass.  I have tried the wall option through wall end or start and it still snaps to create a corner.  I would like to line up the exterior wall with the interior and maintain the glass shower wall.  Is there a way to turn off or control the wall snapping distance?

Thanks all!

One method is to give the interior wall another wall to snap to. Draw an invisible wall 4" away and drag the interior wall up to it:

NO,  the way I deal with this is to let the walls snap as they will and then I work around the leftover results (like rlackore suggested). I sometimes use soffits, slabs and poly-line solids to do what walls, by default, will not do, just to get my work done. I am not picky as long as it does not take too long and looks good when I am done.

Hi David, I agree and wish I would have just stuck something in there instead of wasting 1/2 day looking up training videos and searching for answers.  I could also put a partition in and add the base molding.  I just thought there was an easy way to stop the two walls from connecting.

Thanks,

Tom

Many comments on the forum concerning this "problem." I believe the general fix is to use a perpendicular room divider at the framed wall to give it something to stop at, like Robert suggested and just turn that layer off.

I sometimes will break the wall at the shower wall add an extension wall and reverse the wall layers and it sticks.

The best solution is not to use CA's Glass Wall , it has ALWAYS had issues , at least for me , for years I have just used Glass Shower Doors etc I have made from Soffits, if in a hurry or made a symbol if needed. Once you have this once add it to your Library and in the Future a couple of clicks gives you a nice Shower Glass Door.

I often use p-solids disguised as walls for this type of situation. No snapping issues. Of course you forgo the materials and framing but it’s a small sacrifice. 

 

I wish Chief had a “don’t snap” tolerance we could adjust for walls. Or even a radio button to turn it off all together for select walls. 

Would also be nice to be able to “peel” back individual wall layers, but I guess this is better suited for a post in the suggestions category.

Much agreed with the option of no snap.

Seems like a simple radio button options would be the easiest solution.
