no drywall at the end of an open wall

Recommended Posts

 

Never had a problem with this before. If I draw a wall that ends at the front of the shower, the end wall shows a stud with no drywall. I really don't want to have to draw a polyline solid, rename it on the layer, and paint it. Frustrating because I didn't have this problem just last week.

If the drywall is part of the main layer of the wall that could possibly happen but there is limited information here for anything more than a guess.

Posting your plan file is the best way to get good answers.

I removed the paint layer from the wall definition and the drywall filled in.

Your problem is in your wall definition.  Chief only wraps the outermost layer around the end of your wall.  Your outermost layer is 0" thick so that's what you're seeing.

The wall's outside layer wraps the end (the paint with zero thickness in this case), not the drywall (unless it is the outside layer). So either 1) make the drywall the outside layer and change the drywall color as desired or 2) give the paint layer a 1/32" thickness.

 

[EDIT] What they said.

 

I think Chief should fix this so that everything wraps the main layer.

So that kinda blows the theory of not painting walls then doesn't it.  What is the proper procedure ?  As most drywallers do not leave exposed studs for the painters.

I would think that you would have to give the drywall a color??? My two cents....

Lots of ways to handle it...

 

You can paint the walls (could be done with "Blend Colors With Materials" toggled off or on depending on the situation).  I do this all the time.  When I hear people tell new Chiefers "DON'T DO THIS" I think they're doing a disservice.  Better to teach people how to use the tools properly than to tell them not to use them at all.

 

You can create a new "Drywall" or "Siding" material for each color you'll be using.  This new material can then be applied using paint can, or by changing material in room definition, or by changing material in wall definition, or by changing material in wall type definition...all of which have their upsides and downsides.  Again, you can optionally simply paint your material with "Blend" toggled on which will automatically create a new material for you. 

 

You can use a Wall Material Region.

 

You can apply a Wall Covering.

 

In the end I don't think there is any right answer.  Just learn how the tools work, and then decide what works best for you and your particular situation.

I make a new material -- copy Drywall, change it's color, then use it in the wall definition.

 

Really I just paint the drywall, but I suspect a new material is the proper way.

Thanks guys, That is a real help and it looks like if people want to use the wall definition for paint layers the suggestion Charles made has good merit.

Agreed...at least as an option.

 

Like so many other good suggestions, it needs to actually be posted in a usable form in the suggestion forum or sent in to Chief if we want Chief to even consider it.  Otherwise, I can pretty well guarantee its never ever gonna happen.

As is, using a thinner material to wrap the end seems to cause the framing to be off.

 

May, or may not be important.

 

As Charles suggested -- this needs to work better.

      Issue in X12 when using break tool to adjust wall for an extension over a column.
      Bare wall end fir stud and overhead framing stud can be seen in wall section instead of drywall.
       
      See attached file/pic.
       
      I do not believe soffit is viable solution as I am seeing that soffits will not frame.
      So framing is important.

      Many thanks to Solver as he addressed this issue and resolved it for my needs by applying different wall types to the wall area drawing. I posted my original files as reference and Solver's solution file (1868954996_MHD_sampletemplateplanSolutionWallEnds).
      And the solution frames out too as can be seen in file with camera Perspective Floor & Perspective Framing views.

      Is it possible to create a wall type as attached in the image?. This is for a roof top patio partition wall. Could some one guide me please.

      Hello, I am wondering why is the garage foundation wall does not show/appear in the basement (level 0) floor where there is a door above on the first floor? (Plan attached). More over the location I have clouded shows the wall clearly, why it is not displaying at the other locations?
