Can't get a doorway to sit flush

Recommended Posts

I cannot get a doorway with no casing to sit flush against a perpendicular wall. It has no casing yet will not get closer than 5" from the wall to the left. Why is this?

set your casing to 0 and you can move it closer to the wall

You don’t actually HAVE TO do that.  You can also go into your Plan Defaults and check “Ignore Casing...”

It is silly to have to turn off the casing and change the number, I really don't like to use the ignore the casing option, or you will see the casing imbedded into the wall in floor view. I always like it the way it's built, you can always widen the hallways to accommodate whatever casing you might have. Your contractors will scream at you if it's not correct.. If your plan calls for 6" or larger casing, you need to plan for that. Real world conditions rules. I realize in the condition you stated it doesn't matter b/c it's an opening without any casing.

Kal could also, break the wall in plan view, and pull the left section up in cross section/elevation view

to achieve the look

Turning the Casing Off via the Checkbox can cause visual issues in 3D views particularly with Garage doors where it often shows as the Jamb "flashing" as you move the camera , so it is better to set it's width and depth to 0" ( I think it resets to 1/16th auto.) to avoid this.

 

Like Michael,  I always use the Ignore Casing Setting , you just need to realize it is on.... or turn it off if the Job mandates Full Casings everywhere.

What about having the base molding within the doorway? Is there an easier way to do this than using a custom molding line?

Perhaps your wall(s) isn't quite aligned with the Doorway?  it seems to work for me okay ...Post your plan and someone will look otherwise...

      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?

      Hello, I often time need to draw just one room not the entire Floorplan. In these situations the doorways leading in and out of the rooms show the landscape outside. How can I remove the landscape shown around a room from different angles without having to draw temporary walls around the rooms entry points. 
       
      For example the arch opening in this screenshot is supposed to lead to another room but I am only focused on this space. Do I have to draw the entire space or can I edit what is seen from that doorway?
