You cannot change just the edge. You will need to cover it with something -- a room molding polyline might work well.

Is your open below room using defaults? I don't ever have to patch that, it should be automatic for you. It seems to me that there is a setting wrong

I have never needed to do this.

 

Post the plan and Eric will probably give you a much better answer.

This is done with setting the railing to "Generate On Low Platform" and moving the Floor finish to the Floor Structure.  Not really sure what is going on with the end wall unless that is a railing wall.  Post your plan and someone will have a go and fix it.

I disagree with this answer also.  If this was the case.....  what defines the material at the edge?  It is defined by the wall type finish.  I wonder what wall type he is using.  

 

If this is the answer, I would be learning something new.  I wish he would post the plan.

Scott,  Here is the default wall type I think.  Please clarify what it is you are disagreeing with.  The edge material is the drywall that is defined by the wall type but it only seems to go up to the bottom of the floor finish layer or the top of the structure layer.  Is there a better solution ?

Im not at office to check.  The wall type is correct but I have a feeling that is not the wall type he is using.  Did you check it yet?

After looking at picture closer,  I remember seeing this Anamoly a long time ago.  I forgot the actual circumstance but maybe Chop’s is the solution I did not know of back then.

Scott, It looks to me like the French default railing wall.

The interesting thing that it does do is wrap the floor finish over the underlay but unfortunately this is not the desired look this time.

There you go,  that is what I thought it would be.  Again,  I am going off the picture and I swear,  I have 1 pair of glasses and two types of contact lenses to choose from and I still can’t see too well.  But if I choose the correct contact lens set,  I can see my golf ball travel more than 175 yards.

Sink a few more balls and maybe when you get back to the office you will be all rested up and it will make sense.

The solid rail at the end is just a 3D Box drawn over a rail.

The floor finish is going to the edge of the floor platform because the room is defined by rails, and that's what floor finishes do with rails.

If you want the platform edge to come up to the top of the floor finish you need to delete the floor finish from Floor Finish and add it to Floor Structure.

Here is another option to deal with the edge at the half wall without using the box.  You will alway see the edge of floor finish under the rail unless you take Eric's or dChop's suggestion.

      I'm Running Chief X8, MS Windows 10 on SurfacePro3. 
       
      Building three stories over a basement.  Trying to create the Elevator Shaft. Elevator Shaft... 4 framed walls each floor to create a shaft for the elevator.  Walls are Aligned with walls below. I have stair ways where Open Below rooms eliminate the Floor and Framing like they should.  I have an atrium on floor 2 overlooking to floor 1, created with a railing and room Open Below... this works too (no floor).    
      But on each floor where I box in the Elevator Shaft with 4 walls, create the room, designate it as "Open Below" there is still framing and decking inside the Elevator Shaft.  I have "Rebuilt floors and Ceilings" and "Rebuilt Framing"  does nothing. 
       
      I have turned on and off Auto Framing. Deleted and Recreated walls Created the Shaft bottom floor first... and top floor first.  
      One thing I have noticed is that this plan has created a Center Line running front to back in the plan and the front wall of the elevator shaft is sometimes split when I draw it.
       
      Any Ideas on how to get rid of the floor inside the Elevator Shaft?
       
      Thanks,

      Hello Everyone,
       
      I have a dilemma that I can't seem to find an answer to. I an trying to close in a stairwell from above but leave the area underneath it open. I am stumped. 
      The picture below shows what I am trying to do.

      I have created a staircase going from the 1st floor to the 2nd. All seems to line up correctly, but when on the 2nd floor, the stairs do not appear even though the room type has sucessfully changed to Open Below.
      Thanks in advance for the help.

      I am working on a 4 story home that has a curved central staircase.  After a few hours of work in another area, I noticed one of the 'open below' rooms for the staircase is no longer drawing open.  It draws with the same flooring as the floor that surrounds it.  It still highlights as a separate room, so there isn't a break in the open below room perimeter railings.  I've checked the floor/ceiling/floor above/ceiling below/etc. heights and they match the surrounding room.  I've checked the roof over/ceiling over/floor under check boxes and they match the other open below rooms that are drawing correctly.  I've turned the room type to a hallway, and then back to open below to see if I could reset it or something.  Nothing has worked.  
       
      I'm sure this is something really stupid.  Come on, guys, what am I missing?  Thank you.
