Wall between two ceiling planes

Recommended Posts

I have two different vaulted ceiling peaks in this plan and I need a wall to fill in between the ceiling planes where the vaults join (where the hole is in the image).

Just curious if there's any way to do this from the structure or roof tabs in the wall dbx? I've tried several different combinations of checkboxes (attic wall, roof cuts wall at bottom, stop at ceiling above, etc.), but I can't get the wall bottom to cut at the lower ceiling plane. Is it possible without editing the wall bottom in an elevation view or drawing a polyline solid instead of a wall?

I did make a really short video for you Steve.

 

I believe it's my most viewed video for some reason ...

Hmmm... I wonder if it works differently on a Mac than a PC... I open up the file you attached and I see this:

Draw in a wall on the attic level. Make it an Attic Wall and Roof Cuts Wall At Bottom.

 

Adjust the ceiling planes moving the lower ones under the wall and the upper ones butting up to it.

Got it to work. It appears to be very finicky though. The order that you adjust the ceiling planes seems to matter. 

 

Thanks Eric!

I opened the plan and found what you did -- a big gap. Finicky is a polite way to describe it :)

I hope now that I got it to work that it stays that way! Not overly optimistic yet :lol:

The Ceiling plane is just not snapped to the Invisible wall properly, if you pull the ceiling plane up ( as viewed) and let it resnap as you come back down,  it's all good.

 

I believe that was the fix found in the Thread Steve and Eric are talking about from a few months ago as I remember it.....

I suspect that once it looks OK, then a small manual change of the shape will make it retain it's shape.
