Railing/Wall Intersections

Recommended Posts

Anybody have any idea whats going on with the intersections of these deck railings and the exterior walls? Cant get the original default siding to go away at the intersection. Have tried editing default material and making adjustments with the wall layer extents tool.

did you try turning off the 1/2 post at the wall ?  in general I find Railings don't like ponywalls at times...

This very problem happens to me nearly everytime, so annoying.  Regardless of plan it happens.  Im so interested what the solutions to this issue will be.

If you are good at reproducing that issue I am sure one of the pros could figure out what is going on if you post a sample plan file.

Just put a corner cap on it. Other than that, it's got to be something with the wall layer extents. Or your railing is sitting just a bit further 'out' than the other wall maybe - make sure they're aligned? Sorry this does seem to be a glitchy item in chief

Thanks for advice. Eventually solved problem using wall specification/materials. Even though the lower exterior wall indicated  "no change" I was able to select it and change the material to the appropriate material in the plans material list.

Maybe use the wall corner edit tool?  Or if you painted this material on...then you may have to open the wall DBX and go to the material tab...click on the material and check the “use default material” box.

Good idea.  I just thought this was normal since it happens so much. For me I just accepted it as the way chief behaves with different wall types, I see this in bathroom design a lot with glass walls or walls with different thickness.

      I have watched the video of ChiefSkills by Steve Nestor, "DORMERS - Auto and Manual Types"
      Trying to use the idea there to cut my walls out of the living space. I think you called it "Cheek Walls".
      See the real picture and the angled ceiling. That is what I am trying to do.
      Any thoughts?

      Hi, I am a Revit user converting to Chief. 
      When working with angled walls in Chief, I have not been able to lock a wall from moving when changing dimensions on connecting walls. 
      I am familiar with how to use the directional tools to move an end of an object to adjust its dimensions.
      When angled walls are off-angle, I can waste significant time adjusting the lengths of the angled walls and still not achieve the dimensions I need for all connecting walls.
       
      The use case scenario is when I am drafting a plan using dimensions provided to me to create the build.  
      Of course, if I was creating a plan from scratch, I could probably avoid this situation.  
       
      Any suggestions?

      The wall shown is on the same plane with a false gable roof above only a portion. The wall from the interior will reflect the same ceiling height as the rest of the home, but from the front elevation I would like the wall to be taller to move my gable up. How can this be done in CA as the wall heights are dictated by the room's ceiling height?
