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'm having issues getting two joining external walls to have different materials and meet on the external corner ( pebble dash and brick) . I've checked my intersections and their mitered correctly and if i select ' through end/start' in structural for the wall it just shifts the issue to the adjoining wall. Please help?

      When I place a window/door/etc. on a wall and type in the dimensions, sometimes it will move the edge of the wall instead of moving the window along the wall. (ie: if I have a 20' wall with a window on it, I want the length between the corner and the window to be 4'... instead of moving the window over on the wall, it will just extend the edge of the wall out past its original point so it's now 24'). Please help!! I'm not sure how to look up this issue so if there's a video on it already please direct me there!

      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?
