Edit wall junction help please

Recommended Posts

A pony wall, a foundation wall, and an interior wall have a close crash.  How can I get the junction needed.  It is in bedroom 2 on the walkout lower level, and I drew a CAD line.  I want the pony wall and foundation wall to join.  The close proximity of the interior wall seems to be interfering with what I want to do.

 

It's 30 megs so I am trying Dropbox.  Let's hope this link works.

Not sure what the problem is.  They look joined to me.  Can you be more specific?

Hi Gene,  Hope this is what you are after.

Thanks.  Looks like I need to use a CAD patch.  I can live with  it, but will file a ticket with Chief.

 

I'll try something else, too.  The stemwall gets a 2" facing on inside of rigid foam, and I'll add that layer to the wall.

P.S.  Looks like it is time to add another "X" to your signature.   Hope the foam can be added without making things worse.

You should be able to clean up that wall intersection by using the Edit Wall Layer Intersections tool.

The little yellow return should be moved 2" in the minus-y direction.  And I cannot succeed.

 

How about a video?

More like this?

I will attach the plan so that you can deconstruct it.

Find the small Room Divider wall running across the screen at the end of the pony wall (same width as the pony wall and drawn in line with your cad line).

I stripped this plan down as much as I can, but still can't get it below about 27Mb - not sure why, it should be much smaller.

This comment intrigued me, so I opened the plan and simply saved it on my system without making any changes.  The newly saved file is only 1,740 KB.  I wonder if it's a Mac thing.  super weird for sure.

I have Glenn's file and can see there's a solution, but cannot get the result needed in my model.  I place a dividing wall but cannot edit its length to 5.5".  It wants to remain at 4.

 

Have tried the wall junction edits in every sequence.  Nothing gets me there.

 

The model is large because it's populated with furniture and because it is all trussed.

Hi Gene,  Here is my take on the way Glenn must have done it.

Thanks, Chopsaw.  But I am not able, no matter what I do, to reproduce your moves.

 

I am still failing.  I'm unable to get the invisible room divider wall's length to 5-1/2" and I have tried everything.  I open its spec, set length at 5-1/2", and it won't go there.  It seems to want to snap to a 4" length.  I have grid snaps off.

 

If I get the stemwall end where needed by dragging the room divider wall there, I am unable to get the Siding-6 wall to come to the junction, no matter how I "edit" the wall layers to improve the wall junction.

 

I'm lost.  How about dropboxing the file back to me, as you have fixed it, and I run with that.

 

Or maybe someone can do a Skype or GoToMeeting with me.

Thanks!  I fiddled with mine some more and got it to work!  The behavior of the edit wall junction in this particular situation is quirky and unpredictable.

The file size Glenn and I were referring to was for a stripped down version.

Chopsaw,

That was pretty close to what I did.

 

I opened Chief this morning, opened and then saved the plan and it is now down to about 2Mb.
