Show attic wall in elevation view?

Recommended Posts

I have a room where part of the ceiling shows as pitched and part is flat.  I have been able to create the look I need (although probably not correctly) but I am struggling a bit with the elevations.  If I use the wall elevation tool I only see the room wall and not the "attic" wall piece up top that has the ceiling planes on it.  When I make a shed roof to get the angled ceiling it breaks up the wall into two pieces.  I like the wall elevation because it is very clean, no extra wall/ floor/ceiling structure shown.  I can show both walls using the cross section/elevation tool but I cannot figure out how to get a clean look with that camera, it shows much more detail than I want to see.  This is the first I've really had to work with this so I'm sure there is a lot I don't know.  I tried turning on and off different layers but I didn't have much luck getting what I wanted although I can make it a bit cleaner.  Am I missing an easy way to get both walls to show simultaneously using the wall elevation tool?  Or is there a way to have that wall be generated as one tall wall instead of two?

 

Thanks for the help!

You answered your own question in that the camera you need to use is either a "Crosssection/Elevation Camera" or a "Back clip crosssection/elevation camera", only those cameras a pre-programmed to show attic and foundation walls as you have already demonstrated above.

yeah I see that those cameras are built to show different things, I was hoping I could edit them a bit more.

 

So I guess the other way would be to combine those wall into one, is that possible?  or to have it generated as one wall one from the start?

I searched for this as I figured it had to be out there somewhere but I guess I'm not that good at searching.  Thanks for taking the time to share that link, I think that has answered all my questions.  Now I'll just have to experiment with a method that works best for me.
