Showing wall layers in elevation

Recommended Posts

I will try to explain this the best I can... I draw a room with some cubbies for bookshelves (see floor plan pic), I place some cabinets in the cubbies.  I go to the elevation and I paint the wall the color of the cabinets.  My problem is with the L side of the middle wall where it has a line going up the side of it. (see elevation pic).   That layer of the wall is still the color of the side wall it connects to... but even if I paint that layer the cabinet color, I still see the line in the wall.  Make sense? It doesn't do it on the right side for some reason.  This is just a sample plan.  The one I'm working on needs to look seamless across the entire wall... I can't have lines in weird places.  I've tried multiple things. Thanks for your help.

Attaching your sample plan will help.

 

Try drawing the problem wall in the same direction as the good wall. Turn on Start and End indicators and make sure both walls match.

Have you tried making your offending wall a 'through wall' at both its start and end?

I fixed it!! I tried both of your suggestions with no luck, though I wasn't sure where to "turn on"  the start and end indicators. The walls were definitely connected.   I selected the horizontal wall in the middle, edited the "wall layer intersections" ... and TA-DAH! I'm so happy.  Thank you so much! You both are so helpful.  :)

Thank you! I turned it on to see what it did... do you keep these on? Just curious. Seems like it might be helpful.

Yes , I find it very useful , it also works for CAD lines etc if you didn't realise , not just Walls.
