Getting an interior wall and an exterior wall to frame as one wall

Recommended Posts

 

What's in the .dwg?

 

If you want someone to look at the plan you need to attach the plan file.

What he is talking about is when he selects the wall detail for that interior wall, he wants it to include the part of the exterior wall that is attached to it. Chief won't do that as they are different walls. 

 

It could be done I suppose. Use one single wall type over the entire plan and add the veneers using a material region, then manually do the foundation and roof. Too much work for me.

In your layout crop your layout box for each framing wall and put both walls side-by-side next to each other so it looks like one.

When I need to do things like I simply open both walls, check Retain Framing, open Wall Detail 1, Select All, Cut, open Wall Detail 2, Paste Hold Position, and manually adjust framing as necessary.
