Gaps in mouldings at invisible wall junctions

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Even after the latest update in X12 which mentions a fix for this issue, I still get these gaps.  

Or, am I doing something wrong?

What is your invisible wall type? Is it neatly lined up with the normal wall? If you post a plan I'll take a look...

The room divider between the kitchen and the living room isn't connecting to the interior wall. Make a copy of the room divider wall and give it a thickness of 1/2". Align it with the drywall when connecting walls. It will give you better control over short wall segments, so you can still have your room display even interior dimensions.

There is a Note in today's update that they (may) have patched this issue... cannot confirm as I can't install it again....

I did install the update and was happy to see that update note as a fix but I still have the issue.

It was never a problem in earlier versions.  It's an X12 bug.

 

  1. 2.3 Rooms

    • Fixed an issue that caused a gap at top of a Shelf Ceiling when that room’s Ceiling Height was the same as that of the surrounding room.

    • Fixed a problem that caused a flat ceiling to generate in a room with Flat Ceiling Over This Room unchecked when that room was adjacent to a room with a Trey Ceiling.

    • Trey Ceiling polylines can no longer be pasted into view types where they do not func- tion.

    • Corrected a case in which a Shelf Ceiling in one room affected the Trey Ceiling in another adjacent room.

    • Fixed a problem that caused room moldings to have gaps at the corners intersected by Room Divider walls.

Thank you Solver. That junction was definitely sloppy on my behalf. 
I still wasn’t able to fix all of the gaps. 
 

It seems X12 does not clean up as nicely for mouldings, regardless.

I noticed this too when selecting one of the interior rooms. I traced it to the wall connection at the front garage corner by the entry.

You have a soffit that does something I've never seen a soffit do.

I'd probably turn off room moldings and use a molding polyline. Easy to copy/reflect to the other side.

One click to generate crown.

Thanks!  I never thought of bypassing the built-in room mouldings.  You're right it makes more sense when you have sections that have to be treated differently.

I really can't figure out what that "outside room" area is being generated from?

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the facade wall where the front door wall sets back only 12 inches from the garage wall.  If I increase it to 24" then I can avoid the constant connection issues I have with these walls.  

Even after I get them connected properly they can inadvertently disconnect on a whim even when working on something totally unrelated on another part of the plan.
