Is it possible to create a wall type as attached in the image?. This is for a roof top patio partition wall. Could some one guide me please.

I think that particular setup would be best illustrated by building it as a panel railing system.  Build a panel in as much detail as you like in 3D to scale and convert to a millwork symbol.  You can also do the same for the newel post that can even include the mounting bracket and concrete footing if you like.

Let us know how it works out.

I'd start on the Chief website reading about railing walls. Once you understand the options you will see how this might be done.

Looks like a tall panel railing with a middle rail to me.

Hi Eric,

I tried reading and could not succeed. I could not get the glass panel with the middle rail, as well as the bottom as what you have shown. Could you please provide me some tips?

Thank you. I tried that could not proceed. Hence i was trying what Eric has drawn. Thats exactly what I am interested in. But I dont know how to achieve that. That's why it took me a while to respond back.

I believe Eric did a simplified version of exactly that as a demonstration.

 

Did you take a look at the tutorial ?   Where did you get stuck ?

 

You can only go about this far with the automatic tools :  No such thing as a middle rail option using an automatic panel, at least not yet...    We have been hoping for a while now.

Modeling your own panels allows you to include details like the assembly bolts if you like and that custom drop panel in the center.

Thank you very much for your reply. This is what I could get. But I don't know how Eric managed to add that middle rail. Let me try one more time to see if I could get close what you have shown. Thank you very much for your help.

Probably best to make a custom panel.  But a quick way to get what you want would be this way.  This is an 80" paneled railing with a molding line for the middle rail.  Took about 90 seconds.

There's a better than good chance that you're going to want to use the "open with middle rail" option so that you can see beyond the railing in elevation view...I'd use a molding or a solid to represent the glass, on its own layer of course.

Draw it right on the railing and add the molding and set it to the middle.

      Issue in X12 when using break tool to adjust wall for an extension over a column.
      Bare wall end fir stud and overhead framing stud can be seen in wall section instead of drywall.
       
      See attached file/pic.
       
      I do not believe soffit is viable solution as I am seeing that soffits will not frame.
      So framing is important.

      Many thanks to Solver as he addressed this issue and resolved it for my needs by applying different wall types to the wall area drawing. I posted my original files as reference and Solver's solution file (1868954996_MHD_sampletemplateplanSolutionWallEnds).
      And the solution frames out too as can be seen in file with camera Perspective Floor & Perspective Framing views.

      In past versions there was a button on the side where I could toggle on or off weather the marquis would select only things that are totally inside the marquis or anything that is touched by the marquis. Since I have been using x12, I can't figure out how to get this button back.

      Hello, I am wondering why is the garage foundation wall does not show/appear in the basement (level 0) floor where there is a door above on the first floor? (Plan attached). More over the location I have clouded shows the wall clearly, why it is not displaying at the other locations?

      I have created a number of different wall types to show proper dimensions (i.e. when one side of the wall is 5/8" Type X and the other side is 1/2" drywall) as well as to calculate the correct material counts and to show the proper information in the schedules.  Unfortunately doing that seems to have a down side...it changes the framing as if they were separate walls instead of the same wall with different materials on them.  I have seen the following side effects (colors refer to screenshots below):
       
      (Green Arrow) In unfinished rooms such as an attic storage space which only has a subfloor but no drywall, the walls get pushed up into the rafters by what appears to be 3". (Red Arrows) The floor joists and top/bottom plates are cut in the middle when they should be continuous pieces of wood.  In addition, you can see that the walls which are produced are not boxed at the end...the top & bottom plates stick out at the end. (Purple Arrow) Parts of the gable wall are not created.  In this case you could argue that it is not needed, but if a builder makes a wall he is not going to leave a hole in it. (Blue Arrows) An extra stud is added to a room that has no drywall, and therefore doesn't need nailer studs.  In addition, it looks like the other stud needed as a nailer for the finished room in the middle is missing from the plan view of the framing (see 2nd screenshot).  
      Am I doing this all wrong (creating separate wall types), or is there a way to use them and fix (any of) the issues I mentioned?
       
      Thanks in advance for any help!
       
      PS - I am a little surprised that the wall finish is not part of the room settings (like the floor & ceiling already are)...that would allow you to have continuous walls and still have different materials in each room (i.e. greenboard in the bath, 5/8" type X in a garage, unfinished in an attic, etc.
