How to cut just the exterior wall finish in this section view

Recommended Posts

See the picture.  A breezeway intersects the house wall, and we know it's just sheathing in that attic area.  How to delete the siding?

You could select Lower Wall Split by Butting Roof... select whatever wall type you want for the lower part.

  1. you'll need a different wall type for that area, possibly a pony wall, and because of the elevation of the butting roof, you'd need to manually adjust the wall polyline.
  2. You can use a material region that cuts the finish layers. Set this to material to be 1/2" plywood (or whatever material you need)
  3. the gable wall can be set to have a different wall type where it is cut by the roof, essentially an automatic pony wall. Wall Spec. dbx, roof tab.

The material region is my preference. I'd be setting it as a single layer, 1/2" thick, material...housewrap.
