Thicker wall wrapped doorway?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to add these accent wrapped doorways in my plans, but have always struggled to have it show properly. As you can see, the walls do not like to play nice as I use multiple thicknesses. I've used polyline solids to show it in the plan, but I'd definitely prefer it to show as a wall properly. Any tips?

I very much appreciate your help.

 

To keep drawings simple, I just use a 4" interior and 6" exterior wall. I generally look to use a 12" wrapped doorway.

The plan cannot be open in Chief.

You can use a thick wall, a wall containing 2 walls in the main layer, and probably 2 walls with the door going through, if the walls are close enough together.

Hm, yes it is oddly hit or miss when Chief decides to place the wall properly for me. It looks to work if I extend the 12" from a perpendicular adjacent wall. A followup to that - is there a way to select the width of the wall I am drawing vs adjusting the thickness after I have placed it?

 

Hopefully that is clear. Thanks again.

You can add walls to the library, select and draw.
