converging wall types in X12

Recommended Posts

I have two different wall types here for a basement plan I'm working on.  One is an 8" concrete stem wall with a 1 1/2" air gap, 3 1/2" framing, and 1/2" drywall.  The other is a standard interior 6 wall.  I can't seem to get them to play nice in the areas that they merge.  Any help?

Hard to tell what the problem is...but, you may want to try and define your foundation wall as I have shown in the attached. You may want to look into "furred wall" also. Sometimes if you designate a wall or a portion of a wall as "furred" [you can find this setting in the wall dbx under the structure tab]. 2021-02-27_15-22-37.thumb.png.1127aa00cae7c48fbe79a0219fda7bbe.png

Thank you Chopsaw!  I was able to edit the intersection points and achieve essentially what I was looking for.

      Up until recently, my reference display worked great exactly as shown in the help docs and videos. I have no idea what changed, but now it no longer appears in red, but rather in black and anywhere a line on the reference display coincides with a line on the displayed floor, the lines "obliterate" one another and there is no line shown at all. It makes for some very strange views that are uninterpretable, especially when windows are on top of each other. I attached pics to show what I mean. 
       
      In my layer display options, the reference display set looks normal. Everything is in red. 
       
      How can one "reset" the reference display to work as it does in a fresh plan?

      Has anyone had their elevations become corrupted lately? The only fix for me is to open up the elevation and send to layout on some junk page I'm not going to print. This restores the elevation on the elevations page I intend to print. I'm an advanced user and have tried all the visual styles, plot lines, etc.. I feel like this is a hardware issue, driver issue, or software bug.

      Hello there!
       
      I'm new to chief as of a few weeks ago. I'm really loving how in-depth you can get with it. Hopefully this isn't to much of a newbie question that is easily answered somewhere else but I have seen anything on it. I'm trying to attach a shed roof to a gable. I have a feeling this is something similar to a porch roof, but after messing with it for a few hours I cant figure it out. 
       
      This is what I'm go
                                    
       
      Here is where I'm at. 
       
      I've attached my plan if that helps!
      I'm using x12 
       
      Thanks!
