Interior of Wall exposed when railing is joined

Recommended Posts

I am having difficulty joining a railing to a wall without the internal bits of the wall and the exterior siding showing.  There is a room divider between the upper room and the lower landing to separate the areas of different heights.  The room divider is also interfering with the flooring on the landing below.

If I pull the railing back everything goes back to normal but the room perimeter is no longer complete and the stairwell is no longer open to below (see below).

Here is what it looks like on the plan view.  I have tried flipping the divider wall.  I have tried moving the divider wall forward and back a bit.

I originally tried an invisible wall instead of a room divider but the drywall would show up in the lower half of the room.  When I unchecked "Generate between platform" on the invisible wall it was a little better but I was still left with a band of drywall across the stairwell and part of the flooring gone.  I tried checking pretty much everything else in the wall structure of the invisible wall too.

I have spent hours playing with this and would appreciate any suggestions.

Post the plan and you’ll probably get a more definitive answer, but it looks to me like Chief is just unsure as to which of those three or four walls to join to which of the other two or 3 walls and in which way to join them and their various layers.  There seriously might be 100 or more different combinations of ways that those walls and their various layers might be interconnected and Chief is just picking one that you don’t want.  When those unique scenarios arise, we typically have to use either the Edit Wall Layer Intersections tool, edit the wall definition(s), and/or use additional walls to help control the way they all intersect.  
 

in addition to the above, it’s also possible you simply have something set up wrong.  It’s all guesses without a plan.

Thank you.  I am pretty sure it was all working before I had to rebuild the foundation.  I tried the edit wall tool as you suggested but it continued to defy all attempts to correct it.  It seems like a bit of a kludge but short of rebuilding the whole front of the house this is what I came up with to make it work.  I would have really rather figured out what I did wrong and how to fix it for next time but this works for now.  There must be a better way but it works.  I still have the same problem with the flooring missing below the room divider but maybe I can avoid camera shots in that area.

Do you have that railing wall def marked as a partition wall?

Drawzilla,

 

The railing type is set to a standard Interior-4 and the "Partition Wall" field was not checked.   The railing is acting as a divider between the main floor and the "open to below" stairwell area.  I just tried setting the railing as a partition wall and that solved the entire corner problem.  It had been working to divide the areas of different heights so I figured it was acting as a partition wall already.

Thank you, I am pretty sure I would never have thought to look there myself.  I only converted from ACad two weeks ago and I guess I have a lot to learn.

 

Any thoughts on the missing flooring beneath the invisible wall?

 

Thanks again for your help!!

for the landing, like Michael said earlier , post the plan so someone could play around with it to see for sure rather than guessing.
