Insulation Wall

Recommended Posts

Hello. I want to represent Insulation walls inside a room. 

Exterior walls : CMU Blocs Stem Wall 200 or 300 : http://www.hl2r.fr/beton-cellulaire.html (black on the attached PDF)

Interior : insulation 10 to 14 cm : http://www.leroymerlin.fr/v3/p/produits/panneau-roule-en-laine-de-verre-gr-32-kraft-isover-2-7x1-2m-ep-100mm-r-3-15-e47190 (yellow crossed on the PDF)

When I try to use 2 walls side by side, the walls snap together and everything is changed on the floor (I tried also to unable auto snapping).

What is the best way to do that ?

(Each example I opened didn't use interior insulation walls so I dont know how to do that)

Regards

Not sure I completely understand your question but think maybe you need to make a new wall type with the layers you want.

I think I've found the good parameter : double wall - Frame Through OR double wall - Furred Wall.

 

When I use furred wall for my interior wall, it's OK : I can move the interior wall without moving or deleting exterior wall

 

If my interior wall is set to frame through, when I move it, it change the position of the exterior wall or delete it.

 

Is there an option to add an insulation layer wall automatically when I draw the exterior wall (CMU blocks stem wall) ?

Dennis is right , it would be better to make a single wall definition and draw it all as one ...only 1/2 the work. and windows and door should insert properly.

 

I added a length of wall in your plan to the left of you test house so you can see what I mean , you can also add it to your library , it is the wall I use for Basement walls here . If you put a checkmark in the INS box in the Wall definition  , CA will automatically put Insulation in that wall space.

Great ....should be easy to change the 8" Concrete Stem Wall to the 200mm/300mm Concrete Block it looks like you need , you can also change the Wood Framing to Steel framing for the interior wall if needed.

Nice, next question, does it frame well? Just curious how the model as a whole works for you. Can you cut sections easily that look correct. Nice job.

Very nice project and Micks wall looks great. Be sure and center foundation wall on footing, wall dbx under foundation. As Mr. Hall would say " accurate model".
