Break wall near corner - how to do it close?

Recommended Posts

For the brick wainscot wall I have on a face elevation, client wants it to wrap only 12 inches on adjacent sides.  Framing is 2x6.  I have this as a pony wall and need the pony wall length on the return side to be 12 inches.

 

I cannot get (or force) the wall break for this pony wall to be that close.  Closest I can get is 14 and a fraction.

 

What controls this?

Preprogramming controls that, it is a limiting factor, I recommend you replace your wall with something you can more closely control just in that area (slabs, soffits, etc).

This is a super ultra mega maximum annoying Chief issue and really needs to be fixed. It's near the top of my list of most irritating things... Right up there with stubbing my toe, bumping my head, and telemarketers.

If you put a short invisible wall segment, using the Room Divider wall type - you can place it far enough from a corner that the main wall will take the break, then move it so the remaining segment is the length you want.

I've was able to make the 12" brick return to hold by offsetting the wall 0.01" using the transform/replicate tool.

My answer is similar to Wendy's.

I was half way through posting when Wendy posted.

Thanks, all.  I tried both methods and both work.

 

So, Bill, would you change your wall-move way and use the invisible wall junction way?

Gene,  I think Wendy, and Glenn's method are the best way.  It had been so long since I had done this that I forgot about the invisible wall method.

 

But in this screen shot I've been able to reduce the amount of the brick return further than possible with the invisible wall method by using a wall material region for the siding on the return wall

Hy Guys,

My renovation plan is making me to ask more and more questions :) . It's time for outdoor decoration and I am looking for some Unique Landscape Designers. What I want is a breathtaking result which should be fabulous! I am really crazy on home decor and I like to hear from all of you people. Can you please share me your design ideas and experiences? One suggestion which I got from an fb friend is Infinity Gardens.

Thank you.

 

You've veered so far off topic with this last post that some who might respond will miss it.  I recommend a new thread.
