moulding wall issue

Recommended Posts

I just drew a exterior wall. Then a polyline converted to moulding to see how it would work simply. I did to top and it went to bottom. 


Anyone know how to correct this? I was practicing so I could use on retail centers.

Because you have not attached a plan, this is just a guess, but I am assuming you expected the moulding to go to the top of the wall but "to top" is setting the moulding in relation to your moulding p-line...not the wall. To get that moulding to the top of the wall you would have to adjust the height of the moulding p-line...or offset the moulding by the height of the wall. In other words, if you have a 96" tall wall, you could either set the moulding p-line at 96" and set the moulding at 0" "to top" or you could set the moulding p-line at 0" and set the moulding to 96" "to top".

Draw your line in elevation. Convert to a 3D Molding Line. Assign your profile.




Check in plan view that it's positioned correctly.

      I have watched the video of ChiefSkills by Steve Nestor, "DORMERS - Auto and Manual Types"
      Trying to use the idea there to cut my walls out of the living space. I think you called it "Cheek Walls".
      See the real picture and the angled ceiling. That is what I am trying to do.
      Any thoughts?

      Hi, I am a Revit user converting to Chief. 
      When working with angled walls in Chief, I have not been able to lock a wall from moving when changing dimensions on connecting walls. 
      I am familiar with how to use the directional tools to move an end of an object to adjust its dimensions.
      When angled walls are off-angle, I can waste significant time adjusting the lengths of the angled walls and still not achieve the dimensions I need for all connecting walls.
      The use case scenario is when I am drafting a plan using dimensions provided to me to create the build.  
      Of course, if I was creating a plan from scratch, I could probably avoid this situation.  
      Any suggestions?

      The wall shown is on the same plane with a false gable roof above only a portion. The wall from the interior will reflect the same ceiling height as the rest of the home, but from the front elevation I would like the wall to be taller to move my gable up. How can this be done in CA as the wall heights are dictated by the room's ceiling height?

      Hello All, 
      I am working on a project, which its an addition to a service garage with an apartment above. The problem that I am having is that I need a new wall against an existing in order not to see a hole in the area of the existing wall. As you can see in the image of the second floor plan below where I circled it is where I need to add another wall. 

      As you can see from my front elevation. I have a hole in the area where there is no wall. 

      I have attached a back-up of plan to this email for reference also. I am open to other suggestions on how to fix this issue. 
      Thank you in advance for the help.
