Issue with Suppressing Casing and sheetrock wrapping "nub" walls

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - 

 

It's been a while... I'm hoping one of you awesome Chief gurus can help me out. I fought the upgrade to X7 but finally bit the bullet for my latest project. I'm working on modeling the AS-BUILT and everything's been going along well until I tried to suppress the casing on a couple of arched interior doorways. I can see the stud material peeking through instead of nice clean sheetrock. Also, when I created a nub wall, the end showed the Doug Fir stud material - the sheetrock simply wouldn't wrap the exposed end. I haven't come up against this before and can't seem to figure out how to fix it. There are no invisible walls creating odd intersections. For the doorways I tried setting the casing to zero. This created a smoother look but then the molding doesn't wrap around the doorway opening. I know I can create a molding polyline to fix this but it really shouldn't be this hard!

 

I searched the forum and can't any other threads indicating this issue. Am I the only one? :( 

 

Any help is much appreciated.

I thought I attached it. Here it is. The crazy thing is I just did a super simple box with a roof and a couple of interior walls. The issue did not replicate. There must be something with this plan. It's kind of a funky roof-line (that I'm still working on modeling) but I can't see why that would cause this issue.

I think its your wall definition.  You've added a layer (presumably a paint color) with a zero thickness on each side of the wall.  That zero thickness layer is what's wrapping the end of the wall.  Delete that layer or increase the thickness and the framing covers.

Oh my gosh. Thank you so much. That was exactly what it was. It's funny, I've never done that before but with the new interface I thought what the heck - I'm tired of having materials called "dry wall-painted whipped cream", etc. Thank you again for figuring it out for me! Much appreciated.

Could you please elaborate on "increase the thickness and the framing covers" ?

      Is it possible to change the Wall Board (Drywall) size from the default size of 4x8 to 4x12 when CA calculates the materials list?

      Hi everyone, I'm a new CA user here learning the software.
       
      Does anyone know how to exclude the exterior window/door casing at the lower stone veneer pony wall? I can't find anything in any of the tutorials or on here.
       
      I'd like the casing to stop at the stone water table, and have the stone veneer stop at the window jamb, and there be a stone window sill. I assume this is a simple fix that I just can't figure out.

      When I create a wall niche in X10 and add casing in the specification dialog box, the casing is not set against the wall unless you make the depth of the niche the same depth of the wall.
      Is there a way to change this or is this a bug?
      FYI: pretty new to Chief, started with X9, but don't remember having this problem before...

      I appreciate any help or input on this problem.  I have been having this issue for the last 3-4 months and have just been working around it.  I only do as-built and remodel plans, so I need to show the casing widths -especially for kitchen remodels. In a PLAN---For example:  3 1/4" casings when dimensioned, whether with automatic interior dimensions or manual dimensions show up as 3 1/2".  
       
      I have contacted Chief support and sent them a different plan file.  They told me to change the "Rounding Method" in the Dimension Defaults setup.  I have selected both "Grid Rounding" and "Distance Rounding" and it does not make a difference.  I have also tried:  locating first the sides and then changed it to rough opening to see if I could work around this glitch.  NO luck.
       
      I have Chief X9 Interiors and have used Chief since 8.0 and have never had this problem previously.  I even opened one of the Chief Architect templates and drew a simple box with one interior wall and inserted a door, then dimensioned---same issue.  
       
      Here are my default settings

      I am trying to re-create this 'look' on columns. I know how to make the thickened casing but can't figure out how to stop it half way down the arched opening.
      Thanks
