Wall lines showing through exterior in elevation view.

Recommended Posts

I can't find out why the walls show through the exterior on either side of the window in the elevation view. I've tried playing with some layer options and didn't find a solution. I'm thinking it's because they occupy the same space because it's doing the same thing with the roof, but the walls automatically snap so it's not like I dragged the interior wall too far into the exterior.

Zooming doesn't fix the problem. I also just found a double line on the back side of the house. What does the orthographic camera see that the 3D model camera doesn't?

You need to turn off the AUTO ATTIC WALLS and pull the exterior wall over each direction. The lines are caused by the different walls intersecting at the same point.

Sorry...left out a step. After you turn off AUTO ATTIC WALLS delete the little triangle attic walls on each side of the lines. Then pull the exterior wall over.

I think if you go to the rooms at the second floor and DEFAULT THE CEILING HEIGHTS,  this should fix all.

 

I rarely rarely rarely change the ceiling heights from the default heights.  Maybe you do this to do the auto rebuild roofs,  I do  not auto build roofs.  Point is,  I rarely see this problem,  maybe because I leave the default ceiling heights in place.

Thanks for the help, I'm still not able to fix it though. I don't think I fully understand what you mean by pulling the exterior wall over. Did you have the 2nd floor exterior wall take the place of the triangular attic walls? I'm still playing around with it and the problem seems to come from either where the 2nd floor exterior wall ends, or where that wall meets an attic wall. Should I not have attic walls the same elevation as non-attic walls?

Never mind, setting the ceiling heights back to defaults fixed it without changing the size of my kneewalls. Thanks guys!

You can see in the picture that a drywall layer is going thru the outside wall, just use the "edit wall layer intersections" tool to bring it back to where it should be.

...use the "edit wall layer intersections" tool...

 

You know...I'm not sure I've ever used that tool.  Not sure if I ever even knew it was there.  Not sure I'll ever need it, but thanks for bringing to my attention Perry : )

      Hello, is there a way to display the ceiling elevation (height) on plan view, as we typically show them on architectural drawings?

      Issue in X12 when using break tool to adjust wall for an extension over a column.
      Bare wall end fir stud and overhead framing stud can be seen in wall section instead of drywall.
       
      See attached file/pic.
       
      I do not believe soffit is viable solution as I am seeing that soffits will not frame.
      So framing is important.

      Many thanks to Solver as he addressed this issue and resolved it for my needs by applying different wall types to the wall area drawing. I posted my original files as reference and Solver's solution file (1868954996_MHD_sampletemplateplanSolutionWallEnds).
      And the solution frames out too as can be seen in file with camera Perspective Floor & Perspective Framing views.

      Hi, I am trying to continue the exterior wall up to the dormer. When I exploded the auto dormer and extended the roofline it cuts off the gutter and eave boxes. I don't know if there is a better method for this or an easy fix, that's why I'm here. Thanks in advance.
