Walls Not Forming Correctly On Upper Portion Of Balloon Wall.

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to fix the issue with my walls to no avail. I've got a meeting with this client in 6 hours.

 

Render the model in 3D and you'll see the problem with the balloon walls along the main portion of the house along the courtyard.

 

FYI, this is my client's concept. I'm still working on the window schedule, exterior trim, etc., but I need to get this issue fixed first.

 

I've attached a stripped down version of the plan. Your help is always appreciated.

I did not open the plan but a quick look at the picture suggests that you need to pull the lower roof planes back a little to allow the wall to extend to the upper roof.  Then set the lower roof to span onto the siding instead of the framing.

Grab this exterior wall and drag it across to the west wall:

Then select the wall segments on the interior, open the object dbx, and set the Roof>Lower Wall if Split by Butting Roof to Room Divider:

Then set the Wall Types>Pony Wall>Display in Plan View to Lower Wall:

Repeat for the other side.

Or, similar,

 

drop the ceiling and make that entry wall attic wall extend the full width of the building. Get rid of that invisible wall at the main attic wall line. Opened and saved in X8

Yeah, I tried that. It just formed perpendicular walls and added a funky roof plane.

Remember roof planes in that condition should stop at the exterior wall finish ,not the studs.

It's not the roof planes - I think. You can pull the roof planes back and it has no effect.

To reiterate what the guys above offered as solutions...

 

You simply didn't have any walls to display.  You needed to build them.
