Trimming Columns Against Wall?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I haven't been able to find a simple way of clipping a column to fit against a wall.  In Autocad I would usually clip it at 4/5ths of the size for the visual effect of the column against the wall.  In Chief it seems to snap against the wall which would leave me with a gap between the column & wall surface. Am I missing something on this or do I need to build each one of these manually from scratch?


Thank you!

As above or uncheck Bumping/Pushing, same thing. You can place any object anywhere, just be aware that there are times when the object may cause or behave not as expected. If for example there is a floor height difference on each side of a wall and you place an object that projects into that wall it's height from the floor may lock onto the other floor height. You may need to manually adjust the objects height from floor.

      Building on the videos Eric (Solver) made recently...I did this video to show how you can construct a tapered paneled column in plan view, using p-solids and a molding polyline. It's a fast method...and the best part is you don't have to use a 3D molding polyline.
      Check it out....

      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.

      Hello, I am wondering why is the garage foundation wall does not show/appear in the basement (level 0) floor where there is a door above on the first floor? (Plan attached). More over the location I have clouded shows the wall clearly, why it is not displaying at the other locations?
