Shower glass wall cuts into drywall

Recommended Posts

How do you get the glass not to cut into drywall, I'm using Glass shower wall with pony wall below. As you can see in the pic below the glass cuts the drywall and a back splash for tile. Shows the framed wall beyond.

 

 Thanks in advance

I personally use polyline solids for my glass panels.

Thanks, I'll try that way

You bet. There are a ton of techniques people use for these situations but what I usually do is drag a wall down in elevation, cap it with a custom countertop (usually the thickness of tile) and then build the glass with polyline solid(s).

I do what Michael does as well, but I use a straight half wall instead of dragging the wall down. I just set at height I need and modify the rail (see attached).  But as mentioned, there are a couple ways to do this.

Just use the "edit wall intersections" tool in the bottom toolbar when you click on the wall. Make sure the upper(glass) wall is being displayed. Pull back the intersection to the face of the drywall.

Right, Just like I did in the video...

Yep, was parked on the page for a bit before I posted and didn't even see your post Ross. Definitely works this way.

Have you tried it with a wall material region? Currently away from my desk and just thought about that. I assume it would work the same way.

NVM, Just tried it and it looks great. Lol. I wasn't sure if the wall would "cut" or "interrupt" the Wall Material Region.

If you have material region it doesn't seem to affect it for some reason, looks clean. You cannot pull it back to material region surface unless you are cutting the surface by the thickness of the drywall.

For some reason, I thought it would be an issue. Looks like it's clean to me.
