allowing window to span across intersecting wall

Recommended Posts

Question:

is there any way to allow window to span across an intersecting wall?

I have run into this a couple of times when drawing existing situations and now am actually trying to draw this for a commercial building.

Dennis is correct. but if you have to move the window first pull back the wall then move the window. Add a polyline solid end cap.

Thanks guys!

"pull wall back" idea wasn't cooperating because one side of the wall is a 20' high room and the other side of the wall is divided into two floors.

I cheated the system and created a super thin wall that meets in the centre of the two window. We can deal with it properly at the time of construction but for now I just have to develop the visual concept.

Thanks again for your quick response!

      I've used CA for years and AutoCAD since 1985. (Yeah I'm old).
      In Florida we do a lot of Block house plans. (CMU) 8x16x8 concrete blocks.
      Other than manually placing block patterns. Does anyone have an easy way to do wall fill patterns to show the ACTUAL CMU BLOCK Pattern in plan view. 
      It would be great if it actually placed filled cells required for all window/door openings and corners. Any suggestions? 
       
      Thanks

      I design for a builder who uses concrete walls (Ritek). The builder wants the plans to show the window size correctly with the cutout 40mm larger all round. I see you can do this with stem walls. Is there a work around for normal walls? Doors are ok, I just make the jamb 40mm wide. This doesn’t seem to work for windows. The wall manufacturer wants to read my cad files, measuring the rough openings.  Any suggestions would be great, thanks

      Help! How do I connect the walls to the roof?

      I need to draw a greenhouse window in an as-built drawing such as in the attached photo. The Bay or Box window doesn't work as it   places walls under the three windows.  If there is a symbol out there I can't find it.  Anyone run across this.
       
      Thanks

      I think I have an issue with my "template" plan as I cannot get walls located above invisible walls to build correctly.  The wall in the attached plan is where the ceiling transitions from 12' tall to a room with a 9' tall ceiling.  I attempted the same drawing in a stock Chief template plan and everything worked like it's supposed to...so, I gather I have a setting in my template plan that is goofy...
       

      Thanks!
