Wall to Wall Relationships

Walls can relate to each other, and other element types, based on several factors. First, layer intersection priority defines which layers will intersect. Second, building materials determine how different composite or custom profile skins interact with each other. Lastly, wall/beam junction order determines in which order walls or beams will intersect.

Walls with different layer intersection priorities do not intersect in plan. Walls overlap to their reference line.

Building Material Priority
