Wall Junction Trouble Shooting

There are times when walls just do not seem to want to clean up. There are several “tricks” to getting walls to look good in plan. Areas to pay attention to are:

  1. Wall Reference Lines
  2. Layer Intersection Groups
  3. Building Material Priorities
  4. Wall Junction Order Settings
  5. Composite Core/Finish/Other Designations

Here are a few videos to help trouble shoot these plan connections:

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.

Layer Intersection Priority

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

Building Material Priority

Screen Shot 2015-04-29 at 8.48.04 AMWalls with different core building materials will have a separator line at the core. Skins may be cut through by the core if the finish skins have a lower building material priority, even if the reference line is set to the wall core.
