Complex Wall Profiles - Clean Wall Intersection

Therefore has anyone been able to achieve a
clean wall intersection with Complex Wall Profiles
where the wall structure in one of the walls has
different elements/fills assigned.
Please see attached.

are your walls set to use the composites' skin priorities (look under wall settings/floor plan and section/structure/ wall priority)

as for the height, i think not... i've been using walls that extend over several stories with walls that exend only one story and have not had height related issues...

Thanks Christina, yes wall priorites are enabled.
Looks like another little job for the "patch"

Rod,

I think that the priorities option is just an extension to old wall clean-up system based on fill types. So in other words the fill type has a priority over priorities number. If that makes a sense.

Rob, I have another complex wall which cleans up correctly.
(Different thickness and only one leaf with 3 skins joining 2 leaves and 5 skins.)
But both walls have the same fills/priorities for the full height of wall.

Therefore I'm convinced if a complex wall is made up with different fills stacked above each other
it would be difficult to choose which of these fills has priority with it's intersecting cousin.
In this case I'd hoped that at least the cavity would have overall priority.

With the FPCP set you would hope that fills displayed at that height if identical would enable a
clean intersection. One more headache for the programers!

Another small work around.
And so it goes.
