Hi guys, I met a problem. I can't set different thickness of the wall closure. As shown in pic below, How can I set thickness of "b" not equal to "a"? Thank you !

I'd have to have a dig around in the settings but I am sure you can achieve this.

I need to open an old project and see how I did it. I won't be able to do it until later today. If you haven't heard back tomorrow, chase me.

WOW THANK YOU! You saved me Andrii! The secret is to use the wall reveal along with the custom closure and it's thickness must equal to the custom thickness!😀

Hi William,

 

This is really a problem because even in the Archicad Channel video (as you showed above)  there are lines of varying thickness as you may have noticed.

I have some workaround for myself, but I don't know if it will suit you because it's a bit complicated.

 

But looks like the picture below.

Workaround is based on the following:
I turn off Skin End Line only for core wall material.
Then I add 0.1mm thick air space on the inside of the composite wall and wrap it to the outer edge of the window in Window Settings Dialog>>Wall Closure>>Inside Face, creating a Skin End Line where I need it.

 

I don't know if such a workaround will be useful for you, but sometimes it helps me for some cases.
