SAME WALLS NOT MERGING

cadsph

Hi,

I've got an intersection of four walls, which are all the same composite. 

 

But two are facing one way the other two are facing the other. 

The timber frames are not merging for all four wall.

Is this correct? (Please see attached).

Their Reference Lines, the blue lines when selected, need to intersect. You can do this by setting a Reference Line Offset to one of your walls, or by referencing the structural inside for one and structural outside for the other.

Also check the strengths of your building materials used in the composite.

The timber frame should be stronger than the adjoining skins.

Stronger building materials will cut weaker ones.

Great. Thanks for that it!

But I'm still having problems getting different composite walls to merge - given they all have the same timber frame?
