Wall extension


Hello All,


Beginner question:


Problem 1: In the attached image.  On the roof, the wall should stop at the highlighted perpendicular wall. But it continues few feet till the end of the higher roof. Why?


Problem 2: on the upper floor view, the entire wall is visible while it is trimmed to the flat lower roof. Why is that ?


Thanks a lot!

Did you try not using trim to roof - use Roof for SEO instead ?

Yes, tries all that, it continues to the higher roof, as if the lower roof wasn't valid.  Revit has a function to work on wall profile, does Archicad have such function?

I thing i'll have to split the wall, lower/ higher portion.

I would say model how it is built, that always keeps these things from happening.

Archicad does not have this same function as such, but in Archicad 25 it is now possible to create polygonal openings. So if you place a polygonal opening into a Wall, then you can modify the polygonal shape of the Opening to cut the top or bottom portion of the Wall to the exact shape you want.

In earlier versions this could be achieve by Solid Element Operations.
