Wall End Core Offset

Hi all,

Any chance someone has modified the Wall End Wrapped object to get it to work with a Finish Thickness in some way?

I'm not quite sure what you mean.
The side wraps match the outer skin thicknesses whether they are a finish or a core and the end thickness is adjustable.
As for the fill it uses you can tell it to wrap the left or right skin.

Woops. Talking about the Returned option, but the Wrapped has the same issue.

The Wrapped and Returned options are limited to the extent of your walls reference line, so it will always align with the finish face rather than the core requiring the wall to be extended the finish thickness.

I am still not 100% clear on what you want.
Is this what you are trying to do?

The Wall End does not extend past the reference line and hence does not line up with other walls since it shortens the walls structure.

Ah, I see what you mean.
I just experimented and a simple ADD command (needed in 2D & 3D scripts) will move the end.
So you could ADD the external skin thickness or give the user a parameter to adjust.
But of course it is not as simple as that.

Works OK with the wrapped end but not the return end - will need to extend the returning skins as well.

Maybe adding a complex profile column at the end instead is easier?

I am currently using complex columns.

I was hoping I could just shift the object placement, but had no success either with the Return End...

Alas, no you can't just move them because they associate to the end of the wall.
You will have to edit the script to allow for them to be moved.
Pretty simple with just an ADD for the 'wrapped' end as that already extends the outer skins.
Not so easy with the 'return' end as that doesn't extend the return skins - just places a cap at the end.
