Composite walls intersection wrong?

William Yan

Hi guys, I have a problem. When the composite walls intersect, the mortar layer is not closed. I think I set the material right. but why the mortar is not cover the concrete wall end.

The concrete (760) is stronger than the mortar (300) so it will cut the mortar away.

In this particular case you will need to duplicate the mortar and have an internal mortar (300) and an external mortar (761+).

Thank you Barry, But I think this will cause some addtional problems.Snipaste_2022-09-02_14-21-38.png

Yes it will.

Try this - not sure if it will work.

Leave the mortar at 300.

Set the concrete and the brick to the same strength (say 600).

 

I know if you have a brick wall joining a brick wall or concrete joining concrete, it will work as they are the same strengths, but also the same building material.

I am not sure if different building materials with the same strength will do the same.

1. Change the mortar back to 300

2. Use the Wall End Tool. It's under "more" in your toolbox or

3. Use a complex profile and column

Yes this should work.

Different building materials - same strength stronger than the mortar skin.

Use the junction order to control which way the corner joins.

Thank again Barry. I will try this way.🤝

In my humble opinion Wall End tool is much easier to use once than to create the same strength of building materials. Because then there may be problems with the intersection and set the junction order every time.

But that is only my opinion.

How do you place a wall end on a corner wall?

Do you have to break the corner connection (i.e. reduce length of wall), then place the wall end, adjust wall end to sizes you want and then re-trim the corner?

 

I can get it to work that way, but that seems a lot of work to do at each corner.

With the correct building materials set up in your job (and ideally template), it is all automatic as you place the walls.
