Cadimage Coverings Tool - Inside Corner Connections Issues

Rene Pahlavan
Enthusiast

Cadimage coverings tool is overextending into the walls with the claddings - even though the walls themselves are intersected properly. Images attached. I have tried several times to delete and try again and keep getting the same result. Really like the coverings tool, but pretty new to it. Anyone else experience this and maybe know why it is happening or what the fix is?

I was able to pull the cladding/covering back individually with the red manipulation buttons in plan view

I wrote my own so I could not pay.

But cadimage was my initial inspiration.

Also this is likely a question for central innovation, as it's most likely something on their end.

As @SenecaDesignLLC said this question should be addressed to CI. I have no experience with their add-ons, but my best guess would be that this might be a layer intersection priority problem. Try using a dedicated wall covering layer for this elements, If this is possible with this add-on, and set the layer priority number different to whatever the priority number of the wall layer is.

Thanks Miha_M. I had the cladding on its own layer - but the intersection priority was the same as the wall. I will change the number and see what happens….
