Hi everyone,

 

I’m architecture student so I’m quite new to Archicad, does anyone know how to cut the ends of the wall to 45 degree angel so the wall becomes pointed. Due to the walls being so close to another it doesn’t want to create that point. Any suggestions would be must appreciated. 

Thanks

If your wall reference lines are on the outside of the walls and they meet at one point, the walls should trim to a point.

@DanielG An alternative to the normal solution @Barry Kelly has shown would be to form the closing using the wall tool in polygon mode.

Hey Barry,

 

Thank you very much for that, that helped to fix it on the plan. The only issue is when looking at the 3D plan it didn’t change. Would you know any fix with that.

Hello @DanielG,

 

You are able to stop your walls and create a column with your own complex profile to join them.

Can you select the walls and show where the reference lines are?

 

I have been trying ref lines in different sides and it seems to be fine if they join at one point.

I thought it might also be the angle of the join, but that doesn't seem to matter either.
