Hello all. 

Does anyone know how to make these composite walls intersect properly? They all are of the same material strength but I can't get them to intersect.

I'd really appreciate your assistance. 


Check your Layer Intersection Group. The walls you want to connect should all be on the same group, with said group not being Zero.

I think from that image you need to make sure your wall base lines are intersecting properly. AC won't join walls unless the base lines meet.

A CI quick tip to help us enable Auto Intersection is posted below.


You can also fix the 90 degree corner join by selecting both walls and clicking the corner join icon. Please see this excellent video to see how by an expert Archicad user.


Like Ling says above, the walls need to be grouped together but before you do that you usually need to draw walls using the continuous method. (see the icon in the walls drawing methods at the top of your screen). 


Like DGS says, your base lines need to meet but if you draw with the method I explained above it should do that automatically.


Archicad gives you more control at how walls behave so you have to know how it works first.
