Walls not connecting

Gabriel Cristea
Contributor

 

Hi, any idea why any of my walls won't intersect?
- they are on the same layer
- the layer intersection number is the same and it's not 0
- the reference lines are connecting
- the auto intersection is turned on in Options
- the "clean wall and beam intersections" setting is turned on

They’ve not accidentally been placed within different Design Options or Renovation Filters have they?

Hi @Gabriel Cristea 

 

Turn on Clean Wall & Beam Intersections at View> On-Screen View Options.

It happened to me today as well, the walls were connected earlier, as I worked on the landscaping and noticed all walls were disconnected, no matter what I do they don't connect anymore.

No, I literally take the wall tool and draw some chained walls and they come out like that, so they are continous, on the same layer, same everything.

You were partially right that switching rennovation filter fixed it. Don't get me wrong, I just switched from Existing Plan to Demolished then that fixed it. However, even switching back to Existing still keeps them fixed so it's not something wrong in the Existing Plan that was causing it...no clue what caused that but that seems to have done the job. Thanks.
