Walls that border private units in an appartment building are generally constructed of two load bearing walls (concrete or other) with a thin layer of acoustic insulation between them. Sadly a composite doesn't allow to have a core skin either side of a finish/other skin. Whenever I want to show just the core of load-bearing elements, this insulation skin is visible as well. Which apparently shouldn't be.
There is a workaround using complex profiles (see previous post - Composite walls )
However, this can generate other issues, so it's a no go!
This just needs to be resolved in the composite! Period!!!
The more I use Archicad, the less I am convinced of the work behind it. 😪

The only issue I'm aware of used to be being unable to schedule 'skin thickness' in schedules for a complex profile (I guess since it could be any shape, not just a rectangle). Since the replies I wrote back in 2018 in the other mentioned topic, this is no longer an issue. At least not in AC23 project I'm currently working in.
Still, it would be a lot easier to just use a composite.
I personally think this should be the next step forward in the composite walls tool. The "core" problem doesn't just occur in separating walls between properties, it can also occur with internal timber / steel partitions seeking high levels of acoustic separation which can include multiple different materials between the framing structure. In an ideal world it would be great if GS could lift the core constraint on wall build up to allow truly complex layering that can adapt to evolving technologies and display correctly with the Partial Structure Display options.

I am happy to say we took notice of this wish and I have added it to our Wish List database (please refer to it as Wish IDEA-4295). Hopefully, our Product Management team will adopt this one in the future.
