Wall End

I just noticed that if I use a wall to SEO a slab or mesh (or anything else, I presume)... the wall END will NOT cut the TARGET element!

This is disheartening as all my meshes will have a little EXTRA SLICE where they meet a wall with a wall end...

Fortunately, if I DISABLE the Wall End 3d display, it cuts as I want.... Bad news is that the "core" will be represented only by the OVERRIDING material and not the COMPOSITE that I want...

Let me know if this makes sense...

The wall end is a separate object, and while associated to the wall and it trims the wall, it is not actually part of the wall.

What happens if you select the wall and the wall end object and then do the SEO?

SEO does not recognize wall ends as a legit operator..

Try to use complex profile colum instead of wall end tool, much better, uses material PBC , customizable

In my opinion the objects 'Wall End' should be replaced trough the possibility to "generate" sloped and composite wall ends as a part of the wall.
this wall ends now behave never completely like the wall itself, they, or et least the sloped one doesn't appear even in top view.

  • Must have been a very long time ago, I don't remember it.
    But I am getting old and forgetful now.

  • Yes it it would be nice to be able to use the Level Dimension Tool.
    But don't forget you can use the elevation label - not quite the same because it doesn't have the symbol.

    Crop to roof used to be quite prominent and operated differently to SEO and TRIM to roof. IIRC it creates a semi permanent trim independent of the cutting element. It’s still there, just buried...
