Intersection of Straight and Slanted Walls

by GRAPHISOFT and Judit Boros · updated: 06.28.2011

The connection of two Walls and their Fills on the Floor Plan does not match your needs.
The intersection depends on the Reference Lines of the Walls (turn on View menu/ On-Screen View Options/ ‘Walls & Beams Reference Lines’ option), on the geometry method of the Wall, on Wall Priorties and on many other object parameters.

In our example we create an intersection of straight and slanted walls:

Step 0: Straight and Slanted Walls

This is the original situation. As you can see, the intersection on the floor plan and in 3D is different.


Step 1: Create an additional Wall

Place an additional wall with start and endpoints as you see on the below image.

Note: the wall parameters needs to be set, so you will not see the overhead line pen, that is, the end wall outline in 2D.


Step 2: Solid Element Operation

With Solid Element Operation (SEO: Design/ Solid Element Operation) enter the following settings and press Execute.


Step 3: Repeat Solid Element Operation


Step 4: Add a new Layer

Create a new Layer for the SEO element » Document/ Layers/ Layer Settings/ new Layer with a name, for example SEO hide and hide it right away.


Step 5: See the result in 2D and 3D

The intersection in 2D and in 3D. ( with additional lines you can make the 2D view look better.)
