There are different ways. I can name these 3 different methods
I attach the bottom of a wall to the roof. The Attach tool works great!! However it presents a new set of problems in modeling.
There is a wall that extends from the FF to the Ceiling. On top of the wall are sloping trusses with 5/8” plywood. On top of the plywood deck is a parapet wall.
The parapet which sits on top of a sloping plywood deck or “top of truss” level. I placed a wall on the” top of truss” level then I extended a wall from the top of truss level to the sloped roof plane or plywood deck. Worked great until I move around the model and looked at other views.
I have need to connect the finish material. I unlock the stucco level on the lower level which is the finish floor to the ceiling and extend it to meet the stucco at the bottom of truss. See attached drawings that shows a line where the stucco from different walls meet. Can I get rid of this line?
Next I need to extend the stucco from the bottom of the parapet wall located at the top of truss level down to the ceiling level. See attached drawing in front of building in front of the building.
I used the following Edit assembly > Modify > Then unlock the exterior finish at the bottom of the wall , and I get a message “cannot extend layer (s) of the highlighted vertical compound wall”. Is this is because I am extending the wall to a sloping roof. Is there way to extend the stucco when the wall has been extended to a sloping wall?
What I am trying to do is have elevations and cross section accurate once the model is complete. I am not sure if this is the best work flow.
I am not sure if edit profile will give me a better result. However it will be my next attempt if I have exhausted the attach wall command approach.
I realize I could have cad drafted the section and then detailed much faster than this modeling process. However I enduring the pains of trials and errors to learn what is the best and fastest way.
