Joining parapet cap

What is the matter with all new software? Nothing is simple. Here's another problem that cost me a lot of time and effort: I have made a wall with a parapet on top using sweeps. However, no matter how much I try I can't get these four walls to join their parapet caps together around the corners. All the other walls are ok. It's just these four. I've tried disjoining and joining the walls, pulling and dragging the walls and/ord the caps back and forth without success. Please explain to me why this even should be an issue????

Where is the line locations for your walls?  I'd check them 1st......seen cases where if they where to the 'inside' of the wall some sweeps wouldn't work right......Also may want ot look at the Sweep Profile itself, and it's origin/orientation.

Try using the Wall Join Tool, and Miter the corners. Sometimes this cleans up the sweeps.

As you can see, they are perfectly in line. As I said, the problem is not the profile itself, since sweeps using the same profile join perfectly elsewhere in the drawing.

Perfectly in line, perhaps--but are the walls actually Mitered? ( versus butt join, etc. )

(a small but important factor with wall joins and the way sweeps behave.)

 

If mitering the walls does not fix the sweep joins, then it could be something wrong with the profile,

as mentioned in the other reply.

 

You can also try using Modify sweep returns.
