Walls ballistic

Recommended Posts

Frequently, when trying to connect walls, a wall will go ballistic and extend infinitely in both directions. I then have to delete the wall and draw a new one. Seems like the wall tool has some problems and would like to know any work-a-rounds or techniques to keep this from happening.

Regards,

Might be no consolation, but these sorts of problem seem to be mainly fixed in VW 2008 (most recent build). The only workaround I'm aware of is as you described: delete and redraw the offending wall. FWIW, if memory serves, this particular issue seems to crop up most often after the fit walls to roof command has been run, and sometimes manually reshaping the wall(s) (using the 3d reshape cursor) helps to prevent it.

I have VW 12.5 and spent many, many hours with what sounds like the same wall problem. Check to see if your auto join walls is turned on in preferences under the vectorwork title bar. That solved my problems.

Sorry, I left out that when auto join walls is turned on, I have all kinds of wall joining problems. When I turned it off I had no wall join problems.

You'll see the problem sometimes when a new break is trying to form over and old break. Try using the Wall Break Heal tool over the offending walls end then try and rejoin.

This happens to me quite often! its like there is a big in the wall? like you say you have to re-draw the whole wall again which is obviously really frustrating and more importantly time consuming. Any vectorworks solution would be most appreciated!
