Stepped Wall Tool

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use the stepped wall tool for the first time. This will be a very useful tool. However, I am not implementing the tool correctly as I have unpredictable results.

I have created a site model. I used the wall tool and created a custom wall to depict a new fence line which will follow changing grades. I want to use this for presentation purposes only, and not a final design for the fencing detail. I inserted the wall along three sections of property. However, one of the wall/fences is not following the grade. The wall steps down when in fact it should be stepping up with the contour? I have played around with some of the setting but again with unpredictable and incorrect results.

Should each wall section be placed seperartely? What is the process for using the tool? What should I be looking for to get correct results?

Hmm - it's difficult to work out what's going on without seeing the issue. Did you send the wall to the surface of the model?

Can you post the file? Or you are welcome to send it to me offlist - tamsin@vectorworks-training.co.uk
