Fit Walls to Objects

Recommended Posts

Are there any tricks for trimming walls to roofs, where there are more than one object on the roof layer.

For example I have a roof that I want wanting to extend my walls to. However there are also old roof objects which are classed as removed.

There are also beams etc that get in the way.

I had hoped that by turning these other classes off that the walls would trim to the visible roof.

I know I can create new layers and then move the roof there, trim and then move back.

Seems like a roundabout way to achieve something simple.

I understand it only trims to the Design layers so if yo want it to go to the roof only then it has to be on its own Design Layer. 

Left has roof and block on same Design layer. Right has the Wall and the Block on the same Design Layer.

I create layers for upper and lower wall trims, and just copy the objects to those layers I want to trim to.  Not really a big problem, you don't have to move things back and forth that way.
