Wall/Roof Component geometry/position settings

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I'm just trying to set a cup of wall/roof details.


I have 2 questions


1) between roof and wall components VW allows us to set the connection between a specified roof component and a part of a wall. But sometimes I need to set a  roof component between a specified wall component not detectable with the wall style components options. In fact, if I have more than 3 wall components (internal, main component, external) I can't select a specific option.


2) if I need to decide the visualization order of component inside a wall or a roof, how can I do this?


Thank you and a good work

If I undersdant correctly, well, the key is to use the same fill in both components, otherwise, they will not apper joined in the section viewport.

Off course, I did it. In fact some component are composed. The problem is in the middle. I need to control the stack position

I managed to solve the problem after a while. We need to pay attention to two things: 1) good connection settings in style 2) the roof must be generated automatically from the wall selection.


After that it's enough if you set the wall height up of the roof.. even manually.


BUT.. there os another problem.


How can I resolve this? I need to work on the stack component style between wall and slab to hide the grey element you can see on attachment
