The easiest way to work around this (which occurs due to the mitered wall join at corners) is to create a Temporary Shape and us it as the "Fit To" object in the Fit Walls to Objects command. The shape must be Solid and must completely cover the portion of the wall you wish to reshape. P

Next best option might be, in a 3d view double click each wall and manually edit the wall peaks as per screen shot attached.

psm, Using the the Edit Workspace command, search for the Fit Walls command, and if it's available you can add it to your workspace.

 

Boh, yes that is one way to skin this cat!

agree with @Boh bit of a pain. If you can access "fit walls to objects" it's worth mentioning the bods at VW allow you to fit internal external or centre which would solve the problem. Love fit walls to objects. Saves much time.D

This situation is just unavoidable with the way VW works right now.  Peter's first suggestion is actually pretty close to how you would conceptualize the walls if you imagine the rafters having a seat cut on top of wall plates, but normally a framer would not do that on the gable walls, their sloping top plates would actually be lower at the outside corner.

 

David is suggesting that if you fit walls at the interior edge, the side walls would be higher than the gable walls at the corner instead of lower, but there will still be an anomaly at the miter.

 

But since you don't have fit walls to objects, none of that would be of any use to you.  However, you could join the corners using "capped join" mode, and then you won't have a miter.  But there will be an extra vertical line at the corner on the exterior, unless you are viewing in OpenGL or Renderworks and your textures are properly assigned and aligned.

Actually it is. You will need to add it to your workspace though through the Workspace Editor.

@psm Hi I will often place a wall on class Wall Over and turn off for 2D, sometimes you have a window in a wall over and you want the lower one to show and not the top one.

I did this in this file and the line does not show in hidden line as long as you duplicate the wall so you get an exact match.

Thanks ! Markdd!  your are correct I found a workaround for the exterior wall but the interior were going to be tricky.

I added to the work space and Presto.

thanks to you and all who chimed in.
