Is it possible to join these four walls?

Question

I simply want to join the four walls on the left, so that in top/plan view they look like what's on the right.

 

Is this in fact possible?

I couldn't get it to work directly but I did find a possible workaround depending upon your wall alignment. Add a small diagonal wall and join everything to it.

I always tumble over these Situations as my clients always join

Walls of different thickness, slightly off axis centers.

 

So every improvement to VW Wall Joining in such situations highly welcome.

Ah, cunning.

 

But when you zoom in is the geometry quite correct? eg on my example I end up with this:

The solution to this prob953632331_walljoin.thumb.gif.fac04b0de3bcb3024e1631cc7adebc56.gif lem is to create a small pillar and join the walls to that.

 

I tried this and it wasn't happy - see attached screen recording.

 

(Same happens whether I use T or L type join tool)

That's very weird. I did exactly what you did using your file and it worked fine the first time. However after I changed to a 3d view and then back to Top/Plan again it started to misbehave and I kept getting partial or full cap lines on certain joins. I think there might be a bug with Jonathan's method. It looks a lot like the problems I was having with wall protrusions that I detailed in a recent thread.

 

I couldn't get my method to work either with your geometry.

Even if the 'pillar' method joining works ... I don't think it can deal with a junction between multi-component walls can it?

^ That is what I thought too.

 

Imagine different Wall Thicknesses and different Wall Stiles that you

want to join in a special order.

Like when one of the 4 edges is an outside and you need an insulation Layer.

Yes exactly.

 

Although I've mostly given up trying to use wall components in general; it's too much hassle trying to get them to work for the kind of buildings I do.

I always get funny Designs like this.

That is where I prefer my other BIM by Solids Modeling approach.

(Should have used butted instead of mitered joining here of course)
