making an odd shaped wall

Recommended Posts

I would say no.  This is as close as I could get.  Unfortunately, the wall tool is not really 3D.  1151477511_ScreenShot2018-12-12at12_22_38PM.thumb.png.7aa6121d4087c1a28aa817af3bc91c7e.png

I was able to get this close -

You can't quite make the end point. I'm not sure you'd want to overlap the points because it may start to misbehave.

Start with a wall the correct length in plan, switch to a 3d view and double click on the wall. This will give you a tool to move or add points.

I figured it out too.  You create two shapes and fit wall peaks to one of them.  And base of wall to another.

I'd be curious if the resulting wall has two overlapping points at the pointed end....

It's pretty pointy at the end!  As long as you line it up in plan.  Not sure how Markdd got it to work.

okay looks good- Here is the area I need to make one wall.  I currently have two walls to make the shape above.  Is it possible to join the lower portion the left side of the wall to turn left into another wall?

See example
