Wall Cleanup - How to extend finishes to other than wall style


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to extend materials in a wall style? I have used the wrap tool, which works great, but I have a situation where a metal stud wall abuts a CMU wall and I need for the drywall to cover the face os the CMU...  I have tried component trim, etc., but can't seem to find a way to accomplish this.

@PatStanford The wall add feature has been available for quite a few releases.

 

@Shortnort I think the add wall end cap may not be working for you in this case because you have a T-Join between the 2 walls.  Can you post a drawing with the two walls and doors.

If the interior finish is the same on the exterior wall is the interior, you can use the new wall closure feature in VW 2022 to wrap the component into the window opening.  In the video, I started with the interior wall unjoined so you can see what's happening.  The join between needs some improvement but it gets the point across.

Thank you.  The problem arises in the fact that the CMU has no finishes - just a bare CMU wall, thus no wrap is possible for the CMU.

I will try end wrapping the stud wall that abuts the CMU wall and see if I can get it to cover exposed CMU.

 

Thank you for the assist.

So the exterior in you original screenshot wall is made up of more than one wall object?

This is quick test with two unjoined Walls using Wall End Cap in Add + Clip modes:

But without seeing your file it's hard to know if this will work for you (i.e. with the storefront)
