One wall is a 6" wall and the other is a 4" wall. It is a "T" intersection. I have stretched the 4" wall through the 6" wall, but it doesn't self heal, and I don't know how to trim it to the 6" wall. I stretched it short of the 6" wall and
tried to extend it, but that didn't work either.
Obviously I am doing something wrong or not seeing the correct tool to use.
thanks for any direction you can offer.
It seems HD needs some wall trimming tools. As an architect drawing walls and inserting doors and windows
is an important part of our drafting. In my case as a newby to HD I think I'm probably not doing something in the right sequence or have some box, checked or unchecked somewhere.
So a question to other HD users....walls or no walls? Do you use them?
I have just been playing around and cannot recreate the problem you describe.
Humour me and try the following:
draw a wall (any width)
draw another wall (any width) perpendicular to the first without intersecting - somewhere in the middle
select the second wall and hit command+e
then click on the first wall
Ah sod it, I've made a gif... hope it's clear.
Same thing. Just select the one which is too long and extend it to the one it should be intersecting.jmartinarch wrote:Okay, I got a little excited. What about cleaning up crossing walls?
I'll let you go back to work after this one.
Unless you are hoping for a proper 4 way intersection. That isn't yet available, I have always worked with two walls running into one (from either side). In this case, you would extend one wall into the other and then duplicate it on the other side. Hope that's clear (i fear about as clear as mud...).
I experimented and found mirroring to work. A crossing window and a click in the middle would be nice though.
Thanks for the help.
They do have some bugs that need worked out, like the four-way intersection, but the convenience of them generally outweighs the inconveniences they introduce. There are other issues (like when a wall needs to change width along it's length) with them that i have encountered, but they can usually be worked around with a bit of trial and error.
I still have to use AutoCAD LT for a few projects, so i cannot say that i cannot imagine life without walls, but a vast majority of my drafting is done in HD and walls do make things so much faster (most of the time).
