    All you have to do is model the soffit to the "face of core" and if both the wall gyp and the ceiling are the same material you won't have the double line.Soffit Wrapping?-soffits.png

    I tried that. But your confidence and write up there convinced me to retry altogether. And the quirky thing was that if the wall and ceiling were already joined, changing the wall gyp to the same material didn't work, but if I unjoined and then rejoined them, it worked! The order of steps really matters in a lot of things in Revit lol

    Thanks all for the help.

    That gets rid of the line in section but not in plan/rcp/3d.

    I dont even use Pick Lines OR do the face of Core, thing.

    When im designing, i almost always model the ceilings first, and do the bulkheads / walls later.
    Then after the bulkheads and walls (which are now coplanar), i edit the ceiling sketches and push the sketch lines in the 5/8".
    Then i use Join geometry.

    Yes, it means that in RCP, two lines exist. But those lines are 5/8" apart. which- even at 1/4"- arent legible through the lineweights that exist for the face of the bulkhead. When lineweights are turned off? Sure, they exist. Thats okay (to me).

    The lines DONT exist in Elevation, since they arent coplanar anymore. Thats way more important to me, since THOSE lines are 4 or more inches apart. And that definitely WOULD show up in any drawing.

    Yeah - agree - the OP was about the lines in RCP.

    I thought I had a way with the GWB turned under the metal stud but I haven't used it in years (not worth the trouble IMO) and when I try and recreate the wall type I'm getting errors.

    edit: I found the wall type in an old project but it doesn't do what I thought it did - probably why I abandoned it 5 years ago! LOL

    I'm with Aaron on this one. We (or I at least) do the same thing. Although having a sweep at the bottom of a bulkhead wall type sounds intriguing.

    Soffit wall needs to be set to Wrap on ends....but I cheat a bit if my core material is different and offset the ceiling sketch line the thickness of the gyp bd.

    Wraps fine in section and no lines in the RFP.

    But I only do this if there is a section or detail...no point in doing it everywhere

    I second that and doesn't matter what order the join. Ceiling to wall or wall to ceiling.
