    Wall Structure - Diferent Height per Material

    Hello There,

    I have a wall type that consist of 190mm Block wall + Sduds + Plasterboard and I need the Studs + Plasterboard to have a different height than the block wall.

    In the edit assembly I already Unlocked both the studs + Plasterboard in the section view and left the block wall unmodified.

    The wall works like a charm allowing me to give block wall and Studs + Plasterboard different heights, but when I "Attach top" to a slab/roof the whole wall goes up and it doesn't let me change their heights anymore as I did before.

    Is there a way to allow a wall to be attached to a Slab/roof and have independent heights per material or I'm asking to much ?...

    Thanks In advance...

    Note: I'm attaching the before and after screenshots of the wall for your info.Before (Non Attached).JPGAfter (Attached).JPG

    Hi guapea;

    Try creating a Stacked wall: one of it contains the two types of walls you show in your image and you can give it he height that you need in the edit structure properties , the other one is just like the second one in your attached image a simple wall much more high the the first one, hope this helps

      Thanks Andres,

      I tried but I couldn't make the wall work:

      - How can I make a stacked wall to work when both wall types have to be side by side ?
      - How can I control which one goes all the way up ( attached to slab/roof ) and the other one up to certain height I need?

      Thanks again for your time an Help.:thumbsup:

        If you do it as a stacked wall, you'd need to do it as wall1=blockwork and wall2=blockwork+lining.
        But you can do the same in a normal wall as well.

        Edit Wall type>Go to edit structure.
        Switch preview to Section.
        Under Modify Vertical Structure (Section Preview Only), Select Modify
        In the preview select the top edges of the lining layers and click on the Lock icon to unlock.
        Now you'll be able to control the heights individually.


        Alternatively, you can add a Reveal in the Modify Vertical Structure... to cut out the lining layers at a certain height, but the method above gives you more flexibility.

          How about just aligning the main section to the top, that will leave the other part adjustable.

            Hi maciejwypych, the Reveal in the Modify Vertical Structure is a good idea, anyway if you read the guapea's post, actually he already try the method you describe above " Edit the top edges of the lining layers and click on the Lock icon to unlock", his issue is more like when he try to "Attach top" the wall, I'm still thinking the the stacked wall is much more flexible but maybe there are another way to do this!!, regards

              Hi guapea, as maciejwypych already say: "if you do it as a stacked wall, you'd need to do it as wall1=blockwork and wall2=blockwork+lining" that is pretty much the way I'll try to do this, regards

                I would go the other way, and make them separate walls horizontally. Block alone = 1 wall. Stud and plaster/board wall is another wall. Join geometry.

                Much better and easier way to handle it.

                  I agree. Model it like it gets built. Different trades will construct those walls.
