    Try creating BOTH walls from a Mass. They should join better than trying to join a "normal" wall to a "Mass" face-wall.

    The other Mass will just be a vertical plane. Give it a try, and post back.

      Hello

      Thank you for replying. I tried see attached. When I make the whole building as a mass it works great, but when I make individual walls as a mass or planes (see attached) doesn't work at all- the walls can't be joined!!! It is really upseting. I love complex designs and I think MASSING its great stuff but there are some limitations with massing. Must be another way I am sure...

        If you're creating a wall from a mass, you should create the mass in the shape you want the wall to have. And you should not delete the hosting mass (one of the walls in your testfile is missing the mass to update to).
        As for interior walls attaching to the star-shaped mass: create the exterior as a roof and look at this thread (it's a long thread though, so may take some time)

          Okay, dumb question here. I've never had a need for slanted walls, so I never really read any of the threads. :hide: Now I have slanted walls for an observation tower attached to a house.

          a. as this post states, there's no easy way to join the slanted wall by face with a "normal" wall??
          b. Windows and doors still go in vertically? They don't take the slant of the wall?

            I have a monument sign project that has a slanted wall by mass face joined to two vertical profiled walls, it worked fine. The slanted wall does not have any openings, however.

              Should say the joining had to be in a certain order but I don't remember the specifics.

                Dude, what kind of help is that?? :laugh:

                Just Kidding. I'll mess around with the join order. At least I know it can work...somehow. I'm thinking I'll leave that until last. I still have another 20,000 square feet to get through. :laugh:

                  Well the order was either pick mass wall first or pick regular wall first if it doesn't work then smarter brains than me will have to help you. I can check it out more tomorrow at the office

                    The trick is to use the join tool. That should join all walls together regardless if it's all mass walls or a mass wall and a normal wall.

                    I know someone that went as far as to create the walls in Archicad (since slanting, joining and adding slanted windows are a two click process) and exporting it as IFC. It seems to work well, but I have never tested that.
