    Chimney Walls

    I'm having a slight issue. See attached:

    The wall behind the chimney is part of the main wall. I attached the top of the wall to the roof, but this little nub won't play nice.

    The roof profile does go around the chimney. If I don't do that, the wall acts like it should, but then the roof is inside the chimney.

    Editing the wall's profile doesn't work, either. Well, I guess it would if I edited it up to the bottom of the roof. I don't really want to do that because I want them attached so if I move the roof, it updates automatically.

    Ideas?
    Also, when I tried to add the wall to enclose the back of the chimney, it wouldn't clean up with the adjacent walls. How does everyone else do chimneys?

    I would not worry about the roof in this case. Just build the walls of the chimney, and then, make a rectangular opening in the roof, which is the projection in plan view of the walls of the chimney. If the slope of the roof changes later, the rectangular opening will adjust to the slope, and the walls will pass through.

    Is this the Bonanza Ranch?

      Nah, this isn't Bonanza! That's being revised. I'm starting on it again tomorrow. I'm just messing around with a tiny, tiny house.

      So, how do I take care of the main wall? Edit the profile? That little nub is part of the main wall.

        Why don't you treat the walls of the chimney as independent from the main exterior wall? You need to split these segments from the rest. By doing that you treat the chimney as a separate object, so you don't have to deal with Edit Profile.

          Bingo! Okay, that makes sense. Then, at the top I can just paint the surface? cool

            Set the height of the main wall to the top of the chimney. Create the opening in the roof as desired. Attach the wall to the roof. When I'm correct it should look like you want it.

              Ya know, now that you mention it, that should work perfectly. I didn't even catch that the "nub" was at the roof line level.
              Sweet, two solutions for one problem. :thumbsup:

                  You don't deal with chimneys!!! BLASPHEMY! You are destroying one of the sacred elements of architecture; The Hearth! :P

                  The one time I dealt with chimneys I just made the chimney a generic model and placed it in the wall and profiled the roof to go around it. Of course, this was a long time ago and I wasn't worried about material take offs... :shifty:

                  ALso, tiny tiny house?! I see 2 stories. If this is a tiny house, then what adjective is used to describe my 1200SF house?
