    Floor Not Joining Wall Correctly

    Title says it all. See the examples.

    I created the floor, extended into core of wall. The linework is correct, but my wall still passes through the floor.

    So I joined them, but when I do this the top layer (plywood deck) doesn't go into the wall core, just the joist.

    How can I join them and still have the top layer go into the wall core? I know I can do it manually in every section, is that the only option?

    Your plywood would have to be part of the structural core to go all the way through...my guess its set to a finish outside of the core...

      The plywood layer should have higher priority(Layer function) than the wall layer. Also core layers should be defined correctly. If defined correctly, joining should work fine. Revit doesn't allways automatcally join walls and floors for whatever reason. So manually joining is often needed.

        I would only add layers to the core that are really part of it

          Bingo. That was it.

          I could be wrong, but since the stud layer of the wall is in the core, then the plywood would have to be in the core to cut through it, right? All the other layers priority won't cut the core, will they?

            If the plywood of the stud wall was part of the core...then you would still have the same issue where the floor would not connect to the stud wall....

            Kinda funny...I am having a class on all this stuff next week at our user group meeting... I am finding some people putting all the layers of a wall into the core...which drives our structural folk insane when they link in our model.

              I meant if the stud of the wall is in the core (which it is), then the plywood of the floor would need to be in the core to cut the stud in the wall. Just like you originally said. It worked perfect. I'm just wondering why dalmore wouldn't put the plywood of the floor in the core.

              This is starting to sound like a Dr. Suess book. :laugh:

                I wouldn't either. It's just the way we build I guess. In Holland the working order would be:

                Walls level 1.
                Beams
                Walls level 2.
                Plywood floor.

                  Well we don't do it like that here, Mr. Holland. :laugh:

                  Our mezzanines are built:
                  Walls level one
                  Beams
                  Plywood
                  Walls level 2

                  The entire floor system is built and the second floor wall's bottom plate sits on the plywood. At least that's how I think it's done.

                  Off to call my framing contractor to verify. :laugh:

                  Yep, that's how it's done.
