          Are you having trouble getting the ends of the walls to clean up with the elliptical wall? Or am I misunderstanding your question?

          You can drag the ends of the straight walls until they intersect the elliptical wall, and when you let go, they should clean up automatically. If they don't, make sure you don't have the straight wall ends set to "disallow join". Select the straight wall, right-click near the end grip, and make sure that it doesn't have an option to "allow join." If it does have that option, select it.

            Sry if i Disturb you ...... but i tried to split the Ellipse and create a wall by pick line but didn`t select .
            I did the Elliptical wall by creating a spline and from massing (mass in place) and assign a wall to the extruded Ellipse by picking the face. Is it true???

              Ellipses are just a pain in the arse, as David Light so nicely put it Have a look at this video from his blog, and also have a look at some of the blog posts linked below.

                Thx rosskirby for ur Interest
                Sry rosskirby u didn`t got my point
                first......I want to know the proper way for creating Elliptical Walls intersects with walls
                second.....if i did the elliptical wall by creating it by massing how can i use trimming and split to open in that elliptical wall as on may Dwg i tried to split by face and trimming doesn`t work
                Third......my straight walls end when intersects with elliptical not clean up automatically.

                    As you've already experienced, elliptical walls created by a mass can not be trimmed.... Best option IMO is to create the "ellipse" as a series of arcs, which will be trimable, and also a lot easier to document for construction. Good luck with it, and welcome to the forum.
