    Cut Wall from a wall

    Hello,
    I have a basic question. I wanna cut outside of sphere like walls, based on the ortogonal wall. I wanna keep everything inside, and get rid of everything outside that ortogonal wall.
    I suppose simple boolean, but I can't find it enywhre.
    Hope I was clear.
    Thank you in advance,
    Pejic Petar

    Hi,
    I assume spheres are volumes, so put all the spheres in the same volume, and then select bondaries you want with line tool, select the sketch, and create a void. It shoul cut all the spheres.
    If not, use the cut the geometry command, select the void then the spheres.
    Hope it helps.
    best,
    Julien

      Little confused.

      You want to keep the areas where the straight walls meet the sphear objects?

      If that is correct, that's going to be an interesting little task. Except for the bottom left corner of the image, most of the sphears are shorter than the wall height. So in that area the boolean flips. Do you need the top of the walls to curve in 3d as well?

        No, I wanna keep part inside of those wall, not intersection with them. They should form the celing of the rooms.

          pjetrus,

          you should work with volumes, and in the same way I've described above, use voids to cut what you don't want to keep.
          "By face tools" will be the next step, to get the ceilling done.
          But this complex result may had a strange behavior.
          Maybe a solution with adaptive components, but this is not my area! :banghead:

            I´d use a mass for this, and then use the "By Face Tool":
            1. Create the mass
            2. Model all the spheres
            3. Create a void to cut away everyting on the outside of the building
            4. Load mass to project
            5. Use "By Face" to create the wall and ceilings

            Hope that helps :beer:

              Is this what the underside would need to look like? and would the top side need to look similar?

                Yes, something like that.. Only I kept top parts of the spheres, not the bottom.
                I was doing it with the masses and than did a wall by face.. I was thinking about a boolean for cutting, because I came from ArchiCAD world.. I was thinking I was doing something wrong, because doing it with masses and wall by face, I was getting error mesages how revit has to unjoin walls, so model is not very good at the end.
                Let me show you what I mean:


                Also I would like to know why can't I use attach top command of wall to attach it to another wall. (I would like to attach some interior walls to that sphere structure.)
                Thank you all for replays, this is great forum.

                  I guess you'd better use floor by face or roof by face. In that way, you will be able to attach walls to floor/roof.That the way this command works.
