I'm trying to do the best method possible to create a gypsum soffit.  The soffit should be at 7'-0" a.f.f. and should have a vertical surface to deck of either side of the soffit.  I've tried these methods before to try and see it correctly in elevation AND reflected ceiling plan but I always see a double line, as shown in the attached images, in either elevation or reflected ceiling plan.

 A.)  A compound ceiling (metal stud w/ gypsum) with the vertical walls at 7'-0" to deck.       - This resulted in a double line being shown in elevation, even if I joined the elements.  The line is showing the depth of the ceiling (which can't wrap the gypsum board vertically)

B.)  A basic ceiling (gypsum) with the vertical walls at 7'-0" to deck      - This resulted in a double line being shown in reflected ceiling plan, even if I joined the elements.  The line is showing the depth of the vertical wall.  Maybe this is because the surface pattern on the basic ceiling is transparent (which I can't change) or maybe because it doesn't have enough depth to hide in the RCP.

What is the best method to model this and minimize the work of hiding the walls, or making lines invisible?

 

Thanks!

The most simple way to deal with this would be to use the lineweight overide and change the linetype to invisible in the view.  I have had the same issues and spent a lot of time trying to figure it out and that is the easiest way out.

If the two corners line up exactly and you join geometry then the lines don't show.  See image.

When I join them they don't clean up like your image shows.  Is this a material thing?  What is the material of your wall and compound ceiling?

 

Thanks!

The ceiling part is a plain compound ceiling and the wall part is just one layer of plasterboard.

You might want to look and make sure that your wall board is outside the core boundries on of the wall structure and that they are the same finish layer so that they clean up correctly.
