Hi-

 

I have an angled wall with a sweep at the top for a parapet cap.  I added the brick corbelling and cap by editing the profile of the wall type.  But, as you can see, the angled wall is throwing a wrench in things.  Is there a way to make the cap and corbelling wrap around?  The only thing I can think of is that I would have to remove the corbelling/cap from the wall type profile, and make them separately modeled sweeps.  I have tried to change all the "wrapping" options, without luck.

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

I don't seem to have a problem with this - is it your wall junctions?

Hmmm....I attached an image of my walls in plan.  Is that where one would notice a wall junction issue?

 I added the top sweeps after the wall was already in place.  Would that have any affect on things?

I think that this is where your problem lies.  If I look at your first image it seems as if the walls don't clean up properly.  I dont see a problem in the plan.  Have you overidden or edited it in some way?  Try a new trial non-ninety degree corner with the same wall type and see if you replicate the problem.

That might be my issue.  I tried a new sample wall, and the top cleaned up perfectly.  I had edited my wall profiles to insert the inset brick paneled wall.....perhaps that altered something.
