Revit Architecture 2009 

I have two barrel vaulted ceilings intersecting at right angles.  To create these barrel vaults I made an in-place family for the ceiling that includes the solid and void extrusions for both barrels.  I then cut the voids out of the respective solids and it seems to create the proper geometry.  However in RCP there are way too many lines showing up.

 How can I clean up the intersection?

 I've tried experimenting, it seems the ceiling will cleanup if the vaults are the same width, but once one is a different size, they do not clean up.

Nice roof.
How about using the 'linework' tools and just make the unwanted lines 'invisible'. This is a view specific solution and can be done in any view.

Thanks, that's definitly better than masking and using detail lines.

Now, here's another twist, the ceiling is a going to be a linear wood panel grill system simular to this from Rulon:

So to represent this, we are using a line hatch, unfortunately at this intersection, things don't look so good, any ideas?

You could just use detail lines instead of fill patterns?
