I know that certain layers of a wall can be adjusted to extend above or beyond other wall layers (like sheathing or siding extending lower than the wall core) and I thoght it should be done directly in the wall type properties - edit structure settings box.  But another member suggested that this process be done in a section view using the "cut profile" tool under the view tab.  I seemed to get this to work, but the changes are not seen in a 3d view.  (the wall siding graphics/poche still extends over the whole wall even though I have changed the profile)  The changes are also not apparent in the section view while in the edit structure portion of the wall type properties.  Am I missing something?  I am working in ver. 2011  Thanks.

From your HELP menu:

Use the Cut Profile tool to change the shape of elements that are cut in a view, such as roofs, floors, walls, and the layers of compound structures. The tool is available in plan, RCP, and section views. Changes made to the profile are view-specific; that is, the element's 3D geometry and its appearance in other views does not change.

I want to add that cut profile is only a 2D tool and is single view specific.  It does not modify the object it 3D.

Thanks for the redundant info.

Perhaps I should have worded my question differently.

The solution to my problem (needing some wall layers to extend further down than others in the same type assembly) is as follows:

1) After selecting the wall to be modified, open up the wall type properties dialog box

2) Click the "Edit" button to edit structure

3) Expand the dialog box to see the preview, making sure you select the section view

4) Click the "Modify" button

5) Move the pointer over the base (or the top) of any layer in the section preview--one or multiple layers can be unlocked from the others.

6) Now, back in the project, when selected, the wall will offer another specific arrow at the base (or top) of the wall, allowing the user to drag the unlocked wall layers a custom distance up or down, independent of the rest of the restrained wall

Note:  The unlocked layers need to be adjacent, I believe.

 

cheers bitches
