Using Revit 2014
Hi all, I can't for the life of me get my walls to join in a nice clean corner...My lower/foundation walls which are just one material work fine, but my upper floor, which is a multi-part wall, leaves a gap. The upper level wall is a wall system composed of metal studs on the interior, with an insulated metal panel attached on the exterior. The stud layer stops at the floor level, but the panels extend below that.
I am able to extend the walls beyond the corner and they will overlap each other, but when I tell them to join each other (either by dragging the nodes or using trim/extend or using join) they leave this gap - visible in 3D and plan views. Also, it appears they've added their own jog at the interior corners when I tell them to join (which disappears when I pull them farther back or overlap them). I've turned allow join on and off, and tried to fool it a few other ways with no solution in sight.
Even if I change wall types this happens, so I feel like that's not the problem. The only thing I can think of is it's related to the beam, as the beam stops at the top of the CMU, and there's no problem joining the CMU corners.
Any ideas? Photo attached shows upper level's reaction to my trying to join it.

Several things affect wall joins.
- Are these stacked walls? Stacked walls are great for initial placement but we always unstack so we can adjust individual segments.
- Other elements - walls in particular - can affect the join. Work in a plan view and temporarily isolate the two walls, then use the join edit button.
- If walls do not start/stop at the same elevation, you can have problems. Sometimes you have to split a wall horizontally making the connecting portion the same height.
- Wall sketches are notorius for causing problems. Vertical splits in a wall to seperate sketched areas can help solve this.
