Split level vaulted ceiling wall issue

Recommended Posts

Post edited per Solver's request:

I have created a simple split-level concept plan (attached) with vaulted ceiling on the main level and am having trouble with how the generated interior/exterior wall surfaces display on the wall separating the main, upper and lower levels.  Pics 3 & 4 are with simple flat ceiling on the main level; however, Pics 1 & 2 are with Flat Ceiling Over This Room UNCHECKED and Use Soffit Surface for Ceiling CHECKED.  From the Full Camera view, you can see that the wall changes from interior to exterior at upper level.  Any hints on how to fix this?  I'm sure it's something simple that I'm overlooking.  Thx in advance for your help.

Please post images directly -- no need to make a PDF of an image. This makes it easier for others as an image shows in the forum.

 

Pictures of the plan are rarely helpful, but attaching the plan file (close Pro first) will help.

 

and ...

 

I see you said Pro 2020 --, but you can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on, then see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Eric, good news is that I edited the post per your suggestions (including attaching the plan itself).  Bad news is that I tried the fix which I THINK you recommended on the Roof dialog of the Wall Specs for the wall separating the main, upper and lower levels - i.e., I checked Lower Wall Type if Split by Butting Roof option and for the drop-down below that I selected Interior 6.  Seems to have made  no change at all to the results.  Any other suggestions?  Thx.

Thank you much!  I've never paid attention to the Lower Wall Type When Split by Butting Roof nor used it!  Now I know what it does!  Again, thank you.
