Gap above door

Recommended Posts

I have a door and a window in place. The window fits the full opening of the wall but the door shows a gap above the top of the door.

I have opened the window specification  and the door specifications and the both looks similar. There is insulation wrap showing above the door and I wish to show brickwork. Tried changing most of the settings but cannot seems to correct it. Please help. Plan file attached.

This is what I did -see picture - setting in framing tab -if there is still any gap go to the jamb tab and reduce the top width setting.

After looking at your plan, I saw that the custom wall types you made through out the plan are customized wrong which is causing the unwanted outcomes. Open the Wall Specification Dialog - Wall Types and properly place space, in the dialog between Interior layers and exterior layers. Comonly one assigns A SINGLE LAYER as your "Structural" layer unlike what you did. Read, carefully the Reference Manual section on Customizing Walls using the Wall Specification Dialog.
