How Can I Stop AEC Walls From Doing a Cleanup When Drawing an Extension to an Existing Building

Applies To:

Caddie 16 and above

Question:

I am adding an extension to an existing building, but the walls cleanup (merge) with those of the existing building. How can I stop this happening?

Answer:

Walls only clean-up witt other walls in the same Cleanup group. So all that needs to be done is to create a new Cleanup group and assign the NEW walls to that group.

Using AEC Style Manager from the AEC menu go to the section as shown below:

 

 wallcleanup1

 

Select the wall Cleanup Group Definitions text and create a New group with whatever name you want.

Once done just reassign the new walls to this group in object properties and the walls will no longer merge.
