Design SuiteJoining wall components


Tool set

Component Join

Building Shell

The Component Join tool joins the selected components between two straight wall segments; components within pre-existing joined wall segments can also be joined. There are three modes for joining wall components.




T Join

Extends or shortens one wall component segment until it intersects with a second wall component segment

L Join

Joins the closest ends of two wall components to create a corner

Capped Join

Applies a capped join to the component being joined

Components can be joined to the edge of walls instead of specific components in Capped Join mode.

Normally, when you join walls with the Wall Join tool, and the Auto-join walls preference is enabled, the components automatically join correctly. A core component must be set. (See Joining walls.)

The Component Join tool is useful for adjusting components that did not join as desired when walls were connected, even in complex wall joins.
