  • Hi

    as per my understanding, when you try to redesign or re-detail the combined walls and generate detailed drawing, it is showing error.

    i would suggest you following,

    The marked column and wall are overlapping each other. i would suggest you to split the walls at column face. Columns can be modelled as pier in E-tabs. this will help to avoiding increasing the stiffness overlapping members. if you model wall up to column face (avoid overlapping of members) will give correct analysis result .

    pls try this and check the output.
