# Get wall as one surface to get geometry lines

Hi all, I have created a model and tried to get the surface and line geometry of the walls in a space. However, when there is another wall added not within the space but connected to the wall, the surfaces split.

What I need is to get the lines of the entire wall.
From the diagram below, I have a space with 4 walls but with 5 different surfaces.

I have tried to get the line/curve geometry of all the walls but I kept receiving this error “Unable to create Line. Points are likely coincident”.

Any tips on pasting codes? I can’t seem to post my code properly. I’ve uploaded my python script below.

Is there a simpler method to acquire the geometry lines of a space though?

Thank you very much!

My code for creating new lines is as shown below.
