Making you First Wall Type !
This post should be titled - Making Your First Wall Type Thanks to CADDIGEST for posting this tutorial ! Making compound walls is one small step for REVIT, one BIG step on your way to Building Information Modelling (BIM). Ahhhhh, it's been a while but I do remember learning how to make my first wall type. It is the first significant step where you say, 'This is pretty cool' and not hard to learn either. Then the escalator starts to move......and the creative thinking kicks in. Even better news is once you learn how to make a wall type, (and you will) floors and roofs follow the same basic rules ! Here's a CADCLIP to get you going. Making your First Wall Type Right click the link above and 'save target as..' to download the CADCLIP. * I should also point out the 'Sample Height' field at the upper right of the Edit Assembly dialog box is for the wall 'Preview' within this dialog box. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome.
