This video shows how to use parameter information to find a wall type.
- [Narrator] In this video, I'm going…to show how to convert this workspace…from modeling walls to modeling floors…by making a few adjustments.…Revit requires a closed loop of lines to draw a floor.…Rooms automatically create a closed loop…of lines, making them a great tool…for automating placement of floors.…There are a few differences…between placing floors and walls.…Here we have the two different nodes,…the one on the left is for placing a wall,…the one on the right is for placing a floor.…The wall requires the curve, height, level, and type,…where the floor requires the curve, floor type, and a level.…
There's no height requirement for a floor,…because a floor's height is based…on its structural thickness.…Looking at the overall workspace,…we can remove the portion that we use…to find the wall's height,…and all of the portions that we use to be able…to offset the wall's lines,…because we're not dealing with the center-line issue…that we had with the walls when placing floors.…We want the floor's boundary to match the room's boundary,…
