Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Building walls from floor edges, part of Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture.
Let's continue our work on the Model by Face forms.…In the last two movies, we looked at the Floors by Face and the Walls by Faces.…We are going to continue on the walls but refocus our attention over here on…the townhouse facades, because the walls are a little bit more intricate.…I am looking at this file here called Townhouse Walls.…And if you zoom in, you kind of start to see some of the problems. We've got…some double walls there. We've got strange conditions here. Things don't join up so well.…So we could spend a lot of time selecting the walls, using Edit Profile, and…trying to fix the shapes and get them to match up correctly,…but we'd probably still end up a little bit frustrated.…
What I want to do instead is something that seems a little bit drastic.…I am going to select one of these walls, right-click, and choose Select All…Instances > Visible in View.…Now, I'll zoom out a touch, and you can see that's pretty much all of my townhouse walls.…Now, maybe for early schematic design, those serve me well,…
