While a basic wall in Revit Architecture 2015 is made of the same material throughout, a stacked wall is made up of differing horizontal layers. For example, it may consist of an air gap or insulation at a certain height throughout a building. As far as the software is concerned, a stacked wall is formed by laying one basic wall on top of another, though you may need to adjust the offsets between layers. Learn more about stacked walls in this online video.
…As we've already discussed, walls are a system family.…And system family just means that it's built…into the system and it has fixed parameters.…Now there are three wall families, there's the…basic wall, the stacked wall, and the curtain wall.…We looked at the basic wall in the previous movie and as you…recall, it's a basic wall because it…has the same material throughout its construction.…If you look at it horizontally or vertically…you're going to see the same set of layers.…A stack wall is slightly more complex because while it's the…same material along the length, it actually varies along its height.…
Now, all it takes to create a stack wall is to simply take two…or more basic walls and literally stack them up on top of one another.…So in this movie we're going to look at the stacked…walls and we'll address curtain walls in a later movie.…So I have here a file called Stacked Walls.…And it's just a simple file, and we're going to…use it to demonstrate how the Stacked Wall feature works.…Now most of the work is going to take place down here on the Project Browser.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
