Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding stacked walls, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- 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, is you look…at it horizontally or vertically,…you're gonna see the same set of layers.…A stacked wall is slightly more complex…because while it's the same material along its length,…it actually varies along its height.…
Now, all it takes to create a stacked 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 gonna 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 gonna use it…to demonstrate how the stacked wall feature works.…Now, most of the work is gonna take place…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
