Even when you feel your design is complete within Revit Architecture, you might find it still has some issues, such as sharp wall corners or insufficient masonry pass. The Wall Joint tool will correct these wall issues under Revit Architecture 2015. In this video you'll learn how to use the Wall Joint tool to correct problems you may have creating seamless wall joins.
…So our two bedroom condominium floor plan is coming along quite nicely.…And we're almost done but we have some small finishing touches to complete.…I'm in a file here called Walljoints, and if you recall when we were laying…out the interior partitions, we ended up with…some undesirable conditions over here and over here.…I'm going to use my zoom in region, and zoom in on this location, and you…may recall that we had these really…sharp corners here where the walls come together.…In addition to that, if I zoom in even closer over in this location,…you'll see that I've got this masonry…wall here and here with the crosshatching inside.…

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.
