What are wall properties and types? Find out about modeling basics and wall properties and types in Revit Architecture 2015 with this online tutorial. Many elements in this de-facto standard tool for architecture and design have set properties and types, and in this video, you'll see how some are controlled at the type level.
…Most elements in Revit have both instance and type properties.…Walls are no exception.…Some of the behaviors that we witness with…walls are driven by the, each individual instance.…And some are controlled at the type level.…If you change something at the type level, it changes all instances of that wall.…So, in this movie, I'm going to look at some examples of each kind of property.…And I have here on screen a file called Wall Properties…and I've annotated the file to indicate the location line feature.…In the previous movie, we looked at a lot of settings of the walls,…but we haven't covered the location line feature yet, so let's start with that.…
Now, this wall right is here is just one of the default wall types.…It's the exterior brick on CMU wall, and it has a base constraint of level one.…And, it's unconnected at the moment.…But right here is the feature I want to focus on, location line.…And if I open that up, you'll see that there are several options for that.…Now, I've indicated them here with these lines.…

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.
