Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Wall properties and types, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- 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 gonna look at…some examples of each kind of property,…and I have here onscreen…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 the settings of the walls,…but we haven't covered the location line feature yet.…
So let's start with that.…Now this wall right 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 1…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…so the centerline of the wall…

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.
