Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating vertically compound walls, part of Revit Architecture: Advanced Modeling.
Basic walls are the same material from bottom all the way to top.…To get more variety along the height of the wall, you have several options in Revit.…You can use sweeps, reveals, stacked or curtain walls.…You can also use vertically compound walls.…Any of these is acceptable, given the current circumstances and design goals.…In this movie, we're going to look at vertically compound walls.…What a vertically compound wall does is it allows you to vary the material of…the wall as it moves up the height of the wall.…All this means is we're going to be changing the structure of the wall as it…moves vertically, thus the name vertically compound.…
To do this, I'm in a file here called SAMOCA_V4, and I'm going to zoom in on our…tower element. And I'm going to select one of these walls and kind of spin the…model around, just so we can see the backside here. And I'll use my Ctrl key and…select these three walls at the top.…So what I want to do is add some horizontal bands along the lengths of these…
