Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding stacked walls, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
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. If you look at it horizontally or…vertically, you're going to see the same set of layers.…A stack 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 stack 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 going to 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 going to use it to demonstrate…how the stacked walls feature works. Now, most of the work is going to take…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
