Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding stacked walls, part of Revit Architecture 2013 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 are 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…are going to use it to demonstrate how the Stacked Walls feature works.…
