Wall Articulation in Revit

Walls need to be split up in Revit to provide for proper cleanup when the wall needs to form a corner, or attach to a roof above it. This view of a split-level house with the roofs hidden shows how the shingle-sided walls (divided by dotted pink lines below) are broken into three objects to allow the joins to behave properly and look good in the drawings. The shingle walls are separate objects from the tan siding-finished walls on the storey below. Often, breaking up the walls into pieces is what you need to do to make it more flexible for editing without having to resort to work-arounds to get the objects looking right in the views. Use Join Geometry where needed to remove linework between walls. Disabling of joins on wall ends will make walls more static, and keep their end locations static so that they do not move while you are editing other parts of the model.

3 The Split Face tool was used here to switch from shingles to GWB on this part of the wall

1 Upper wall is separate from lower wall to permit wrapping at corner

2 This wall is separate from the one to the right on the same storey to permit clean joining to the lower roof over
