Module 5: Creating New Basic Wall Types
ugr_icon_05One thing is for certain- you will need to create your own Wall Types! I take you through the process (step-by-step) and explain all the key parameters that you will encounter. I explain the "Edit Assembly" panel in detail- Including the various options for Layer Functions
5.01Edit Type and Duplicate!Don't mess with your existing Wall Types! In this Unit I stress the importance of creating a copy of an existing wall type "before" you start modifying it!
5.02Naming your new Wall TypesNaming your custom Revit Families is a discipline in all itself. New Revit Wall Types are no exception. In this Unit we discuss the importance of being methodical and systematic with your naming conventions
5.03Adding Layers to your Wall TypeRight at the heart of compound Revit Walls are Layers. In this Unit I show you how to add new Layers and delete redundant ones
5.04Wall Layer Functions explainedCrucial to the smooth operation Revit Walls (especially when it comes to them joining together!) is the Layer Function Parameter. I explain their use in detail
5.05Wall Layer Wrapping explainedThere are various options available to you with regards how Wall Layers "wrap" when they come to "Inserts" or the end of the Wall. I show you how each of these options work in practice
5.06The remaining Wall Type parametersOnce you've defined the Layers in your Wall, will need to consider the data held in the remaining Type parameters. In this Unit we discuss each of these in turn
5.07Adding your new Wall Type to a Revit Template fileAfter you've created your new Wall Type you'll want it to be available to you for all new Projects. In this Unit we look at how you can easily add it to your base Template file

Module 6: Wall Joins
ugr_icon_06I explain (from first principles) the rules that Revit uses to create the joins between different Wall Types. Once you understand the rules, you can create correct joins between any 2 types. No more fudging with Masking Region!
6.01Wall Layer Functions and Walls JoinsIn this Unit we recap on the importance of the Wall Layer Function parameter with respect to how different Wall Types join each other. I show you via practical examples how this works

Module 10: Bonus Material
ugr_icon_10And just for good measure, here is some Bonus Material!
10.01Model In-Place WallsNeed an irregular-shaped wall? Non-parallel wall? In-Place modelling is probably the way to go. In this Unit I show you how to create Walls based on a sketch.
10.02Creating Curved WallsEveryone likes curved Walls! In this Unit we look at the creation of Curved Walls using different drawing tools
10.03Creating a Fillet Arc between two WallsThe ability to create a curved Filet between two straight Walls is not one that is readily apparent within Revit- but it is in there! In this Unit I show you how to do this
10.04Creating Walls from Faces of mass forms or generic modelsNeed to create a 'really' fancy 3D free-form Wall? No problem- that's where the "Wall by Face" tool comes into play. I show you step-by-step how this tool works
10.05Using 2D CAD plans as a template for your Revit WallsQuite often you'll be starting a 3D model based upon an existing building. If you have a 2D CAD plan (eg DWG file) for the existing, I show you how to quickly add your Revit Walls using the CAD import as a template
