CHAPTER 3

Walls and Curtain Walls

Walls in Revit can range a great deal in complexity. Early in the design process, walls and curtain walls can be more generic, vertical containers for space and function. But they can also be associated to masses in order to create incredibly complex shapes. As the design progresses, these generic walls and curtain walls can be swapped out for more specific vertically compound walls that indicate a range of materials as well as geometric sweeps and reveals.

In this chapter, you learn the following skills:

  • Creating generic walls
  • Creating numerous wall configurations
  • Modifying walls
  • Creating curtain walls
  • Modifying curtain walls
  • Understanding basic wall parts and parameters
