G'day Reviteers,

I've dealt with this before but for the life of me I can not remember how or if it is possible to make a wall with different materials, top and bottom. Say for instance, Brick on top, stone at bottom. I have a wall with a split region but I can't seem to get that split region to act seperate from the original region. So when I change the dimesion of the lower region it changes the dimension of the entire "Finish 1[4]" layer instead of just the lower region. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your time and help!

--Carl

I am still pretty new myself here but I believe the tutorial "Working with Vertically Compound Walls" covers what you are describing. I had to referance this earlier today myself. Good luck I hope this helps. Post edited on 2006-01-20 13:54:04

The tutorial helped in making different materials. I'm still having problems, however, making the stone layer a different thickness than the brick layer. Thanks again. --Carl

Vertically compound walls can only have a single thickness to a layer. They were they only way to split wall finishes in the earlier versions of Revit up until 7.0. Now Revit has the stacked wall feature which lets you make a compound wall out of individual wall types. I make extensive use of stacked walls. There are some problems with wall joins at times, but nothing I haven't been able to overcome. Check out the help file on Stacked Walls for more info. Tom
