When trying to have 2 cavity walls in a "T shape" the cavities do not extend into each other, please see attached jpeg, Can anyone explain how i continue the cavity from the lower vertical wall (as on plan) to the horizontal wall above, and also explain a little as to how to do wall wrapping please Thanks

Hi there, I think it's because the two walls both have brick outer skin and block inner skin. If the lower wall was a block/block cavity then Revit would recognise this and make the correct junction between the similar materials. Hope that makes sense? Regards Rob

Wall juctions can be controlled by the Function section under the Structure menu of the walls in question. You assign each layer of the wall a different priority (1, 2, etc) so the program understands how to correctly form the junction. For example you would want to assign the cavity layer of your lower wall a higher priority than the internal leaf of your top wall. This will ensure the cavity 'pas ses through' the inner leaf and correctly joins the cavity of the outer wall. Post edited on 2005-03-22 11:29:07

It's the layers within the wall that you prioritise, not the walls themselves. Select the wall in question > Properties > Edit/New > Edit (opposite Structure) You should then have access to the wall's layer properties and should look something like the attached image
