I confess - I looked around and tried a few things - but cannot get a slanted wall to work. Can you point me in the right direction ?

if you select the wall there should be an edit profile button on the top bar im not sure what its called option bar maybe, im still new to revit myself, and it will take you to sketch mode where you can make the profile angled. i hope that helped

If your refering to a canted wall, then you would need to create an in-place family wall. Either that or if you still want to have all the layers of the wall, I'd suggest using a roof for the wall with a steep pitch... (unfortunately if you want to put any host elements doors/windows into this wall/roof then you will most likely have to edit/create new families to get them to behave correctly in the canted wall. My preference is for the roof option. HTH.

I found a section in my book about doing it with model lines and then using the curtain system by lines method to create a glcursewall - this seems to work - but rather tricky. Let me know what you think. I am going to try your suggestions for the canted walls that are not glazed. Thanks Evan

I was going to suggest that method also, but it's a little more difficult when you require inserts. But hey, if that's all you need then by all means do it that way... Its faster and will behave a little better at intersections.

Could you not use "sculpted walls" tutorial by Mr GG to create your cant wall profile ?

I'm running into the same problem with battered stone walls. I've tried sweeps on wall types but I loose the windows; they are buried in the wall. I've tried the blend extrusion and it will create a wall you can put doors and windows in but you can't use it to replace existing walls in a layout. Not real user-friendly. Is there a useful solution or is this a giant bust in Revit?

"I've tried the blend extrusion and it will create a wall you can put doors and windows in but you can't use it to replace existing walls in a layout" What do you mean by this? If you are having trouble placing inserts in the in-place family wall, you could create voids to cut the wall where the inserts need to go, then have a normal wall to the size of the opening and place an insert in this wall to its full extents?? HTH.
