Has anyone made a wall type for a tilt panel wall? we noticed that RAC 2009 does not come with that out of the box. I know there is one in the Structural library, under framing, but you can not insert doors/windows into it because it is not a wall.

This is very easy to do.

First setup a Basic Wall for the concrete part to the thickness you desire.  Lets say 150mm

Now duplicate the curtain wall system and create one called Tiltup panel or whatever you want.

Now setup the system, set the panels to be the 150mm concrete basic wall you just made, you should also create a profile for your joints and then setup a mullion type to use this profile.  Then setup your curtain wall to use this mullion for Grid 1 & Grid 2.

Thats it.  Just draw your wall and add grids as necessary and the mullions will be added automatically.  As your panels are basic wall you can still host doors and windows to them...

HTH.

that seems like a long drawn out process for such a simple thing.i can make the wall itself, and get it to look the way i want, with the joints. i guess really what we need to be able to do is update the template with the wall style that was made, that way it loads with the template when you start a new project. Revit is a great program, but there are things that could have been done better.

I think that what mr spot is talking about is really easy.  you simply draw a curtain wall (and tilt-up is more or less a curtain wall right?) and draw in the grids and then switch out the glass panels for concrete walls.  The curtain wall can be a very powerful tool too.

"Long drawn out process"???

It takes 30 seconds to do, do once in your template and then its always there for you to use...  Give it a try.

I just got through a tilt-wall project. I used a "Basic-Wall" any thickness will do. I went into the properties, "Edit"-"Duplicate"-renamed it Tilt-Wall 7.25" and then changed the structure to cast-in-place concrete that was 7.25" thick. You can then add a curtain wall-storefront and windows and doors just like any other wall.

Hello

I am preparing a concrete tilt panel building, I ahve created the Curtain wall system as mentioned and it works for walls at 90deg. I have a couple of walls whuich are not at right angles, thus it seems hard to place mullion at an angle between the angle of the two walls.

 I am tempted to use normal tilt panel walls and then create the panels as soilds, but this would not update the solids if i change the walls or opennings.

 Does anyone have any ideas how we can manipulate Revit to work the way I want it to.

Would i have to creat a mullion with adjustable angles?

Thsnkd for the helpful information Mr. I will certainly try this on my next proct. I had used a basic wall (concrete) in the past and placed face based voids for my profiles but this would seem to be a much more user friendly way of doing it.

 

Thanks again

Nice idea Mr. Spot, that could even work for a pre-engineered metal panel building.

what is the advantage of curtain grid method vs parts method for creating panels? using parts i can have entire shell have set up with panel joints based on grids in seconds. also miter panel joints are no problem. just wandering as i am starting tilt up project and want to use proper method.
