I am working on a simple house with a brick facade in the front.  In order to generate the 3d model correctly, I need the brick to extend past the floor system to the concrete wall (or a brick ledge, to be more accurate).  As you well know, Revit stops walls at the floor line.  I have discovered how to extend the finishes above or below (by editing the wall type and unlocking the finish layers [see other forums for that]). 

My new problem arises that when I do more than one wall in this fashion, as in going around corners, the 3d model looks excellent, but the floor plan walls stop joining.  The brick shows to be running through the perpendicular stud cavity. 

I am having to sacrifice either the 3d/elevations or the floor plan.  Has anyone else run into this problem?  I have attached pictures detailing my problems.

Hi, did you try use the "Trim" in those walls? or/and the "Join Geometry"?? those walls have the same "offset extended base" value??

Extend your walls to the required level by setting in an offset to the bottom edge and make sure that the wall is not attached to the floor level.

Fixed the problem:

I used a miter to join the walls. 

One caveat:  revit seems to be acting very strange in this situation, when i miter the lower corner (plan view), the other wall join fixes itself with no editing being done.

 

Thanks for the help!
