Is it possible to create new Model Categories and Annotation Categories similar to layers in Autocad? I want to be able to have more than 1 category for walls under the Model Categories etc. to allow for greater ability to turn various objects on and off in various views.

It is possible to create object style sub-categories but not that you'll be able to use for walls like you describe. You can however use them in families to allow control over visibility of parts and pieces of the the family(ies) you create. For greater visibilty control over walls like you describe I'd use worksets. Even if you are a single person working on a project, worksets will give you greater control over what and how things are displayed. They also will greatly increase the size of a project you can effectively work on because you don't have to load all the workset when you open a project. If you are the only person working on the project you can just check all the worksets out and "pretend" they aren't there except when you need to control visibility of something and of course a save to central. Do the tutorial on worksets and see what you think.

I'm trying to create a new Model Category but have no clue how to do this. Can't find anything through search.  I have a  stadium seat which is currently under Generic Models and need a new Category for visibility purposes.  Any help in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.

 Thanks

To create a new sub-category open the family then go to: Settings>Object Styles then create a new sub-category.

You can also change the category of the generica model to a different category in the family editor by going to: Settings>Family Categories and Parameters and then choosing a new category.  

You stadium seat for instance may work better for you in the 'furniture' or 'specialy equipment' category.  You can also then create a new sub-category in most of the othr categories you change the family to belong to.
