Hey everyone. This is my first time posting on here, so I'm sorry if this question is in the wrong area.

 But my question is:

 The firm I work for designs mostly hotels and we have rooms that are usually cookie cutter types, in other words they look exactly the same and have the same layout. However, we have at least 4 floors and some floor to floor heights are different. I've created my basic partition walls and such for the guestrooms to the correct level heights, but when I paste align them up Revit automatically gives the walls an offset. I assume it keeps doing this because of the different floor to floor heights. I hope this doesn't mean that I have to create a diffrent wall type for every floor? If so that would be very time consuming and right now it is becoming a problem because after I paste the walls up to the next floor I have to go into each wall and take out the "Top Offset" height. So is there a way to make it so I don't have to do this every single time I copy walls up???? Also is it a bad idea to group walls with my room types??

 

I appreciate all your help, if you need photos I can try some. Thank you in advance.

From the sounds of it you should make a group for each 'cookie cutout' type.

array them acccordingly on each floor (at this point they are in the right place but the walls won't match up)

ungroup them all, highlight all the walls on that floor (using filter tool or isolate category) and set their base and top, rinse and repeat.

 

Should be a quick and painless way of doing what you want to achieve

 

Hope that helps
