I draw up residential plans.  On our foundation plan I often have a wall type of 10" concrete with 2" stone veneer.  On the foundation plan I do not want the stone to be visible, but only the 10" concrete.  Is there any way to only show certain materials or at least only the core materials?

I think this you could do by "level of detail" bottom left icon, that you can edit it within material structure of wall, where they can be visible.

 

I dont have english version so i dont know the exact "name" of the icon. But its rectangle with chess field in it (you have 3 types of detail level)

The problem with doing this is that it then shows a 12" wall, not a 10" wall.  I need to only show the concrete, and not the veneer.  Is there any way to do this?

have you tried to hide the stone veneer? that would hide it in the view only and not the model. so all you would see in the fnd plan would be the 10" wall.

How do you hide the stone veneer?  That is my question.  Other than using linework and clicking on every instance of stone veneer, how do you do?  Also,  the darker wall line in on the very outside of the wall so if I do linework on the stone veneer line then I have to darken the line representing the edge of the concrete.

you can select the stone veneer then right click and select hide in view and select element and that hides it in the view.  you also get the pop up to hide on the ribbon when you select and item.  you can do one at a time or tab select to grab more instances of the stone veneer and then hide them.

I can't turn off only the stone veneer of the wall, when I do that it turns off the entire wall.

I think this may be what you need- in Revit Architecture Help look at 'Modify' in 'Vertically Compound Walls'.It allows the layers of the wall to be adjusted vertically either from the top or the bottom of the wall.

I think I need to clarify what I am doing.  I have a foundation wall that is 10" concrete and 2" stone veneer.  I want the plan to show ONLY the 10" concrete with a hard wall line around the 10" concrete.  I appreciate the suggestions above but they do not solve the issue.  Is there any setting within walls or other work around in which I could have the wall show up as 10" only without doing tediuous linework to get what I'm looking for.  I need the wall to be 10 and 2 in model becuase it flushes out with a stud wall above that has 2" stone veneer.  It seems revit should have an option for this.  An option to at least only show the core layers of a wall in plan view.

First, does the stone veneer really exist at this level and that is the reason you want to turn it off?  If that is the case, you have two options:

  1. Do the wall as two walls, one on top of the other.  This is the standard because you really have two different walls.
  2. In the wall properties, unlock the stone layer.  Now you can pull that layer up (or down) to where you want it.

If the stone is really there but you don't want to show it, you can do two walls side by side and join them.  One is the concrete and the other is only the stone.  Now you can hide the stone wall.

does your stone veneer run on the entire fAce of the fnd wall or is it say just the top 2 or 4 ft of the wall.  if that is the case just adjust your cut plan by adjusting it below the stone veneer so you are not actually cutting thru it.

Thanks for your help on this one guys.  I think my best and easiest route is to still do the linework until Revit has an option for only showing core layers of walls on plan views.  This seems like an easy option for Revit to do.

I know what you mean i just did a demo plan where only the finish of the wall was being demo'd but we did not know that when we started. i had to go back thru the plan and make two different wall types to make up the existing wall, then demo the finish side of the wall.  maybe that is how you could do it. make a fnd wall and a stone veneer wall and then just hide the veneer wall on your fnd plan. little more thinking and planning up front but not as much work as using line work.

pionkows...what Bimman said is right that you have to select and hide the wall using element hide. You said that complete wall is getting hide. Are you using Element hide(EH) or Category hide(VH). Better use shortcut keys EH or VH. Please let me know if you are using 2 different walls or a Stacked wall so that we can give you better solution.

It is not 2 different walls and it is not a stacked wall.  It is a wall with 2 materials 10" concrete and 2" stone.  As a previous poster has said, I could draw 2 different walls right next to each other.  This just seems like more time involved than doing the linework on plan.
