I took a break from the tutorials to recreate a 3 bedroom farmhouse plan that I downloaded from the LSU AgCenter.

I noticed that the walls are metal studs by default in Revit. Without having to duplicate and editing a type, is there a family of wood framing partitions that I can load? When I click on "Wall" the "Load Family" option is not available.

In Revit walls, the core layers are a material and thickness only definition.  The core elements temselves are really not modeled.  So the difference between metal stud and wood stud is only a name/thickness change and how it is represented in cut profile hatch patterns.  Studs themselves are not modeled.

 

So to create your wood stud wall, edit the type giving it a new ttpe name, modify the layer(s) thicknes amd material assignments and you have your wood stud wall.
