(Revit 2011) I have an exterior wall that has a brick watertable up to 2'8", then has a stone sill with windows above, and then fiber cement siding continuing to the bottom of the soffit (see attached image).  I'm not sure how to go about building this in the wall section with the two different materials of brick/fiber cement siding.  I know how to include the sill sweep, but if someone could please help guide me to developing these walls, I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks!

edit the construction of your wall, when you look at the wall in the editor, if you click on a layer, there is a lock which appears at the top.  Click on this lock, and drag the height down to the 2-8" you want or so.  If you have 2009 or earlier (back when the help files were better) I highly recommend opening it up, and reading up on the wall construction, because you can merge layers, and do all kinds of complex things...  Like for example, adding that sill into the wall construction itself, so that you don't have to add it later...

Take a look in your HELP menu and search "Stacked Walls", also, there are lots of threads about that here in Forums
