I have TWO types of walls in my model (beyond curtain walls).

I have two wall heights 8'6"' and 10'9"'. I made two different types of walls for this purpose. However, I built the walls at a generic height (11') didn't know the dimensions until a few days ago. I now want to change the height from 11' to 10'9" for my 2nd wall type.  What is the best way to do, (i.e most efficient) vs. clicking on each wall and changing the height to 10'9"? I've tried match properties but its not efficient. Also if I change my level to 10'9" then my ceiling doesn't show up in RCP 1.

Thank you in advance!

Create multiple levels, and control from there the height of that kind of elements.

The faster way to go is--> select all--> filter type--> wall. Then isolate element --> select all the walls that are changing--> set the height to "level x" where level x is the new height. You dont really need two types, only one type with different heights, so change all those walls into a single walltype.

The way you've set things up doesn't necessitate any sort of filtering or level-changing.  Just use the select all command.

Select the wall type -> Right-Click -> Select All Instances -> In entire project

You've now selected all the walls of that particular type in the entire project.  Change the wall properties from there.

 

Also, you don't have to have a single wall type either, what you've done works.  It may not be ideal from a model/information maintenance standpoint, but it works.  Each method has it's advantages and disadvantages.
