I need a textbook-style answer to this question: If you want to change the material on a stacked wall, what do I need to change? Do I change the Wall type of the stacked wall? Or the structure of the stacked wall? Or the structure of the associated wall within the stacked wall? I've had difficulty understanding the difference between wall type and wall structure.

A stacked wall is just that.  Stacked individual wall types. 

 

I always suggest that you alter individual wall types if you want a change of materials.  I suggest you just don't "paint" a finish.  Materials are typically represented differently in thickness and in sectional views.  Painting will not to this.

 

So my suggestion is to:

  1. unstack the wall and replace the wall type with a new wall type.
  2. Redefine the wall type in the stack (and rename if appropriate.)
  3. Create a new wall type and create a new stacked wall using this type.

Sorry but you didn't answer my question. You are correct in the practical sense. ButpPlease read my question- it's a theoretical, textbook question. It's not "how to change the materials, per se. It's what is it that you call it the thing that you change - the structure or the type? What is it that you are changing, exactly??? Please read the question carefully. Thanks.

 

Many thanks

the structure of the associated wall within the stacked wall

 

meaning you change the material in the wall type that you want to change,

without changing anything in the stacked wall directly,
