I have a wall cleanup problem I hope to get help with. I want a single leaf blockwork wall to clean up with a cavity wall's interior blockwork. The Cavity wall comprises of the following layers: 102.5mm Brickwork exterior leaf, 35mm Air Flow, 65mm Insulation, 100mm Concrete blockwork interior leaf, 25mm Timber Battons, 12.5mm Plasterboard. There is a Sweep with a Buttress profile to the base of the Exterior. 

The single leaf Blockwork Wall doesn't cleanup with the Cavity Wall's Interior leaf Concrete Blockwork. There should be a clean 'T' join however lines appear where the join is. A work around was to creat a seperate wall for the Timber stud and plasterboard and join the two walls but this is time consuming and the reveals on ope's aren't included. 

Please see attached image and a copy of the RVT file.

Thanks, Peter

That file does not load on my machine.

I HATE WIKI HELP - IT IS NO GOOD!  This is from your loaded help file:

Applying a Function to a Layer of a Compound Structure


You assign each layer a specific function so the layer can join to its corresponding functional layer. Layer functions have an order of precedence.


Rules for Layer Joins

  • The structure layer has the highest priority, Priority 1.
  • Finish 2 has the lowest priority, Priority 5.
  • Revit Architecture connects high priority layers before connecting layers with the lowest priority.

    For example, suppose that you join 2 compound walls. A layer in the first wall with Priority 1 joins to a layer with Priority 1 in the second wall. That Priority 1 layer can pass through lower priority layers before joining to the other Priority 1 layer. A layer with a lower priority cannot pass through a layer of equal or higher priority.

    The following illustration shows higher priority layers joining before lower priority layers. The Priority 1 CMU layer of the horizontal wall passes through all layers, until it reaches the Priority 1 stud layer of the vertical wall. Note that the insulation in the horizontal wall does not pass through the air space in the vertical wall, because they are both Priority 3 and are outside the core layer.


  • When layers join, the join cleans up if the 2 layers have the same material. If the 2 layers have different materials, a line appears at the join.
  • Each layer must have a function assigned to it for Revit Architecture to match layers accurately.
  • Layers inside the core of one wall pass through layers of higher priority that are outside the core of the joined wall. The layers in the core extend to the core of a joined wall, even if the core layers are set to Priority 5.

    The following illustration shows how a layer of lower priority inside the core passes through layers of higher priority outside the core. The insulation layer of the horizontal wall has moved inside the core. The insulation layer can now pass through any layer outside the core, regardless of its priority.

I need to use this when I get to my computer. I wasn't sure how to mark this so I can find it again.
