This seems to be an issue that has been around for a while, but I don't see and adequate answer on this forum.  We are working on a 250,000 sf school project.  Load bearing masonry corridor walls.  The walls between the classrooms, perpendicular to the corridor walls are also masonry, but non-load bearing.  I have all the walls set correctly but they are all showing the same way in my structural plans.  Both walls show hatched and I'd like to ONLY hatch the the load bearing walls.  Is this possible?  I've tried a bunch of different ideas, all to no avail.  Any help would be appreciated.

We are running Revit Arch 2012.  The structural model is a seaparate model and linked in to the arch. model.  Structural drawings will be produced from the structural model.  All arch. drawings are being produced from the exterior model.

Thanks.

Assuming your plans are NOT coarse scale, then change your assigned materials.

I'm not sure I understand... let me explain what we did a little further.  The bearing walls (and non-bearing) walls are in the architectural model.  We set their structural property and usage in the architectural model.  The beams and bar joists are in the structural model.  In the structural model we are showing the architectural walls.  This is where I want the bearing walls to show hatched. 

How do I change the assigned materials if both walls are 10" cmu, one checked as bearing, one not? Is that possible?  Thanks for the help.

We do something similar to what WWHub is describing for Fire Rated Walls. I'll take a typical metal stud wall (ie. W1) and duplicate it (W1R). Then in the wall assembly; I'll duplicate the 'Metal - Stud layer' and call it 'Metal - Stud layer (rated) and give it a cut pattern. This may not be the answer your looking for but it works for us.

"In the structural model we are showing the architectural walls" How are you getting the non-load bearing walls to show in the structural discipline?
