Good Day,

First off, thank you for this resource. I am learning Revit, and it is very useful.

I have a condition in a building where a wall extends through the roof, cants, and becomes a skylight.

To start the wall I used a mass and then the walls from faces command.

In the attached image you can see the end condition is leveled off; I want it to square off with the stud.

 

Any ideas how I can achieve this? Thanks!

Hi

You can do this with a void-family you use to cut the wall. Create a Generic Model Family with the void-shape you need in your project, remember to tick 'Cuts with Voids When Loaded' on. Then you can use it in your project to cut walls with the cut command in Modify.

Or create it as an in-place family.

Thank you Sofus for the reply. Would an in place family be the most appropriate response to this particular situation? I am very new to Revit and still learning the best tools for particular situations.

In-place family is perhaps easier to use, but gives you one solid element.

The void falily gives you a true wall with layers.

Which method depends on what you want to do with the wall, and how detailed your project is.
