Does anyone know if it is possible to create a wall type that when viewed in 3d would show up at a given spacing (such as studs @16" o.c.) instead of a solid wall type. Also is it possible to create the holes typical in metal studs so when you cut a section they would show up in the wall type. Thanks for any input.

If you're looking to display individual framing components such as studs and plates etc, then no, these cannot be generated in the wall family system. What you are suggesting can only be drawn manually, probably using in-place families and arrays, or you can set up familes of framing components which use formulas to constrain repeating component centres etc. I think there is a tutorial within Revit in the advanced tutorial section under Help.

If you want to display these components within the wall, such as in a brick veneer wall, you may be able to set your stud wall material to something transparent such as glass, and still have the correct wall thickness and scheduling. I'm not sure if any of this eases you pains, but I can't think of anything else unless others have better suggestions...

What about using a curtain wall family instead? You could specify stud profiles for the mullions and then you'd be able to correctly space them?

As already mentioned you can't do this within a wall type. You can however create a family and array your studs will hole in the correct locating (assuming you created them) and set up a value fo 16 O.C. etc. Then import it into a project and create a wall type that shows all the other components of the wall...the brick, insulation, G.W.B etc and build your wall in the project by placing your stud family and adding all the other items to it. I have seem several CD set that show fraiming drawings and the finish drawing with brick G.W.B etc. on another view. However, it's a lot of work and your file will get very big, depending on the size of the project.
