I'm still on the process of getting this all figured out but the main problems I'm running into with the wall framing is where the top & bottom plates are extending past the wall corners.

using Revit 2013.

 

What am I missing here?

 

Thank in advance

How did you put the top and bottom plates in? Are they sweeps that are a part of the wall structure?  Did you try using the wall joins command and change it from Butt to Miter?

The t & b plates are part of the wall extension structure.

Structural wall.

The corners are the default

Did you try using the wall join command and the miter as I suggested?  Do you have a setback set in the Wall Sweep dialog box? Attach a file with your wall if none of these help so I can look into it further.

Trying to creat a 2mb files is seeming hard for me than it should be I think.  Still working on it a file to upload.

OK,  I'm not having any luck pulling the wall type into a file that is 2 mb or less.  Any guidance?

 

Thanks

Open a copy of your file then delete everything except your two walls.  Also all views, schedules, legends then purge all.

Here we go.  Still a learning curve for me where everything is.  Didn't realize there was a purge in it or I'd had that done yesterday.

I find it's holding the plates short or extending them the same distance past the corners

 

Thanks

The wall types that you have in the attached file do not have any sweeps in them. I have attached the same file with a 2x4 double top plate sweep applied to it.  The edges clean up together.

OK, So I'm still at a little bit of a loss.  Did you apply the sweep after you created the framing?  In what you'd sent me it seems like the top plates & the wall are one entity rather than the framing being seperate from the wall.

The plates are a part of the wall.  Edit the wall, edit the structure, switch the view in the Edit Assembly dialog box to Section and under sweeps you can add them to your wall assembly so they are all one part.  Are you really going to show ALL of the framing in your project?  That is probably advised againt.  You can just use details items in sections.

I don't know what's with my dbl. posts, strange.

 

No not going to show all the framing, just trying to figure it all out. I would just like to get as good at Revit as I am with AutoCAD.

 

However we do some MTL. stud work where I put together shop drawings and I'm just trying different things.
