Hi - I'm ahving some trouble here, and I've done everything "obvious" to fix it, and nothing's worked. Bear with me through this tedious explanation; I know of no other way in which to do it. I have a vertically compound wall (From bottom to top: Cast Stone, 2 Horizontal Sweeps, Brick A, Horizontal Sweep, Brick B). When I put a partial vertical reveal into the wall (i.e., from the 2nd to 4th levels), it does not reveal the brick it is cutting. I still haven't been able to figure out what it's revealing, but it's not the brick. I only have this problem with vertically compound walls. Any suggestions?

I've managed to temporarily resolve the solution by "painting" the face of the reveal the masonry type that I want. I've attached two previous renderings that show the "before" and "after". The before picture is the entire building - you'll have to look at the rear of the building to clearly see a reveal, as the trees in the foreground hide any immediately notceably reveals. The "after" rendering just shows the front corner, and it'll show the way the reveals no longer reveal the masonry it's cutting. If you need more information, I'll be happy to send what I can. I know the "paint" helps with the problem, but it's a temporary solution, that I'd rather not have to deal with. What's the point of the reveal if I have to go back and fix it? Why use revit then?

Here is the after photo. Forgive the quality of the renderings as they are just basic/draft renderings.

Okay i see it... took some looking. I do believe your only solution in this case is going to be the paint tool. Revit will only apply one material to the cut of a wall from what i can remember and i don't think i recognises when cut to display the different layers surface materials/patterns. This is a current limitation. I'd suggest adding it to a wishlist or making your wish known to Autodesk in hope for a future fix.

I know this thread was posted like 2 years ago, but I know now in the more current releases that you can use the "Add/Remove Walls" Tool in the Tool bar.  What you would do is add your host reveal to the wall...it will only select one of the walls within the stacked wall, for example, the brick.  Then, you select the reveal and use the tool I just described.  Hover over the stacked wall at the next part, in this case the base, and tab till you just get the CMU section.

 Now you have a vertically compound wall reveal.  (See attached image).
