How does your office handle annotating which walls go up to deck vs which walls go 6" beyond ceiling finish vs those that butt up to the underside of the ceiling?

We don't want to use a separate wall type for each of these conditions as we already have a number of wall types and don't want to confuse contracts any more than necessary.. the last thing we need is them to try and figure out what the difference between wall type 32D and 32M.

Also we use Coarse hatching to depict which walls are rated.

So Any other implementations out there?

We have a wall types tag that has a seperate box with an instance based parameter.  A simple letter there tells if the wall is to underside of deck or other conditions.  If not indicated - it is always to underside of deck above.


Still no really good method for rated walls.   Coarse hatching will only show in coarse views.  You could filter the walls and show them coarse but then you can't see that your dimension is to sub layers like face of stud.   We have all of our rated walls with a coarse red fill so we can see that when appropriate but we never print it - we just turn that on for management of their location.  Rated walls always have an 'R' in their wall type tag.   Our code sheets use 2D lines added at the center of rated walls to show different ratings.
