Using 2013 Revit.

First problem - trying to attach the stacked wall to the roof and it attach just fine execpt one side of the roof the wall goes past the roof (see picture).  and it does that on 2 walls on the same side of the roof.   I even deleted the walls and the roof and re drew it and the problem is still there.  At one point I adjusted the roof from rafter to truss and that went away?  I tried that again after I redrew the whole stacked wall and roof when the wall went through the roof again, that didn't do any difference.  So I'm confused about that.

 

2nd problem - I made the basic walls taller by another foot, so i went to adjust the stacked wall in edit type to match hight of the new walls and I get this error - "Wall is shorter than minimum height allowed by its type. It is 10' - 0" and must be at least 10' - 6"."  I tried to play with this, but I still dont understand what they are saying?

 

And Lastly -  When I click on the basic wall to change it to stacked wall, the 2nd part of the wall ontop is not there (the cedar shingles) so I detached the wall from the roof and dragged it up and reattach it to the wall, but that didn't help?  So I deleted the wall and redrew it as a stacked wall.

 

I also attached my drawing purging as much as I could.

FYI - I'm more a visual person, so any visual cues would be helpful for me.

one thing to add, after I deleted unused stuff and purged all, the 2nd problem seemed to have gone away.  So I'm not following why or how that happened.  Any helpful thought about this would help me a lot so I can solve it next time should it come up again.

If I understand your problem correctly - you are trying to get the stacked wall to attach to the underside of your roof correctly.  Have you tried just editing the wall elevation profile? When I have problem like this I just edit the profile of the wall and use pick lines tool and pick the underside of the roof line and then trim the rest of the wal lines accordingly.

I played around with your stacked wall in your project file and the only way I could get the wall to attach to the roof properly was when I lowered the height of the lap siding to fall below the eave of the roof (10' or so). It seems that whenever you adjust the height to be higher than the roof eave it breaks. Actually, if you set it to anything higher than 11', it breaks.

Your problem is that the lower portion of the stacked wall goes into the roof and that screws up Revit.  If the stacked wall is modified so that the change in wall is anywhere at or below the roof, then it works.

 

PS - Did you know you can break up stacked walls into individual walls?

I got it now!  That make sense! Kinda weird that Revit is not flexible with stacked wall and the roof. Even tho I will be putting wall sweep between the 2, lap siding and cedar shingles. 

palladio - I have used the edit wall profile,  but I was trying to figure out the reasoning why it doesn't work in the first place!  Now I understand it better, basically gotta keep it at or below the roof eave.

wwhub - I did know about the break up command,  I haven't really played with that much yet.  I'm still learning a lot more about stacked wall!  At least I got the main part of it dailed down! 

Thanks guys!
