This seems like it should be fairly basic, but Revit is having a really hard time understanding how to cleanup walls with modified vertical structure. I have a condition where I have an acoustic wall assembly made up of two stud layers where one of the two stud layers needs to join to a raised floor. As soon as I unlock the bottom layers of the wall in order to accomplish this Revit fails to join the walls cleanly in plan. I don't understand why it can't do this and I've hit a wall. I'm trying really hard to avoid using filled regions to make this detail correct. Does anyone have an insight on what I might be doing wrong? (File is Revit 2014)

Just use the Wall Join tool on the Modify tab and change it to Miter

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately that does not provide the correct join condition that I need. Mitre truncates the assemblies in the wall that is not true to how it will be constructed in the field.

Place the base of the wall at the elevation the floor assembly is at and use the Attache Top/Base command and it will do what you are trying to acheive.

I looked at this and can't see why it doesn't work.  Send it to autodesk.

Solved - Looks like I was over thinking this one - I thought that I would need to modify the bottom of the wall to meet the floor the way that I need, but all I needed to do was join the floor and wall together and let the priorities of the assemblies take care of themselves! Brilliant!
