Hello,

What is the best way to make this kind of L-shape wall shown in the picture without editing the profile and loosing the top and base attachments? As you can see, I made two separate walls, but I believe there is a better way to achieve this.

Many Thanks

Two seperate walls are the best way.

If your curtain wall is set to embed, then it will cut the wall and no reason to sketch the "L".

But when, I edit the flooring and Revit asks if I want to attach walls to it, Revit makes a gap. Please see the attachment.

There is something else going on here but you have not given us enough information.

When we do exterior walls in Revit, the preference is that they go full height, not floor to floor.  We model like it is built.  Is this wall just floor to floor?   What are the limits of your floor?

The way I build is:

1. Build the external and internal walls. (internal walls are up to each other as there are no flooring yet).

2. After adding the flooring, Revit asks if I want to attach my walls to the bottom of it. Obviously I click yes, and my internal partitions are cut down by the bottom of the floor.

The issue in this case is that if I have two separated external walls (as per image attached), after the the flooring is added external walls are being attached as well, that makes the gap I am showing in my picture.

I hope I explained myself clearer now Smile

 

Many Thanks

Ed

The answer is here:  "...Revit asks if I want to attach my walls to the bottom of it. Obviously I click yes..."

That's OK for perimeter walls but not exterior.  Join the floor and the exterior wall and the floor will only cut out what it needs.  When you attach to the bottom, the whole wall attached to the BOTTOM.
