Hello RevitCity community,

 

My company uses Revit to create wall panels. We leave 1" gaps between these panels to allow some play in the installation. We have been using this process for over a year now, and it has worked wonderfully. The only frustrating aspect for me is that after I draw all my Revit wall slabs, I have to go along and split them into maximum 12' length panels. The split with gap feature is perfect for this, as it allows you to define the gap AND it disallows join on both new ends of wall created by the split. However, I still have to go to every single corner of my entire model and disallow joins on every end of every wall and manually position them.

 

My question: Is there still not a way to disallow all wall joins by default in an entire project? If not, does Autodesk have any intention of working this in at some point? Seems like this has been an issue since 2007 from what I've found in researching this problem.

 

Thank you in advance,

Are you doing seperate walls for scheduling purposes?  I have use a vertical sweep (void) that creates this gap.

We use schedules for linear feet of each wall height, but the split and disallow join conditions exist because we are using a 3rd party addon to add metal studs to the walls and this addon does some really funky things if the wall boundaries are not clearly defined beforehand. If I were to leave all the corners alone and joined in Revit, when I add studs to the walls, the addon thinks the wall ends somewhere other than where it will actually end, and we get studs on top of other studs, or sometimes no studs generated in corners, etc. If I go through and disallow join in every possible location, clearly defining my wall ends, we see no problems when adding studs. I just want a default setting of "disallow all wall joins" or something similar.

Sorry but I don't see any automatic way of doing this.  I also think it is a problem with the add-on.  It should be able to handle the corners correctly.  the stud generator add in doesn't have this problem and you can define how corners are to be done.

I agree that the add-on doesn't exactly run "smoothly." It's just what my company uses. What stud generator add in are you referring to? That might be worth checking out for us. Thanks for your responses.

You should keep track of what apps are available like this wall joins:

This app has the wall framing:

That wall join app is perfect for us, thanks! I'll definitely start tracking autodesk apps to make life easier.
