My company makes prefebricated wall panels for large buildings such as hotels and casinos. We can put multiple materials on a single panel (such as brick and EIFS) with different thicknesses. When I create a wall with multiple materials, I want the wall to show that the structure (metal stud framing), sheathing, and the weather barrier on the face of the sheathing runs continuous while anything on the face of the weather barrier can be separated into varying materials. Frankly, I don't think Revit will allow me to change materials in this fashion. We have been creating multiple walls in an assembly to accommodate the different materials, but it shows a join between the two different types of walls. I can either make the join invisible by making the end of each wall invisible or I can create a white line to hide the join. If I make the ends of the walls invisible, it loses the join between the materials which needs to be kept. If I use the white line, I have to go back and fix the rest of the lines to show correctly. Either way, there is a lot of work to force Revit to show the walls correctly. Ideally, I'd like to have a joint between the differing materials with the studs, sheathing, and WB run without a break, but I think the only way I can do that is if I include a reveal between the two materials while doing some sort of 2D fix for the problem at the join in the structure.

I apologize if someone has already asked this question before as I'm new to the site, but I can't seem to find the same problem in the forum. Thanks.

I was a bit afraid of that. We tend to end up with so many different types of stacked walls to accommodate all of the different conditions around the building. Oh well. Thanks for the help!

I'm sorry. Maybe I misunderstood. The video explicitly said that if the layers have different thicknesses, then stacked walls were needed. The composition of the brick wall and the composition of the EIFS wall have different thicknesses, so I assumed that meant a stacked wall.

Yea ... I kinda missed that but no matter.... you still don't need stacked walls.   Look at the below.

Different thickness outside layers... without stacking.

I spit the wall and assigned materials then I used a void sweep (profile is 2' high) in the wall definition to cut back one layer - the brick.  I don't think a postive sweep will work but this does.

 

Will this help you?
