Hello!

I'm learning how to use the Wood Framing Walls Extension in Revit 2014, and have run into some trouble regarding where it gets placed within the existing wall. The wood framing does only partially get placed within the wall, and therefore sticks out a bit on one side. I want to be able to choose the instance myself, or at least that it is placed inside the wall. Is there a way to control this, without manually correct it afterwards by moving the frame? 

Furthermore, I can't seem to find a way to choose how the external framing joins together. When editing them in the Wood Framing Walls Extension they appear to join together just fine, but when after I've generated the model they mysteriously join in 45 degrees. I want them to join like they appear in Extension plugin. 

I do understand that this plugin might not be 100 percent finished, and that it still might be under development. 

 

Thank you, and take care

It has been awhile since I used that.  Could it be the placement is based on the wall location setting?  Face of wall/core, center of wall/core etc?

Hi,

i have also had this problem and experimented vastly for a solution.

this is a work around and the best i can find.

remove non core layers of your wall : ie claddings & membranes so you are left with your stud layer. this should be a wood material.

add in your stud work

re install finishes & membranes etc.

the reason for this is that the program appears to favour some materials over others - havent figured out why yet...

EG: Plaster board is included in the (tc) thickness core where wood sheathing is not.

this is purely a material thing and not subject to where it is placed in the wall or what function it is assinged. It does however affect the stud centres or placement.

I've emailed the support team and hopefully they can look into ot or I'm missing something that someone can educate me on!

Ideally (tc) needs to match up to the core layer  in your wall I would think?

 

cheers & good luck,

Richard
