Hi there. I am new to Revit (one month) and am trying to convert my office (and mind) from Autocad to Revit. I am a residential architect nad have been so for 15 plus years. Here is my question. It has to deal with wall types. When using basic Autocad, I would typically draw my walls in plan at their true width, ie: 2x4= 3 1/2". In section, I would add the thickness of the finishes (gyp board, exterior sheathing, etc...) I can see how Revit can save so much time when it comes to sections and elevations. But, in plan, it shows all those lines for the materials. Is there a way to turn those off so that I do not see them in plan, but still have them there for sections and details. It really is driving me up the wall. I do not want to plot with them showing on plan, nor dor I want to see them as I am working on the plan. I hope this is not a stupid question, but my mind is still trying to convert from 2D to 3D thinking. Thanks in advance...

in plan set your detail level to coarse and it will display only two lines representing the widith of the wall best regards, coreed,aia Post edited on 2006-04-07 14:34:57

I've done that, and it does show just the two lines, but the thickness for the exterior walls shows the face of the finish levels. I just want the plan to show the basic core, and not the finishes. Does that make sense?

This is kind've against the thinking of revit, however you could achieve this by using override host layers in your plan view (visibility settings) and making your finish layer a white line, thus rendering it invisible. HTH.
