Hello, I would like to hear some tips on how to slant/skew wall in 3d, so that I would have a slant in section and elevation. Any tips?

Very Simple: 1- Choose the wall you want to slant 2- you will find " EDIT PROFILE " on the options bar 3- Revit will ask you which view you would like to edit the wall if you are in plan view 4- you will find the wall bounded by thick magenta lines 5- edit these lines and draw any line you like with any shape "curved-angled-sloped...." 6- then select " FINISH SKETCH " Have FUN !!!!!!!

to do a battered or sloped wall. I use the "roof" command and create a roof as a wall type (building in all the wall components that I want)... there are some issue with this as you are creating a rooffor instance if you are scheduling your wall types the roof/wall will not appear in the schedule. But for sloped faced walls this works well. I usually have to play with the pitch slope a few times to get it right. I have used this techique to do sloped faced landscape walls and sloped face rock walls on houses. Tthe sloped faced walls on housed I actually did 2 walls one for the structure (wood stud) and a roof wall for the rock facade.

If you are looking for a wall that is not perpindicular to the ground, the best method I have found is by using the massing tools. The steps are pretty Simple for this method.

  • Create a mass (give it a name)
  • Slect 'Solid Form' - Solid Blend
  • Draw the base first, then in the Sketch bar select 'Edit top'
  • Finish Sketch (you can make more modifictions to this mass with void forms and additional solids)
  • Finish Mass
  • Under the 'Massing' tools select 'Wall by Face'
  • Pick your wall type and then just start selecting faces of the mass

The Massing Tools are are not used near enough in the revit community and can be very powerful design tools. If you are having any troubles creating the form that you want using Revit, its just as easy to create the form in SketchUp and then imported in.

You can also make a wall by extrusion.  Go to Modeling-Create-Wall.  give it a name, pick a reference plane perpendicular to the wall, draw it's section, etc.  I use this a lot when making walls/ceilings underneath stairs.

Thanks for the input below. The process below is indeed helpful. Though, my question with below's process is how to attach the wall to a roof/base? Doing a "wall-by-face" seems to limit the options of that wall. Please help...

Thanks

To attach walls to roofs simply click on the wall and click attach and then click on the roof.

It's not as simple as that when you've created a wall using "wall-by-face"...

I just do it with an 'In-Place Family' and set the category to 'wall'.

 

You can make a wall that has any slope or shape.

To slant walls in 3D I create an in-place mass, creating the mass into the shape of my wall. For a slanted wall this is pretty simple: just drag an edge of the mass to create a slanted face - finish mass model. Next, go to the massing and site tab, use the mass walls tool, select the face on the mass you just created. Now a wall will appear on the face of the mass.

My problems isn't as much making the mass, but actually editing it after the fact.  I can't see to "grab" the void to edit the opening I've created.   All my visibility settings seem to be on, the show mass button is activated.  When I have messed around and have been able to find it, it seems to be really difficult to, gitchy even to control.  

 

This just doesn't seem to be a very nimble part of the program.

You have to edit the mass to edit the void that cuts it.

...yes, which is very hard if I can't "grab" the mass to edit it.

Use a mass schedule to select the mass.

 

And BTW - If you deleted the mass, you will never be ablt to edit it.
