We have a fairly common interior wall that the GWB runs 6" above the reflected ceiling. The metal studs run all the way to the next floor or the roof structure. I cannot figure out how to make this wall in Revit. I have seen vertically compound walls in Revit, but not this one.

I have attached a PDF of our section.

 Thanks

Daryl

It can be looked at as a 'stacked wall' where you have two different walls one with GWB and one without GWB.  See the Revit help file for stacked walls.

The downside to using a stacked wall is that you can only tag the indivual walls not the 'stacked' version.

You could also unlock the GWB layers and pull them down to be only 6" above the ceiling.  A pain in the *&^% for more than a few walls though.

Another option is to not model the wall as it really appears and simply describle the wall section in a drafting view like you have on the attached PDF.  As long as you are not trying to do material take-offs or cut live sections through the wall this approach would work.

The Revit mantra is 'model it like you build it', but sometimes that is tough to do and compramises need to be made.

Thanks Tom. I think the method of not modeling the wall and detailing it in section instead is the way to go.
