I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to join two walls of different widths at their ends and join them together with a 45 deg. fill at where they join? Walls are colinear on the interior, one wall is 10" thick the other is 24" thick and are the same wall style. I'm using Revit Building 2008, and I've tried to figure out a way to do it with edit wall join command and the cut and join geometry commands, but I'm a self taught new user and don't have a clue as to how these commands are used.  The walls are adobe blocks, which are 10"w x 14" l x 4"h. The 24" thick walls are created by laying a double wythe wall with blocks laid both length and widthwise to get the 24" thickness.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Use the "Edit Wall Joins" tool and click the "Miter" radio button on the design bar. This will give the wall an angled join. It won't be 45 degrees though, because the walls are not the same thickness. It will blend from the inside corner to the outside corner.

Thanks for the response, but I tried to use the edit wall command with mitre option (only available choice), selected the wall join to edit (where the two ends meet),the joint highlights but nothing happens. I tried all of the display options (use view setting, clean join, don't clean join) and clicked on the previous and next configurations but cannot get the walls to fill where they meet. Am I missing something?

I am not sure I am fully understanding your problem. If you could post a screenshot or something, I may be able to figure it out.
