Hello all. The project that I'm working on uses a type of compound wall that I've been unable to find in any Revit families. Is it even possible to load different wall types into a project? I notice that when you select "Component", the "Load" button appears so that different families can be uploaded; however, no such button appears when the "wall" tool is selected. Just for reference, the wall I want to model is the Tacoma compound wall system. It's constructed of units made of two panels of heavy-duty foam with a peice of plastic connecting them, creating a gap into which concrete is site-poured once the panels are assembled. The result is a very strong bearing wall that is self-insulating. Also, I'm using Revit 2008 (in case the version matters). Thanks everyone, and happy holidays!

You can transfer wall types from model to model using the "Transfer Project Standards" under the file pull down menu.  If you don't have the wall type in a model, you would need to make the wall type.  I would make the two layers of heavy-duty foam with a layer of concrete in the middle.  The plastic connecting pieces might just have to be shown with detail components.  HTH

How do I go about modeling a new wall type? Is it the done the same way a new furniture family is made?

What I do is pick a similar wall. Hit the edit button. Then duplicate it, calling it what I want and then modify it how I need it.
