Walls and Curtain
Walls in the Autodesk ® Revit ® Architecture software can range a great
deal in complexity. Early in the design process, walls and curtain walls can
be more generic, essentially serving as vertical containers for space and
function. They can also be associated to masses in order to create incredibly
complex shapes. As the design progresses, these generic walls and curtain
walls can be swapped out for more specific vertical compound walls that
indicate a range of materials as well as geometric sweeps and reveals.
In this chapter, you'll learn to:
Create walls using several different methods
Host elements in walls
Modify wall parameters
Modify and reset wall profiles
Create and customize a curtain wall
Embed a curtain wall in a basic wall
Add/remove grids and add a curtain wall door
Understanding Wall types
and parameters
Revit Architecture has three fundamental types of walls: basic, stacked, and
curtain walls. In this section, we will cover some of the important aspects
of each. This is not intended to be an exhaustive guide to creating and
editing each wall type but rather an overview to provide some background
knowledge before we continue with the exercises throughout this chapter.
