I am working on an office project that contains a series of vertical penetrations surrounded by a 2 hour shaft wall. We are looking for ways to get Revit to understand that this wall type must be closed off from other walls types. Does anyone know how to unjoin different wall types so that, in plan, they cleanly align and do not try to automatically wrap the finishes around each other? I have tried to simply disjoin them at the corners and keep getting strange offsets and gaps. Also, will the room command still work within a room made of non-joined walls?Please let me know if you know!
Solution by Lee Miller:
To unjoin the wall, it’s easier to grab the blue grip, or the wall end control, and move it away from the connected wall. Once the wall end is not connected, right click on the blue grip and select “disallow join”
Walls with disallowed join are not affected by room bounding. This is a separate wall parameter that needs to be turned off. (Ed how is this done?)
