    Aaron area you also separating out partitions with fire rated gyp. board? In my previous firm everything was type based: sound attenuation, rating, U.L., STC, etc. We ended up with countless wall types in the model. My thought was, using the system you showed here, fire rating could be an instance based or 'is fire rated' could be instance based, with the actual fire rating being type based. Either way if you moved to a more instance based method, creating unique wall types for each unique gypsum material is no longer necessary. How are you handling this? I also use the drafting view method for the actual detail. I use material keynotes for detailing exterior walls but never use them for detailing interior partitions that is what the standard drafting views are fot. The only benefit of modeling each gypsum type in that scenario is material take-off - BUT using the instance parameters those take ofsa could he handled other ways.

    We use Type X everywhere, even on non rated walls. Saves time, effort, complexities in managing different materials on site.

    Every contractor I know just buys Type X (5/8" typically) so they don't have to deal with the headache. The cost difference per board is easily made up for in labor savings. And from what I've been told the major supply houses even carry 5/8" board in a non-rated board, whether that is Type-X or Type C.
