    create an in-place family of wall. Ribbon Component, in-place.
    you will be allowed to model with appropriate tools. and even put parameters.

      yeah it works as you said thanks for this but this lead me to question where i can find structure inside edit type or what i am supposing to do to show it to give it brick material inside structure ?

        In Place walls cannot have layers like normal walls. So you have a "normal" Wall with a brick and insulation layer and on the outside the rounded In-Place Wall. Group those two together for better coordination.

          You didn't assign it a brick material. Edit the Properties of the in-place wall, and then assign a material.

          Then, go buy this book: http://www.amazon.com/Mastering-Auto...3962481&sr=8-2

          as it will really help you learn Revit. I also suggest you take some classes as well. This forum (and others) are useful for some questions, but trying to learn Revit on your own without any training or any books as resources will be very difficult.

              But not impossible... I learned it all by myself... Wasn't sold here in Holland when I started, let alone being able to take classes.
              Did take me quite some time though!

              check out www.dgcad.com / cadclips.com. They have great starter videos (and a YouTube-channel btw). But I would really urge you to buy the book. This series is the best there is IMHO.

                Just curious: in your user profile panel (on the left), for "Revit Version:" you wrote "I do not have it yet" What do you mean by that?

                    Most often this kind of condition isn't really "solid". We "draw" it that way because it is easier to draw an arc and a couple straight lines. Another way to look at it is to sketch with thin walls that represent the framing and veneer that would actually get used. Or as in the image...the brick laid up with a cavity behind it... It's useful to think more about how it gets built and then model it...or "model it like you'd build it"

                    If the depth of the arc was different at the base than the top, creating a leaning condition then the massing tools and wall by face or just a in-place wall would get you there. Build each layer you want and assign the layers to materials to mimic the compound "easy" walls.

                    If it is a design feature added to a wall, like custom millwork I'd favor a family approach.
