    Walls on the floor, facade question

    Edited!
    Facade needs to bee totally clear and smooth, of course you shouldnt see floors, and my question would be, how to make facade smooth ? so that floors and walls could count as 1 wall for instance

        Ahhh, yes that helps.
        This can only be done if you have the same material applied to both your walls and floors. In this case when you Join Walls and Floors the lining will disappear.
        If they're not the same material you could try using the Paint tool on the floors, but I don't know if that would make the lining disappear when joining.
        If all else fails, You can use linework to manually reset all the lines to invisible lines, but you need to do this in all plotviews seperately since this is a view override.

          Another alternative is to make your model as it is going to be built. If you don't want to see the edges of the slab, but the wall finish passing trough from one floor to the next floor above, then, make your walls with finish layers. Edit the wall properties, so that the exterior finish layer is unlocked. Then, from a section view, click on the exterior finish layer of the wall. Drag the blue arrow until that layer goes up to the finish layer of the wall above. Then use Join geometry between the two walls to erase the seam.

            Alfredo has made the number one tip when using Revit.....model it like your building it..
            I've fallen into the trap many times thinking it's a generic modeller!

              Exactly my thoughts as well, the first question should be "Have I modelled this how it will be built" hence the term "Virtual building modelling" which is what we all should be trying to acheive in our models, an accurate model of how it will be built

              But for schematic purposes, you could hide these lines two ways
              1. Setting your shade mode to have edges turned off, but this will affect all elements
              2. Override projection lines for these particular walls with a color that matches the shade of the wall, assuming they are the same shade material color
