    How to cut/delete finish layer?

    I want to remove finish layer where i have greet boarder (in picture). Should i duplicate and, split some walls etc, or there is easy way to do it?

    If it only occurs in this view, I would use the 'cut profile' tool. You can find it on the view tab.
    Be aware that it does not affect the actual 3d model but only how it represents in the view. Which is why I avoid using them if there are many views that need to represent the same, then I would look at splitting walls.

      I´d use different wall types (split walls), otherwise you´ll mess up the quantity takeoffs - Besides, I hate all these "2D Cheats" Model it as it will be built.

        I would look at using the new "Parts" tool in 2012.

        Jean wrote a good tutorial for the new tool. It can be found at http://revitforum.org/showthread.php...small-tutorial

          Munkholm is correct, it is a cheat, and will mess up your quantity takeoffs(if you're using your model for that). I wish we had the ability to dynamically pull/push,start/stop, layers of walls floors and roofs, similar to the way we can with walls in section.

          The parts tool in 2012 is not useful IMO as it only applies to the objects you create parts from. And does not affect the model, but rather duplcates those objects. I won't be doing that to my entire model.

              Plus it's view specific, so again like the cut profile tool you'll be doing it in every view you need to show this detail in.

              Different wall types, not that much work (until you start messing with wall join locations >_>) and comes out nice and tidy

                Not to mention Wall Schedules/Take-off quantities, etc............Oops, I mentioned it anyway!

                I agree w/ Munk--build the model like it will be built in the field, in most cases.

                cheers

                  definately different wall types. This will bug you with every new plan view you create and you'll end up losing a lot more time then you gained now. If any! What would be faster: select three walls, Edit the Location Line so they will stay put when edited, remove layer. OR: Cut Profile, sketch lines, finish, redo for next wall, redo for next wall. My guess is: the "honest" way is way faster, even for one view.
