    Walls in 3D Display

    Hello,
    I was wondering if there is a method of showing some of the walls in a project at a lower height than they actually are.
    For example in an isometric view, I would like the walls at the back to be shown as full height, but the ones at the front to be half height so you can see a bit of whats behind it.
    I'd be tempted to copy the project file, and make each wall a shorter height, specifically for those types of views, but I wonder if there's an easier, less messy method, somehow overriding the proprieties in one specific view, while leaving the rest as they are.

    If I didn't explain it very well, here's a link with a similar representations of that I want to achieve.

    Thank you!

    if you are using Revit 2014 or 2015 you might check out displaced views here. It won't make your walls shorter but can move them out of the way so you can see what's behind/inside them
    I'm retired, if you don't like it, go around!

      Depending on your workflow, your consultants and your stage in the projects you might be able to get away with putting the walls into a design option and making them shorter in a non-primary option. Then in your presentation views show the secondary option. I do this for ceilings I want cut by lights and other elements that I want to be visible only in renderings.

        I agree with Dave when you are displacing the walls you can easily move them down in the Z direction giving them the look of being shorter. Plus it is an easy change in the properties window.

          You could create parts from the walls you want to show as 1/2 gone and in the view display the "parts" for those walls and trun off the visibility of the upper part. The full height walls can stay as regular walls.
