    2nd Floor Walls Shorter than 1st Floor

    So, I just can't figure this out, so please help!

    Here is what I'm trying to do. I want the 1st floor walls to be 100' x 75' and the 2nd floor walls to be 100' x 50'. Well, every time I change the length of the walls on the 2nd floor, it changes it on the other floors. So how can I separate that?

    Thank you!

      1st....Make sure your 1st floor walls are set to 1st to 2nd floor only....not unconnected 20' (default).... Then... draw in your 2nd floor walls accordingly.

          I think the OP must mean that he's got a 100x75 building layout in plan, and that he wants the upstairs to be smaller so he tries dragging one of the upstairs wall inward, and the problem for him is that the 1st floor wall also moves inward, which he doesn't want. I'm guessing somebody aligned and locked the walls to each other.

            if the first floor walls at one point in time were tall enough to touch the walls on the second floor then they have become "associated" to the walls above, even after correcting the height. The top of the first floor walls need to be lowered enough so that Revit no longer has the associativity to the walls above, then by moving the walls above the lower walls will no longer go along for the ride.

              Yeah, no. There is no such association created automatically by Revit. It only happens if you lock the walls together.

                Actually....try it... Have walls from Level 1 that go above Level 2....draw in your walls based on the walls below. You will get an overlapping wall error... Change the lower walls to up to Level 2...then move a wall on level 1... Guess what? The walls on level 2 will move. The Lock was never used.

                    Aha! You guys are right! Sorry, I've never had that happen before in six years worth of Reviting.
