    Floor & Wall

    Hi there,

    Some of the team have noticed something quite odd, which I have never seen before and I can't seem to find any information on it.

    We have created a series of facade walls, these are both basic walls and curtain walls. The floors have been created for each level of the building it the appropriate place.

    We have had to change the type of some of the walls, which are thicker (or thinner) however when doing this, it seems to mess up the floor footprint. It seems that at one end of the wall, the floor edge moves to the centre line of the adjusted wall, where the other end will remain wher it was first placed.

    The floors were not created using the select wall tools, it seems they were all created using the sketch method., nothing has been aligned or locked either.

    This will the throw an error with the "lines slightly off axis" and obviously produces inaccurate models.
    Has anyone else com across this and if so, can you tell me why it is doing it?

    I usually don't use that function for creating floors but it may have something to do with wall location lines.

      When you sketch a floor and snap to wall's points, the sketch will by locked to these points even if you have not locked padlockcs.
      If you change a thickness of a wall, the sketch will adjust.
      If you copy/paste a floor to the level above and edit wall's thickness then both floors will adjust so be carefull of invisible constraints.

        Some will disagree, but I use the pick wall tool, extend into core for most structural floors, then finish floors go to face of wall. You have to watch out for little line segments or parallel walls, but I believe this is how revit was intended to be used and I rarely have problems, when I move the wall, the floors go with it as intended(most of the time
