    infill wall

    Hi Guys,
    Is there a way to show infill wall outline with dashed lines on elevation view, other than linework tool? Thanks.

    Nope. Not that I know off.

      I'm going to record this here just in case someone else comes looking for it. Here was my similar situation: wanted to show the wall infill in elevation with a solid line and hatch inside.

      The linework tool didn't help me at all. But I was able to select the wall (in plan) and change it to a different wall type. In this case, we're keeping things simple, so the existing wall being infilled is 'Generic - 7" '. So I selected the infill, clicked "Edit Type" and duplicated the type and renamed it 'Generic - 7" infill'. So far so good, but since they have the same properties and an 'infill' doesn't allow the 'join' circles, I couldn't just 'unjoin' the wall segments. I found one recommendations to put in an opening, then add another wall inside the opening and keep it from joining the main wall. Didn't really like that idea, but once I discovered I could change the infill wall type, I opted to change it's structural material to something that had a pattern. Great - now I have a hatch that looks like wood infill - excellent! But there's not line ... back to the type properties ... what does this 'Wraping at Inserts' do? Change that to "Both" and voila!

      So that's the long version. Here's the steps:
      1) In a plan view, select the wall infill
      2) Change the infill to another wall type - I did this by duplicating the host type
      a) Change 'Wrapping at Inserts' to "Both"
      b) Change structure material (at least finish side) to material with appropriate hatch

      The best part: this little cabin has one door and one window being infilled - I fixed the wall at the door and to fix the window, all I had to do was select and choose the infill wall type. LOVE IT!

      After 2a, you can use the linework tool to change the "wrap" to dashed. This doesn't eliminate the OP's question - but gets me where I wanted to be.

        You can select the object and override in view.

          That's an option. I tried it and it showed a pattern change, but I couldn't get the outline to show.

            You can override lines as well. Or you need only one line to be overrided? If so, only linework tool.

              The problem is, in elevation, there is no line to over-ride in this situation:

              Once I convinced Revit the infill was different than the host wall, the outline could be dealt with:

                I want the infill wall outline to be displayed as dashed lines (see pix). I can easily set up a filter and have infill wall with dashed outline, but the problem is the host opening outline (which overlays infill wall outline) have to be invisible or dashed as well. Having solid line instead of dashed is easier to achieve.

                Some time ago I exchanged a few PM’s with Alfredo about this, but despite his great help and effort (thanks Al!) I couldn’t make it work.

                Played with the phase filter a little too, …all for nothing, I’m using linework tool after all.

                  I would consider using Filters & a View Template for VG to go with it. The Linework tool and Overriding By Element should be considered last ditch efforts.

                    Not sure if it's possible. You can try, hiding the wall and drawing dashed lines on the same spot
