NOTICE: I just noticed that the entire video recorded with ZERO sound.  I will re record this video and re-upload it as soon as I can.  Until then, my sincerest apologies for making you guess what I’m talking about 🙂

An easy quick tip to start off the day.  Phasing can be a pain to even the most seasoned Revit veterans, and hopefully I can help you out with a little in-fill issue you may have in the future.  When you demolish a door, window or any wall cutting object out of a wall, it replaces that former opening with an in-fill wall.  This wall has no phase information but can be replaced with ANY wall type you have already defined.  If you have a scenario where you want to replace the in-fill area with a different wall type (say you have a CMU/Concrete building and just want to in-fill with stud walls), this tip is going to be right up your alley!

  1. Demolish your wall cutting object
  2. In your next phase view, select the in-fill create by the previous demolition.
  3. Choose the wall type you wish to use.
  4. Choose the location line alignment.
  5. Voila!  Quick, easy and painless!

Nice simple one to start off the week.  I’ll see you all next time for another, Revit TotD!
