Hi,

I'm working in an office building project, where we have existing building,s ome of existing the walls are going to be demolished and some are staying, siding finishing will be replaced by stucco, how do I demolish only the siding layer and replace it with stucco ?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi. 2 options:

 

A-

1- Create parts from the wall.

2- Make sure the original is part of the existing phase.

3- Demolish the part in the new construction.

4- Create a new wall (finish part) to be part of the new construction.

 

 

B-

1-Create a new phase between existing and new

2- Place the original in existing

3- Create one with the domlished part in the in-between phase

4- Create the new wall in the new construction

 

If you find a better method, please share.

I was trying your first option and when I try to demolish a part Revit won't let me select one individual part, Am I missing something?

Well I'm not really sure but let me just guess:

1- Make sure the original wall is set to the existing phase

2- Select wall and make parts

3- Select part you need to demolish, go to prop. uncheck phase demolished, choose new construction for phase demolished.

Ali,

Thanks a lot , the answer to my problem was number 3. after I selected the part that I want to demolish I had to uncheck phase demolished by orginal check box.
