Problem in creating Walls

823 Views, 3 Replies

When creating a partition wall, the following messages appeared:


" Highlighted walls overlap. One of them may be ignored when Revit finds room boundaries. Use Cut Geometry to embed one wall within the other."  or


" None of the created elements are visible in 3D View: {3D} View. You may want to check the active view, its Parameters, and Visibility settings."


What`s the problem ?:smileyindifferent:

Sounds like a simple visibility issue. Likely causes are:


  • The Walls Category is turned off.
  • A View FIlter under V/G is turning the Wall off.
  • The current Workset is turned off.
  • View Range: Cut Plane is above the Wall.

See if any of the above is the cause. If not, just reply back.

A partition wall is a non-bearing wall. So it won't show up in your default 3D view... or in nother views with it;s discipline on Structural. Change the disipline of the the view, or the structural usage of the wall.
