    Default Joining parallel stacked walls

    I'm a new user of Revit. Is it possible to join parallel stacked walls that have 1" of space between them?

    The wall construction of a building I'm working on consists of 5" deep precast concrete base with 4" brick above. Behind this construction is 1" air space followed by the wall base of poured concrete with a sheathed metal stud and gwb construction. I tried a stacked wall with all components. Because the exterior has 4" jogs, I was unable to join corners properly. Consequently, I created 2 stacked walls. One for the exterior, one for the interior separated by 1". Adding windows and doors would work better if the walls were joined.

    Could you recommend a better way of accomplishing the revit modeling of the walls?

    Welcome to the forum!

    Would this not just be easier as 1 stacked wall with a cavity?

    Thank you for responding.

    I originally created a cavity stacked wall. This would have worked out fine if it was not for the corners. The building has 2' wide piers at the corners that protrude 4" from the wall. I could not get all the varies parts of the stacked wall to join properly. Perhaps you could suggest the best way to join the corners. I have attached a revit file of the corner condition

    Its a tricky one! You could do two architectural columns which take on the material of the wall they are embedded in, and you can make them the appropriate size.

    Doesn't work too great with the profile tool tho.
