Details Configuration


Details Configuration – definition of all detail-placing parameters.



Configuration Name – configuration with all framing settings. You can use sample configurations or create new ones. Also you can rename or delete existing configurations. 


By default, Wall+ detail configurations are saved in C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Tools 4 Revit\Wall+2020 Configurations (or other version)\Details Configurations catalog. The content from this catalog can be copied to other users' computers if needed. Also the path can be changed in Wall+ Settings Configuration Files’ Location.



Details on Bridging/Blocking/Plate, Details on Stud and Bridging/Blocking/Plate Holes



Details on Bridging/Blocking/Plate, Details on Stud and Bridging/Blocking/Plate Holes – different rules for placing details and holes. 

You can very easily predefine different insertion rules for 4 detail families using the 4 tabs across the top of the dialog.


Type and Define Depth (h,d) by Layer Thickness


Type – select a family and type of the detail. 


Sample detail and hole families (Metric or Imperial), which come with Wall+:


 

Width (b) – shows the width, b parameter value from selected family type.


Depth (h, d) – shows the depth, h or d parameter value from selected family type.


Define Depth (h, d) by Layer Thickness – the software will create new type for selected family and change depth value to the wall layer thickness. So the details or holes will fit the layer in the wall.


Insert Details


Insert Details – the details or holes with rules that are listed below will be (not) applied in the frame. You can predefine the rules for the details, but it will not necessarily have to be added during the current insertion process.


Rotate 90°, 180°


Rotate 90°, 180° – if ON, then rotates detail by 90 or 180 degrees. Rotation depends on how the family is created.


Offset from Stud Side


Offset from Stud Side – detail insertion placement: Left, Right, Left and Right, or Center between Two.


Example: when clip angle is inserted on Left and Right sides:


Offset


Offset – distance between detail and a stud.


Example: when clip angle is inserted on Left and Right sides with Offset = 0:


Measure from Location Line/Web Faces

Measure from Location Line – if ON, then the distance for detail placement will be calculated from the Bridging/Nogging/Blocking/Stud location line.


Measure from Web Faces – if ON, then the distance for detail placement will be calculated from the Bridging/Nogging/Blocking/Stud web faces.


Location


Location settings – predefine detail position on top/bottom planes/cover plates, bridgings/noggings, headers, top support headers, sills, etc.


Possible options: 



Include Openings


Include Openings – if ON, then the details will be inserted on elements above and below the openings.



Min Distance between Studs


Min. Distance between Studs – define the minimum distance between studs where details will be inserted. 


Example: In the case below, a detail was not placed between studs that were very close to each other.
