Framing Configuration may be found in two locations:
1. Choose Framing Configuration from Wall+M menu.
2. Choose Configuration Type that corresponds to framing layer of the wall.
3. Select L Connection, End Connection, V Connection or T Connection.
L Connections, End Connections, and T Connections are supplemented with options that bring further flexibility for predefining outer corners, B (Butt) outer corners, inner corners, or B (Butt) inner corners.
Wall+M recognizes inner and outer corners so that you can adjust different joins. It gives you more flexibility in modeling and easily handles complex situations:
Example with inner corner: You can predefine and change Butt connections
Framing End Extension
Framing End Extension - makes frame offset from the wall connection.
Lengthen Top/Bottom Plates
Lengthen Top/Bottom Plates – makes top and bottom plate offset from the wall connection.
Split or Shorten up to Stud
Split or Shorten up to Stud – splits or makes the top/bottom plates shorter.
Split at Stud – select the number of the stud where the top/bottom plates should be split or shortened.
E.g. Bottom plate is split at the third stud from the right.
Build in Place and Link to Connected Wall
Build in Place – writes Yes/No information into the plate instance parameter if plate is build-in-place or is prefabricated with the whole wall frame.
Link to Connected Wall – option if the plate is near a wall corner and such an element should be prefabricated and connected to the connecting wall.
A plate like this will have Link to Connected Wall or Build in Place parameter switched ON:
Default path to database with join configurations is:
C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Tools 4 Revit\Wall+M2020 (or other version) Configurations\CustomFramingJoins
You can also modify the path to all configurations in Configuration Files‘ Location.
Samples of various joins
Disallow Join Walls
Let's say we have a situation when a wall is connected in the plan view, but it disallowed to join in Revit. By default, Wall+M will recognize this situation as T connection:
To solve this, select joiner wall and find instance or type parameter Ignore Disallowed Joint Connection, make it ON. If it has such parameter with value = ON, T join will not be created.
Go to Wall+M → Update Frame → no more T connection:
