Align Walls


Align Walls is used to correct  "sligthly off axis" walls which sometimes occur when you have modelled after a dwg-file or point cloud with minor inaccuracies, joined walls that are slightly off from each other, rotated your project to the wrong angle or simply not drawn your walls as precise as you would have liked to.

You can align one or more walls to be perpendicular or orthographical to another wall, a gridline or a coordinate system.

 The second function, Quick Align Walls, is used to quickly align one or more walls to a integer angle against the internal coordinate system - meaning that if your wall is 42,1º it will be aligned to 42º. 42.5º would be rounded up.

To use this function you will need to pre-select one or more walls and then the button will be activated.
Quick Align has no windows or settings, so the help below explains the Align Walls function.


When you start the Align Walls function, you will first decide against which reference you would like to align your walls.


If you choose, as in the picture on the right, to align towards a picked element(s), this element will be picked at the very end of the function.
Note the "(s)", you can align to several references at the same time.



 In the next window, decide whether you want to make walls parallel and/or orthographical to the reference.


The maximum angle is used to limit which walls the function should attempt to align - for off-axis walls, leave this at small degrees, for correcting walls on a larger scale, simple increase the angle. Max setting is 10º.






The very last step is where you select which walls the function should affect - pre-selected walls, all visible or every single wall in the entire project.

Be aware that also walls in Design Options will be aligned.


Please note that you might have other objects in your project, such as elevations, area/room lines or ceilings that might need readjusting after the walls have been aligned.


As always in Revit, be careful with walls that are in groups - results might be slightly unpredictable.
