How to Create a Stepped Wall in Autodesk Revit

When we place a wall in Revit, we set a length and a height. We do this by picking a start point and end point to set the length, and for the height we set a base constraint and a top constraint with any offsets required. This creates a rectangular wall.

Setting Length and Height of Wall

If we wanted a stepped wall, we could draw separate pieces of wall and then with either levels to constrain to, or offsets we can change heights/depths.

But we also have another option that I think is easier. If we select the wall and look on the ribbon, we see an option to edit the profile.

This give us an editable boundary line (magenta colour) and our sketching tools.

Draw Options

Sketch the shape/steps you would like and click the big green tick.

You can edit your wall boundary shape as required to give many weird and wonderful walls styles.

And just in case, there is also a reset profile button to ‘reset’ back to a rectangular wall.
