Paneling Configuration


Paneling Configuration – allows you to configure and save settings for the paneling layouts. These settings can be saved and linked with wall layer using Link Wall. By using this configuration, you can model insulation and ventilated facades in your Revit project!

A ventilated facade is designed so that panels – often made of technical ceramics or porcelain – cover the building’s exterior, leaving a space for air to flow between the structural wall and the facade, creating a chimney effect all around the building.

Using Paneling Configuration you can predefine insulation and external paneling setting for your Revit project.

Insulation or panels are created using Revit Parts. In order to see the panels or insulation, you have to select Show Parts or Show Both in View PropertiesParts Visibility.

These settings can be saved and linked with wall layer using Link Wall.

Paneling Dimensions

Paneling Dimensions – predefine vertical and horizontal paneling sizes (Width and Length).

Paneling Layout

Paneling Layout – predefine settings for creating the paneling.

Special Layout

Special Layout – place for applying special layout that can't be defined with regular Paneling Dimensions. To enable all possible options switch on Enable Special Layout.

Split Type – all possible layout rule.

Division Profile

Horizontal/Vertical Gap – specifies the distance between divided horizontal and vertical parts. The default value is 0, which results in no gap.

Note that if Always Try to Merge Parts is ticked ON, Gap will not be applicable.

Horizontal/Vertical Division Profile – apply the pre-loaded profile you select from the drop-down list to part edges along dividers. The default value is None.

Horizontal/Vertical Profile Edge Mirrored – specify how the profiles on the other side of a divider gap will be oriented.

Mark Settings

Mark Settings – predefine default values for these parameters. The parameters can be later used in schedules and tags.

Part Detail Configuration and Framing Configuration – you can predefine default configurations to be added to every part.

Detail configuration comes from Smart Connections. Smart Connections can instantly add any number of face-specific intelligent details – which adapt to host-element changes – throughout BIM models.

Example: Insulation fasteners are automatically added to every insulation:


Opening – predefine top, bottom, left, and right paneling offsets from the window, door, or MEP opening.

L Connection, V Connection, End Connection, T Connection

L Connection, V Connection, End Connection, T Connection – predefine paneling settings for different wall connections.

Layer Extension – distance from a wall face.

Example: For the free end connection Layer Extension = 6:

Split at Stud – define the number of stud where the panel must be split.

Example: Split at Stud = 1:

Build in Place – writes Yes/No information into the panel instance parameter if it is build-in-place or is prefabricated together with whole wall frame. Later this parameter can be used in schedules or view filters.

Excluded – removes the panel (part) from the model. Excluded panels are only visible when under the cursor and will not be included in schedules.
