I have used schematic CMU to create a building.
We are now updating the schematic walls with real walls..
Where I have a Split-Faced Block (texture is always side only)
I create a nice wall with two parts so that you know which side is rough side
If I draw to the right it is on the top and draw to the left on the bottom
so far so good
The problem is when I replace the existing wall with the New wall
Sometimes the are correct and some time the wall are flipped - in hte wrong direction
It all depends on how the wall was origianlly placed.
HOW DO I CHANG ETHE DIRECTION OF THE WALL SO THAT THE ROUGH SIDE IS ON THE CORRECT SIDE
My work around is to have to walls - one for lefty and one for righty - but now I am not BIM compliant as it messes with a take-off of materials
Before updating the schematic wall, you can view the direction or change the direction of the wall using the tools available in Modify form tools.
1. You could use "Show Form Orientation" tool to display the direction of wall on screen
2. You could use " Modify Form Orientation" tool to change the direction of the schematic wall.
By chance if the schematic wall is already updated with a compound wall, you could still change the direction of the compound wall using the flip in place handle that appears when the compound wall is selected.
