Creating metal stud walls in Revit without extensions !

I wanted to demonstrate how you can use curtain walls in Revit and custom  profile families to create metal stud wall. In the following video you can see how reshaping the wall and adding frame for openings is easily done with the curtain wall tools. For those of you working in the structure field and who are not used of playing with the curtain wall tool,  it really worth giving it a try and pushing the boundaries of this tool.

This method works for standard metal stud walls but if you need to create shop detail I suggest  you have a look at the MWF Pro Wall from StrucSoft solution. This is a really interesting tool. I had the chance to visit them at their office in Montreal few years ago and George Ajami, the president, really stay tuned to his clients feedback.
