HOW TO EXCLUDE CURTIAIN WALLS FROM REVIT WALL SCHEDULES

Revit makes curtain walls fall into the WALLS category, which is pretty inconvenient most of the times, at least for me. When it comes to scheduling I always need to differentiate curtain walls from regular walls, in the end the on-site works are performed by radically different contractors. Here´s one of many possible solutions:
1.-Create your wall schedule adding a TYPE COMMENTS field.

2.-Go to the "Filter" tab. You'll see that if you try to filter out the curtain walls by family or type....well there's no option for that!!!!! One of Revit's many mysteries.

3.-Filter out by TYPE COMMENTS by choosing "does not contain" and write "Curtain wall" or whatever you want to tell them apart from regular walls.

4.-No go back to your model, isolate all curtain walls and go to "Edit Type". In the "Type comments" field write "Curtain wall" just as you did in the Schedule Properties Filter dialogue.


5.-Go back to your shedule and now you only have regular walls. Curtain walls excluded!!!
