Make Walls – Create Variable-Width Walls From Parallel Lines

From the Autodesk App Store:

This tool empowers the user to make walls faster than ever. You will be able to create walls in just a fraction of (based on nature of the project) the time it would take a normal Autodesk® Revit® user to complete his/her task.

Make Walls is used to make walls from a pair of two parallel lines. The user must select a point in between the two parallel lines. The application then drafts a wall along the shorter of the two lines. For e.g., if the distance between two parallel lines in 250 MM, then the tool will automatically calculate the distance between the two parallel lines and make a wall on the line with a shorter length.

Note: This app is free for students and educational purposes. Kindly contact support to receive an educational copy of the plugin.

Benefits of this app.
  1. The user does not need to calculate the distance between two lines. The plugin automatically calculates the distance and makes a wall of that thickness.
  2. If a wall of defined width does not exist, the plugin automatically creates a wall of that width, you just have to input the name of the new wall.
  3. The plugin can be run in two modes. Make walls by selecting two lines and Make walls by selecting a point between two lines.

Complete plugin process.
