    Structural Wall Shear Keys

    Does anyone know how to create the shapes needed to make a wall look like is has a notch at the bottom for a shear key and a groove along the top for a second row of wall to sit inside? I originally just used a generic wall and created a wall reveal that would remove the sections of wall I wanted, but in the 3D view, the channels and notches do not intersect. Does anyone know how to make these?

    Thank you.

    Try Revit Parts

    Create parts from you walls, then divide the parts with a notch Division Profile.

    Thank you for your help, that worked. Do you know if there is a way to make walls shaped like a "T" have the notches connect instead of having one of the notches stop at the edge of the other wall?

    Place a face-based notch on the part where you want to connect the notches.
