The Purpose of Wall Functions

When you create a new wall type, there’s a construction parameter called function.  It has various options, like “Exterior” and “Foundation.”  You might be wondering which one to pick – does it make a difference?  What are the different wall functions for?

Wall function matters for filtering views and organizing wall schedules.  You can set up a view to show only exterior walls, for example.

Some functions also affect the default instance values when you go to create a wall.  For instance, a foundation will default to a base offset of -12 feet and a top constraint up to the level you are working on.
