    either way the corner has to get hand fixed on site, so your at the discretion of the operative to do it, do you think they are really that unskilled that they can't carry out that kind of work..

    Louis Kahn once said "Listen to the man who works with his hands.........many times, he can show you a better way of doing it...."

    Anyway i got it to work using the embedded wall sweeps.

    try your method with 1/8" or 3/16" thick aluminum plate parapet caps. That's what I detail a lot of. Like I said, your way isn't wrong for the material you are using and the situation that you are in but for us, we can't fix it in the field and it has nothing to do with skill level.

    I'd like to see a screen shot of your "fix" using embedded wall sweeps...

    I'm just curious, buy why even model the flashing? Why not just take care of it in the details?

    We model every parapet cap on the build. Its visibile, and you see it from everywhere. Plus, there are coordination issues that get caught all the time when theyre in the model.

    I model the cap as well, or the EIFS cornice, but I don't worry about the flashing. It just seems like over modeling to me. <shrug>

    Not sure if anyone mentioned it, but if the 2 profiles are connected can't you just join geometry?

    I model flashings too, so I can schedule them for QTO but I think that we were talking about parapet caps not flashings

    Yeah, I think you're right. I read the title, which said flashing. But the image shows the cap.
