    Architrave, Entablature Pediment

    What is the best approach to create classic architrave, entablature in a pediment? I also need to know how to create a cast stone profile that is at the head and jamb of a window.

    Basically, anything that is not already an out of the box Revit family, must be modeled. There are 5 basic methods: extrusion, revolution, sweep, blend, and swept blend. You need to find the 2D profiles that make up these architectural elements, and create the solids, either as families or as in-place objects.

    If it's any help..

    Not for the proportion purist perhaps but I've used Haddonstone cad profiles to sweep moldings and other classical parts:
