    wall panel sweeps

    I have added a 1 metre x 20mm timber wall panel sweep to my existing interior walls. All is working well except when i get to the end of a wall section, as indicated in the image. Within the wall properties 'edit structure' dialogue, am I missing a 'wrap' option for the sweep right in front of my eyes or do I need to create a unique wall layer to place on each exposed end?

    If the picture looks wierd it's because there's no floor

    No and no...
    You're not missing the "wrap sweep" option.
    But you also don't need to create an extra wall. Select the sweep in 3D and it will give you the option to change the return and after that align it to any face you want. See attached

    ....So i modified my wall sweep and it wraps into the window (negge). but I have a facade which is 80m long with many windows which all need this sweep modification. is there a way to make a small piece this way and then copy it to multiple floors and windows. if I do this; copy it to the level above it loses its modifications. is the a way to make mantain this sweep when I copy it?

    Hi Lennart, welcome to the forum. You're Dutch I presume?
    Anyway, with this amount of sweeps you'd probably be better of building a wall/face based, Line Based Generic Model. It's fairly easy to make such a family to have all kinds of parametric endings.
