    Can you make a wall sweep with a (6" x 12") pattern?

    Is there a way to make a wall sweep that could host/have a pattern to it? I would like to make it for my restroom cove base tile. Any advice greatly appreciated!
    Please see attached screenshot!!! thank you in advance oh great Revit community!!!

    All it takes is making the sweep and applying the correct material to it.

    I model my tile floors as roofs and apply the cove base as fascias. But you may annoy somebody by not being "revit pure"

    No need to use the roof category - you can add base to floor families as 'slab edges'. This is more appropriate that adding as a wall sweep, in my opinion, as the base trim is more associated to the flooring type than to the wall type. Using tools like Dynamo or RevDesign to build your finish floors precisely to the extent of the room element in that location makes applying a continuous slab edge incredibly easy and fast.

    I have a pre-made set of 'slab edges' that represent the basic set of base treatments - Rigid Vinyl, Wood, Tile, etc. The end user can adjust the final size, and define the appropriate material to them by type.

    a) Create new PROFILES for each base shape. (Label dims to enable resizing control to the end user). Load into project.
    b) in the project, create new 'slab edge' types and apply the appropriate profile. Slab edges already have a material setting built in.

    The reasoning behind roofs over floors is that a fascia can be applied to a sloped roof (ramp) where a slab edge can only be placed on a flat slab. Also, roofs grow up where floors grow down so there is no need to offset a roof up the thickness of the finish material. Also, for floors with no thickness I create a model line (with its own type) to host the fascias.
