    Door/Architrave sweep...

    Hey folks,

    Just getting into creating revit families and was just wondering whether it is possible (and if so how difficult/time consuming) it is to create a door architrave with mitred corners, rather than one long sweep? Presumably I'd have to create a sweep for the side, and a sweep for the top of the door and then use a boolean subtraction to mitre them together? Or would a simple join command work just as well?

    I ask this because I am making these doors with a view to creating photoreal visuals in 3ds max and it would be a lot easier to map various wood grains to seperate parts of the door frame, rather than having it go in the wrong direction because the whole thing was created as a sweep. I can post an image of what i'm trying to achieve if that's necessary (made some doors before in sketchup/3ds max).

    That'd be nice. Kind of hard to help you otherwise.

      Yes this is all acheivable. I would make them as seperate components and nest them in your door family. Is the architrve just a flat (rectangular) section ? if so maybe use an extrusion to avoid to mitre problem, If they have a profile make them as a sweep and use a void to cut the miter.

      If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.
