    pocket door will not cut base sweep

    I have a standard family "double-pocket" door that will not cut through my wall base sweep. I have made the sweep cuttable and cuts walls, but the sweep still runs right though the middle of my wall.

    Would it make more sense to just model in place a wall extrusion as my base instead?

    Can you post the project so we can try and see where the problem is ?

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

      Change the profile of the wall sweep so that the "origin" of the sweep is an inch above the ground level, instead of right at the base. Im betting the problem goes away...

        I tried this and it just raised the base an inch off the ground. The base no longer cut through the frame, but it still cut through the door.

        Here's a screen shot of the door:

          Can you include a screen shot from the Profile Family?

              I think this should be the other way around:
              Place the profile down 1", then reload and move the sweep in total up 1" so it's back in his original place. Now the sweep line runs through the door and should be cut.

                Yessir... That is what i meant... The "origin" of the profile ill be an onch higher than it is currently, but then raise the sweep so it is in the correct location. Works fine over here...

                  But from the answer in post #4 I get the idea he worked precisely the other way around (since the sweep should lower an inch after the initial reload, not move up) And in that case it won't work...
