    In Place Sweep

    I'm tring to put E.I.F.S. cornice around my building. It has a gable roof, with some 3" bump outs (for a column effect).

    First problem, I can't get it to work with a wide profile. I think it's because of the bump outs. So, instead of the cornice covering the entire wall thickness, it has to fall short. This isn't a huge problem, but I'd like a fix if anyone has one.

    Second problem is huge. Revit is rotating the gable ends inward for some reason. You can really notice it at the top of the cornice, It's almost at a 30* angle. It should be level.

    Here's an attachment. It's hard to see what's going on. I can post more stuff if you need it.

    Here's the kicker. It's for a meeting tomorrow morning. So............HELP! :hide:

      I'll try. It's pretty big. It's 7G still and that's just exterior walls and the sweep. Along with all the other crap in the default template.

      How do I make it smaller? I've purged it already.

          Sorry dan, but the mail didn't come through. And since it's 2am, I'm taking off...
          Tried to recreate your problem but it's working fine for me. Only thing I can think off right now is counter-rotating your sweep profile. Have you tried using a wall sweep or roof fascia instead of the in place family?

            To get the file smile, grab JUST those few walls and the sweep, and copy and paste them in to a blank file created from no template.

            But, i loaned my work rig to one of our Architects for a meeting, so i cant look at it at home.

              Aaron, for that purpose, I usually group what I want to extract and then convert it to a linked file.

                Dan you will get this issue if you don't do one extra return line (the overall width of your profile) see image 1.
                This is actually correct and the only way to get all the corners to miter properly. (image 2.) but doing this governs th overall heigth of the gable moulding and in elevation it will probably not look like the effect you are after but like I said it is the correct geometry.

                This is not somthing you see very often in OZ, in the real world aren't they are seperate mouldings ? The roof determines the gable moulding position and the level moulding is determined by returned brickwork ? (image 3-4)

                I did mine with the good old model line - fascia trick.

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

                    Yep, get to know the fascia tool, it can be your best friend.
                    Here is another example of how it can be used post #9
