    How to create a chamfer box

    Hello, I am doing some massing, and i was wondering how do you create a chamfer box, like one in the picture:

    In Revit there is no fillet tool for solids, like there is in other programs. One possible solution is this: use a void with filleted interior corners, to cut the solid cube in 3 different directions, one at a time. See illustration.

      You can also start with a box (extrusion) w/ filleted edges and two voids as per Alfredo's example instead of three

        How do you create a profile for the void? Like two seperate rectangles?

          Yes, it would be like two separate rectangles but they have to be part of the same sketch for the extrusion. The reason is that the the double lines create a sort of shell, with the interior part having no geometry and the offset of the rectangles give the void a "thickness" (anything that intersects this thickness will be subtracted from the box)

            That's what I was thinking, but it seams I can't get to cut the box... I get this error message when I select two rectangles, and click void

              It can also be achieved with one chamfered extrusion and one "chamfer sweep" that cuts both top and bottom of the box.

              This, and all previous suggestions, will only get you chamfered edges though... To also chamfer the corners (as the linked example in the OP), you´ll need to create the corners by 90 degree revolves... Like in these attachments :beer:

              Edit: In the attached example, I made the corners in a different material to make them stand out - instead, use "Join Geometry" to make the box appear as one solid

                Thank you for reply.
                Could you give me some step to step instruction, since I have proublems creating that shape...
                I was wondering if I could add a parameter for chamfer radius?
                This is what I am looking for to be more specific:

                  Extruding with more then one polygon doesn't work in the new mass environment.
                  That's a regrettable step backwards in Revit's program architecture.
