    Angry Create extrusion with sinuous-line shaped surface

    Dear all,
    I am trying to create a Revit extrusion with a sinuous-line shaped surface.
    - extrusion should be variable in size (length, width, height)
    - one side shoud have ripples "sinuous-line shaped surface"
    - size of ripples should stay constant only the number of ripples should change when flexing

    I tried to work with
    - line based family
    - profile family
    - sweep with one of the above -> did not work
    - extrusion of one of the above -> did not work

    None lead to the desired result.
    -- Any hints for me --
    cheers
    Michael

    Create a family of 1 desired ripple, not a profile, just a generic model family with 1 off your repeating unit. Make that variable in width, length, height.

    Nest that into another Family (could be line-based if desired, I wouldn't do it personally), make an array of your unit there. ink your parameters to the host family.

    Have a slightly modified version of your ripple family with a void on one end that cuts away part of the ripple length, use that one to fill out any length that is left after all the full ripples are placed.

    Thanks Bjorn_K,
    this does the job !!!
    I needed some tries with the nesting (Revit seems sometimes erratic in that).
    But finally it works.
    Thanks Again
