I would like to add a C- channel detail on to my typical wall.  How do I go about creating this profile so that I can load it in the structural properties of the wall as a sweep? 

 When I go to add a sweep only 1 profile shows up and it's not the one i want to use.

 Thanks!

You must create your sweep profile in a "CREATE - NEW FAMILY -METRIC TEMPLATES (IMPERIAL TEMPLATES) - METRIC PROFILE.RFT" after create them "save as" and "load into project", then, go "MODELLING" - "HOST SWEEP" - "HALL SWEEP", go to properties and click "edit/new", in "constrution" - "profile" open and choose the sweep profile you want, then "apply" and "ok", go to the walls and pick them...

Thanks for the info, but when I hit create it brings up the family category and parameters menu.  ie, casework, ceilings, columns....etc.  which family do I chose?  or does it matter?

 Thanks again!

what are you doing is "COMPONENT" "CREATE IN PLACE" and then shows up "FAMILY CATEGORY AND PARAMETERS" ISN'T?

What i told you is "FILE"-"NEW"-"FAMILY" and choose "METRIC PROFILE.RFT" or "IMPERIAL PROFILE.RFT" depends how do you work, then create your sweep profile and do the rest i told you before...

I'm confused.  Where is "File" "New" "Profile"?  All I see is Home, Insert, Annotate...etc

How can I make a flat 2 foot x 6 inch profile with a curve on the outer edge to attach to a curved wall?  Should I be looking at wall sweeps, or is there an easier way?

Not sure what the image shows us.

A wall sweep as part of the wall definition, will follow the wall.  That requires a profile done in a profile family.  An applied wall sweep will also follow the wall.

An in-place sweep can also follow the wall.  You can sketch the profile for an in-place wall sweep from within the project.

 I created a profile, although there wasn't a imperial or metric rft, hit "save as" and "load into project".   Where is "MODELLING" - "HOST SWEEP" & "HALL SWEEP"?  Is it a pull down menu hidden somewhere?
