Version Revit 2008 

I read through the forum and made the curved & sloped wall with the in-place familiy "blend tool".  But i can't figure out how to cut the top of the wall slanted.  I also need to angled the top of a curve vertical wall as well, and no clue how to do that...  Can anyone give me some pointers?

You probably need to create a void extrusion in the same in house family as your wall, then by moving the void up and down will control the top of your wall, you need to make sure the void is attached(subtracted) to the solid.

Thanks!  finally worked it out.

One more question though.  With the in-place family, how do you eidt the material?  I want to do precast panel and be able to control the control joints.

When you create a in-place family you can give a Name(s) for material(s) to your object(s), then when you are in model you can go to properties and change them...

Thanks, i manage to add material into my in-place family property. 

is there a easy way of doing the precase panel grids?  Now I Feel like I should have done it as a curtain system... the pick face seems to only work on mass? 

Also, all my commands are grayed out if i am in a 3D view.. Is that normal?  That doesn't seem to be the case when I see some of the tutorial.

I am very sorry.  I just realize i can't edit in perspective view but i can in axonometric. 

But this I really need help with:

I have my curve wall with slanted top, and I make a curtain system.  Is there anyway to manually draw the curtain grid?  I don't want it to subdivide the height.  I was the horizontal grid to be leveled.  Please see attached model.

Thanks

Stang,

I had a similar situation. Can you show a bit more on how you make your curve sloped wall with slanted top.  (step by step process would be great!)

Thanks.

akome555,

1) under the Modelling menu, go to create, select the family category you want it to belong to, and create a name (this will show up in your project directory>families.

2) On the left tool bar, click Solid Form> Solid Blend

3) sketch the bottom of the curve wall.

4) on the left tool bar, click "Edit Top".  Then sketch the top of the curve wall.   If you want it to be a uniform slant, you can trace the bottom then offset it.  Remeber to give it the right "Depth" (height) (on the top bar)

5)click"Finish sketch".  the bottom and the top will be parallel, if you want to create a slant for the top edge of the wall.  Crete a Void Form that cuts the curve wall.  You can also create openings in the wall with the void form.

 Good Luck!

Stang,

 

I think I cannot also mannually create the grid. It seems to be, once you place a "horizontal grid" that revit needs to automatically create where it will be a "planar" curtain system that is real in the construction world. The model you submit seems to be the correct one according to the slope and angle of the curtain wall.

Hi Susan..I think that a easiest way to make a slanted top of a wall is by make it with sweep (in revit architecture 200Shadey or sweep and sweep blend in revit architecture 2009, so You can easy to make that wall a profile you want..
