RAC 2008...updating soon.

When I create a door frame for a non-masonry wall I just draw a profile for a sweep, select the path and there it is.  My door frame head will have a different profile than my jambs for a masonry door installation.  I create a solid extrusion for the jambs.  Next I create a solid extrusion for the head.  I do not want them to overlap.  Must I deal with this issue, or does someone know how I can cut the extrusions at an angle like they would actually be fabricated?

HAVE YOU TRIED TO JOIN GEOMETRY? THIS GETS CLOSE ENOUGH, AND IS HOPEFULLY ALONG THE LINES OF WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.

Alternatively if this isn't exact enough for you, you could force the mitre by using two 45° voids to cut each element end off.  Remember to use Cut and Don't Cut tools to tell revit what the void is cutting.

The join geometry works just fine.  Thanks!

Now how do I hide the door extrusion in plan view so only my swing is visible?

When you build families, you have the options of setting when 3d elements are visible. In the family editor, click on visibility on the options bar and set it according.

 

For many families, 2d geometry is all you may need in plans or elevations and turning off the 3d will speed everything up.
