Hey folks:

i've got a wood base wall sweep that is a part of a building renovation, so there are a mix of existing walls that are partially demo'ed and new walls. it seems as though the wall sweeps get a little confused and are showing up on top of the doors in the elevation. has any one else had the same problem and, if so, how did you rectify it? sorry if this subject has been discussed before, i did a search and could not find anything.

Are the sweeps part of a demo'd wall or the new wall?  If you have two walls in the same place, why do you have both on in the view.  I would think you would control this using phases.

Hi, "the wall sweeps get a little confused and are showing up on top of the doors in the elevation" in TOP or in BOTTOM? because in the image i think the problem is in bottom of the wall... but, in this case, when you create a new Wall and you go in the properties-Edit/new, in profile you are abble to "insert" a sweep or a reveal in that wall, so, you don't need to "Create-in-place" any sweep like this...

i meant to say that they are in front of the doors in elevation. i can see how that would be confusing. would your solution work in a multi phase project? there are some instances where i have the same wall and dont want such an intricate wood base. perhaps the solutinon to that particular problem would be to copy the wall type and edit the profile for each wall. though that creates a new set of headaches, such as having to go back and change the wall type for each different instance.

 

thanks to both of you for your help!

I prefer to create my trim as in place families. That way they don't rely on the phasing of the wall, you can cut them at openings with voids, and you can lock them to the walls if things might move around.

Just an alternative. Take it or leave it.

WWHub:

the sweeps are part of an existing wall that has old doors demo'd and then infilled. then there are some new doors installed. could it be that because there is a new door installed near the old door?

Again I ask - Why are you showing everthing in an elevation?  You should be using phase to control visibility.

i am using phasing. what is shown in the elevation are the walls that will remain and the new construction. i have the phasing set to "new construction and the phase filter on "show complete" .
