Hi,

I am using Revit Architecture 2009. I was wondering if there is a way to model 1" panels with 1/4" reveals onto a curved wall.

The way I have it set up, the curved wall has sweeps to show horizontal bands of Marlite panels. When I try to model vertical reveals, they are placed in the wall substrate beyond, not the sweep material. It does not want to let me pick the curved surface of the sweep (or the wall) as a work plane to model a void mass in there.

I can't figure out another way to do this, anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi, can you put some screenshot to figure what really are you trying to do?? But to cut the wall sweeps i think i create a "Generic model face based" with a void...

Yes, here is a screen shot. I managed to put some vertical reveals in there using solid, instead of void, extrusions in the wall sweeps, and and assigning black for the material.

Since the solids are just attached to the work plane, and aren't dependant on "cutting out" a geometry, it worked. It renders OK, but sort of avoids the problem. Still not sure if doing voids is possible.

I was able to do it by creating the reveal as a trapazoid with the smallest side in the wall and the largest side about an 1" 'outside' of the wall.  That was for a convex curve.  I imaging you would have to make the smallest side of the trapazoid on the outside for a concave wall (but I haven't tried that yet).
