I have searched high & low for assistance on this but have failed to come close - I have an itching it might be reference plane related, but I have yet to delve into that realm so will still need help with that if such is the case.

In short (he says) I have our parapet flashing profile drawn, loaded into a sweep and doing exactly what I want it to - at least on standard walls - but when I am unable to attach the sweep to walls that have editted profiles - which is quite frustrating given how common an architectural feature sloped parapets are here in the UK.

I have modelled a rough & ready sketchup setch to illustrate what I am wanting to do - the blue line indicating the path I would like the "sweep" to follow.

If at all possible, there is a way to also wrap said sweep [i]down[/i] the vertical line of the wall edge as well, then I would greatly welcome advice/links/etc.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

[B]EDIT[/B] Sorry, the attachment didn't work in the first instance - and I've been hunting high and low for the post-edit button!!!?

You can create the sweeps separately for this.  Pick on the wall lines to define the path.

Wow! I have to say, as far as replies go, that's got to be one of the most selfless efforts I've experienced on [i]any[/i] forum - thank you!

Watched your video today with a co-Reviteer, and duly tested & flexed the method - it works a dream!

 ....and now we're so keen on the method we're going to go the next stage and model the end caps to our flashing.
