I have an arced ceiling in which I need to show reveals. (see attached screen shots)

The ceiling was created as an inplace ceiling family, extruded from the side view.

If I try to add model lines to the elevation or reflected ceiling plan view it does not allow me to pick the plane from those views. The only way I have been able to show reveals thus far is using drafting lines, which of course are only visible in that view.

I tried using a void sweep but I can only select the outside edges, I can not get it to move inboard. I tried doing a section cut at the exact area where I need a reveal to do a sweep, that didn't work either. It won't allow me to select that edge, only outside edges.

I looked through some of the suggestions for curved reveals for walls, and tried making a generic ceiling based family to no avail. Has anyone encountered this or have any ideas on how I might be able to do this?

TIA - Diane

OK - Another problem with this... I am using design options for a couple ceiling design options and it seems the details lines are not specific to the one design option, they are seen (and selectable) in both the main model and the other design option whether or not the 'detail line' option is set to primary.

Duh nevermind. I got'r dun using void extrusions as per my co-workers suggestion. I can't believe I didn't get that in the first place. I blame it on the cold meds.

Setup two views ... one with DO#1 set in VG and one with DO#2 set in VG then add annotations and detail lines as you want!
