I have created a stacked wall that consist in wood siding on stone veener, now I want create the stone wall cap or watertable sill. How do I create this by using the 2D profile of the wall that I have in autoCAD, see screen shot. How do I give the wall cap the 3D dimension look in revit model. I tried wall sweep profile folders but there are not many options to choose from, how do I create my own?

Family/new /profile - in family editor - settings/family categories & parameters/profile usage/wall sweep

 

Load in then set in in your wall sweep command.

Create a new profile (File, New, Family, Profile) and draw the shape that you require.  Load it into the project and you will be able to use it as a wall profile.

Thank you guys for your help and quick response. I am new with RA2009 and at times I get frustrated but I am not giving up and hopefully I will be able to help others after I get more experience.
