Using Revit 2010, how do you do a 2" chamfer on the vertical edge of a wall? How do you raise the chamfer up 24" from the slab and stop 24" down from the plate? Can you build a vertical void sweep? How do you do that? I'm very new to Revit and I'm still learning all of the terminology. Thanks.

I would do a single in-place family extrusion that creates this void at each corner.  Family type is void and it will only cut walls.  Columns are another issue.

any chance you post a sketch of what you wish to achive, but i think a vertical combound wall will do what you are after. select your wall go to its properties, select edit the structure of the wall, open the preview, change the previeew to section view, then all the items at the bottom of the wall assebly become active.

 or use the wall reval tool, on the wall drop down list.

Thank for the recommendations. I've attached a sketch of what I'm trying to achieve.

Would you build the in-place family extrusion as a parametric element so that it can be adjusted for varying wall heights?

Can you use a reveal for just part of the vertical edge? How would you handle the 45 degree cuts at the end of the chamfers?

In place families are meant to be used only once so no parametrics.  I don't know how many locations you have for these or how often their locations might change.  If I was fairly sure the plan is set and the extrusion is a fixed height then I would do an in place. 

 

Your sketch has tapered ends though so I might look at a void hosted family.  Tricky to place at the corners but easier to adjust location and add/subtract locations.  That could be parametric.
