(Revit Architecture 2010)

We have tack boards that run continuously in corridors at a school we are working on; they are modeled as wall sweeps.  In our interior elevations, we would like to show various breaks both horizontaly and verticaly where the material of the tack boards can change color/material.  Originally I was planning to use the split face tool and the paint bucket along with our material tags to label each area, but the split face tool does not seem to want to cut the wall sweep as I would expect it to do.  It appears I can split the face verticaly (into two separate side-by-side pieces), but not horizontaly.  The design we are working with requires splits to happen in both directions, so I am at a bit of a loss trying to think of a better way to do this than just giving up and using filled regions and dummy material tags...

Has anyone encountered this before, or can you suggest a work around?  I suppose we could try using multiple wall sweeps and then applying materials individually, but this doesn't seem ideal.  Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

can you post a part of the wall with the sweep. I think you are on the right track but I can look at it to see.

Here is a simplified file that shows what I am working with. When you open it, check out the Interior Elevation view for a few text notes and details lines explaining everything.  Thanks for taking a look!

Rather than sweeps, have you tried using a curtain wall?  Create a new curtain wall type called tackboards, create new curtain panels with the thickness of the tackboard material and assign a material to each panel type.  Cerate a curtain wall in front of the base corridor wall set its height and width.  You can align and lock to the corridor wall so it will move if the corridor wall changes.  Use the curtan grid tools to divide the tackboard wall as required.  Select individual panels and change them to the ones you want for material/color etc.

You can even schedule the "curtain" panels by assigning a filter to a schedule that filters based on a field you've used in the curtain panel (tackboard).  You can also tag the curtain panels in elevation and assign via the material editor a surface patter to each color and type.

See attached file for an example.

Thank you for the suggestion, Tom, I like the idea.  I'm guessing we will implement that technique on future jobs since we are are currently on a tight deadline for the job at hand.  I think at this point, several filled regions and text notes have already been placed... sigh.

Anyway, it will be easier and smoother next time around, right? Thanks again for your help.
