And what was the problem? Can you explain what happened? what are you trying to do and how you solved?

I'd like to carry this thread forward for my own issue:

 I have a Canopy that has a sweeeping curve in both the lateral and verticle directions simultaneously.

We are constructing the canopy with Metal ACM panels, and need to mass the canopy so that we can ap the Panels to the face of three faces of the canopy low verticle fascia, sloping Soffit (up and away from low Fascia) and then a curved high fascia to straight verticle.

This canopy profile runs along a faceted curtain wall. with approximately 2 metre intervals.  Ideally these need to run consecutively with all joints verticlly true, and horizontally aligned to the centre-line of verticle Mulllion.   Initially the goal was to create Mass Faces and apply an adaptive panel to it, to run a schedule of each individual panel geometry...   I am still trying to get the massing done.

I have tried various methods of creating the mass, and also a few lame exercises in adaptive component as a profile...    But I am a litle lost at this point and would appreciate some sage input.

I will try and attach an example or two of what I have been doing, and welcome the feedback input emmensely!

The Sweep Profile seems to be a good option, but I can not rotate it to the verticle rising slope of the Head Mullion.

Thanks, Michael

If you are using 2010 or 2011 you must use the "Conceptual Mass" family then import to project and then apply roof and wall by face like you can see in the images attached...

Thanks Typhoon,

 I did achieve this with the examples provided after about a million "self-intersecting errors"!

WHat I am now trying to do is Sweep/Blend the profile along a segmented (facade) or polyline (curtain) wall as illustrated.  Is there an easy wat to have the 'edges of 'swept'  profiles connect intelligently ie. recognizing that they intersect and clean themselves up so the there are no gaps for greater than 180 angle connections, or no overlaps for less than 180 angled segments?

Also, I am envisioning a challenge to ensure that the connections remain 'vertical', and do NOT run perpend. to the wall segment/joint. Is that a correct assumption?

Thanks, in advance for your thoughts and contributions....

I am relatively new to the 'Revit' modeling environment so if I could request your indulgence in being "as specific to step-by-step as your time would allow" - That would be awesome!   G'night.

Michael

If you look my images the profile still VERTICAL to the floor and not perpendicular, just rotate the Profiles....

     "you are using 2010 or 2011 you must use the "Conceptual Mass" family then import to project and then apply roof and wall by face like you can see in the images attached...   "

 thanks, 

When I created my Profile along the spline I was unable to et the front edge of the curved portion for the profile to be a smooth curve, it came off faceted.   Can you advise what I may have been doing wrong in preparing the profile?

Thanks, Michael

Here you have my family so you can check but i can't tell you why "....profile to be a smooth curve, it came off faceted." until i see some images what are you talking or the family it self...
