How to access Sweep Tool in Revit 2011.

I understand that there should be a Sweep tool Under Modify panel.

It does not show up on my User Interface.

Is this an error in the program or am I missing something else?

How to create a Sweep without this tool?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A wall sweep?  Or a family modeled in place? wall sweeps are a dropdown under the wall button. 

 

other sweeps can be made via "Component --> model in place"  under the home tab.  And once you start modeling a component, you have extrusions, sweeps, blends, etc at your disposal.

The ribbon in Revit and all Autodesk software now, is contextual.  That is, it will change depending on what you are doing.

 

Creating Solid and Void Form Sweeps are available in the Family environment.  Either component in-place in a project or in a separate family file.

 

You also have host sweeps for roofs, walls and floors as has previously been mentioned.  These rely on profile families being loaded into the project already.

 

HTH.

The issue which I am having problem with is that :

When Component and Model in Place are selected

the In-Place icon appears but no other leads show up

such as extrusions, sweeps, blends etc...

Now in that menu (Ribbon) select the "Home" tab and you will see the Sweep, blend and so on...

Many thanks for your help.

Selecting the Home tab twice.

That's what I was failed to see.
