look, I want to make a massing according to my cad footprint, but when I finished the mass, it can not be a solid body, just mesh, the cubic which I draw on the right side of my massing is ok, it is a solid. Did I do somthing wrong when I make the massing or the frofile of my massing is to comlicated so as to it can not become a solid body?

picture2 is my sketchup model about the building.

How do you create that "Mass"? with "Massing and Site" or with a "Create In-Place" in the category Mass?

Is that a "Closed Loop" like a "polyline" in CAD?

May I ask you why are you creating that with mass when you can draw Walls directly on your project?

May I ask you why are you creating that with mass when you can draw Walls directly on your project?

I create the mass first I click  Massing and Site and then I click In-place mass then there jump out an dialog,  I give the give name mass1,  then I use pick lines, after I picked all the profile line, I use trim tool to make sure they can be a closed line. Then I selected the colosed poly line, click creat form tab, pick the form tab ,then it become the massing. but the massing is not a solid body , only a mesh body. And I make an other try with the same method, but just to draw a rectangle and then click creat form tab, pick the form tab, it became an solid cubic. So I don't the what's the difference bettween the two massing. Only one difference I found is that one is simple rectangle and the other is complex polyline in their footprint.

The reason why I made massing istead of drawing walls directly is that I want to fist make a massing of the building, because the elevation of my building is little complicated, so I think it's better to make a massing frame, then I can use the command model by faces to generate the walls. I use this mothed is also because the tutorial files I leart tells me to generate a building's wall from pick the faces of a already made massing. The turtorial fiel I have aslo attached to my thread. The method is taught on page 107 of the pdf. I don't know if it is a good method to make a building.

This is my first revit products, and I want to finish my design with revit.

Your process is correct and if you need first to create a "Mass Studie" you are right to do that, you said: "...then I use pick lines, after I picked all the profile line, I use trim tool to make sure they can be a closed line." - If you used the "Trim" tool on all lines should work.... Wierd...

Can you please upload here that "Mass/Mesh" so we can take a look?

And how you solved the problem? It wasn't a "Closed Polyline" right?

I don't know how I solved the problem, because I use the same method to draw a massing, But I think the only one difference is that previous footprint line is not closed well, I can't pick all the segment of the line by one click, the latter footprint line can be picked all the segement by one click. I think may be that's the problem.
