Rev 2009- we are starting our first project complete in Rev 2009. Our walls assemblies are created however when I cut a section through the masonry assembly the profile for masonry exterior face is a straight line.

I would like to see an accurate profile for the exterior face of split face arch block ie bumps. I was thinking of creating a family for this profile. Any ideas?

I did search the forum but no luck. I have added my CAD section of what I wish to create in revit

Typically, we use the straight line in coarse views.  In Detail views, we add repeading split-face block detail.

Thank you for this. Can you explain what you meant by repeating the split face block detail. How do I see further definition in the block face rather than straight lines on the exterior in my detail.

Every detail family can be set up as a repeating detail.  Simply create a split-face block detail family then set it up as a repeating detail type in your project.

 

Search and read Repeating Detail in your HELP.  That will tell you how to do this.

what you are attempting to do is usually only done by detailing over the section cut with 2d details. the block itself is not actually modelled, thus the straight line when you cut the section. but if you want to you could actually modell the block and all the other conponents to your pleasure.
