Is it possible to create a vertical chamfer on the exterior corners as part of the wall type of a precast wall panel?  I've been able to put horizontal chamfers on the top of the wall, and make that part of the wall type, but I can't figure out how to do vertical chamfers. When i go to wall type properties, and to edit assembly, the sweeps & reveals buttons are only available when in 'section' preview. But the section preview only allows horizontal sweep or reveals.

 

I've done an in-place model of a wall panel to create the chamfer in plan view, but i've got serveral different wall panel lengths, so i'd like to make the chamfer part of the wall type so that i don't have to do a different in-place model for each wall panel.

 

Thanks

Vertical reveals are placed in elevation views.

If you are using a curtain wall, just create a custom wall panel family with the chamfer built in.

WWhub, I've placed vertical chamfer in the elevation view, and that works fine, but that requires that all wall panels be placed first, and then you go back and apply a reveal to each end of each wall panel. Plus if you do it that way, if the wall end moves, then the vertical reveal is lost, and you have to place it again.

What I was wondering, is if there is a way to apply the vertical reveal as part of the wall type, so that the chamfers would be there when the wall is modeled. Similar to the way you can place a horizontal reveal to the base or top of a wall, in the wall's type properties, in the structure assembly.

You can not do it as a wall type.  Some people use curtain walls but I don't like that.  The vertical reveals can be dimensioned to a wall end or col line, locked then the dimension deleted.

Thanks WWhub!

I think that locking the dimension and then deleting it will work for me. It would be easier if it could be done as a wall type, but I'll just have to remember to get my first wall fixed the way i want it, and then I can copy it around my building, and than stretch the length of the wall panel as needed.
