I have a 520mm wall creating a corner with a 395mm wall, each wall has a different parapet sweep profile to suit the wall thickness. I cannot get these two sweep profiles to mitre correctly. The heights of the walls are equal, the materials for the flashing profiles are equal and the interior/exterior peaks of each profile are equal, still no luck. I have tried creating a custom parapet corner piece using a sweep blend, but have the issue of picking two paths for the sweep blend stopping me as well.

 

I am using Revit 2012.

There is no "correct" miter.  Two different profiles.  If you want this to be "correctly" modeled, do a special family for this condition and hold your sweeps back accordingly.

Gotcha, I was hoping there was a way to mitre a right angle corner that does not have a 45 degree flashing mitre because the parapets are varying thicknesses. I'd prefer to keep things parametric but I can live with the custom family. Thanks for the advice.
