I am following the directions for editing the profile on a curved wall by making a void object, but I am having the same problems with the void object mass, that I can't make its bottom edge serpentine to cut my wall, it can only have an edge perpendicular to my floor.  What am I doing wrong?

I want to create a wall design like the one shown in the attached section on the curved wall shown on the left in the attached plan.  The wall design uses four separate finishes.  

 

Many thanks in advance for any advice you might be able to offer!

Thanks for the image. I don't know how one is supposed to guess what the user is doing without being able to see anything.

Edit profile is not going to work in this case, because, if I understand correctly, the wall is curve in plan. Edit Profile needs a flat plane to work. A better option is a model in place with solids and voids.

I am running into a problem with my void object, namely that I can't make it's bottom edge serpentine, I can only make it parallel to my floor.  Do you know how to make the type of void object I need?

That the best you can do.  Then if you need tose areas infilled, you will have to do another wall with a "negative" void of that one alf did.

Can someone *please* explain the steps of which @alphamedina sent me pictures?  Yes, this is exactly what I want to do but I have no idea how you are doing that from the images.  

Every time I make a void form it asks me repeatedly to pick a plane to work in, so I am doing something wrong there.  I am using the book "Introducing Revit Architecture 2010: BIM for Beginners" and it does not really cover creating reference planes.  

Also, the void form I do create has no depth to it like @alphamedina is showing to cut through a wall.  I don't know how to give it depth.  

Finally, the void form I create just rectinlear, which is no help.

Can someone describe the steps needed to do this?  I can follow along, I just can't figure it out on my own from pictures with no instructions.

By the way, my wall has windows, light fixtures, etc.  How do I get the void form to just cut through the finishes that I am adding as a 1/8" thick curved wall, but not cut through the windows, etc.?

best,

Phebe

Yes, you need a workplane to draw the curvy void from an elevation view. The workplane can be a grid line that you have previously created at the floor plan, paralel to the elevation from where you create the void. Then, from that elevation, start a void extrusion. Revit will ask for workplane, then select from the pull down the name of the grid line that you created. For detailed info about working with voids and solids and Cut Geometry, please refer to Wikihelp at:

Thank you, I am trying to do this.  Here is what I did:

1. Draw grid line in plan view joining the edges of my curve in a straight line (grid 1.6 in attached image)

2. Massing & Site -> In-Place Mass

3. Work Plane -> Set,  Name {Using Gridline I just made}

 Which takes me to a section view I made just in front of the gridline in which I do not see a void form, but I keep going

4. Draw -> Curve tool.  I try to draw on the wall to make my curvy void and it kicks up an error saying "None of the created elements are visible in Section: Section 22 View. You may want to check the active view, its Parameters, and Visibility settings."

Where have I gone wrong?

This is where my mass/void is being drawn, when I draw on the reference plane shown in that section view.  ???

You're getting the idea well, but don't use In-place mass, but Model in-place for the void. Maybe that is why you don't see the mass because of Visibility Settings. But to be able to cut the wall, you need a Model in-place void and Cut geometry.
