I have an exterior CMU wall with sweep at the wall base added in the wall type. I have edited the shape of the wall, creating

a "hole" to allow another wall and windows to show through, but the sweep extends through the inset wall.  I've joined the two walls

but can't seem to figure out how to get the sweep to cut at the inset wall.

 

thanks for any suggestions

I don't use embedded sweeps because of the problems they have.  Use an applied wall sweep instead.

Hi,

another way is to convert wall into parts, divide it and exclude the window area from the part.

Thanks...I was afriad there was no easy solution.....it looks like sweeps cannot be partially cut by windows or doors

no matter how you apply them.  They are either broken the full height of the sweep or not at all.

Create a face based family with a void that cut out the extrusion (within the face based family itself), use the family on the integrated sweep and you can cut out the sweep. In this case, you would want to make the face based family to be parametric so the you can use it for more than one location for different sizes.

Hi

You can divide your sweap to parts and then

delete the part you don't need
