I have a precast concrete cavity wall that has a diagonal end. One of the 3 walls that make up this assembly has an integrated coping. The coping extends perpendicular to the wall face and either leaves a triangular piece of coping hanging over the end of the wall or a triangular part of the wall uncovered depending on which end you look at.

I was thinking I could use a void form and cut geometry to get a diagonal end to the coping where it extends past the wall and similarly for the one that is short, extend the wall and do the same thing. The problem is that I can not select the wall when creating a void form after I click cut geometry. I was under the impression walls can be cut using voids + cut geometry, but I cannot get it to work. Any ideas?

I realized I was using Mass Voids vs a Void as part of an in place wall family. http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Autodesk-Revit-Architecture/Can-t-cut-walls-with-Voids/td-p/3946981

 

Still doesn't work though. The coping wants to come off the wall perpendicular. Any ideas how I can angle the coping?

Copings are best done applied rather than intregal .

... that being said.  I don't understnd what you are saying based on your image.  Give us an image after you have done the in-place void and set it to cut your wall.  Then point out what you are talking about.

I'm not sure why what I wrote didn't post in that last message, but basically what I said was here is a better image of the condition I am talking about. I am not familiar with using applied coping. Can it be used on walls? Everything I'm finding says it is for beams and columns? I originally thought about using a sweep family, but using the integrated coping worked great until now.

If you had placed the coping seperate from the wall, you could have extended it beyond the wall and used an in-place void to cut it.  However, if the end of the coping will still be exposed without the face.  Why not create a simple In-place to fix all of this?

Ok, that worked out much better. Thanks for the help WWHub. I just went with an inplace family with a void and then made a quick end cap. Looks much better and acheives what I wanted.
