The only countertop available in the library is the item: CounterTop 24" depth, but it will not fit the Base Cabinet's angled shape. The countertop from the Revit library only fits rectangular spacs. What am I supposed to do here? Thanks, to whomever replies! Post edited on 2006-03-04 03:08:59

You could make a new casework family or make an in-place counter by going to Create>pick casework>name>solid extrusion. Use the level as work plan and make counter top. Make sure you set the properties to match the existing top. Have a look in the tutorials on extrusions. i have just completed a shop fitout mainly using in-place families. Hope this helps

i edited the original counter top which is just a L-shape and drew the required angle in. all i did was measure the angle tht needed covering and drew it in, but i then offset this line by say 20mm which is the overhang

After dickin' with a number of custom counter tops and bar tops I'm ready to try Mr. Spot's suggestion. I believe it was Spot that said to make countertops thin floors. The floor tool and editor are easy to use, offset from the Level in question, make 1 1/2" thick, follow/offset from your cabinetry, select a material, and you're on to the next issue.

That is a pretty creative solution.

Using that meathod, or using actual counter top families what is the best way to add sinks to counters. Is here a way to create a sink famile that autonaticly cut the counter top it is placed into?
