Hi there.

 

I'm currently using Revit 2014 on Windows 7.

 

This is not so much a question as it is just wondering how other users are using their 3D.

 

We are looking at fine tuning our documents and utilising 3D more, where we can, to reduce time in drawing elements in 2D all the time.  Just wondering what the best way is to create 3D cornice & skirting.

 

At the moment we have been drawing detail lines in our sections and internal elevations to indicate both the cornice & skirting. The idea of using the 3D would be so that when we go to create these views (especially with our bigger projects) that all this information is already shown in the view and we don't need to manually draw it in.

 

I've already researched creating components and hosting them to the wall face, ceiling, etc but just wondering if there are any better ways out there which I haven't thought of or come across.

 

Any advice, ideas, etc would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

I’m not sure what ‘skirting’ you’re referring to, but wall cornice you can create with a wall sweep. Use profile family to create a cornice shape (cross section) and apply to wall with Wall: Sweep tool, or apply to a wall type as an integral part of the wall.

By skirting I mean the skirting boards which sit at the bottom of the wall to hide the join between the floor covering and wall sheeting.

 

And thanks for those ideas I'm about to research into them more so we can apply them to our documents.

we usually call skirting boards "base boards"
