I am new to Revit LT 2016. I have previously used the full versions of Revit, but now am on my own and can't afford my own full version of Revit. I amt trying to extrude a 2-D profile in a revit 2016 LT model, more specifically, I want to basically sweep a foundation wall top plate around the top of a foundation wall. In the full version of Revit, I did this by using Model In Place, then did Sweep>Pick Path>Pick 3D Edges, then hit Finish Path, then selected the profile, then hit Finish Sweep, and I was done. I know that Revit LT 2016 does not have Model In Place, but does allow you to create a profile family, which I did create a 2-D profile family for the wall top plate. But after creating the family and loading it into the project, I'm completely lost.

Is there no way to sweep a 2-D profile in a Revit 2016 LT model?

And if not, is there a work around in Revit LT?

I've checked Autodesk revit 2016 LT tutorials and have done a Google search, and have not found an answer.

The only work-around that I can think of is to use the Wall command, and create a wall structure that's the 11.25" width of a top plate, and make the wall 1 1/2" high, starting at the top of the foundation wall. This seems like a ridiculous way to do it, but I can't think of anything else.

Any suggestions?

Wish I could help, but havent used LT.  Honestly, I would have to ask you why you are modeling a PT plate in the first place?  If you need to get a set drawn, just use the 2d components in a drafting view and call it a day.  Ive done several residential sets now, and I never model top plates, it will just complicate your process when you have revisions.   

But that being said, if you have any model in place component options, maybe the extrusion functionality may be there in LT.

Dasherry719:  Thanks. What I was calling the top plate was actually the sill plate, but I ended up using the Structure>Beam command, but first created a new family for the sill plate using the Structural Framing>Beams and Braces template, and it was successful.

Drawing these elements in 3-D helps me understand how things go together when I get into more complicated details (i.e intersecting walls with different top of wall/sill plate heights), and sometimes having a 3-D section is important in getting an idea across to the client and co-workers.

 

Thanks.
