I have sloping parapet walls which need stone cappings. I have a defined wall type with a coping sweep at the top, when I edit the walls' profile in elevation the coping sweep stays horizontal and does not follow the wall profile. Any ideas?????

Surely revit lets you sweep the top of sloping walls...what about projecting gables etc

Revit thinks the top of the wall is still at the higher level and applies the sweep at that level. I am trying to apply a chamfer to the top corners and am having the same problem.

It can be done with the in-place option but you can't add wall foundations to in-place families and we have those.

 Anyone know a solution?

Create the chamfers as in-place families in the wall category, either as a void to cut out the chamfer, or add the chamfered bit to th top of the wall.  It sounds as if you'r trying to do the whole wall as an in-place family if the foundations won't work with it.  You can also create inplace foundations if required using the foundation category.

ya i would edit the profile to how you want the wall, then do a inplace model and make a sweep using 3d edges.
