I would like to know how you arc the top of an arc wall. I know how to use the profile button to place an arc on the top of a straight wall but that option is not availabe on an arc wall. I would like to use this on curved parapet walls for a condo. Can anyone help? Mark

It is interesting that once you created a curved or arc wall in plan, it does not allowed you to edit the profile of the wall anymore as I tried in Revit 6.1. Not too sure about Revit 7. It only allows you to create rectangular openings The easier way to get around this is by creating another curve roof above your curved/ arc wall and attach the curved wall to the roof, than turn off the roof visibility or hide the roof using the select and hide icon. But I think this should not be the permenant solutions for this as turning off the roof visibility will subsequently turn your other roofs as well. Create in-place family should be a better solution by the steps a slightly more. Basically, you have to create a extrude curve/ arc wall and create a curve/ arc void to have the effects done. I hope I got your question right, Attached the family created.

I sort of agree with Ale02, But i wouln't create the curved wall as an inplace family. Basically all you need to do is. Create an in-place family (wall Category) use a void to cut the section of the wall you wish to remove to get the curve. Then before finishing the family use the Cut Geometry tool on the void and select the wall you wish it to cut. Now finish the family and it shold cut as required.

I was having this same problem, and I discovered that a reference plane should be used. I created a reference plane above the arc wall at the desired angle, and attached the top of the wall to the reference plane. It is the same concept as the above mentioned "attaching to a roof", but the reference plane is that tool created for this use. Thank you for mentioning the attach to roof idea, it led me to the reference plan solution.

I'm going to have to go with the massing option. I used the reference plane idea, but the top of the wall then cut sharply into a different angle, as well as sloping the entire wall. Unless anybody has other solutions?
