Highlight the sweep and select the blue grip point and move it away from the sweep.

As far as I know that is the only way. Sweeps automatically cut at the opening and any geometry extending past the opening will not be automatically cut. I think that is why there is the ability to modify the end of the sweeps after an opening is cut.

There are no blue grips at the doors only at the ends of the walls.  Sad

Which version are you using. I am on Revit Building 9.1. When I select a wall with sweeps applied (either integrated into the wall family or hosted seperatly) I get the blue grips at the openings as well as the ends of the wall.

I'm using Revit Architecture 2008.  I do recall seeing them there once, but that may have been when i was using 9.1

That must be it. I haven't worked in 2008 yet so I am not sure.

In your sweep element properties uncheck the "cut by inserts" type parameter then your blue grips will reappear at evey door insert.

 

Hope this helps

Hey, why do my sweeps cut right at the window trim and not the door trim?

That's because of how the opening sketch in your window family lock into the outer frame ref plane. You can also do the same to your door family to lock the sketch at the outer frame of your door so that you don't have to readjust the wall sweep end at every insert. Wall sweep will stop at the end of the opening at every insert. 

 

Hope this helps.

Another level of Revit skillsets include placing doors and windows without trims.. and then adding the reveals and trims as separate casework.  this works well only after you've read all the forums on the subject, and figured it out yourself.  now i find installing trim to be a pleasure.  I create my own profiles from my selections for each project. the profiles come from catalogs and downloadable dwf/pdf docs.  then I place all trim types quickly via creating Solid Sweeps with either profiles or sketches.  The sweeps will snap and lock to the doors and windows in sketch path mode.  I can then control the profiles to get real results and to apply textures and colors that are lifelike to the project.  lastly... I schedule all my casework, inside and out with project parameters and family parameter keying on the length, profile, type, finish and I use the Uniformat code to filter my schedule to just show casework trims. 

I ran into my biggest problems in the old days when I used out of the box doors and windows that had trim because I frequently schedule these items and create Legends for them.. They would appear with the trim which was confusing to the vendor when I sent them a sheet with the info on it.  Now I have full control of the trims, doors, windows, schedules, takeoffs, materials and renderings.
