I've been trying to create a sweep using a C-Channel profile. When I go to load the profile I want (Imperial Library/Profiles/Structural/?) all that is available is "Slab Edge-Metal Angle", "Slab Edge- Thickened", and "Wide Flange- Profile". There is no C-Channel profiles to choose from? I tried using a C-Channel from the detailed component family, but since it's not techically in the "profile family"; it didn't work for the sweep.

 There's got to be an easier way than drawing a C-Channel profile from scratch...can anybody help...so frustrating?

 Thanks...

Hi, you have to know that a profile and a detail profile are different families: they're 2D drawings but their purposes are different. You need a C-Channel profile to do things like a sweep, extrusion, extrusion long a path...so look for your C profile in the profile directory, and if you re not able to find it or if doesn't fit your ideas, draw it yourself from a new family>profile;save it and then appload it into the project and change the properties of the sweep selecting the profile you drawn.

 

Hope this help you a little bit.

...thanks Paolo 

I just ended up drawing a profile like you described. I just find it odd that Revit has standard Wide Flange profile available in the profile library but not Channels, Angles, Tees, etc....are these profiles available for download somewhere?
