In Revit 2008, a wall with several components. The final component is a sweep with several profiles used to simulate hardiplank siding. On walls with a gable roof pitch, the siding does not go all the way to the top of the roof line. The sweep component stops at the top of the wall (not to the roof line). Any suggestions on how to cover the entire height of the wall from the foundation to the roofline?

Haven’t played around with the exact situation but have had similar problems before. To overcome them I changed the height of my wall so it was higher than the roof and instead of joining the top of the wall to the roof I edited its profile to match the roof line. I not sure if this if the best way to solve it but it worked for me. HTH, Luke

This is how I resolved it. I changed the top constraint of the wall to a level beyond the roof line. Then I attached the wall to the roof line. This resolved the problem. So ultimately I did the same thing you mentioned. Of course I got warnings when I did it so I don't know how that is going to impact the other information in the wall. But for right know it gives me the graphics that I need. Thanks for the information.
