Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding sweeps and reveals, part of Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture.
In the previous movie we have looked at vertically compound walls as a way of…adding banding along the length of a wall type.…In this movie, we're going to look at sweeps and reveals.…Sweeps and reveals offer another way to modify the wall along its length with…banding, and they can either be additive or subtractive.…So we use a sweep to add material to the wall; we use a reveal to actually cut…material away from the wall.…Both of these use a profile family.…A profile family is just simply a 2D shape saved in a family and loaded in, and…then you take that profile and you sweep or create a reveal along the length of the wall.…
To do this we, are going to work in SAMOCA_V4 again. And I have four walls along…the front of the building here: this one right here, this one here, and these two…here and here. And I've previously gone in and created a wall type for those…called Entrance Banded.…The banding is not there yet, and that's what we're going look at right now.…So, I'm going to zoom in just a touch more. And I only have to select one of…
