- In this movie, we'll look at Sweeps and Reveals.…A Sweep is material that you add to a Wall…and a Reveal is material that you carve away.…Both use a two dimensional Family Type called a Profile…which determines the shape of the material…that you're either adding or removing.…And then that material is pushed along the length…and or the height of the Wall.…We can apply Sweeps and Reveals at either the Type level…in which case they would apply to…all instances of that Wall type.…Or we can actually apply them wall by wall…by selecting the individual Walls…that we want to add them to.…So I'm in a file here called Sweeps and Reveals…and let's go ahead and start by doing a Type based Sweep…that we're going to apply to this exterior wall type.…
So I'm going to select one of the instances…of this exterior wall.…And you could see that it's the Basic Wall,…Exterior Brick on Metal Stud type.…And I'm going to choose the Edit Type dialog.…Next I'm going to go to the Edit Structure,…like we have done before.…And what I want to get to is this Sweeps button down here,…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
