Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding host sweeps and reveals, part of Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture.
Sweeps and reveals offer way to modify the volume of your walls using an element…that extrudes along its length.…Sweeps add material to the wall and reveals cut away from the material of the wall.…In the previous movie, we looked at sweeps and reveals applied directly to the wall type.…In this movie, we are going to look at host sweeps and host reveals which you…place on the walls, wall by wall.…So you can choose which walls get them, and they don't apply across the entire type.…Both are similar. They both use profile families to determine the shape of…either the sweep or the reveal.…I am going to start there, by talking about where the profiles are in the project…and what we can do to load additional ones if we don't have the one we need.…
I am in a file called SAMOCA_V4, and I am going to zoom in here on this townhouse…with turret here at the corner.…Over here on the Project Browser, if we scroll down to the Families branch, right…here, and little further down to the Profile category, you can take a quick…
