Quick trick, How you can create boundary for front view of wall when you have Sweep on that ?

Did you ever use Wall Sweep for your Wall in the Project modeling ? You can add many detail into the wall model but you have many limitation with this tool.

For example if you use Wall sweep in the edit structure dialogue then you are able to add many wall sweep simultaneously into the wall and all of them creating automatically , but the problem where coming you want to create schedule from this wall sweep , you are not able to  create schedule for this type of wall sweeps.

But if you use Wall Sweep Command every thing is different , you can create schedule for this but you can’t create many of them simultaneously in the project area.

 

Other problem for both of them is about the font view of wall , in the normal wall which has not any wall sweep you can use Edit Profile Command for change the boundary of the front view for your wall , but you can’t use Edit Profile Command for this type of Wall !!?! maybe you think you can do this , pay attention what is the result for the final model of wall?? could you cut your sweeps as you want ?? with the shape you want ??

 

In the Next I will explain how you can solve this problem.

Let’s start, I prefer to you create four wall and use Edit Profile command for them like the below picture as you see every thing is ok.

sweep 1

Then make a copy from them and change the type for this walls to another type which has wall sweep. You can see what happening when you have wall sweep into the wall . every thing is for cutting wall sweep are wrong.

Sweep 2

If you select a Wall for example like the below picture and go to the Edit Profile you can see the boundary line.

Sweep 5

And when you finish Edit profile command if you select the wall and pay attention to the Wall sweep point you can understand what happened . In fact the wall sweeps are finishing in the intersection point between the boundary line and guide line of wall sweeps.

Sweep 6

Go to the Edit structure dialogue and check the wall sweep and option for them like the below pictures.

Sweep 3

 

Sweep 4

Now we can fix this problem very simple. go to the Model in Place area

Sweep 7

 

You can choose Generic Model

 

Sweep 8

Run Opening Command ( 1 ) click on the ok button for choosing host of opening ( 2 ) and select which wall you want ( 3 )

Sweep 9

Create your own area s you want and then press Finish icon.

Sweep 10

Select Finish family too.

Sweep 11

you can watch what is the result for your wall, every thing is ok.

Sweep 12

You can do this as the same way for other walls.

Sweep 13

 

In fact you can add some parameter for which wall has wall sweep in the Edit dialogue of wall and get the correct result for scheduling sweep material.

Good Luck
