Hi Peter,
I am really enjoying your valuable videos. In this video you use 2D work to finalise the wall to underside of roof with a wall plate etc. Is there any way to model the actual detail in 3D with a 3D wall plate by stopping the top of the wall short by etc? As I understand it this 2D work only applies to this view or section, so if you cut a new section the detail will not exist. I would like to find of way of finishing the top of a wall so that when a new section was cut the basics of the eaves detail where there, as in a typical residential house and many commercial buildings where a cavity wall has a closer and wall plate? Are you going to cover the presentation of details in your series 'Revit Project' Thanks again for a brilliant set of tutorials. Regards, Mark

Hey Mark,

Thanks for the comments, i don't really go into it in more detail in the 'Revit Project' but wat you could do is make a new wall type for the wall plate, you would then stop the brick/external wall lower, then draw the new wall(wall Plate) on top of the brick wall, attach the wall plate wall to the roof to get the roof angle,

In terms of the cavity closer, if your intending a slate closure the best method would be a floor type as you can change the boundary quite easily to accomidate different wall thickness, if its a thermabate type closer a wall sweep might be more fitting but you would need to split the internal and external leafs of the external wall and leave the cavity free/void.

Hope this helps

Pete

Thanks Pete I will give this a try. Is this something you would do, or would you embellish the section with 2D line work with all the details as most of the books and guidance suggest?

I'd model them! as it means the 3d cut sections are correct,

Hi Pete,
That's the answer I wanted! Pleased to know I am on the right track.

Cheers,
