    Cant Cut Sweep With Void

    Hi Guys / Gals,

    We have created a hosted profile to be used as a flkoor thickening to our slab under internal walls. W have used this profile in a wall sweep. Pick the wall line and the slab thickening is in place. No problem.
    What we ahve found is that we need to cut the thickenings at an angle where the meet a basement wall. We tried to use a void to cut the sweep but the followng error came up.
    Selection cannot be copied.
    Element cannot be copied because it would lose its references.

    why is it trying to be copied? and what references will it lose?
    Any ideas on how we can cut these wall sweeps at angles?

    A wall sweep can be cut with a model in-place void. Cut Geometry should be used before ending the model in-place.

    Question

    I'm having the same problem here. Trying to make a cut on wall sweep, I'm doing the cut inside the Edit in Place and everything works fine, when I click "Finish Model" is giving me the same error and does not allow me to continue. Any suggestions?

    Try moving the extents of the void beyond the edge of the sweep, use cut before finishing MIP.
