    Profile division for multilayered wall.

    I have a sandwich precast wall in revit modeled as simple wall (120 concrete + 100 insulation + 75 concrete). I split it in to parts, and was able to create a joint with 'divide parts' option applied to each layer. Now I would like to apply fancy division profile to this joint, but revit is not letting me to mirror the joint. I keep getting an error:

    'Profile family cannot be applied to the hosts as the edge match condition is not compatible with the profile on host widths. Division is performed without edge profiles.'

    The family I created has width set to 75mm and the width of the part is 75mm as well. Snip from the family of division profile attached.

    Could you help please?

    Each layer as a separate wall.

    OH, so I can't do it with parts. Quite disappointing!

    Thanks for letting me know. I'll have to remodel it in to separate walls...

    TBH I don't know if it can be done with parts, I just don't use them. Separate walls just work far better for me.

    I played with it a little bit more and even if you model it separately, you still need to create an assembly and parts in order to apply a division profile. I now made it work. The sketched profile shape was nto wide enough, which doesn't make sense. Apparently it needs to be bigger than the wall width we want to apply it to.

    Very common in Revit. Whenever you cut something with the same dimensions as the object you are cutting with there might be very tiny pieces of geometry left that Revit cannot model.

    Best practice is indeed to try to make you cutting element a big bigger whenever possible.
