    sweeps and stacked walls getting cut off where wall has been trimmed

    I have a stacked wall family that consists of the main exterior wall, and on top of that is a copy of that same wall with a parapet added on. This upper parapet wall also has a wall sweep making up the cap.

    This has worked great in most locations, however we have some stepped parapet conditions where it steps down as the roof slopes down. To create the stepped condition we have trimmed the wall in elevation to follow the path we need. The issue is that revit doesnt see trimmed "top of wall" as the top, it sees it as we just cut off the top, so the parapet and sweep are cut off.


    Parapet Stacked Wall - mouse is hovered over it to highlight the wall. The cap is a wall sweep.

    Is there a way to get revit to recognize this 'new' top of wall as the top, with my stacked wall and sweep?

    You could do a regular wall sweep with your coping profile and place them on top of the lower step locations. Otherwise you would need to split the wall into 3 separate pieces, with no edit profile sketch, to make it put the sweep at the top of each stepped level.

    Just don't use edit profile, for it. Split the wall and change the heights for the different segments. I wouldn't do that with edit profile, regardless.
