Tutorial - Sweeps and Swept Blend (Revit Clinic)

Great little video over at Revit Clinic that might help some of you out:

Sweeps and Swept Blends and Profiles along a Curved Rising Path

I’ve created a quick video tutorial [with sound] which I have included below:

You may have an issue when you have specific curves and rising paths for sweeps. Depending on the geometry of the slope, a profile may not sweep along and maintain the same angle from start to finish.

One approach which typically works well is to instead use a Swept Blend, and specify the same profile at both ends. This will additionally give you angle and offset dimensions at each end.

I hope this video helps!
