Creating Brick Sweeps in Walls

What is a brick sweep?

Eric, you KNOW I'm not the technical guy here, but in Revit, there is a tool called a "wall sweep" that allows you to add special features to walls, or other type of decorative horizontal or vertical projection to a wall in 3D or elevation view. Revit has a tutorial for on the use of the sweep tool, but the OP may be talking about something else?

Doing a web search for REVIT WALL SWEEPS, it looks as if something as simple as a chair rail is one example.

 

And paneled wainscot is another.

 

Methinks the OP needs to bone up on all things 2D and 3D in molding polylines.

 

i remember coming to Chief a newbie, my head full of other software's  terms, conventions, and methods.  It's like learning a new language.

Yes, I was using a term from Revit for a row of any material such as brick soldiers that would be inserted in a wall and project out of the wall.  It could also be a piece of trim on a soffit, etc.  I am a new user to Chief Architect and was wanting to add a row of brick soldiers in several locations in a wall, also a trim / cap on the bottom half of a pony wall.

Study Molding Poly lines, and Poly Line Solids for sure.  Check the Knowledge base, Training Videos and The User Manual (you can download a PDF of the manual)
