    Question Miter panel ends

    What's the best way to miter the ends of my precast panels at the corners? Right now I just use a void and subtract it out in the project.

    Thank you.

    Use a wall reveal; 1st--create a Profile family with a 45 degree wedge shape. Load it into your project, and select it in the Reveal Properties.
    Then use the Reveal tool and specify "vertical" orientation. (assuming the mitered ends are in "plan". )

    My panels are made with line based generic models. Don't reveals have to be used on walls?

    OK--you did not mention that in your original post. Yes--you could use line-based voids and cut geometry.

    Or--you might consider using a curtainwall, and creating custom curtain panels which have the voids/reveals cut out and substitute them for the standard curtain panels.

    Heck--you can even replace the standard curtain panel with a Wall, which could then have Reveals in it! ( never actually tried this one!)
