    Default Multi-plane sweeps without helper objects

    You can sweep out of a single plane with Revit, but you have to model "helper objects" and use Pick Path to do it. It would be nice to be able to just draw in the path rather than having to model these helper objects in. (And no, I don't have a suggestion on how the tool would work!)

    I place these helper in a subcategory so they can be turned off, and/or an off-by-default workset.

    Default Re: Multi-plane sweeps without helper objects

    Indeed. I've been doing a bunch of complex railing that can't easily be done with the railing tool. I'd just be happy if I could switch planes in the middle of drawing my path.

    The Viz sweep tools should be the model fro Revit sweeps.
