Parts - Division Profiles

Most users know about Revit's Parts functionality, even though they might not have used it before. If you do however need more information about the Parts function, you can refer to this blog entry. But did you know that you can also add pre-created division profiles to each divided part? When looking at the OOTB family templates, we will notice a dedicated Family Template called Division Profile. 

The default library will also contain some profiles, typically located in the Profiles folder, Division Profiles sub folder. If you have the South African library installed, herewith the full path: C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RVT 2015\Libraries\South Africa\Profiles\Division Profiles 

We will use the example of adding division profiles to a wall from which parts have already been created. 

The wall face has been divided into parts. The divided part will be divided again, in other words, broken into smaller portions.

In the instance properties of the Divide Parts sketch, a Division Profile property will be visible, a Gap distance between the division, as well as an Edge Match property for the division.

For the purpose of this entry, we will look at the differences between the Angled Step Division Profile, and the Notch Division Profile, complete with all the Edge Match options we have for those Division Profiles.
