The first option is to add it to the wall type. This makes it automatic and appear everywhere. First, I will show how to set it up and then point out a few potential problems with this option. Of course we will check out the results in Enscape:)

For some context, lets say we want to add baseboard to this home office as shown in the image below.
Here are the basic steps to add a baseboard to a wall (see next image):
- Select the wall
- Edit Type (and Edit Structure)
- Show Preview and switch to Section view
- Click the Sweeps button
- Add a sweep
Each sweep has several options which can be set. Profile and material are important first steps. Revit comes with several profiles or it is easy to make your own.
When you click OK or Apply the resultant sweep can be seen in the preview as shown here.
Now the baseboard appears in the model everywhere this wall is located.
Baseboard is not typically modeled in my experience. But, it looks wonderful in Enscape as seen in the next two images! Everything here uses the new Revit 2019 advanced materials.
Now the challenges.
We only defined this sweep on one side of the wall. We could easily add another one on the other side of the wall. But if there are cases where one side has a different trim that would get complicated, as multiple wall types would be needed.
Also, this only works when the bottom of the wall aligns with the floor. So this technique would not work for the two exterior walls which actually each have different conditions in this regard.
