I am trying to make a window family that represents a commercial aluminium section (Capral 400 series for those in Oz). The way this window system works is that they have a common nom 50x100mm section for the mullions which can have a glazing channel both sides. My problem is how do I create multiple windows? If I have two windows next to eachother can I just overlap the mullions (this creates an inaccurate window schedule however) or do I have to create a multiple window family? Also, how do I do a corner in say a 250mm wall? Usually there is a 100mm post in the corner where the sections meet. At the moment if I but the windows up I see a 250mm wide bit of wall in the corner in plan, whereas I should see a 100x100mm post.

Thanks for that, I just needed a pointer in the right direction. I am trying to teach myself from scratch until we get training next month.( I have been using Autocad for the last 10 years though) As I have stated before, the documentation that comes with this program is not very adequate.

mr spot as usual has the answer. can i just say as regards the documentation - i thought so at first too. but can i suggest something? as a now 7 month user, i have found a lot of help from a few sources. revitcity, especially a few regular experts, eg mr spot. trawl through as many threads as you have time for. i look every day for half an hour min. revit tutorials - all these get you started. spend time looking. revit help - i find this much better than most software. especially the tables describing terms. at your training - you are likely to receive a revit book, which i have read most of. a common theme? spend time on learning. revit's capacity is mind boggling, and the only to understand it is to dedicate time to figuring it out. but having been at it a fairly short time, i am amazed at how quickly i can produce things that look great. keep trying!
