I am trying to create an opening in an existing wall which results in the wall no longer being room bounding. Wall openings have the desired effect execpt the phase for the opening cannot be changed from that of its host. I have various opening families but they do not result in the two adjacent rooms becoming one room.

 Any ideas much appreciated.

can you not split the wall up and demolish the part you want opening. Then in the existing just attach all the wall parts together.

From your question, I don't kow what you want or problem is but here is both answers.


Depending on how your opening was created - If the opening creates one room where you really want two, then just add a room seperation line. 


If you want one room but have two, turn the room bounding properties off for the wall.

Thanks for your replies. I have had to make the wall non bounding and add two room separation lines at the existing phase (for each room it is bounding). One of the room separation lines is then 'demolished' at new construction and I can add an opening. This saves me splitting the wall which is a boundary to more than one room.

I suppose my problem is that I expect to be able to either:

  1. Phase wall openings.

  2. Toggle room bounding on and off for opening families.

As i understand, the problem is just to make a non-bounding opening. Editing profile does not help. Splitting the wall would be OK, but you have to make 5 walls instead of one if your desired opening is somewhere in the middle of the wall (vertically also). 

I still don't have a solution
