I may have dug myself a hole and need some help if it's out there. I'm working on a project that has large expanses of full height windows as well as more traditional punched openings. Currently I'm using wall based window components for the punched openings and generic 3d model components for the full height windows. So far it has worked beautifully, but...It is now time to schedule my windows and I'm realizing that the schedules for each component category work independently. Does anyone know of a way to easily/efficiently combine two dissimilar components types into the same schedule? Basically, I want a generic component to think it's a window. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

My first thought is to change the category of your generic components to "windows". If they are families you created in the family editor, open them there and go to "setttings" "family categories & parameters" then change your family type to a "window". Save the family and re-load into your project. If they are in-place families, edit them and follow the same procedure. Try and see if this works. Tom

You can also create "multi-category schedules" if for some reason you don't want to switch the category of your in-place elements. This allows you to schedule anything in your project with the same parameters.
