Hi everyone,

I'm modeling window families on revit which operate correctly and as appropriate, except that i find a problem when adding a window to a wall (cavity wall with interior and exterior finishes) , that is i want to see how wall wraps its finishes to the window jambs as well as trying to solve that issue on the sectional view i.e on the sill and head. Actually wrapping does take place in the plan as i add a window family to the wall, but i want to edit the structure of that wall such that it will behave differently and as appropriate at the window jambs.

Unless you add something to your window family, you can't control "wrapping" at head and sill.  Much of this is typically done in detail views with 2d elements.

I'm sorry if i did not understand your case very clear, but when it comes to wall wrappings with windows, I normally make a new wall or an "automatic embedded" element wall which is the same size as the window, then I align the window sills and frames to the new wall's perimeter, so that the new wall is "invisible". Then, if this articulation is repetitive, I group them. Not sure if I actually made the whole procedure more complicated, but I tried it in one of my project and it worked. Is your case the same?

fraz,

 

I don't understand why you are doing what you say you do.  Your process seems to be overly complicated and not necessary.  You windows should be set up so that you can control their setback from the face of the wall they are in.

WWHub,

Yeah, you're right, it's not necessary. I guess I kinda got the whole situation mixed up with another. But there was a time when I did a similar thing as I stated earlier; I cant remember why though (I dont have the file in this machine). When I do, I'll post it in this thread. Thanks a lot.
