I attached an image of what the final product should look like.  I created that look by having a sweep on the wall for the sill extension/detail.  Then I had to add a wall opening for the curtain wall.  Then I added the curtain wall.Then I had to create a reveal that cut the angle out of the wall from the face of thecurtain wall.

I have a building with multiple punshed openings.  They all have a 30 degree slope from the exterior face of the window out to the face of the wall.  I tried using windows and that worked great for putting the right size window in and a flat sill.  But I can't make it sloped.  So I tried creating a wall openeing then placing a curtain wall.  Again, a flat sill.  I then tried creating a new component as a void and used the cut geometry function to get the shape I wanted.  That worked, BUT I'd have to draw all the openings as new components or have 1 BIG component.  Neither is what I need to do.  I thought I could just copy that component around to create the multiple openings, but you can't.

Is there another way, without using the reveal/sweep commands to get this angled sill?

Hi, Big confusion here, why don't you create a "Windows family" and include there that slope sill? also you can create that same sill and give them the parameter for the slope angle so you can change them in project...

I don't know how.  Smile

I already have a window family that has this window the way I want it.  How do I add a sloped sill, with a component and cut geometry?

Just form an extrusion with the sill shape that you require and lock it to the two side reference planes.  Give it a material parameter so that you can get the same finish as your walls - or different.  Make the opening size large enough to house the sill and window - you don't need to cut anything.
