I am just beginning the journey toward understanding Revit families.

I created a parametric door frame using the Imperial Door Template with a parametric door panel loaded. The parameters for controlling the height, width, depth of the door frame seem to be working properly.

However, I do not understand how to control the position of the door frame relative to the centerline of the wall when the wall is thicker than the door frame.  One version of this door frame family aligns the face of the frame with the outside face of the wall when the wall gets thicker, and another version of the door frame family centers the frame with the wall centerline when the wall gets thicker.

I cannot figure out what I did to make the two families behave differently.  How to I control the position (alignment) of the door frame relative to the wall outside face?  Eventually, I will want to create a parameter to control offset depth.

The two door frame families are attached.

Thanks.

See if these work the way you want. It seemed it was a simple fix where the frame wasnt attached to the walls ref. lines so when the wall sized changed the frame stayed the same size.

Thanks afc4 for the response. Sorry for not following protocol; I forgot to mention that I am using Revit Architecture 2008, thus I am not able to open the files you edited.  Would you please post them again in 2008 format?

Liveinrosecity did you figure this one out in the end?

I am having exactly the same issue, ie what option/tickbox/method controls what the door face aligns with. It is locked to the wall centerline instead of the outer face.

Create your door family around a placement work plane well outside the wall (like 12" ).  I would make the outside face of the door farme on the placement WP.  Then add an offset dimension and make it a label from the face of the wall to the workplane.  Change the offset dimension and watch the door move into the wall.
