I created a wall as an 'wall' in place family. Now if I don't have masses on it dissapears. So in order to see these walls I have to see all the other pink/purple masses in my model when i turn that mass cube on. What can I do to NOT make them a mass without recreating them as they were a b*tch to make,  kinda complex.

The one thing I noticed and the reason I did an in place family is that it gives you a volume of concrete for the wall. Creating a model mass and turning it into a solid will not do that.

Are you sure when you "Create-in-place" you choose the right category (WALLS)????

Too many people just use a "mass" without recognizing that they can set the category.  Poor early choices will always get you down the road but we learn from our mistakes.


You should be able to create a new in-place walls family by editing your mass and copy to clipboard your sketch and pasting into the new family...


Two projects side by side work well to transfer this information.

Also. in place wall families will give the volume in a schedule.
