Revit Architecture 2010

 I have a complex wall sweep that runs the entire length of the wall.  Above the sweep there is a window punched into the wall.  The window itself has complex recessed details around it and I also included the complex sweep as the sill.  I started using the window family and couldn't get the window and the wall sweep to join, which lead to having vertical lines on the left and right of the window in elevation.  I swicthed the family to a generic model which looks the same and I can join the sweep with the window and now there are no lines in elevation.

This was all great as a generic model until I needed to hide the model objects in plan and show lines and with a generic model you can't control the visibility of objects being cut in plan.

I'm hoping someone can give me another solution to have the cut visibility control like a window, but still allow me to join the wall sweep and window.  I've included a screen shot of what I'm looking to do.  Thanks!

Hmm!  I don't know if a wall sweep would enjoy joining with an element like a window... if I were you, I'd just use the linework tool and invisible lines to pretty up the elevations.  Should take less time than researching a better solution...

Why don't you just cut out the detail by creaeting a void with that shape?

I think I solved the problem by using the window family that has an opening that extends to the bottom of the sweep.  Then the sweep has the depth of the window recess.  I removed the check box from the sweep "cuts wall" and then joined the sweep to the wall.  Now the sweep is as deep as I need it at the windows but with it joined to the wall it still looks as though its on the face of the wall.  Complex to explain, but I did get it worked out, thanks for your help.
