Does anyone have any good tricks for the following scenario? Demo existing plaster and existing windows from existing 3 wythe brick wall, fur out wall with new construction and add new windows in same locations as existing windows as well as adding new windows. Revit works well with entire new, demo, or existing but it is difficult with partial situations.

I can see your problem  I can't give you an easy answer, but you could do this with design options and maybe a combination of phases.  But this is complicated because REVIT will fill in the demo'd window.  I'd place the existing wall with windows to be demo'd in DO1 and a duplicate of that wall complete in DO2 ... the furred wall may want to host the window... depends on where it wants to be.  Join the furred wall with DO2 wall... that means they are both in DO2

Thanks for your reply WWHub. How wmight the phases work into this? Would this slow the model down significantly? I was considering using the linework tool to essentially demo and hide parts of the wall in some of the views and potentaily demoing windows and placing new ones in the same position. My existing windows have different muntin bar patterns from the new. This is not an easy method either and if my memory serves me right the replacement windows in the same location can be somewhat problematic. I think I will have to do some further experimenting before I go through with the whole building.

I personally don't like to use many phases.  The DO will probably do the trick and you can set up your views to show the correct DO.  What you should not do is have two DO's on that have the same components in the same place. 

 

Replacement windows in the same place will work just fine using DO's because the host wall has to be in the DO as well.  So this is really an either/or condition.  That is where DO's are best used.

 

DO's will not slow the model at all and I don't see phases slowing the model.
