Forgive me if this has been asked before or (more likely) a blooming obvious answer, but I have looked through the help files and forum and havent found an answer.

 Working in a local council we have a lot of refurb's and extensions to existing buildings (schools etc), a lot from the 20's, 30's and 40's. Most of the these building have splayed window openings and i would like at best to be able to show this in the 3d views, at worst on the floor plans, i belive i know how to do the latter but any tips would be helpful.

 i have very limited experience of creating new family items as i have either found what i want here or been able to edit the standard revit items.

i have (tried) to attach basic cad sketch of what i am describing.

 

Forgot to add i am using Revit 2010

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

 

Scott

Here is a cheating way you can do it,

I'll have a play and see if I can come up with anything better, but this works in 3Dand you can just mask reigon to make it work in plan

Another way is to edit your window by stretching the opening and placing two masses inside of it, the first being aligned to your external wall, and give it the parameter of 'Ext Mat'

Draw your splayed profile for the other and give it the parameter of 'Int Mat'

 Done as shown

be careful with it, as any bump patterns might not match up with your wall

Hey

 

Thanks for the quick reply, i like the first idea as i can create i single plasteboard wall and do the profile, it does mean doubling up on walls but oit gives the desired effect. as you say in the second isea it knocks the materials out on my test render,

 

i was just wondering if there was a way of doing the splay in the window component itself, but may be not.

 

Many thanks for you time and effort, i appreciate it.

 

Scott

the second is built into the window itself.

Just follow what I did step by stop:Increase the opening

Add the solid extrusions

Align them up

Thanks for the info Kingrevit.

 

We have Revit on Subsciption so should be getting the 2011 disks soon, but the trouble is we have to wait for our IT dept to install, which could be anytime within the next 6months before they get their finger out.

 I will however download the Demo and have a look at home.

thanks again
