Need to change a structural column family to a generic family.

When I do and import it back in to project it wll not with out deleting all panels assocated with that family.

Using a genric family is the only way I have found to change line weight on reveals which are void extrusions.

question #2   how do you change extrusion to a different object style

 

Thanks,

precast100

Your post on this subject have been very unclear.  A picture of what you are trying to accomplish with respect to precast would be helpful.

When you speak of reveals, you don't tell us if they are running horiz or vertical.  Are you talking the chamfer at PC joints?  Why did you choose to create them as structural columns?  Have you considered using the curtain wall tool for doing PC panels?  Are reveals really the way to create the effect you are looking for?  When you speak of line weight are you talking cut or projection?  Are you using symbolic lines?  What about level of detail and visibility?  Did you create new sub-categories?

As for your category switch, first creating PC panels as a generic model would be bad.  Generic models cannot be scheduled and are the 'misc' category in Revit.  PC panels properly belong to either the wall category [my choice] or as you have done a structural category.  Doing them as generic models will cause nothing but problems for scheduling and model linking.  As you have found out, if you switch categories of a family mid-stream there can be major problems depending on which category goes to what category. 

A better explanation of what you are trying to accomplish would allow for some ideas to be presented by users of this forum.  You also need to be clear what it is you are trying to accomplish in terms of scheduling the PC panels.  Also, what is your role in the project?  Structural engineer, architect, PC panel supplier?  There are different answers for different roles.

Thanks for the reply

Here is the family, I need to have the reveals print lighter than the edges of panels.

 

Thank you for your help,
