I want to make some setback in a revit wall , like a square shape or other shape setback in a wall but not doing an openings. I found reveals can do part of this, but if I want a circle shape setback in a wall , the reveals can't do this. look at my picture I want to make an arc setback.

  1. Goto an elevation view
  2. Set your workplane to be the face of that wall
  3. Create an in-place family - void extrusion
  4. name it
  5. Category wall
  6. Set it to cut the wall before finishing the family

sorry, I forgot to say that I want to make a recessive shape in a project file, not in a family, so I have make a mass in a wall, but I can not cut it in a wall, also I have made a viod but it too can't work in a project file. Is that no ways to produce an recessive shape in a wall in a project file?

as I followed your step make a in family void wall, but it can't finish the shape. as the attachment show the revit errors.

Some Void Forms of this family do not cut anything and will be deleted. To make a Void Form cut something else use the Cut Geometry tool.

WWhub told you this:

  1. Goto an elevation view
  2. Set your workplane to be the face of that wall
  3. Create an in-place family - void extrusion
  4. name it
  5. Category wall
  6. Set it to cut the wall before finishing the family

Did you do that? did you select the "CATEGORY: WALL" (not "MASS"Winking?

After this, go to a 3D or plan view and check if the void is cutting the wall like you want, then use the "Cut geometry" tool, select the void then select the wall, now you can finish your "in-place" (system) family.
