The general rule for modeling in revit is to literally approach the model the same way you would actually build the building.  In the case of things like the filigree that decorates the face like that, most of ours ended up being wall or face based families that were applied to the wall.  So if we remove those families you literally have a typical wall assembly.  Our building had requirements such as the wall being modeled as solid stone facade, so our families had to be joinable to the wall to allow the materials to merge in section and plan.

How you do it really depends on what you need your model to convey tot he people that are building it and how you need the model to interpret the information.


Hope that helped, and best of luck!

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
