This seems like something that should be way simplier. But, I am a brand new Revit user and I am creating wall types. I'm trying to get a wall to return, or wrap, at an opening. I want the brick on the outside of the wall to return and STOP at the cmu. Right now it goes to the centerline of the wall, the brick cutting through a portion of the cmu. It would not do that in real life. I can edit the door family and add a reference line that makes the brick stop at the cmu. But then that distance is set for that door family, and all are going to be the same. If I put the door into a different wall, the wrapping on that wall doesn't look right because it's stopping at the reference plane. Is there a way just to tell it RETURN THE BRICK BACK TO THIS WALL COMPONENT?

Wall finish wrapping is controlled in the wall properties. Select the wall and there are options for wrapping at inserts as you've seen it defaults to the wall centreline. Apologies if you're already aware of this. There isn't a way of telling a wall to wrap to a certain wall component unfortunately. It would be nice if the returns had grips on them that you could adjust as necessary. Then beyond this you could save a return instance and apply to other similar inserts... Wishlist item?

Thanks! I guess I'll just have to leave them returning to the wall centerline. It's definitely a wishlist item, along with making my own wall categories, and making a wall component have an adjustable width. Is there a wishlist for Revit? Or a place to submit suggestions?

Factory workers as they are known, frequently visit the forums at www.augi.com. Best bet would be to sign up, keep updated and post wishes/problems there as well.
