Is it possible to convert a wall based family to a floor based family? Without copying the element from the wall based family to the floor based.

There is no way to do this that I know of.  And I doubt that you can copy anything from one family to another.  You will have to build your family from the correct template.

You should be able to copy/paste the elements from family to family (make sure both files are open), but you are going to lose all the constraints. If this is a parametric family with more than a few elements it's likely going to take WWHub's suggestion and just start from scratch.

Can I suggest that if the family does not need to cut it's host that you make it an un-hosted family, and if you need to cut it's host you can make it a faced based family, and use the new Cuts with void when inserted feature.

anothe advantage of a face baced family is you can nest it in a wall based, floor based, ceiling based family if you need to, allowing you to quickly make the variations you may need, you just need to map the parameters through.

Thanks for the replies. I know I was grasping at straws. I just hoped that there was a new feature I didn’t know.
