Hi all,

 

I'm in the midst of trying to model an opening for a two-sided shelf in an 'island' within a livingroom, placed alongside a double-sided fireplace. I want the opening to pass-through to the partition on the opposite side of the island assembly, meaing that I want a seamless opening through, in the same material as the surrounding wall (gypsum). The opening would be used to hold firewood.

 

Can anyone provide any clues as to how I should go about doing this? I've uploaded an image of the island and the opening. As you can see, I have managed to cut out an opening profile on each side of the island assembly, but have not been able to 'join' the two.

 

I'm using Revit 2013.

 

Lend me a hand!

 

Thanks Smile

Create a simple window family that has the gyp bd around the opening ....

...or...

simply paint the interior edges with gyp bd.

You haven't understood my problem. Again, the opening has to cross over to the other side of the island assembly. The island is 2'-4" deep, so creating an opening and painting the edges or adding a window will not solve the problem. As is visible in the uploaded image, openings have been created on each side of the island, such that there is an opening in the wall assembly, but nothing crossing over between the two walls, within the island.

I've uploaded a plan view, so that everyone can better understand my dilemma.

Create and in-place family the HxWxD that you need and make it the same material as your gypsum board (or whatever material you want it to be.

No - I didn't miss-understand.  You did not indicate how thick the wall was.  That could have been one - thick wall.  You need to be more descriptive in your question.

 

The window stiil works as one solution. Hosted in one wall but with the sides adjustable to pass through the other wall.  As does the paint, if the wall is modeled as a thick wall with two wyuthes of studs.  So too will an in-place family that goes through your opening.
