Hi,

 

Good Afternoon,

 

I was wondering if you could help with an issue with void extrusions in Revit. We have got a number of casework components which we have nested together in a curtain wall family. We are trying to cut a 45 degree angle at the corners using void extrusion (please see below image).

 

But Revit is not allowing us to do a void extrusion through all of the casework components. We have ticked the cut with voids to the caseworks family components and when loaded into the curtain wall family ... the cut geometryis not working. the nested family cannot be selected to apply the void cut.

 

Would there be a way in which we can cut a 45 degree angle all the way through the casework components? And if not is there a simple way to do so instead of having to edit each casework component and cutting through each one individually?

 

I have also attached the Revit file which we are having difficulties performing the void extrusion as well.

Please HELP!!

This is not casework - it is a curtainwall panel.  You need to pay attention to your category settings.

You have really complicated things that should not be complicated.  Why is this in a curtain panel family?  Why is this casework?   I really don't understand it's use or what you are doing in the project.

 

There is no way to cut this family in a project and any void created in the family will be a curtain panel void so it will never cut a casework element.

Hi..

 

thanks for your reply.  i will try to explain my reasons for creating or shall we say complicating the family as this way.

 

What i want to achieve:

 

I want to make a curtain wall panel which i can load into a project.  The panel is made up from many components.  I have created the components using casework family and then loaded them in to a curtain wall family...where i wanted to void extrude the components whilst they are nested together.

As you have mentioned...this method will not be possible.  Could you kindly advise what would be the ideal solution for creating this panel?

 

Which family should i use to create the components?  Which family should i load the components into to assemble my panel of components.  

 

finally i hope to create a curtain wall in a project, split the curtain the curtain wall using the grid option and then loading my panels into it.  I have spent months trying to establish a best solution.  If you could kindly look into this issue and advice accordingly... i would really appreciate it.

 

Regards,

 

Irfan

Why are you adding casework components to a curtain wall, you don't give a reason and this makes no sense and I am not sure what you are trying to achieve with the end result.  Have you downloaded and read the Revit families guide?  If not you should start there because I'm not sure you understand families and their types.
