Hi -

I have created a window family which is an old style sash window with an arched brick head for a building survey. In order to do this I had to make a rectangular ope, add the window, head and cills, and fill in the rest of the jambs with brick to match the host wall.  There is a lot of detail to the interior part of the window and the internal jambs are chamfered so therefore I had to make the window ope the way I did.

Unfortuatetely I now get a line around the window where it meets the wall as you can see from the attached image. Can anyone please advise as to how to hide these lines/edges in an elevation view?

I am using Revit 2014 by the way

Thanks.

Hi ArchimediaIE,

1. Why does the wall rough opening have to be regutangular? it can be any shape.

2. My recommendation is to create a window family just like your are building a window.

    a. Create a window family with exact the same rough opening.

    b. Add trim pieces around and the sill applying to the surface of the wall.

Keep in mind, modeling it as you are building it.

 

Sorry, I mis-understood your problems.

Based on your descritions, the brick must be a veneer. You might use two walls, one is the structure wall, which has the window in it; the other the brick veneer. This way you will not have the lines, then apply the trims and the sill on the surface of the brick veneer.

The easier way to work around is using linework, use invisible line style for each line. But you have to hide those lines in each view. Under "Modify", "View Panel" click "Line Work" icon, select "Invisible Lines" in Line Style, then click each line you want to hide, sometimes you have to click on the same line several times, if that line has more than one on top of each other.

Hi CDWdavid,

thank you so much for your advice, the reason why I didn't make the opening the same as the front opening and cill is because the inside is a different opening too, ie it's a differenr size to the front, please see the attached image. I am not sure if you can make a window opening which is different on one side of the wall to the other side, maybe this is possible ? 

I will see if I can do your linework method as I will only need to do this for the front elevation, and hopefully that will solve my problem. If you think it is possible to have a window opening (void) which is different on the exterior to the interior can you let me know please and I may try that.

Many thanks for your help, I am new to revit and this is my first pointcloud to revit survey that I have done,

Regards

Peter

Hi CDWdavid,

I used the invisible line method that you suggested and it worked perfectly, thanks again for your help. I may also look into have two diferent window voids and edit the family as that would be the preferred result.

regards

Peter
