Hello everyone,

 

I am trying to make a family of wall having regular voids. I made a generic model and then loaded the family in a project to built an in-place wall.

 

However when I place a door on the wall, the door is not placed on complete width of the wall. Same is the case with windows. Please have a look at the attached photographs.

 

How can I resolve this issue? Any help would be really appreciated.Thanks!

Not sure what you are doing or even why....

Are these supposed to be studs?  There are add-in programs that will model these.

Why would you model the inside of a wall?  It can't be seen and the standard in the industry is not to model studs.   Quantities come off with the wall type.

 

Not sure how you did an "in-place" wall using your generic model family.  If this is just a wall hosted void family then why not a regular wall with this family in it?   No reason to mess with a mass.

Dear WWHub,

 

Thanks for your interest. 

 

The structural department at my university has come up with a new wall and floor system with Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) Panels. I am making the BIM families of that. So this is not a wall hosted void family, it is the wall itself.

I'm sorry but there is a miss-understanding here.  Walls are system families.   You can not create a wall from a generic family template.  

 

I don't know what you have to host your door in your model unless it is not a trypical door family either.

Hi,

Solution is very simple. I have shared a image. You need to click at that particular position (junction of 2 cavities).  Any other position would make the doors and windows appear attached to only one side of the wall.
