Hi everyone!

I've added an extrusion profile to a wall, to create a sort of boiserie (h: 2 meters). Actually, this profile "close" every opening of the room (windows and doors). From the extrusion profile dialog box I've checked "cuttable" but nothing changed...

How can I figure it out?

 

Thanks

(I suppose this is depending by the window and door family that I uploaded in my project...)

You must not have done what you said.  The below assumes only one wall - not mutltiple walls.

  1. If you added an extrusion to the wall definition, then that would have been cut automatically by windows or doors.
  2. If you added a wall sweep to the wall then that too would be cut at windows and doors.
  3. So instead, you must have added an in-place sweep.   That will not be cut, you will have to add a void to cut that or use seperate sweeps.

I made a 100% profile wall extrusion.

Instead, I uploaded a new window familly and it works... So... there should be a problem with the previous familiy...

In the picture attached, the "old" window is in the middle.

I guess I don't see the wall extrusion you were having problems with unless you mean the multi-colored area.   If you did an extrusion for this then I have a better solution for you.  Use a thin wall and join that wall to the other wall.   We do that all the time for wall veneers like tile and stone.

Yes, the "multi-colored area" is the stone cladding, that is the profile extrusion.

I will learn your method, many thanks!
