Hi All

a particular louver window family i want to make as follows.

1: i made a big extrusion as frame applying height and width and length,

2: Then i made holes in it for louwer panels as void extrusion, i made one void extrusion, and i want to array it, array works good. 

3: i tried to change the width of void opening that is linked to a parameter, 

but the dimension not changing and getting error message. if i ungrop and avoid array, i can change void dimensions, but in array i cant.

is there any solution for changing dimensions of objects that is in array so that all objects will change its size in the array.?

How big are the holes? If they are tiny - like you would see in perforated metal, then just use a mesh material instead of actually cutting out holes.  There is a few default metal steel mesh materials in Revit you can use. Cutting out holes will make for an overly complicated family and will slow down your model if you use them too many times as Revit struggles to process the thousands of faces and edges.
