Somebody here modified our door & window families to add a symbolic line indicating Header (or Lintel when in Masonry) But since I did not do it, not sure how to tell you to do it. Is that what you mean or do you want a Header/Lintel that is actually modeled??

I would suggest creating a wall beased generic model family.  You can then utilize a void to cut the wall and a solid extrusion to create the lintel.  You can even go as far as setting up symbolic lines to show the centerlines for the openings.  You will need to constrain the thickness of the lintel to the wall as well as the void section.  I would suggets setting up parameters for lintel overhang (left and right bearings) Lintel depth, Height of opening, Width of opening, etc. I tend to use instance parameters for the opening width to allow me to snap to the architectural cad files.

 

If you generally work with arch that use revit too it would be more beneficial to set up a door family.  Then if your using copy/monitor you can swap out their doors for you lintels.

In my oppinion lintels should be part of the door or window with a switch option for on or off that goes for cills as well, it will get a bit tricky as thier are so many fariations. Lintols differ from country and type of building technology employed. In South Africa we build mostly with wet trades. Attached is a conventional precast concrete lintel good for a make shift situation. It is fifficult to select and change after placed in a wall hence the 15mm offset for the plaster thickness. Change that to 0mm place lintel and change size as required.

Hi Yohan

Would linking it to a door/window be the best way? Many lintols are for openings with no barrier.
