I am trying to create a window family that has an angled window sill.  I am having problems with the opening cut just being a strait void form extrusion.  Does anybody have any suggestions on how I can get a window family with and angled sill that will only cut part of the wall that the sill is angled on?

You can use a void in the window family to cut the wall rather than the 'opening'.  Be aware though that you cannot mix the voids/openings in the window family so you have to use one or the other.

any way to do this without using voids?  I have multiple walls that i need the window to cut through, this can only be done with opening not voids.

Add the sill right to the window family

the problem is that the sill is sloped rowlock and when its added to the family and placed at the correct height there is a piece of wall that shows through the sill, easy fix if using voids but when you need to use openings there doesnt seem to be a way to fix it.

Can you attach a photo of your problem.  I am having a hard time picturing it.

are you saying create the sweep/void in another family then load that into the window family?
