 Our company specialises in precast architecture, we are currently trying to implement a new system of drawing panels. Key to this new system is the ability to create windows and doors that are not dependent on a wall. What is the easiest way to create these independent families?

 

Currently using Revit: Architecture 2008

Problem solved.

 Model the window as a generic model and switch family type to window.

You could also (of course) just create them using a Window template and then turn off the visibility of the wall as you view it. Just another option.

This method won't work, because the Window template is a wall hosted template. Therefore you have to have a wall to place the window in on a project.
