im doing a refurb and we are removing some doors but keeping the opening.

My problem is, when i set the door to demolition on new construction it infills the opening, how can i stop this?

If you want to change what the wall infills with (i.e. you want to demolish a window and infill with a wall other than the wall type of the window host), you need to go into a section veiw that has the infill in question showing (so play with your phases so that you see the infill, not the window you demolished) and select the infill and change its properties.  If you want to demolish said window and have only an opening, no wall infill, you'll have to demolish it, let the wall infill, and then place a new opening exactly where the old window was.  As of yet, you cannot demolish an insert (like a door, window, or opening) without Revit automatically infilling for you.  Maybe in the next version.....

I found a work around that I think will work pretty good. If you set it up in your templete, it should get you what you want with little hassle each time moving forward.

I created a material, call it demolished opening and made it transparent. Not sure if this is necessary but I tried to make the material disappear as much as possible in the off chance it does show up somewhere by accident. Then I created a wall type (call it Demolished Opening) and made it 1/16” thick and assigned this new material to it. Again the 1/16” thickness is to make it as thin as possible in case it does show up somewhere but it shouldn’t. I assign ‘DEMO’ to the wall type mark.


Then I create a graphic display filter for walls with the type mark ‘DEMO’.


Then apply this filter to your views or view templates and make it “not visible”


Then when Revit infills the wall you demolished something out of, you select the infill wall and turn it to the Demolished Opening wall type and poof, it disappears (by which I mean every view with the filter set up in, it becomes not visable).
