    I would 100% do it using one of several methods, in Dynamo. Why not Curtain Wall with custom Curtain Panel Families?

    I would do it with normal walls, and Dynamo, if i was going to do it. Id have Dynamo place the components.

    I would 100% not use a Curtain Panel for that. None of the factors mentioned in that post change that. But if you are happy with it, awesome!

    Having said that, sounds like youre just saying the...

    Take it from someone who has done a lot of Framing Modeling:

    You are MUCH better off NOT using a Complex Family with Arrays, and NOT using Revit Curtain Wall. Both of these "appear fast" at first,...

    You cant *just* create a blank row that you can type in, no. To create another row, there would need to be abother linked file. But... that Linked File doesnt have to have anything in it...

    Yeah. I didn't really want to pick on them, but the model is a freaking wreck. The warnings. The CAD. The 3d extents of the levels.

    There is... A lot to fix.

    So... good news and bad news.

    First, the good news: It isnt your computer.

    Then, the bad news: Something in that view (Vista 3d 11) is broken, and the shadows look nonsensical.

    But: As was...

    An updated graphics card DRIVER or a machine with a better Graphics Card alltogether?

    Im betting you probably dont want to post the model here, but if you do, we can open it and see if the shadows...

    Ehhhh, i think Munkholm is on to something, here. I think your Graphics Card might not be up to the task, honestly.

    We have models with MANY openings, and the shadows generate correctly. Im not...

    The 2.2GB is the size on local NAS storage, after downloading, opening, and recreating the central file locally.

    But yes, its on BIM360. Most of our bigger projects are, since we work from...

    So, i just went and updated my post, because i had it zipped when i tabulated the size, and didnt realize other things were in there too. It's over 2GB (2.2), but not the 8GB i thought it was....

    Profiles with Detail Components is what Revit is "good at." The moment you want to get in to quantifying or having different objects for things like Extrusions, Gaskets, Sealants, etc, the Revit...

    I understand that "it happens a lot," but the bigger issue is that its assumed that its a "fact" that smaller models automatically mean they perform better, which is 100% not true.

    BTW, i have a...

    For. me, it would depend on if I was considering taking a job where I would have to work with that setup, and teach/train the staff to do the same, or if I was going to have freedom to tell them what...

    Then it's an awful BEP that's not adding value and is only creating senseless busywork. Seriously.

    This. Awful idea. Just don't. Who cares if the file is big?

    Yep. You need to change the parameter to Instance. Pretty basic. You may want to look up some tutorials on family building, for these things.

    Select your Annotation. Click the gray box in the properties palette next to "Placement Height." Associate it to the parent families *Placement Height.* Done.

    It works fine. Ours have been this way for years.

    One caveat is you have to use a Shared Parameter for the Elevation, which means you will have two elevation parameters: Yours plus autodesks. If...

    This is a bit of an odd post reanimation, if i do say so myself.

    Very much the same.

    4 Levels.
    Categories removed.
    Using the 1-4 integers as "parents" as its way simpler than trying to assign them the way Autodesk does.

    Take a look at your drawings, and decide if there are more lines at the reveals, or at the perimeter.

    My guess is, there are more at the reveals.

    In that case, put a VG:Filter on the View that...

    I would probably leave them all separate.

    Structural Framing families have *special behaviors* and things will change if you make a custom family with all three shapes in them. Revit will...
