    Partial cut opening for a Beam

    Dear All,

    I want to make a partial cut along the wall for a beam as shown in the photo, shall i make a cut in the wall or a new family ?
    I tried both options but it didn't work, I think it is simple but i can't fix it.

    Thanks in AdvanceClick image for larger version.

    you can use a model in place void, or create a void as part of the beam family, or you could also model a thinner wall in place if you wished to....the simplest answer here is to model a void, either in place or create a void family to insert.

    I would make a family. It will be usable on future projects and is easy to quantify for QA/QC.

    I have a generic family for this, it hosts to the face of the wall and cuts the desired width, height and depth.

    Model in place should be unique, one-off situations. Revit provided wall openings are difficult to control and lack controls so I don't use them.
