    Revit window family

    Hello, and thank you for accepting me!

    I'm a somewhat new Revit user (around a year) and I need to model a window family that has the following parameters:
    - variable number of divisions;
    - the divisions should be possible to have variable dimensions.

    I have modeled in the past windows that had a variable number of divisions using Array, but that means all divisions will be equal. I can easily model a family with a fixed amount of divisions and variable lengths - but I do not know if there is a way to do both.

    Sure can be done, but that will get complicated.

    If I would have to come up with a way from the top of my head, it would not be an array, because of what you mention, but probably have the max number of divisions in them and then use the Visibility parameter to hide the elements you don't need with some formula to control that. So if you need a division of 2 (1 mullion) all the other mullions will be invisible.

    I have gone the route of making different windows for different amount of divisions and then you can add dimensions to each division, like Cell_1_Width, Cell_2_Width, etc.
