Issues with wall based family

Dear all,

I’m trying to place a lintel generic model wall based on top of all the doors in the project. Currently i managed to extract the information i need from the doors, but for some reason the lintel family are not in the correct coordinate and the geometry is not showing up.

SP_Lintel test.rvt (2.6 MB)
SP_Lintel V1.1.dyn (62.6 KB)

Thanks in advance for your help.


It will not work as it’s wall based family and you use family by point . You might use new family “Metric generic model” it will work with node “family instance by point” and then adjust it’s height by the parameters you get from doors.

I hope it helps.

Thank you both for your replies

Johannes, i did use the springs nodes and it worked great.

Many thanks
