    Change hosting?

    I'm pretty sure the answer is no, but it's been a while since I've been in these families, so I thought I'd ask:

    We've got a whole bunch of Wall-hosted Cabinets.
    I'd like to change them to Face-based.
    Possible without breaking them. There are a LOT of contraints.
    No, they do not use nested components.

    Well... there is a post on RFO about a methodology to do what you're asking. It involved linking a model with the host and family attached and using copy/monitor to extract the family to the host file and editing it from there. I couldn't get it to work but the video that was linked to the post showed it working so I must have been doing something wrong... I think you have to do it from Revit MEP but I'm not sure.

    Of course I don't know about all your constraints but it's worth an exploration.
