    Only Outer Framing Needed

    Help!! Previously, I posted on the forum to remove window framing, leaving only the glass but now I need the outer framing only, without the internal partition framing. When I changed the height & width of the Outer Frame family, I got the Unfinished Window Frame as shown in jpeg. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

    The Multi-Panel_Awning_1958 is the original window frame with internal framing. The Multi-Panel_Awning_1958_Outer_Frame is the one which I have done without internal framing but the height & width cannot be adjusted parametrically.

    Maybe you don't want to hear this, but it is better to model your own content, the families in the Internet are quirky and some times are just Acad objects! , whilst modeling your own object you can learn about how things happen in Revit, just my two cents, regards

    Thank you Andres for your thoughts. But I'm just a beginner in family creation so I do hope to learn as I go along.

    I'd say jump in the deep end and just start your own family and come here if (when) you run into trouble. In my opinion the best way to learn.
    Troubleshooting families you got from the web teaches you a lot of wrong stuff a lot of the time.

    all people here were beginners at a moment, so you can, as @Robin Deurloo already said jump into the void and come here to ask for help!!

    AND the satisfaction of creating your own family is much higher then just downloading one from the web.

    The first family I ever made was during my training and was a table. Just a square table with square legs, nothing special at all. The teacher took a long time to explain and I was sitting there wanting to do a building instead of a table. But that table explained a lot about family creation, ref. planes, parameters, materials, restraints and a lot of errors. In the end we got a table which we could change with the parameters we made for width, height, length, material en leg locations and size, etc.

    From there on you start to add a bit more complexity with formula's if needed, I think my second family was a window where we made a formula to calculate the inner frame locations and used a parameter to choose the infill for each part of the window.

    Everything I learned with that table I still use in all my families.
