    Area Boundaries and Windows/Doors

    Anyone else know what the expected behaviour of Areal Boundaries in Area Plans is when dealing with windows and doors?

    I have 2 instances of a window type (see image) and the Area Boundaries behave differently for each one. I can tell its using the outer 'wall closure' ref plane in the window family to locate the line, but why? And why is it different for both instances? ( they are both identical in size and head/cill height)

    Struggling to figure this one out.

    If you have the answer, thanks in advance.

    The walls where are the windows have the exact same hight?

    Because if a wall has a H height and a window has h height you have 2 situations:

    if h>H/2 you have the room boundry at the interior glass line.
    if h<H/2 you have the room boundry at the interior wall line.

    Maybe your wall is splitted or modified so you enter in this cases.

      Thanks for the reply but wall height makes zero difference(windows are hosted in the same wall).

      Interestingly, when I move the window with area boundary at wall line, then the boundary of the other window moves. Weird...

      ps. note this is Area boundaries and not rooms.

        Sorry for digging up old threads, but are there any answers to this? I am using revit 2013 and having the same issue. I suppose it is a nominal difference so I shouldn't care, but I'd like to know what is happening.

        Thanks.
