    Wall Hosted Family on a Column

    Hi all, I have a family of a fitting which is being mounted on a number of walls in my building. As it's being fixed to the wall, I've set it up as a wall based family. I've had someone going round placing these families in the model and all was going great until we came to one that is actually being fixed to a column and not a wall. Revit therefore doesn't want to know. Surely theres an easy way to change a setting somewhere in the family so I can put this on a column instead?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    While there might be a workaround your best bet is to rebuild the family as Face Based.

    Other than Door and Window families, which may need to query the thickness of their host, I can't think of another situation where a hosted family is better than a face based.
