    Wall Tiling - Trim mass by inserted object

    Hello,

    I try make a family for wall tiling via tamplate "general model". Everything works perfect, except autotrimming by inserted object into wall (eg. door or window). Is some way to solve my problem, please?

    the "wall tiling" probably should have been made as a new wall type, with only the tile as a material. You then draw the tile as a wall, next to the brick wall, and use Join Geomtery to make them into one. Then window and door openings will cut both walls.

    Since you made it as a Generic Model, then there isn't a way, since doors and windows know to cut through a Wall when placed, but not a Generic Model.

          Not necissarily true Scott... Although I agree you could better use a new Wall Type, or even a Wall Sweep this might be useable, depending on how your Windows are created. When you have a Window Family created with a Void instead of Wall Opening this can work. You'd have to open the family, go to "Family Category and Parameters" (button above Family Types button) and check "Cut with Voids". This would cut the GM too...
