    Nested Family not Cutting Wall Sweep

    I'm having an issue getting a shared & nested window sill to cut my watertable that is on a brick wall. The nested family will cut the wall correctly but the wall sweep hates it and refuses to cut appropriately. I'm sure the answer is something simple but I'm stumped currently... Any thoughts?

    In your sill family uncut a host(face) with a void so it will not cut it and reload a family, now use Cut tool and the window will cut off a part of the wall sweep.
    Revit add-ins: Purger (delete UNUSED and selected line patterns & line styles, find & delete CAD), Rooms To Spaces, Schedule Utilities (Calculated Values/Combined Parameters To Tags, reuse view filter rules in schedule filters), View Filter Manager (with bunch of other features) at Autodesk App Store, View Filter Manager ML, SolarDaylight

      Edit your sweep profile (watertable-rectangular-profile.rfa) so it is below center(front/back) ref plane, not above and relocate wall sweep in the project as needed.

        That works but I'm hoping to not have to manually cut all 300 windows...

        No luck :banghead:

        Thanks for the feedback so far - I'll keep trying :beer:

        edit: PijPiwo's solution worked, it just required setting the sweep to not cut by inserts :crazy:

          Weird, I didn’t have to change that setting in your file. I just edited the sweep profile and adjusted the height of the sweep in the project and it worked for me.

            One more question now - If I adjust the profile with the proper profile (sloped for water shedding) the top of the wall pokes through. Any ideas on that one?

              model your wall the correct height? :hide:

                Yep, 1" lower will do.

                  The problem is if I change the wall height the sweep disappears because i adjusted the insert point of the sweep. It's a viscious circle today :banghead:
