    Custom gypsum wall board

    Can somebody give me an idea on how can I model this type of wall board including a repetitive support post between the plaster boards ?
    Furthermore it would be great if doors or windows could be hosted and cut the "wall" wothout having to use voids etc.

    Look at this: Framing Timber Walls in Revit® Model | Wood Framing Wall+ | AGACAD TOOLS4BIM

    If you don't want to pay for something like this, you would have to build separate walls: one curtain wall for the frame, and two additional walls just for the plaster boards (which can include a skirting/coving as a sweep). The internal curtain wall for the frame would be the host for the doors. Specify your curtain grids as where the framing/studs will go, select the curtain panel where the door will be, change it to a regular wall to host the door. You will have to cut the profile of the plaster board walls to leave the space for the door, or make wall openings to both of them.

    Sorry if this does not help, but I don't see other way of doing it, unless you use Dynamo and some sort of scripting. Alternatively, just stick with detail drawings to show that level of detail, and leave the 3D model as it is.

        as an alternative to changing a curtain panel to a wall type to host a door one could just use a curtain wall door which are available OOTB in flush and glazed types. Saves a step...

        and, man, that's a lot of detail to model, so I'd take asintoras's advice in his last sentence!
        I'm retired, if you don't like it, go around!

          I'd suggest a Linebased detail item for this...not try to model it. Would get too busy on plans.
