    family who cut two panels at the same time

    Hello,

    is there a possibility to make a family who cuts in two panels at the same time ?
    I need a family door/window who you can drag wherever you want in a curtain wall without messing with the grids.
    With a wall opening you can cut in 2 panels and drag where you want it, but can you make this with a family asswell ?

    thx for the advice

    Sure...if you don't have grids. But curtain wall doors are made to replace panels and panels are constrained by grids.

    Else, use a wall instead of a curtain wall.

      Thx for the answer
      Problem is that i need to use the curtain walls with grids, i need to make a plan for sip panels. I have to see the seperations from the panels in a plan view and elevation view. Unfortenaly that's not possible with a normal wall. yes you can make a surfacepattern with the correct dimensions so yuo can see that in the elevation view, but you cant see that pattern in a plan view.(cutting the wall) I also need a quantity count of the sip panels used.
      I just find it strange you can cut 2 panels with a wall opening, can't understand why you can't do that with a opening nested in a family for example

        You can still make a curtain wall door in the middle of a larger panel, or between two panels - you just have to do some careful segments and merging. It will get more complicated if you are using custom panels.

          why not just edit your curtain wall profile and put a hole where ever you want? What is a SIP panel? If it's a door like others have assumed just build a wall in the hole and add a door to it

              Every time I've interacted with a curtain wall with an edited profile there are panel fragments that produce errors - do you just ignore those, or have a solution for them?

                I kill them with RAID! seriously I just turn them into empty panels so they don't schedule then ignore them. This is another in what is a long list of Revit curtain wall idiosyncrasies. I don't let it get me down...

                  thanks for that but now I'm curious...what is a "structural" insulated panel and how is it different than any other insulated panel?

                  edit: and if I had to put a, say concrete panel into the hole I would just create another curtain wall type with no mullions, create one in the hole and have it's curtain panel be of a makeup to mimic a concrete panel...that work?

                    Rigid insulation with (usually) steel or fc sheet laminated either side
