    Doors/Windows in multiple walls

    I have a main wall, and a second wall which is simply some furring, for which I wish to add doors and windows. I understand that I need to use Join Geometry in order to get doors & windows to cut through both walls.

    However, if I'm using a family that shows a jamb and trim, such as the standard door family Exterior - Half Glass, the jamb and trim do not extend out to the face of the furring. The cut does, but my trim is still using the main wall face.

    How do I get trim & jambs to respect Join Geometry?

    You won't get it to do it automatically. You'll need doors that have manual controls built in.

      Can you recommend a well built door family with manual controls, then?

          I think this is for the most current (freely released) doors: https://www.revitforum.org/architect...-v4-r2015.html
          Otherwise as Glen mentioned - Aaron makes some mighty pretty doors.

            If you to go the Families Forum, there is a link to an entire library of older doors that have manual controls built in to them, that are available for free download. I have a much more advanced library than those, that my company sells. As we arent supposed to advertise here, shoot me an email if you want more information.

            Other options are to take that library thats on the forum, deconstruct them, learn from them, and build your own. Depending on the functionality you want them to have, it can be a considerable amount of time. (A lot of folks i know have taken that library, and actually just removed the functionalities they didnt want, too).
