    Large doors, Not cutting windows properly in model.

    I've look all throughout everywhere and have found lots of apparent answers to my questions, but still nothing seems to pan out. I simply need the windows I have cut out of the custom door I made to cut through the wall in my model space. Have tried many things, using cut geometry with voids and the cut with void option etc. In the family viewer its all good, and looks correct, but in the model...things ain't right. I have uploaded some images to help explain my plight. I get the creeping suspicion that I'm simply missing something right in front of me, but either way any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

    Many thanks,

    JJ

      If you are doing this in a single door family, instead of nesting panels in you will need to have a void for the overall opening too. You also may need "cut with voids when loaded" checked, but I don't build doors with a single family so I'm not sure.

        Unless you are using voids in the family to cut the wall, you should be using the wall opening tool in the family to cut an opening in the wall as well.

          Thank you all for your help! I have tried the solutions given, but still not much luck, though I have been successful in creating a gaping hole via the void forms tool. Perhaps I should be using a different starting family to begin with?

          Here's a link to the family itself, hopefully it will provide some insight to my issue!

            I'm not sure what issue you are having. I loaded this into a project and hosted it to a wall with no problem. Vision lites cut appear to be working fine:


            Even a stacked wall assembly seems to work fine:


            Any more insight you can give us?

              Also, if you started with the door family template then you started with the right file.

                Wow...I wish my doors worked that well in my model. :banghead:
                I honestly have no idea what could be causing the windows to be behaving in such a manner? Everything else about this project seems completely normal...hold that one door.

                  Can you post a screenshot with the door hidden?

                  It looks as if the door isn't cutting the wall which possibly means there is no opening in the family that cuts the wall

                    Sorry for not being around, I have been out of the office for a few weeks, but I finally got it solved! It turns out my door was on a wrong, but very similar level which frigged the visibility through the glass! Thank you all so much for your help!
