    Make Generic Model Adaptive > Floor Based

    Hello I am just getting started with Revit.

    I wonder if I can I turn Generic Models into floor based.
    Also, When I load these models into the Project environment they appear transparent. How can I make them opaque?

    thanks a lot

    If you have made the family from the unhosted Generic family template, you can not just change it to floorbased with a flip of a button. It's either: A, redo the family using the right template, or B, nest the unhosted family into a new blank family, based on the floorbased template.
    BTW, why do you need it to be floor based?

    Don't know why your family shows as transparent... Maybe you have assigned a transparent material to it? Or the view is set to wireframe? Or you have applied a VG override to it? If neither of those, post the family here so we can have a look at it. You should also do a little research on "Masking Regions"...

      PMMunkholm, thanks a lot.

      I want a floor based because I am trying to model a custom window wall unit. The generic templete worked well, I gust thought a floor based would be nicer.
      I will look into the transparancy issue ... Thanks for your suggestions

        is your family transparent only when it is selected?....Big R>options>graphics tab>semi transparent check box
