    Applying outlets to casework

    Is it possible for casework family to host electrical outlets and switches? Or would I have to create a wall in the casework to host the outlet?

    That´s exactly why all outlets should be facebased and not wallbased :banghead:

    So as you already guessed, you´ll either have to remake all the outlets to be facebased, or create a bogus wall... :beer:

      Bollocks!
      Ok, guess I'll just recreate them, not that many for this project, just a small apt renovation.

        Go search for the Revit 2011 MEP content library. They are all Face Based.

          A related question:
          Is it possible to have my outlets show up on my RCP without forcing my cut plane to be at 1' or anything super low?

            I think (correct me if I'm wrong guys) that if you add an invisible line to the outlet family in the Z direction, it will show up since the cut plane is technically cutting the family. Even thought it's just an invisible line.

              As far as I know this should indeed do the trick.

                For reference, the issue was discussed in this other thread:
