    User Friendly Parametric Revit Windows

    Hi All,

    I have struggled to find good parametric windows on places like Revit City and BIMobject so I ended up creating two windows in two different ways. I would be interested to know which one you guys prefer such as:

    - Which ones are easier for everybody to use?

    -Pros and Cons of each design

    -What would you change / make better?

    I would look into shared families and type parameters instead of loading everything into the family and using visibility parameters. You have some type parameters already but switching to shared nested families will add a lot of flexibility.

    Yup make your own. You'll be a lot happier when it comes to using windows with arches. Hope you're up on your trig and calculus though
