    Default imported window "can't make the type"

    when i go to place it in my wall i get the warning that it "can't make the type". I'm working in the "existing" plan and the window is existing. It will allow me to place the window in a wall separate from my model (that i was going to use for my window elevations (that wall is also existing). but not in my model

    Sometimes this can happen when a window doesn't flex correctly with a thicker or thinner wall in your project compared to the thickness of the generic hosting wall in your window family. In your window family try defining some thicker and thinner walls to host the window, or just change the thickness of the hosting wall in the window family. You can usually figure out where the problem is by trying extremes like a 3" thick wall or a 12" or 18" thick wall.
