I spent a good portion of today creating a parametric sunshade family. I started by using the Generic Model wall based.rft template (RAC2008 build: 20070524_1700). I had everything flexing properly and then tried to insert it into my building model. I was able to insert the sunshade family onto "normal" walls just fine (i.e. cmu, brick, stud, etc) but I don't need to provide shade on these walls ... I need to provide shade to the windows in my curtainwall. Revit wouldn't let me insert the sunshade on the curtain wall.
1. Is there a way to attach generic wall based families to curtain walls?
2. If not, is there an easy way to convert a wall based family to a plain old generic family? Without surprise, Revit won't let me copy/paste.
