Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing compound-element phasing, part of Phasing and Design Options in Revit.
Certain elements are a little bit more complex than others, and we might consider them Compound Elements.…These would include things like Curtain Walls which contain several nested components or…objects like roofs and floor slabs which are sketch-based objects that describe more complex shapes.…In both cases, you are going to want to consider them a little bit differently when it comes…to phasing, particularly when you want to demolish just a portion of the object.…So I'm in a file here called Phasing Compound.…If I wanted to demolish this entire Curtain Wall, no problem. I could just simply select…the Curtain Wall, go over here to the Phasing Properties, and demolish it.…
The trouble as you may recall that the parent object, in this case the parent Curtain Wall,…determines the phase parameters of all of the nested subcomponents.…So if was only interested in demolishing a portion of this Curtain Wall, like say these…two bays over here, then that's not going to work.…What I'm going to need to do instead is go through a slightly more complex process to…
