Has anyone ever created a roof drain and a scupper to be placed in a roof and wall respectively?

Sorry I'm a new user and I have the same question! Did you find a way, or have a reply?

You can create a roof hosted family and a wall hosted family to meet the needs of you roof drain and scupper.

You might check Revit City or AUGI for family content to see if anyone has created one of these families that meets you need.

Yes, I have made a wall based family that contains an opening that cuts the wall with height parameters to locate the opening, it then has a conductor head and downspout.

This family is exactly what I'm looking for except the insert point is way above the object so I can't insert it into a wall at the correct height.  I can insert it into the model but when I try to move it up to the correct height I get a warning that the family isn't cutting anything.
