Is there a way to convert a wall based casework family to a floor based (free standing) casework family?  Thanks and sorry for the noob question.

When you specify a wall-based template, the hard-coded Host parameter is set > Wall.  You cannot toggle this parameter unfortunately.

 

The best approach would be to create a new casework family and copy & paste the geometry from the wall-based family in.  Then you can re-assign any constraints in the new family.

 

Thank you,
