Hide Wall Openings by category

Hello everyone!

I'm trying to hide the wall openings by template but I'm not able to find its category yet. I only found the "Shaft opening" category, but that's not what I need. Is it possible to do that?

 

Kind regards in advance!

A Wall opening cuts a hole in the wall.  What is there to hide?

The purpose is to export the model in IFC format without having the wall opens in the navigation tree in the IFC viewer

Instead of using the wall opening tool, You need to use one of the the following methods:

  1. Use a Face based Generic model or a window family with a void extrusion
  2. Edit wall profile to create openings

How are the openings created? Are they coming from Doors/Windows inserted into the Wall? If so, you could use Phasing to accomplish what you want to do. 

 

Wall Phase Created=Existing. Window/Door Phase Created=New Construction.

I created the wall opening using the wall opening tool. Please note that I know how to make openings editing the wall profile and also using doors and windows. But I need to be able to hide wall openings created with the wall opening tool.

You may have misunderstood the reply...I am aware and confident that you know how to create openings using edit profile. However, what I meant to say is that if you use the Opening tool,  you will not be able to avoid it the IFC tree.. because

  • it can neither be hidden once it exists 
  • nor can it be phased to export model without it (openings using this tool inherit the phase of the host)

Therefore I reiterate:

  1. if you want export the opening but not have it listed in the IFC tree:
    • you need to create the openings by editing the wall's profiles.
  2. If you do not want to export the openings to IFC:
    • you will need to use to loadable family to cut the wall with (ie: a face based or wall based family with a void cutting the host therein) - these are phase-able ie: will allow you to export to IFC without the opening
