Draw recess by Revit family

Any void Revit families, which cut material out of the host can be saved as a recess in the IMPACT database. 

IMPACT database requires certain parameters in order to save the recess as it appears in the Revit model.  

Recess is defined as geometry, which depth can be control by the user. Therefore, geometry parameters must be defined in the family. 

IMPORTANT: IMPACT saves the recess according to parameters in the family, not according to the geometry. 

Rectangular & Polygon recess

Geometry

IMPACT Height / Height  - Height of the recess 

IMPACT Width / Width - Width of the recess
