2D CAD detail in Revit Window family

How to add 2D CAD detail inside Revit Window family so you can 
show it in the project on the callout views or sections. 


Go to edit family mode of a window (or different object) and create a section view.

Insert a 2D detail component by going to Insert -> Load a family

Go to Section View and place the 2D CAD component. On the video (I dragged and dropped the family from the project browser, the other method would be to select Annotate->Detail Component)

Remember to check visibility settings. The best method would be to make it visible in the section views on the highest level of detail.

This method can by applied to any type of revit family component. This way you can create stunning library that can be later used in the project envoirenment for detailing purposes.
