(( At first i should say for this post i use WFRC except Wall , Floor , Roof , Ceiling. ))
I saw lot of people who want have good presentation in Revit for WFRC.
Many of them are using Create Part Command and some times Model in Place or some sort of family combination.
But the question is what is the ability for each one of this method. If you use Create Part command you can get presentation over the project model .
For example you can select Wall from the project and isolate that part and then convert the Isolate view to Hide view.
Now you can Create your own presentation with Create Part Command ( This ability is very good because you can create presentation on the one segments of the project model ) After that you have many ability like show shape Handles , Divide Part , Exclude Division Profile and etc.
But you have a lot of limitation in create part tool , for example all of the parts then coming from the base objects WFRC are box shape and for good presentation you need more detail much as box shape.
What about the Model in Place or some sort of Family combination?!?! This item can produce better shape buuut you miss all of ability then you have in Create Part Command (( show shape Handles , Divide Part , Exclude Division Profile and etc. ))
What about the combination of this two method ?!?!
The Method then I want to show you is very simple and you can use this method in which segments of your project model very simple . Every thing you need is some type of family for combine with WFRC category.
First Example is the top picture , for this wall you need family like the below pictures
Brick Pattern Family with void, the void should be combine with the host object and cover all of the Brick Pattern as you see in the picture.

Next Family is the top picture and this is for cutting the exterior layer of the Wall.

Next Family is the top picture and this is for cutting in the Interior layer of the Wall or for Floor Tile.

Now you have base wall and you can start to place your family on the wall.
And after that you need to use Cut command for combine family with wall like below picture
The next step is for Interior side and you can see is the same as exterior side.
Final Step for placement is Brick Pattern but you need to use Tab Key on your keyboard for select correct face for this family , because you need to place this family on the face of structure layer.
Now you can see this shape in your project area and in fact you combined the family with WFRC category with this method.
Final step is Create Part Command and now you have all ability for this method
You can see Floor Presentation in the below picture for KSD Structure Floor and Finishing layer as Tile.
