How to Cut Openings for Windows and Doors when you have linked architectural walls to your structural model?

It’s quite common to have two different files for architecture and structure in Revit workflows. If an architect is placing windows or doors in his file, the void is not cut in the structural wall. In this case structural engineers should place door/window openings by themselves.
