Revit Families – Manufacturer’s Content Grows!!

March 26, 2011

Plumbing Fixtures:
…Toto – http://www.totousa.com/
Just navigate to the product, select “Downloads & Resources” and the BIM
Families (Revit Only) will come up. Be aware these are faced based families so you will need to select Place on Face or Place on Workplane in your Tools ribbon assuming your workplane is set to the appropriate face.

…Solatube – http://www.solatube.com/commercial/technical-resources/index.php
You can find the Revit families under the BIM menu on this page. The family places well on roofs but is without a curb component so you will need to construct a separate family or modify the Solatube family. The family does cut a round hole in the roof component but I haven’t determined if Revit sees the family as a window portal yet. I’ll post an update after testing.

If you are on our Linkedin Discussion group you’ll notice this is a repeat notification.  Sometimes content like this gets bridged between the two resources and sometimes it doesn’t so if you want to montior the Linkedin Discussion group please feel free to join Linkedin and search out our group under “SARUG”
