trmurphy posted a topic in Autodesk Revithi anyone know if it is possible to create a family using existing family members and not extrusions? what i need to do is create a family consisting of a single vertical plane unistrut frame that is copied along a bay of columns. however since the size of the unistrut can change i would rather be able to open the family and change the strut from a drop down menu from the unistrut family, then save the parent family and all change within that bay. hope thats clear! like in CAD where you create a block then you just have to change it once when there's multiple instances. i know this is similar to families but in cad you could make a block out of multiple blocks cant seem to do that in revit any help appreciated!
Automatic Pump Selection - Revit MEP 2013
onealex posted a topic in Revit MEPHas anyone developed a way on Revit MEP 2013 to automatically select a pump from a loaded family based on a specific flow rate calculated? As opposed to manually selecting the pump size yourself? It would be much appreciated if anyone can shine any light on this subject! Alex
Default Instance Parameters
magic_man1 posted a topic in Autodesk RevitI am modifying a pre-existing electrical panel family and the goal is to create text on the panel in elevation view to reflect the panel name. The issue I have seems to be that even though I type a default panel name in the "Panel Name" parameter (I used "zzz" so the value would stand out), when I load this family into a project and attempt to place my first panel, it comes in with a blank value in the "Panel Name" parameter slot. Typically, this would come in with a value of: "zzz". Again, this is an "out of the box" family that I am attempting to modify, so I am partly wondering if this is because a something has been done to force this field come into a project empty. Any ideas / thoughts are much appreciated. I will also say, that once the panel is inserted, you can give it a name, then update the family to include the functionality and everything works great (because it has a name now). The problem is, getting it to come in with a default name, so you can change it after placing it into the project. (I am using Revit MEP 2011) Thanks,
