Thanks for the email to one of our Metal Framing Floor+ users, whose question has encouraged me to write this blog post. He asked this question: “I need the Revit® families of profiles Howick 89 x 41.3 for metal roof and floor, is it possible?” Framing process is not easy, and it requires many different framing profiles. So, in this blog post I would like to explain how building designers can add required Revit families to their framing models.
There are two ways of adding new Revit family type to the project:
- First – you can find new types in the default library that we provide together with our product Metal Framing Floor+;
- Second – create a new Revit family type by yourself.
Further I’ll provide the way how to add required new Revit families of profiles. This way can be used not only when working with Metal Framing Floor+ but with other our BIM solutions for framing as well: Metal Framing Wall+, Metal Framing Rafter+ or Metal Framing Truss+.
