Greetings All !

I'm new in Revit. Just  lerned it. I have a question very important for the custom users Winking

 

Is there some quick method to edit furniture ?

Maybe just "model in place" - but seeing the enviroment...?

I'm terrify by this method:

- loading a file with furniture.

- Position it, editing (without seeing enviroment - so measure first),

- saving file (becouse I don't want to change orginal - for example),

- and load a file another time... Sad  (and positioning)

 

I'm advanced with programs like 3d max, or CAD systems. The transformation of furnitures are very simple and quick. In revit the same takes a lot of time.... Sad

Help !

"Is there some quick method to edit furniture ?" - What do you mean? what you ask is unclear, you can edit all kind of families in revit, just select the family in project, go to options bar and "Edit family" or you can Open the family you want, OR are you trying to ask how to create new Furniture??? If it so, you have Templates to create all kind of families in revit too, just File > New > Family, don't use "In-Place" family to create furniture....

1. I'm asking of some quick transform similar to "Uniform Scale" i 3Ds or "strech" in CAD.

(Quick transform furnitures to made arrangement quicker and easier)

 

2. Is there any method to model/edit furniture with visible whole "scene" (enviroment) ??

It would be easier to project furnitures, which will be made to order.

One thing you must understand, CAD is not PARAMETRIC.... REVIT is, so when you create a PARAMETRIC furniture you give parameters to control EVERYTHING you want in that family (material, lenght, width, height, position object/floor, etc), you can choose if you want those parameters in "INSTANCE OR TYPE" then in project you can change one parameter only in one object (furniture) OR in ALL objects in the same family, that's why sometimes the "Scale, stretch" whatever you want to call it, don't make much sence.

Ok. Thanks. I understand now.

Everything depends of models I have in my library. There are many models to download without any parameters (even basic like width, height, lenght...). The best reason - I gues - is to made my own library.

 

Some models are very beautiful, but useles in this case Sad

Thanks for reply.

 

Ad 2.> I found modeling in place method - when You create "in place" your furniture. There the enviroment are visible !

BUT,

Is there the same method to edit existing - imported model ???
