Hi All,I have RAC2010, and have loaded the Metric library, if I need to load Imperial library , how do  I do it?

b) Can we have both the librarys loaded together and if so how do we do it? and are there any implications such as slowing of the system due to it.

Your suggestion would be appreciated, thanx in advance

yes you can, but why??

if you are using metric in your office (country) than you don't need the Imperial library, it's the same content just with imperial units...

there is no extra load on Revit, you can add as many libraries as you want, it's only a path in Revit to where your library sits.

Yes you can load more than one library.

In windows do the following:

Control Panel -->  Add Remove Programs  -->  Select Revit  --> Uninstall/Change

When you do this it will give you 3 options: Add of Remove Features, Repair or Reinstall, or Uninstall.

Select Add or Remove Features and you can add more libraries.


I for one like to use both, as I do projects in both metric & imperial countries, and the default library is not the one I use most.


Be Inspired!
