I am looking for a library of families of furniture elements, preferably, which is only detail components. I really don't need 3D families for my furniture - simple 2D detail components for each plan I got would do just fine and would also not overload the whole model and file because the workflow I want to implement is that I only load those 2D detail components into each plan view I got and that's all instead of having them in the model all around in general, which would display them in all 3D view etc and would, as I said, make things harder to work with. Any suggestions?

you can load them in as 3D elements, then turn them off in other views, or make a duplicate view with detailing if you only want to see the furniture in that view, I think it will work like that.

It sure will, but it is not what I am aiming for, as I said, I'm trying to keep a relatively small file size, not overloading it by loading in too many 3d objects such as furniture families and so on.

 

Thanks anyway!

If you can only find 3D furniture then use them.  You don't say how big your project is but I doubt they will not overload your project. 

 

We often use a combination of 3D, 2D or 2 1/2D items.  If we need the items to show in plan and elevation views, then we want 3D or 2 1/2D families.
